This former cider press that dates back to the 1700s has been converted into a unique cottage that is up for sale.
The Pound House, in Blagdon, is Grade II listed and was transformed into a home in the 1980s, retaining its original cider press and several period features.
The exterior of the building has a slate roof and a hip-roofed porch, a timber mullioned window and a granite chamfered doorway with a plank door.
Inside, there are exposed beams, flagstone flooring, wood burner and operational original cider press.
There are three floors on the property, with the ground floor comprising the cider press workings, a study, a kitchen/dining room, a rear lobby, a pantry, a master bedroom with an en-suite, and a shower room.
On the first floor is a sitting room and a second bedroom, while the third floor has another bedroom and a gallery space.
Outside the property has a garage, a garden space with a variety of trees, shrubs and flowers, lawned area and paved terrace with pergola over.
The property is being marketed by Marchand Petit for £750,000.
Rebecca Martin of Marchand Petit commented: “As a former 18th-century cider press, The Pound House is brimming with character and history.
“The original cider press itself remains fully operational and is a real focal point! Add in acres of exposed beam and a quintessentially English country garden, not to mention a location on the fringes of Totnes, and you have the makings of a really unique, special home.”
