Description

The Toll House is a fascinating Grade II building originally built as lodge cottage for the Tewkesbury Turnpike Trust in 1826. Mythe Bridge was originally a toll bridge, the tolls were removed in 1850 and the resulting property was renovated 45 years ago, with first floor further expansion about 30 years ago, to create a spacious residential dwelling in an extraordinary location. Complimenting the property is the separate Alum House which now provides holiday accommodation income.

The ground floor comprises good sized entrance hall kitchen & breakfast room and superb sitting room with elevated views over the river. There is also a useful bedroom / study with shower room adjacent and integral access to the workshop and garage.

At first floor / bridge level is the master bedroom which enjoys excellent river views and a further bedroom & bathroom.

The Alum House is situated approximately 30 yards from the Toll House providing useful ancillary accommodation over two levels.

The property is accessed via a lane running to the side of the Mythe bridge leading down to a parking area for the house and open area by the river. The Toll House is in an elevated location with large terraced area to the south and lawned area leading to the pontoon with fishing & mooring rights.

There is storage for the house within the brick gothic arches before the bridge steelwork.
