Tenure: Freehold

An impressive modern Palladian country house in a tranquil location close to Sidmouth and the Coast, set in formal gardens and accessed by a long private drive providing seclusion, surrounded by 125 acres of pastureland. For sale by private treaty.

Chineway occupies a delightful secluded elevated setting just to the north of the coastal resort of Sidmouth within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Surrounded by its own extensive grounds, the adjoining rolling countryside and woodland offers excellent walking and riding from the property. The Regency town
of Sidmouth with its long esplanade and wide beaches, located on the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast has excellent opportunities for
coastal walking, fishing and swimming. The town offers a wide range of amenities including restaurants, independent shops, Waitrose,
cinema and a wide range of sporting facilities. Whilst surrounded by beautiful countryside, the property is easily accessible, close to the A30/A303 and connections to London, whilst the market town of Honiton has a main line rail link to London Waterloo. The Cathedral City of Exeter some ten miles to the west offers a further range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. There is a
mainline railway service to London Paddington, M5 access and Exeter International Airport offers a variety of flights within the UK and Europe.

The Property
This exceptional house was commissioned and subsequently extended by the current owners to create a country property with all the advantages of a contemporary home but with the style and
symmetry of the classic Palladian style. The build quality is of an extremely high standard with the use of dressed Bath stone, Welsh slate roof with architectural features such as a portico and a central cupola roof light. The attention to detail also applies to the interior of the house which marries all the modern conveniences one would
expect of a property of this calibre with quality features such as a cantilevered marble staircase, marble floors, bespoke hardwood joinery and beautiful reclaimed features such as the drawing room fire surround. The house is exceptionally light and spacious with restful rural views from all of the principal rooms over the terrace and grounds to the countryside beyond. The accommodation offers great flexibility and is perfectly suited to entertaining on a grand scale.
There is also planning permission in place for a further extension to the property.

Outside
The house is approached through a discrete gated entrance over a long private drive which sweeps into the gravelled turning and parking courtyard. The landscaped gardens are now reaching
maturity, to the southwest of the property are a series of formal garden rooms including a walled garden, parterre and pergola. The main garden to the south east of the house is largely laid to lawn
with specimen trees, flanked by beds of spring flowering shrubs which successfully frame the unspoilt views.

Ancillary Buildings
Within the grounds are a number of ancillary buildings. On the far side of the courtyard is a Double Garage (8m x 6.2m), as well as the discretely located Pavilion and Studio cottages. These three buildings are all built in the classical style and create a complementary ensemble with the house. The separate annexes provide the opportunity for staff or extra family ccommodation and have scope for enlargement. Beyond the gardens are a number of flexible modern outbuildings, that would be suitable for a variety of uses, from equestrian to the storage of classic cars or boats. These buildings comprise of a steel framed General Purpose Barn (22m x 13m) and Storage Barn (22m x 7m). On the far side of the property close to the public highway are two new buildings, a steel framed General Purpose Barn (18m x 12m) and a timber Stable Block with four loose boxes and a fodder store, both offering potential for alternative uses (STPP).

Planning
Chineway benefits from two extant planning permissions which enable prospective purchasers to create a larger 7 bedroom property with extended entertaining/living space (Extension to garage, two storey extensions to house and reading room ref. 17/1859/FUL granted 14th September 2017) and further develop the range of ancillary buildings (Single storey extensions to garage and studio to form games/hobbies room ref. 18/1590/FUL granted 9th August 2018).

The Land
The land comprises of approximately 124.85 acres of largely level pastureland with a small area of native woodland which provides protection and amenity use for the estate.
