Belmont Grange is a stunning property that offers the rare combination of an exceptional location, breathtaking views, landscaped gardens, luxury accommodation and first class interior design, which dates from about 1750 and is Grade II listed. The house is of gothic style with an asymmetrical design and stuccoed brick with rusticated quoins. The majority of windows have distinct arch casements with intersecting glazing bars. The house has been meticulously restored and modernised to provide first class family accommodation over two storeys. Of particular note is the beautiful reception hall/drawing room, which has some fascinating
decorative cornicing, and wonderful plasterwork and mouldings on the ceiling. There is a magnificent marble fireplace with a wood burning stove and a slate hearth. From the principal reception rooms there are wonderful views over the surrounding gardens and grounds. In the kitchen, there is a four oven Aga and granite work surfaces. Another particular feature is the arch doorways and windows, which are consistent throughout the property.
The windows and French doors are particularly large at Belmont Grange thus providing extremely light accommodation. There are excellent ceiling heights throughout the house and an open fire in the sitting room and dining room.
On the first floor there is a spacious Master bedroom suite which has delightful views over the gardens and grounds and a large en-suite
bathroom which has a double basin with marble surround and a large bath and shower. The bathroom also has its own private balcony
overlooking the garden.
The house has excellent storage space and an impressive wine cellar. Other particular features of Belmont Grange is the warmth from the under floor heating that permeates through the elegant oak flooring. All windows and doors have working shutters and upstairs, in addition to the bedrooms and bathrooms, there is a charming library area.
The Cottages / Flat / Studio
There are two cottages and a flat at Belmont Grange all of which are let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies providing useful income. Due to their location, they have very little impact on the main house, which retains excellent privacy and seclusion. Please speak to the agents for more details and rental amounts.
Cottage one has two bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms one of which is en-suite. The cottage has been well finished and has a large open plan kitchen/dining/reception room. There is a generous hallway and a large landing, which could also be used as office space.
Cottage two has two bedrooms and a bathroom along with a sitting room and a kitchen. There is a downstairs WC and a generous landing which could be used as an office.
Flat one known as The Loft was originally The Granary and provides a bedroom, a large open plan kitchen and living area, and bathroom/ storage room.
The Studio is below the Loft Flat and is currently utilised as a purpose built photographic studio with toilet, kitchenette, infrared heating and storage room.
There are also extensive outbuildings with planning for conversion to additional two bedroom cottage and substantial games room. The cottages have been well maintained and provide a useful additional income.
Belmont Grange is approached via a gravel driveway which sweeps through the parkland and is bordered by estate railing ending in a parking and turning area outside both the main house, the cottages, car port and large barn/ workshop. The areas are well divided and a large mature yew hedge helps this. Surrounding the southern and eastern side of the house is a substantial paved terrace, which looks over the formal gardens to the east of the house. This area is mostly laid to lawn and interspersed with a variety of wonderful coniferous and broadleaf trees including a superb Beech and monkeypuzzle tree. There is a network of paths and a fantastic flowerbed and shrub border which abuts a historic Crinkle Crankle wall which forms part of the walled garden. The parkland for Belmont Grange is mostly to the south and west of the house and would be ideal for equestrian use. Incidentally, the large barn/workshop would be ideal for American-style stabling. The walled garden is mainly laid to lawn and there is a recently completed summerhouse next to the pond, which provides wonderful seclusion and privacy. There are greenhouses which are south facing and a number of fruit trees. To add additional colour to the garden there is well established wisteria on the crinkle crankle wall and some wonderful roses. There are a number of smaller outbuildings closer to Belmont Grange surrounding the courtyard including potting sheds, flower rooms, the plant room and general garden.
