This Edwardian house has an impressive seven bedrooms and over an acre of land attached, so its new owners certainly won’t be short of space. 


Belmont sits on Kerrymount Avenue in Foxrock, just a short distance from the centre of the village. It has a large entrance hallway, with curved staircase leading to the first floor, and a period marble fireplace. The dining room sits to the right of this space, and has a dual aspect, making it bright throughout the day.

There are several further reception rooms, including drawing room, living room, and conservatory, giving a large family plenty of spaces to relax and entertain. The kitchen units are made from solid ash, with many bespoke details.

Granite worktops add depth to the room, while a large butcher’s block island provides plenty of prep space when cooking. The La Cornue Range has induction, gas and electric options, and there is an American-style fridge freezer.

The adjacent breakfast room is perfect for casual family meals, and it has French doors that lead out to the garden. On this level there is also a utility room and a further family room with oak flooring and built-in storage.

There are five bedrooms and one bathroom on the first floor, the main one with ensuite. The second floor has two further bedrooms and another bathroom, with the potential for an eighth bedroom in what is currently used as storage space.

Outside, the 1.14 acre site features mature trees and hedging, and is separated into several zones. Beside the house is a patio area with flower beds, looking out towards the swimming pool, which has plenty of lawn around it.

The tennis court is further from the house, separated by a row of trees, which provide natural shelter. There is also a pavilion for changing and storage. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this home.
