Property description

Strawbridge House comprises a substantial country house that commands a fine south facing position overlooking its own grounds, a mixture of gardens, pasture and woodlands. The house, which is now in need of restoration, offers excellent family accommodation which comprises, on the ground floor, entrance hall, leading to hall with principal staircase, with cloakroom off, two magnificent south facing reception rooms and kitchen. To the rear of the house there is a further utility room, snooker room, pantry, cloakroom and secondary kitchen. On the first floor there are four principal bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities, a dressing room, two further family bathrooms and two bedrooms to the rear. Stairs leading to the second floor lead to seventh bedroom and continue to four attic rooms. The house enjoys the benefit of extensive cellars running underneath the main part of the house accessed from stairs in the main entrance hall. The accommodation to the rear of the house is serviced by its own access and linked to the main house by its own separate staircase.


Situated to the west of the house, there are a range of outbuildings forming a courtyard which enjoy the benefit of separate access onto an unclassified council road. The buildings may be suitable for conversion for a number of alternative uses subject to obtaining the appropriate consents.


Strawbridge House lies at the end of an attractive driveway in an elevated position surrounded by former gardens and grounds. Lying to the south of the house, there are three former paddocks totalling some 16.96 acres plus to the west a particularly attractive parcel of amenity woodland of some 2.3 acres. The land which abuts the River Lew to the west provides the house with privacy, amenity and the opportunity to pursue a number of equestrian, conservation or other rural pursuits.


Strawbridge House is offered for sale by auction as a whole at 2.30 pm on 25th July 2019 at Okehampton Golf Club, Off Tors Road, Okehampton, EX20 1EF.


The property is offered freehold.


We are unaware of any planning permissions affecting the property.


The property is offered for sale with a guide price of £550,000*.


The property is sold subject to the common auction Conditions for Real Estate Auctions (4th edition).

*The above guide price is an indication of the figure which the minimum price at which the seller is prepared to sell will fall within 10% of. The guide price is different from the reserve price.

The property will be sold subject to the reserve price. The reserve price is the minimum price at which the auctioneer is authorised by the seller to sell the property at auction. The property may be sold to the highest bidder at or above the reserve price, but the auctioneer is not authorised to sell at a figure below the reserve price. The amount of any reserve price remains strictly confidential to the auctioneer, the auctioneer’s staff, and the seller.

Both the guide and the reserve prices are subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. It is the responsibility of interested parties to register their interest and regularly check for updated information regarding the property including changes to the guide price.


The Auction Pack, containing the contract and special conditions of the sale, should be obtained from Foot Anstey, Senate Court, Southernhay Gardens, Exeter EX1 1NT. The solicitor dealing with the auction pack is Ms Kate Lucas ([use Contact Agent Button]). The content of the auction pack will not be read at the time of sale; the purchaser will be deemed to have bid for the property in the full knowledge of their content.


The successful purchaser will be liable to pay a buyer’s administration fee of £300 (inclusive of VAT) to the selling Agent.
