'Belmont' is a beautiful detached home that occupies a generous plot extending to around 0.53 acres in an extremely popular pocket of Bowdon. The property has been remodelled and refurbished by the current owners who have created a home that provides a sleek and stylish finish whilst still retaining many of the striking original features including deep skirting boards, ceiling cornicings, tiled floorings and Victorian fireplaces. The spacious and versatile accommodation extends to almost 5800 sq ft and is ideal for those with younger families and includes: three reception rooms, a stunning kitchen (opening onto a terrace), a study, six double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms. There are also full basements which have been converted to create a media room, library and gymnasium, as well as providing invaluable storage space. This is, in our opinion, one of the finest homes currently available in the Bowdon area.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE OUTSIDE
The property occupies a generous plot that extends to just over half an acre. A sweeping driveway accessed via secure electric gates provides parking and turning space for a number of vehicles. The driveway is enclosed by a low level brick wall, above which are raised borders that are stocked with an abundance of flowers and shrubs. Mature hedging separates the driveway from the main body of the garden with a small gate giving access between the two. Secure double gates give access to an additional York stone flagged driveway at the side of the property, beyond which there is an outside store room and courtesy gate to the rear garden. Three steps lead to the front door of the house. To the rear of the property there are extensive lawns that extend to both sides and rear of the house. The gardens are completely enclosed, so are ideal for those with younger families and there is also a sunken patio. A number of mature trees on the three boundaries form a pleasing backdrop to the gardens and ensure a high level of privacy. Double doors from the dining kitchen give access to a wrought iron terrace, which is perfect for outside entertaining.
