Tenure: Freehold

Poole stands in an elevated position with fine views over fields and surrounding countryside. The present house is early 18th century and is Listed Grade ll with parts dating back to the 16th century. The house is constructed principally of colour washed rendered cob and stone under a thatched roof of water reed.

A particular feature of the house is its 17th century plank and chamfered muntin screen. There is a detached garage block with an integral store and a separate self-contained studio flat above. The house is approached by a private drive, which leads to the main entrance of the property. The entrance porch takes you through to the hall with oak staircase. The dining room features a high-beamed ceiling, oak panelled window seats and 19th century oak parquet floor. The sitting room is light and spacious, with 19th century pine fireplace and mantle. This room leads through to the study, with fitted ceiling height book shelves. The garden room features a pair of French windows, which opens out into a terraced area in the garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room features an inglenook fireplace with oak beam and mantelpiece with inset oil fired Aga. There is a range of useful fitted cupboards. The scullery has further fitted cupboards, a Belfast sink and plumbing for a washing machine with pantry and a door leading out to the garden. The oak staircase from the hall leads to the first floor accommodation; there are four double bedrooms (one en-suite), a family bathroom and shower room.

The majority of the ground floor and upstairs rooms at Poole enjoy uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside.

Poole is situated in a peaceful, idyllic location within walking distance of the thriving village of Sandford, with a church, excellent village school and pre-school run in the village hall, a community post office and shop, two inns, and a garage. Sandford Cricket Club, in the beautiful grounds of Creedy Park is one of the premier cricket clubs in Devon.

A wider range of facilities is available in the market town of Crediton, about two miles south. Crediton is one of Devon's most historic towns with a magnificent parish church. It is a thriving community with a number of useful facilities including a leisure centre with excellent swimming pool and other facilities; Crediton has a well-regarded farmers' market every other weekend in the Market Square.

There is a good comprehensive school, Queen Elizabeth Community College in Crediton. There are independent schools for boys and girls of all ages in both Exeter and Blundell's in Tiverton.

The city and county town of Exeter is about eight miles south and has an excellent range of educational, cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. There is also a John Lewis and Waitrose store.

The garden and grounds (approximately 5.5 acres) surround and protect Poole and are mainly laid to lawn, shrubberies and flower beds with mature trees. Outside the garden room is a paved area with cobbled path around to the kitchen door where there is a further paved area. There is a productive vegetable patch with greenhouse and also a summerhouse. The main lawn sweeps down to the Sulley brook.

The land is laid to pasture with mixed woodland and a lake. The lake with its reed beds and floating duck house is a haven for a variety of wildlife. The grounds run down to a small stream, the Sulley Brook, which flows on the eastern boundary of the property and there are also remains on an old cider orchard. Both paddocks have separate road access and are often let out to a local farmer for grazing sheep and making hay.
