    About this property

    • Belmont has been the subject of a meticulous and thorough refurbishment campaign that has created a very special family home. Improvements include a stunning and bespoke kitchen/breakfast room and adjoining utility room, the creation of a beautiful principal air conditioned bedroom suite with bespoke dressing room and recently refitted shower room, refurbished family bathroom and ground floor shower room.

      The whole property is presented in immaculate order throughout with smart white oak-style tiled (underfloor heated) flooring to the majority of the ground floor and plantation blinds to the majority of windows. There is an integrated Sonos sound system throughout the property both internally and outside. The central heating, underfloor and hot water system are all controlled via the nest app. The home security camera system is fully integrated and accessible remotely.

      The accommodation comprises a porch; reception hall with stairs up; double doors leading into the large drawing room, perfect for entertaining, with glazed doors to the rear terrace and a “state of the art” gas fire taking centre stage.
      Two further reception rooms include a dining room and a sitting room with sliding glass door to the garden. The impressive kitchen/ breakfast room has a bank of four integrated Bosch ovens including a steaming oven and microwave, full height fridge and separate freezer, inductions Siemens hob with extractor above, two integrated dishwashers, granite work surfaces and a breakfast bar. The utility room is fitted to match with walk-in storage cupboard, granite work surfaces and space for two washing machines and a tumble dryer. A shower room completes the ground floor and is perfectly placed for the rear garden and the swimming pool.

      Upstairs is equally impressive with an attractive main bedroom with free standing copper bath, a bespoke dressing room and a shower room. Three more double bedrooms are located on this floor, two with walk in under eaves cupboards and a well equipped family bathroom with separate shower.

      Belmont is set well back from the road with lawned gardens and an extensive driveway providing off road parking for numerous cars. The rear gardens have been cleverly landscaped with entertaining in mind. There is an extensive decked area with heated swimming pool, granite bar with central pizza oven, further paved terrace ideal for “al fresco” dining, and raised planters with an assortment of herbs and two olive trees. The remainder of the garden is lawned with a small orchard with a variety of cherry, apple, pear and quince trees, the whole backing onto farmland. A garden shed houses the pool equipment and there is a utility area to one side where the oil tank is situated.
