This interesting Grade II listed toll-house with distinctive pointed arch windows and large enclosed porch was built by the Exeter Turnpike Trust in C1842. Now ‘Turnpike Cottage’, the property has two/three bedrooms and retains not only the flagstone floor at ground level but also an old toll-collection drawer under one of the windows.
The property is set in a good-sized plot which would suit the keen gardener and includes various mature shrubs, trees and wildlife pond. There is also a detached garage with inspection pit and parking for a number of vehicles.
Now in need of some updating this is an ideal opportunity to put your mark on a unique characterful and historic property, set in a semi-rural location.
