Available for multi-month periods between September and May, Belgarde exudes British colonial style in an unsurpassed location in Bellevue Estate, within minutes of the City of Hamilton and with deeded rights to private Grape Bay Beach. Its unique elevated position overlooks the South Shore, Hamilton Harbour and the Great Sound looking west to Dockyard and the America's cup race basin. Because it offers proximity to Hamilton combined with access to an exceptional beach and amenities, it is equally well suited for an executive/corporate tenant, an active family or even as a holiday home. The three-acre grounds are beautifully landscaped with an abundance of lush plantings and cascading flowers. A recent world-class renovation has brought new light, ease and livability to this elegant family home of primarily single-floor design. Fully equipped and furnished with casual sophistication, Belgarde provides generous and flexible living space, indoors and out.The south verandah overlooking the infinity pool, jacuzzi and the Atlantic provides a lovely haven for relaxation, while the 80+ ft wrap-around verandah on the north side overlooks Hamilton Harbour, stunning sunsets -- and is ideal for dining and entertaining on the croquet lawn. A large center-hall library and reception hall, the living room with French doors, and the substantial dining room all enjoy beautiful hardwood floors, 11' ceilings, fireplaces and many period details. The kitchen and its service pantries, while fully renovated, also retain their period charm while the sun room is a relaxing place to sit and read or enjoy a meal with easy access to the south verandah and pool area. There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms in the main house ( one bedroom is accessed separately off a verandah) plus a spacious, recently renovated two bedroom/one bathroom guest apartment on the upper level.
