The Property - Chattan Hall is an aspirational country home forming the principal part of a Victorian mansion house, which is believed to have been built in the mid 1860s. Features typical of Victorian architecture are everywhere including high ceilings, tall windows and ornate cornicing with an abundance of natural light throughout. Despite its historical origins, the property is not listed and has undergone a programme of sympathetic improvements, creating a superlative home with the perfect blend of contemporary décor, period grandeur and superb modern convenience. Owing to the rural position adjoining open fields, the property enjoys delightful, far-reaching views across the Axe Valley.
 
The programme of improvements was a great triumph, with the unique identity and sociable appeal of each of the principal rooms left unspoilt, particularly in the superb kitchen/breakfast room, the formal yet appealing dining room and the breath-taking drawing room. A nonetheless charming addition to the rear of the property, and therefore enjoying direct access to the glorious gardens, the conservatory is presently used as a large art studio. Upstairs, there are three fabulous bedrooms, including a principal bedroom suite complete with dressing area and ensuite bathroom, alongside family bath- and shower rooms.
 
Although no stone was left unturned during the renovation project, there remains scope for a new owner to make their mark on Chattan Hall, subject to any necessary consents being achieved. Set slightly apart from the property is a two storey coach house, thought to be contemporary with the house, which suggests great potential for conversion to ancillary accommodation, perhaps for dependent relatives or to derive an income stream if desired. The large boarded attic space could also be the perfect conversion opportunity should additional accommodation within the main house be required.

There is ample parking on the sweeping gravelled private driveway.

Nearby is the stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, on which Lyme Regis and Sidmouth rate highly among the many appealing destinations, both easily accessible from the property.
