Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ground Floor 

Period style wood and stained glass doors open into: 

Entrance Lobby

Further wood panel door with a vibrant stained-glass top and accompanying side panels open into:

Reception Hall which in turn peels off to both the left and right wings of the main accommodation.

To the right, doors lead to:

Kitchen/Living Area 10.35 (into bay) x 4.26

Spectacular entertaining space remodelled by our vendors as previously two separate rooms now opened up to produce a modern and contemporary kitchen/diner that compliments the architectural heritage of the property.

Kitchen area is created from an extensive range of wall and base units with woodblock work surfaces with an inset Belfast style sink and most useful addition of a central island/breakfast bar.  The focus of the kitchen is perhaps the impressive range cooker. With immaculately tiled splashbacks and beautifully tiled floor the kitchen is a credit to our vendors desire to sympathetically modernise Belvedere.  A double glazed window overlooks the side entrance vestibule and the floor tiled with a striking shade of marble.

The kitchen then opens into:

Dining area
Bay window overlooks the rear garden and a door to the side opens onto the terrace with a further double glazed window to the side aspect.  The focal point of the diner is the hearth and mantle housing a wood burner and a beautiful fitted period style dresser unit.  Period styling continues with the radiator, coving and picture rail and the floor has been stripped and sanded.

From the kitchen a door leads into the passageway with ancillary accommodation including:

Boiler Room – Double glazed window front aspect

Utility Room - Double glazed window front aspect, space and plumbing for washing machine etc.

WC - Double glazed window front aspect, suite comprises of close coupled WC and wash hand basin.

Side Vestibule – Doors to both the front and rear aspect and double glazed windows to side aspect

Returning to Entrance Hall

Bedroom Four 3.96 x 3.40

Double glazed window to the rear aspect, feature focal fireplace


Currently used as a study area with stairs rising to the first floor.

To the left, doors lead to:

Sitting Room 5.51 x 4.87 (measured into bay)

Accessed via French doors from the hallway, bay window overlooking the rear garden, French doors open onto the terrace.  Feature focal fireplace with wood burner, period style radiator, stripped floors once again, cornicing and picture rail.

Bedroom Two 5.85 x 4.27 (measured into bay)

Double glazed bay window to rear aspect overlooking the gardens and period style feature focal fireplace, stripped wooden flooring and door opens on terrace creating the symmetry with the kitchen diner.

Family Bathroom 3.81 x 3.09

Most generously sized family bathroom once again modernised by our vendor but in keeping with the period.  Beautifully remodelled and comprises of a free standing ball and claw style bath, walk in shower, marble basin set on top of a vanity unit and a high level WC creating an authentic period look.  There is a double glazed window to the side aspect, period style radiator and the most beautiful tiling in marble to the floor.

Agents note: Historically this bathroom served as an En-suite to bedroom two and whilst the doorway has now been enclosed this could of course be reinstated, if so desired.

Bedroom Three 4.58 x 3.63

A lovely dual aspect room with double glazed window to the front and side.  This bedroom also benefits from a period style wash hand basin, two radiators and panelled ceiling.


Suite comprises close couple WC and wash hand basin with a double glazed window to the front aspect.

Family Bathroom Two

In our opinion one of the most striking and unusual features of this home, given it retains a virtually intact art deco bathroom, comprising of bath and wash hand basin correct to the period and the most resplendent tiling with lemon and green glaze.  Most unusual, this agent has not seen something as intact or authentic for a number of years.

Study Area

Double glazed window to the front aspect and stairs rising to the first floor.

First Floor

Master Bedroom Suite 12.02 x 5.44

Simply put, this needs to be seen to appreciate how outstanding this room presents.  The dimensions alone provide for a dramatic space which incorporating the En-suite runs across the whole of the ground floor demise.  After the size we then need to appreciate the French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens and providing commanding views over the surrounding countryside.  Spectacular room with almost endless eaves storage.    Door leads to:


The En-suite comprises of sauna, shower and WC making for a truly indulgent master suite. 


Approaching approximately 1 acre in size Belvedere is, given its age, blessed with well-established grounds, lawn area, an abundance of flowers, shrubs and trees too numerous to name.

So much to see, the highlight of which are:

Pool and patio area. Backing onto a field, Belvedere has a lovely pool and poolside patio with the further benefit of a substantial outbuilding, serving the space and also providing a home for the solar panels heating the pool.

Two central stone sets of steps rise from the pool area to arrive at the main terrace running across the rear aspect of the property.  What is particularly pleasant about the arrangement are the doors leading out onto the terrace from the kitchen/diner, sitting room and bedroom.

The rear garden is lush and verdant and would benefit from a “wander” through to appreciate their beauty.

To the front of the property there is ample off street parking and garaging and greenhouse.

Bearing in mind Belvedere occupies an elevated position with commanding rural views from the property and rear gardens.

To the side elevation is a brick built outhouse split into 4 rooms each with its own door and window, which again, subject to obtaining any necessary consents could provide additional development opportunity for repurposing.

As mentioned in the description beyond, the garaging is an area of hardstanding with drainage and power which used to house a mobile home referred to as Bluebell Cottage which could, if so desired and subject to planning, offer some development opportunity.  Prospective buyers would be encouraged to make their own enquiries.
