THE PROPERTY

Belmont House is a substantial detached property which occupies a large, level plot in a tucked away position close to Bridport town centre. The property is believed to date back to 1710, when it was built as accommodation for the Monks of Abbotsbury, with later additions and is justifiably Grade II Listed with a host of fascinating character features. Under the current ownership, the property has undergone a significant programme of improvements inside and out which have greatly enhanced the extensive accommodation and grounds, creating a charming, comfortable and stylish home suitable for a variety of lifestyles. Owing to its highly flexible layout, the property is ideal for use as a home for families of all shapes and sizes with scope to create a self-contained ground floor annexe if required.

Internally, the well proportioned accommodation is arranged over three floors and has a sociable, family-orientated emphasis with a healthy balance between living, sleeping and domestic accommodation which ensures comfort and convenience throughout. On the ground floor there are two reception rooms, the well appointed kitchen, a shower room, laundry room, several storage areas and the integral garage/workshop. Three further, interconnecting reception rooms can be found on the first floor along with a utility room/ancillary kitchen, cloakroom, study/cinema room and additional storage. The top floor is arranged as four sizeable double bedrooms and the family bathroom, with the principal bedroom suite featuring an ante room, ensuite bath-and shower room and two walk-in wardrobes alongside a large bedroom area.

It is clear upon entering the house that great care has been taken to preserve the character features, which included leaded windows, panelled internal doors and high ceilings throughout much of the accommodation, whilst the new attributes added during the renovation process have been carefully selected with quality, functionality and style as a priority. As a result, the property exhibits many fantastic features including a bespoke fitted kitchen with polished stone worktops, central island, two larders, Rangemaster electric cooker range and integrated fridge/freezer; a triple-faced, rotating wood burning stove between the three interconnecting reception rooms on the first floor; and a superb entertaining area in the garden, complete with pizza oven, outdoor sink/food prep area and summerhouses, to name but a few.

OUTSIDE

The grounds at Belmont House are as impressive as the house itself, amounting to more than half an acre and cleverly landscaped to provide excellent growing, entertaining and seating areas alongside extensive parking. Two long, gated driveways give access to the property from the public road and lead to a block paved parking area from which both a double car port and the double doors to the integral garage can be reached. The attractive gardens are primarily level and areas include a sunken terrace adjoining the entrance door to the ground floor with a bar, hot tub area and plenty of space for al fresco dining; a productive, enclosed vegetable garden and the entertaining terrace which is appointed with excellent facilities for garden parties and family enjoyment alike.

SITUATION

The property is located in an easily accessible yet tucked-away position within very easy reach of Bridport town centre and just one mile from West Bay and the beautiful World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast. Bridport is a thriving and historic market town and holiday area. Extensive street markets are held twice weekly and the town has an excellent range of shopping facilities, primary and secondary schools, recreational and social amenities and a popular leisure centre with a swimming pool. A particular feature of Bridport town is the large number of independent and specialist shops which provide a unique atmosphere.
