Bell Tower House was built in the 1990s in the Georgian style, epitomising all that is best with this architecture. The large sash windows flood the property with light, and the elegant and symmetrical proportions are enhanced with some lovely details to the brickwork, the sweeping steps to the front door and the cupola with finials either side above the first floor arched window.
The heavy fielded panel front door opens to the impressive reception hall, with a dividing staircase rising to a galleried landing above. The room is enhanced by the light oak flooring, and just off is the main cloakroom. Double doors open to the drawing room, nearly 26 feet long and with elegant open fireplace and 2 sets of French windows to the terrace. In the middle part of the house are the family room and dining room, both with good views over the rear garden. The kitchen breakfast room is well fitted with a range of limed oak cabinets, which create a partial divide to the breakfast area, with views and French windows out onto the terrace. There is a decent sized utility room and smaller cloakroom adjacent.
On the first floor, the large landing has a bay window, an ideal place for a desk. The master suite is a well proportioned room, and has an en-suite bathroom and 2 dressing rooms. There is a guest suite of bedroom and en-suite shower room, and three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
