The striking Edwardian architecture of Bel Alp House creates a superb first impression and sense of arrival. The house is not listed and has striking proportions synonymous with its era, within a manageable layout that ensures it works perfectly as a family home and for entertaining.
Immediately noticeable is the abundance of natural light thanks to the double-glazed bay windows and high ceilings. The house combines the grandeur of its era with an incredibly welcoming and friendly atmosphere, which is felt immediately in the drawing room, which has an enormous bay window giving breath-taking southerly views over the surrounding countryside and a wonderful fireplace restored by the current owners.
The kitchen forms the heart of the home and cements Bel Alp's status as one of the finest family homes in the area. There is a large island, AGO and space for family dining. The proportions are superb, as is the design combining practicality with aesthetics. Double doors from the kitchen lead to the loggia, created to connect the kitchen with the dining room and open up the outstanding views. Also accessed from the loggia is the snug with fireplace, ideal for relaxing in the evening. There is an extensive basement and a lift to all floors.
The grand proportions and superb finish continue to the first floor, where there are six bedrooms accessed from the substantial landing. Every bedroom is generous in size and the rooms to the front of the house have spectacular far reaching views from the stunning bay windows. Each bedrooms has an en suite bath or shower room.
On the second floor are two further bedrooms that share a shower room and there is an integral one bedroom flat with its own kitchen, sitting room and bathroom. This is ideal for live in staff or additional guest accommodation.
Bel Alp House is positioned at the end of a private road surrounded by mature gardens and grounds extending to about 25 acres. Behind the house are two paddocks, and an extensive area of woodland. Immediately surrounding the house are areas of law and a terrace for outdoor dining from where the stunning views can be enjoyed. To the rear of the house is a former stable block containing a range of garden stores. Beyond this is a beautifully designed kitchen garden with raised beds protected by mature trees and hedges. A pathway leads from here to the tennis court, beyond which a further path leads through the attractive parkland into the lower woodland.
