Property specialists Stonesmith are thrilled to be marketing the freehold sale of Belmont House – an attractive period, end of terrace residence, with origins that reputably date back around 200 years. Constructed from the famous Beer Stone under a pitched slate roof and having been the subject of considerable investment and improvement by our client during 17 years of ownership, Belmont House is presented to an extremely high standard and is a ready to trade “turn-key” opportunity. This extremely flexible and versatile property briefly comprises:- 5 en-suite double bedrooms, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. Externally, to the front of the property is a small terrace providing a seating area and to the rear is an enclosed gravelled garden with a timber beach hut.
The sale of Belmont House represents an opportunity to purchase an extremely well maintained and versatile property within a highly sought after and desirable East Devon coastal village, coupled with a lucrative business opportunity. It also offers all the flexibility of a lifestyle business and investment opportunity, either as a bed and breakfast or alternatively as it is currently trading as a holiday let.
Belmont House is situated in the heart of Beer, just off Fore Street, the main thoroughfare of the village, and is opposite the main village centre car park. The property also lies a short walk from the beach with the South West Coastal Footpath and a number of popular tourist attractions also within easy walking distance. Beer is one of East Devon’s most favoured villages and a rare example of an unspoilt Devon fishing village, nestling on the East Devon Jurassic Coastline which is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and has been awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO. Beer is also easily accessible to the regional capital, Exeter (25 miles) with its motorway access, international airport and mainline railway station.
The sale of Belmont House is reluctantly offered for sale, due to retirement. Potential exists to re-establish Belmont House as a thriving bed and breakfast business and there is also the opportunity to continue letting Belmont House on a room only/ holiday let basis. The property boasts its own websites, including www.belmonthousebedandbreakfast.com which continue to generate significant enquiries and online bookings. Our client does not envisage any issues with re-establishing the lucrative bed and breakfast trade, especially by making use of the various online accommodation booking websites, as there are only 5 B&Bs in Beer and there is a considerable demand for guest accommodation in the village.
The freehold property is on the market for offers over £450,000. Full property details can be found on our website: www.stonesmith.co.uk and viewings arranged by calling 01392 201262.
