Georgian gem is a renowned ‘Building of England’

    Belmont House

    This spectacular seven-bedroom property lies in a quiet location on the northern outskirts of East Hoathly and enjoys an elevated position with some splendid far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside towards the South Downs.

    Belmont House is a magnificent Georgian home with later additions. Its beauty is so astounding that it is mentioned in art historian Nikolaus Pevsner’s series of architectural guides The Buildings of England.

    The property is exquisitely presented and has a wonderful sense of light and space It also retains many features characteristic of the period, including some fine fireplaces.

    Expertly refurbished by John Minshaw Designs, the interior of the house includes two murals by the well-known endangered bird artist Emma Faull, as well as a kitchen with a luxurious range of bespoke oak units with granite worktops, two fridge/freezers, and a six-oven Aga. Another feature is the electrified picture rails, while the kitchen, breakfast room, bathrooms and conservatory, enjoy the benefit of underfloor heating.

    There is also satellite TV and a music system on the ground floor.

    The reception rooms are ideally arranged for formal entertaining, and are complemented over the first and second floors by a particularly spacious principal bedroom suite, which includes a balcony, two further suites, four additional bedrooms and another bathroom.

    Incorporated within the house, and approached via a secondary staircase, is a one-bedroom apartment, which provides ideal accommodation for staff.

    Attached to the southern side of the main house, and approached from either the courtyard or the walled garden, The Coach House provides excellent secondary accommodation for the extended family.

    Additionally, approached from a spur of the main entrance drive, the single storey Gardener’s Cottage provides well arranged two-bedroom accommodation with its own area of parking.
