we are privileged to present this attractive townhouse, situated in an enviable position on topsham’s famous strand with views of the beautiful exe estuary and haldon hills beyond, of brick and stone construction with a slate roof. the property has been lovingly updated by the current owners including a fully refitted kitchen, engineered oak flooring throughout the ground floor, bespoke fitted wardrobes in master bedroom, hardwood front door and new slate roof to front elevation, courtyard smokehouse and rear extension.
believed to date from the mid-18th century, rollstones, grade ii listed, retains many original features including exposed timber and brickwork walls. of particular historical interest is an original courtyard salmon smoke house which has been thoughtfully utilised for modern day living as a sitting area, together with original fireplace. it is also believed that it was the first property in the town to have electricity and the water pump supplied the strand with domestic water.
