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.

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.

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.”
