The mansion was built in 1846 by William Burn for Colonel HR Ferguson-Davie, but was destroyed by fire in 1915 and rebuilt in 1916-21 for Arthur Ferguson-Davie. White (1850) noted that it was ‘delightfully situated on the west bank of the River Creedy . . . The mansion, built by the first baronet, has been frequently altered, and has still a modern appearance’. It was converted into thirteen residential units circa 1982.

Historic England, 2019, Creedy Park House, formal garden features, drying-lawn wall and game larder, Creedy Park, Sandford, Crediton, Devon, EX17 4EB (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV363532.

Notification that Creedy Park House, formal garden features, drying-lawn wall and game larder have been added to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The building is now listed at Grade II.
The building and structures were recommended for listing for the following principal reasons:
Architectural interest:
*for the house’s good Tudor design with Arts & Crafts influences by Walter Sarel, including the
asymmetrical front , tall brick stacks and gables, and double-height windows;
*despite subdivision, for the survival of decorative and architectural features in the principal rooms of the house, particularly the great hall, and the internal joinery throughout;
*for the quality of the materials and the execution of the decoration both externally and internally;
*the retention of the formal gardens to the south of the house with balustrades, terracing and water
features as designed by W A Nesfield add to the architectural interest of the house.
Historic interest:
*for its association with the historic Davie (later Ferguson-Davie) family for over 300 years;
*as a cohesive reflection of the changes which occurred at Creedy from the mid-C19 to the mid-C20.
Group value:
*with the Grade II-listed former stables (Rafters) to the west.
