Railway station conversions and house with a railway connection
Beeching recommended the closure of one third of Britain's 18,000 mile railway network, mainly rural branches and cross country lines, a policy known as the 'Beeching Axe'.

Price £595,000

Brentor Station House
Opened in June 1890, Brentor Station was built for The London and South Western Railway Company as part of their improved rail link between London Waterloo and Plymouth. The line eventually closed in 1968. The former station and station managers house was converted to create a 3/5 bedroom property which still retains many of the original features. It provides comfortable family living and has been operating as a character B&B in recent years. Set in four acres of land, the down platform has been recently restored in front of the building and the original station platform with the ornate station canopy is set to the rear. The two station signs are still in situ as is the up-line waiting room which has great potential to create a garden room or ancillary accommodation. more
