The grand Chelston estate on Grape Bay Beach, a most famous area of Bermuda with pink sand beaches, is one of the most significant estates in the world.
The impressive 14-acre beachfront estate was recently the subject of a carefully orchestrated three-year renovation by a world-class team of international architects, builders, and craftsmen. The result is a private family compound of the finest caliber. In addition to the 10,000 square foot main house, accommodation includes three, three-bedroom guest cottages; a two-bedroom staff cottage, as well as a pool house, and a charming beach pavilion. Gated entry, an almost Olympic size pool, a croquet lawn, acres of rolling lawns, and more.
Incorporating the best of traditional Bermuda design, the main house, on three levels, is light-filled and spacious. High ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, multiple sets of French doors, generous room proportions and a general consistency of finishes throughout the estate are the estate’s hallmarks.
Originally designed and constructed between 1939-1941 for Carbon Petroleum Dubbs, Chelston was conveyed to the Government of The United States of America in 1964. For over 30 years, the property served as the official Bermuda residence of the United States Consul General. The list of distinguished visitors to Chelston is lengthy. The estate is especially well loved in the Bermuda community for its memorable July 4th extravaganzas, at which more than 2,000 guests gathered each year to celebrate America's birthday.
The main house occupies a commanding position approximately 200 feet above sea level with awe-inspiring views of the Atlantic Ocean, the City of Hamilton, and the gardens and sweeping lawns that comprise the estate.
Interior: 17,000 sq. ft.; Grounds: 14.1 acres
