About this property

  • Bellevue is a large Georgian country house with beautiful open aspects over its surrounding grounds and picturesque countryside beyond. Bellevue was constructed in circa 1805 as the dower house for the nearby Waterside Estate and has been substantially modernised by the current owners.

    The accommodation begins with an entrance vestibule and welcoming hallway. Leading off is a formal dining room and a stylish living room, both with feature fireplaces and window aspects overlooking the gardens. The spacious breakfasting kitchen can be accessed via a hatch from the dining room and benefits from a range of high and low level mounted cabinetry with range cooker. The kitchen is positioned towards the back of the house with easy access to the utility room, downstairs bathroom and rear porch.

    The first floor accommodation comprises four well-proportioned double bedrooms including a generously sized principal bedroom suite with en suite shower room. A main bathroom with modern bath and shower completes this level.

    From here there is access to a large attic level which has been mainly floored and lined, offering the opportunity for additional accommodation.
    N.B. No planning permission has yet been obtained for the use of this space.

    There are a range of additional outbuildings including double garage and a storage area. With the correct permissions, the outbuildings could be converted into additional accommodation, or alternatively, could provide stabling for horses.

    The immediate grounds surrounding the property are mature, mainly lawned and enjoy beautiful open aspects over surrounding farmland where there is a total of 15.76 acres included with the sale.
