Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Lythecourt was commissioned in 1867 by Sir John Heathcoat-Amory for his own occupation and who later built Knightshayes Court, now owned by the National Trust. Much of the land surrounding is still owned by the Knightshayes Estate.

The house is set back and elevated from the road and lies within the picturesque Exe Valley about 3 miles to the north of Tiverton. The principal outlook is to the south and west, with lovely views out across the Exe Valley.

The living accommodation is substantial yet manageable, with delightful reception rooms so typical of this era, with high ceilings, mouldings, lovely fireplaces, window shutters etc. In addition to the main reception rooms is an imposing reception hall. There is a well fitted kitchen, a study and also a laundry room and boiler room. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and smaller single room, as well as three bathrooms which would make an ideal teenage den or be suitable for staff.

The house has been considerably upgraded over the last ten years with the provision of new bathrooms, new kitchen and much new wiring, plumbing and lighting.

Lying as it does just outside Tiverton the property would be perfect as a Boutique Hotel or an upmarket B& B establishment, especially as this area attracts a lot of tourists and a considerable amount of business from the shooting fraternity during the season.

The house is approached via two driveways, one being a private driveway to the north, while part of the other is shared with the dwellings which have been created out of the original stone barns, which are situated to the rear of the main house, but cause little intrusion.

The busy market town of Tiverton has a good shopping centre and schools in the town include Tiverton High School, Petroc College of Further Education and of course the renowned Blundell's School for Girls and Boys.

The property is set in approximately 4.25 acres with established gardens and mature trees on the south side, sloping down to a level paddock on the west side. There is a small range of stone buildings providing various stores.


Please see the floor plan for the dimensions. The internal photos may have been taken with a wide angle lens to show more of the rooms.
