The property

... 1½ miles from Stoke Gabriel is Sandridge Barton, a splendid Georgian house with indoor swimming pool in its own private grounds above the wide estuary of the beautiful River Dart. A quarter of a mile of private drive leads gently down a valley to the house, which looks over its enclosed sloping garden (table/chairs, barbecue) with stream and three ponds (unfenced, children beware), and a partly wooded valley beyond leading down to the river. It is a fine view; all the fields and woods that run to the river are part of the estate, excellent for bird life (shelduck on the ponds, egrets nesting on the estuary). You are welcome to walk the estate with its beech and oak woods (bluebells), adhering to the country code.

Behind the house is a games barn (table tennis), leading through to a snooker room (full-sized table, table football).

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 (logs included), double French windows leading to the terrace overlooking the garden, much comfort. Sitting room with comfy seating for 6, TV/Sky/DVD/video and 5 steps up (lockable doors) to the swimming pool. Large L-shaped dining/snug/fitted kitchen with table comfortably seating 10 (12 chairs), and snug area with open fireplace, flagstoned floor, soft sofas, TV/DVD/video and double doors to patio. Excellent, well-equipped kitchen with wood floor, dishwasher, microwave, 4-door Aga, electric cooker, freezer, larder fridge, island with 2-ring ceramic hob. Utility room (fridge-freezer, washing machine, tumble drier). Loo.

Lower floor: from the hall, stairs down to a bar area and formal dining room seating 10 with French windows to terrace; small kitchenette (electric oven/induction hob, sink, kettle, coffee maker) with stairs up to main kitchen.

From the utility room, stairs (stairgate) down to a more basic annexe with double bed (footboard), TV, en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower) and door to the kitchenette; door to garden.

Upstairs, five more bedrooms:-

spacious master double (6' sleigh bed) looking to the river with TV/DVD and huge en suite bathroom (bath plus hand-shower, washbasin) with own separate shower-room (shower, loo). From the bathroom, cast iron spiral stairs down to the swimming pool

double (5' bed) facing the river

twin (footboards) facing the river

double (footboards)

twin (one bed a 2’6” truckle)

Bathroom (suite plus hand-shower) and shower-room (suite).

The large indoor heated swimming pool is magnificent, built to fit 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. Changing room (towels provided) with loo, and a shower.

Damages Deposit £500. This is a marvellous place.

During September and October 2017, a new concrete floor is being laid in the courtyard of the linhay, 50 yards from Sandridge Barton house. It is not anticipated that the work will affect the property since noise will be kept to a minimum and neither access nor the parking area will be obstructed.

We enjoyed a fabulous family holiday at Sandridge Barton and would wholeheartedly recommend this location. There were ten of us and we were always comfortable. The pool, snooker and table-tennis had regular use. Cooking and other facilities were excellent. Charlie, the caretaker was always helpful - though we didn't need to call on him for any assistance. We will definitely return. Bill Neal
