Sandridge Barton is a sensational property: position, view,

house, standard, privacy, large indoor heated swimming pool, full-sized

snooker table - all exceptional. It is 1� miles from Stoke Gabriel. A quarter of a mile of private drive leads gently down a

valley to the south-facing, original Georgian house with extensions. It looks over its enclosed garden (table/chairs,

barbecue) with 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 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), leading to the excellent snooker room (full-sized table,

table football). You are welcome to walk the estate, adhering to the country

code - some 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 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 8 (10 chairs),

and snug area with open fireplace, flagstoned floor, soft sofas,

Georgian style of the house - columns, animal murals, a large glass domed

The Devon region

The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved � sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.

Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton�s long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth�s beach and Salcombe�s location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don�t need to be brash; Bigbury�s huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.

Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area�s heart; Plymouth � the West Country�s biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) � is on the area�s edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.

Stoke Gabriel

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.
