This spectacular 14-acre beachfront estate, named Chelston, is located at 12 Grape Bay Drive on Grape Bay Beach in Bermuda. It was originally designed and constructed between 1939-1941 for Carbon Petroleum Dubbs (an innovator of the ‘cracking’ process through which crude oil is refined), 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 gated property features a 10,000 square foot main house, 3 three-bedroom guest cottages, a 2-bedroom staff cottage, 75′ x 40′ infinity swimming pool, pool house, quaint beach pavilion, rolling lawns and a croquet lawn. The main house features formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen, library with salt-water aquarium, family room, gym and a home theater. It is listed at $45,000,000.
