Chessington is arguably one of Exmouth's finest properties, beautifully and privately situated off Cranford Avenue, approached via a long private driveway.

The house was designed by Walter Cave and built in 1909 in an ‘Arts & Crafts’ style and is of cavity brick construction, with rendered colour washed elevations, under a clay tiled roof. The property has some fine period detail, including panelled doors, exposed ceiling timbers and beautiful fireplaces, expected of the period. The house sits comfortably within private gardens extending to 0.8 acres.

The accommodation is elegantly appointed and proportioned, with an excellent level of natural light, complemented by typically high ceilings of the period. The ground floor offers impressively proportioned reception rooms including a 20’ drawing room, 21’ sitting room, separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, large study and downstairs WC. The kitchen has been tastefully fitted with a good range of cabinets under Iroko worktops and a gas-fired Aga, adjoining which is a utility room.

The first floor accommodation is equally impressive, with a superb galleried landing, two large bedroom suites, with en-suite bath and shower rooms, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Worthy of particular note are the lovely views in a south-westerly direction to the sea.

Outside, Chessington is approached via a long tarmac access which leads to a large tarmac driveway where there is a double garage.

Lying on the eastern side of the site is a brick built potting shed with a traditional detached timber and glass greenhouse, a modern orangery and wonderful private gardens which all provide an excellent entertaining space.
