DESCRIPTION Bellevue was constructed in c.1805 as the Dower House for the nearby Waterside Estate. It has been substantially modernised over the years, while retaining much of its original character. The house is constructed from locally quarried whinstone and is under a slate roof. It is pebbledashed on three sides, with the front elevation displaying the original stone work.
The windows are all double glazed and the property is served by oil fired central heating. The property benefits from interlinked smoke alarms and is also fitted with a telephone linked alarm system. The property has accommodation split over two floors, with an attic room which could be utilised as additional living space if the correct building regulations were obtained.
ACCOMMODATION Ground floor: Front Porch, Staircase & Hall, Lounge, Sitting/Dinning room, Family Bathroom, Store Room, Pantry, Kitchen, Back Porch, Utility Room. Second Floor: Five bedrooms (one of which is
en-suite) or four bedrooms and an office. Attic Room: Storage Space.
OUTBUILDINGS The outbuildings are stone under slate and are split into two sections: a 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.
GARDEN The garden contains a number of mature trees, shrubberies and rose-beds. The drive-way up to the house is concrete and there is a large tarmac parking / turning area to the side of the property.
