Transformed Toll House

We were delighted to have been involved in renovating the iconic Toll House for East Devon District Council. Dating back to the 1800s, the property has such an interesting history in the local area and will become a lovely home an EDDC resident.

EDDC comments:

“East Devon District Council’s principle maintenance contractor, Ian Williams, have recently renovated one of our listed properties, The Old Toll House. Dating from the early 1800’s, the Toll House, controlled the approach to the town of Sidmouth. The Toll House is located at the start of the Byes riverside walk and is sited adjacent to Waterloo Bridge. The toll gate was removed during the Second World War; this gate was said to have been the front gate to ‘Egypt’.  The property will be home to some of our residents.  

A Sidmouth resident has also stated: “The renovators have done an excellent job and the result is a credit to EDDC and Sidmouth” 

Ian Williams comments: “We are delighted to have been involved in renovating such an iconic property that has such an interesting history in the local area and creating a new home for EDDC residents. We received come great feedback during the works from the general public how all agreed how nice the building now looked.”
