One of the Exe Estuary’s finest waterfront homes
Belvedere is a Grade II listed house of intriguing Georgian crenelated architecture standing in a majestic elevated position above the Exe Estuary with outstanding views of the water and surrounded by nearly 13 acres of gardens and grounds. Unusually for a waterfront property, the house is not overlooked from any direction thanks to the wonderful established gardens and mature woodland.
Numerous and significant improvements have been made to the house, and it now stands as an ideal family home with ample space for entertaining. The kitchen and breakfast room form the heart of the house, with a beautiful open archway between the two rooms. This leads to the drawing room, perhaps the most impressive reception room in the house with magnificent proportions. The vast windows and glass doors give exceptional views over the gardens.
The indoor pool area is of a grand scale, with glass doors down one side giving access to the patio and views over the gardens and estuary. There is a hot tub, two shower rooms, a sauna, tanning room and the plant room. The gym is particularly impressive and sits in a double height octagonal building.
At the entrance to the drive to Belvedere and behind the entrance gates sits the Grade II listed gate lodge. with an open plan kitchen / breakfast room and living room, a bedroom and bathroom.
Belvedere sits centrally within its immaculately kept grounds, which consist of landscaped formal gardens, paddock, woodland and an orchard.
