About this property

  • Belmont House is a magnificent detached Victorian villa constructed circa 1895, which, from its elevated position, looks south across the Firth of Clyde. Constructed over three floors, the property has a traditional feel and layout, with reception rooms accessed from a beautiful entrance hall. An original timber staircase extends to the upper levels with four bedrooms flowing from the first floor landing and with an additional attic level above.

    The reception rooms at ground floor level carry all the characteristics of the era with decorative cornicing , sash and case windows, an open fireplace in the drawing room and a wood burning stove in the morning room and dining room and wood panelling throughout the hallways and landings. The traditional expansive ceiling heights and orientation of the property also ensure that the rooms are bright and filled with natural light.

    The kitchen is formed of a central island with breakfasting bar and timber-topped cabinetry lining the outer walls. Appliances include a five burner Rangemaster hob and oven as well as an integrated fridge and freezer, along with a Belfast sink.

    The bedrooms on the first floor are all generous in size, again carrying the period features throughout with all of the four rooms containing recessed storage cupboards. The principal bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room whilst the others share a magnificent bathroom with further shower and separate WC.

    Accessed from the landing there is a staircase to the attic level which sees two rooms providing ample storage as well as scope for further development (subject to acquiring the necessary consents).

    Belmont not only has spectacular interiors but also benefits from an extensive garden. To the rear of the property there is an expanse of lawn enclosed on one side by a mature leylandii hedge and then opening to a gravel courtyard which provides ample space for a dining table and chairs. Throughout the garden there are various plantings of shrubs and perennial plants.

    Within the grounds there are two single garages with up and over doors as well as a substantial concrete hardstanding for further parking.
