The former station at Brampford Speke was part of the Exe Valley Railway, and is up for sale for £550k.


I have been watching The Damned United, which is a lesson relevant for today.

From Somerset Live which references Devon Live ...

The house is accessed either on foot, along a public footpath crossing an iron footbridge over the River Exe and through a meadow, or through a private ford only passable by a four-wheel drive vehicle during the summer months.

The quirky converted home consists of the detached three-bedroom railway station, an old railway carriage, a wooden chalet and a pond, as well as picturesque rural views.

The detached three-bedroom house has two reception rooms, a beautiful garden room, and the former waiting room, which is now the sitting room opening out to the station platform.

An inner hall leads to the kitchen, a bathroom and the former ladies waiting room, which is now a second bedroom with a central fireplace.

The former ticket office, now the principal bedroom with a built-in wardrobe, adjoins the sitting room with the ticket hatch still in place.

As for future use ...

The one-off Exe Valley property also comes with a railway carriage with further potential - perhaps for a quirky work from home space.

There is no chance of trainspotting as the original railway track has been removed and replaced with lawn. However, the large pond with flora and fauna makes this a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), with meadow areas and rewilded woodland to explore.
