Built by the late David Cheney, the north-facing main house boasts soaring high ceilings, travertine and oak flooring, bespoke wrought iron features and hand selected European light fittings throughout.

Plaster work was done by Donovan Allen of Heritage Plastering, who told WILLIAMS MEDIA, “David Cheney was a true master in the ability to foresee, design and finish each and every home he built to a standard far above the expectations of his clients and piers. The home at Mylor is no exception. Two words stand out when thinking of my brief with David at our first meeting there: ‘Tuscan Villa’. 

We discussed the possibilities of creating wall finishes and mouldings to compliment such a home and its stables that would sit equally as well nestled proudly amongst the hills of Tuscany.  Creating a finish not of plastic and modern paint but of old and timeless limewashes and natural materials. To create a home that is brand new but has the appearance of age.

David was the most passionate builder I have ever had the pleasure to work with, his love for the old translated through his designs of his new construction projects, each created and built with love and passion from all whom laid hands to the bricks, the stone, the plaster, the materials, each to sit proudly in the hearts and minds of every person that helped create these fabulous buildings that became a David Cheney iconic home.”
