The place:
Stoke Gabriel: pretty and beautifully situated village (three pubs, PO, shops, restaurant, medieval church) sloping to a little quay (good crabbing) and creek (boats) off the river Dart estuary. Sandy beaches at Torbay, and Totnes (attractive old town on the Dart), each 4 miles. Brixham, good golf (Churston) and car ferry to Dartmouth (town), 5 miles.

The property:


... Sandridge Barton is a sensational property: position, view, house, standard, privacy, large indoor heated swimming pool, full-sized snooker table; what more does one want?

It is 1½ miles from Stoke Gabriel. A quarter of a mile of private drive takes you gently down the valley to the south-facing, original Georgian house with in-keeping extensions. It looks over its enclosed garden (table/chairs, barbecue) with running stream (unfenced, children beware), down to three ponds and partly wooded valley leading to the wide estuary of the river Dart. It is a fine view; all the fields and woods that run to the river are part of the estate, excellent particularly for bird life (shelduck on the ponds, egrets nest on the estuary). Behind the house are former barns; the nearest barn is now a large estate office (phone, office available for use by arrangement, table tennis), and next door the excellent snooker room with full-sized table. You are welcome to walk the estate, adhering to the country code - some excellent beech and oak woods (bluebells).

The house - which has large rooms, filled with light - is a spacious, comfortable home.

Ground floor: flagstone-floored entrance hall off which an elegant drawing room (comfortable seating for 8) with white marble open fireplace, double French doors leading to the terrace overlooking the garden, much comfort.

Along the corridor, a formal dining room seating 8 with ornamental fireplace and 5 steps up (lockable doors) to the swimming pool. Large L-shaped dining/snug/fitted kitchen with dining table comfortably seating 8 (10 chairs), and snug area with big open fireplace, flagstoned floor, soft sofas, TV/Sky/DVD/video and double doors to patio. Excellent, well-equipped fitted, handmade kitchen with wood floor, double Belfast sink, dishwasher, microwave, 4-door Aga, oven, freezer, larder fridge, ‘island' with 2-ring ceramic hob. Utility room with fridge-freezer, washing machine, tumble drier, Sheila Maid. Separate loo (washbasin). From the utility room, stairs (stairgate) down to a more basic (3 star) annexe with double bed, TV and en suite bathroom (suite), and door to garden.

Upstairs, the extremely spacious double-windowed master double bedroom looking to the river with 6' sleigh bed, VDU/DVD/video and luxurious en suite bathroom with large power-shower, central bath plus hand-shower, basin and separate loo. From this bathroom, a cast iron spiral staircase leads directly down to the swimming pool. Another double bedroom and a twin room face the river. At the back of the house are a twin bedroom and a single with pull-out 2’6" truckle bed. Two more bathrooms (suites plus hand-showers). Lower floor: from the hall a staircase leads down to the low former cellar - now a children’s playroom with comfy chairs, flagstoned floor (rugs), TV/DVD, French doors to terrace.

The indoor heated swimming pool is magnificent, built to fit into the Georgian style of the house - columns, animal murals, a large glass domed ceiling over the mosaic-lined pool (30' x 15' x 4'9" deep), two large French windows leading to the terrace overlooking the valley, so plenty of lounging space. There is a changing room (towels provided) with loo and washbasin, and a shower.

This is a marvellous place, everything included. No pets permitted in the house, but there are kennels available. Damages Deposit £500.
