A pretty Victorian cottage complete with period features and its own TRAIN is expected to sell for more than £550,000 at auction.

Old Station Cottage is a Grade II listed former train station which was built in 1844.

It was used as a station until the late 1970s and underwent an extensive renovation in 1988.

The property, in Mangotsfield, Bristol, comes with its own steam train and carriage and has been described as being “steeped in history”.

It was put on the market this week and is expected to sell for £550,000 when it goes under the hammer on December 3.

The train and carriage sit on a piece of track in the grounds of the home, just metres from an old red phone box.

The rest of the garden, which is mostly lawned, is dotted with signs from the home’s previous life as North Mangotsfield Railway Station and Dramway Toll House.

Paul Lawrence, from David James & Partners, described the property as a “lovely family home”.

He added: “It has got quite a unique feel to it. The layout has the feel of an old train station, there are three reception rooms and at the end of the property is where the ticket station was.

“There is a small bit of track and that is where the train is located. It is quite unique and the first home I have seen which comes with its own train.

“Old Station Cottage is a big old place and will make a lovely family home. It is in a great location and we’ve had plenty of interest in it.”

Old Station Cottage boasts four bedrooms, four reception rooms and a triple garage.
