Sandars

Before

A fine example of a 17 th century Dartmoor longhouse which has remained virtually unaltered. The Grade II* house was purchased by the DHBT for restoration.

Sandars

After

The cost of the restoration was beyond the means of the Trust at that time, and whilst still in a dilapidated state it was sold to the Landmark Trust who undertook its restoration.

The Role of DHBT – Buy and preserve

The DHBT may buy and preserve a building until a sustainable long term solution is found. The DHBT may sell the property to secure a new future within the local community.
