Belmont Mansion is a stunning Grade II listed detached town house, with parts dating back to 1641. Major renovations were carried out in the late 19th century, and the self-contained cottage was added to the house in the 1900’s. The resultant home now boasts 8/9 bedrooms, 6 receptions, 3 bathrooms, 2 cellar rooms, and a veritable wealth of features which provide that essential combination of period character with 21st century living. The Cottage adds a further 2 bedrooms, 2 receptions, bathroom & kitchen. A private electronically gated drive, double garage, original coach house and delightful gardens complete this awesome property, viewing of which will simply be a great experience.

Amongst the many delights to be found inside Belmont Mansion are mosaic tiled floors, Inglenook and cast iron fireplaces, Georgian wood paneling, twin Belfast sinks, seats & wine bins in the cellars, working window shutters, vaulted ceilings, etc.

The formal gardens, patio, kitchen garden and courtyard combine to provide areas in which to relax, entertain and play, and their orientation means you can always find some sunshine - assuming it is out! The double garage with electric up & over doors and loft storage is complemented by the original Coach House, now providing further workshop & storage space, with power and light supplied. The large Summerhouse is mounted on a turntable, again ensuring a sunny outlook at any time of day. Private access to the property is via remote controlled electric gates leading onto Oundle Road.

This is one of those homes that genuinely needs to be experienced both internally and externally in order to fully appreciate all it has to offer, and viewing will definitely be a pleasure.
