One of Ireland’s Finest Palladian Villas
Bellamont Forest, Cootehill, Co. Cavan, Ireland
Set amid approximately one thousand acres of parkland and lakes, Bellamont Forest is one of Ireland’s finest 18th-century palladian villas. The house is four bays square, built over two storeys, with a basement. The internal floor area is approximately 1,032 square metres. The house is built of red brick with ashlar facings, and has a Doric limestone portico, with pediments over the windows. The main house has been reroofed and the chimneys rebuilt; the current owner has also rewired the house with CAT6 cabling. A new heating system has been installed on the ground floor with concealed radiators and the entire house replumbed.
There are both excellent formal reception rooms and beautiful entertaining rooms, coupled with a comfortable family atmosphere. It provides extensive bedroom accommodation for both family, guests and staff, and in addition boasts the former linen hall which would convert either to a house or commercial use, offices or perhaps conference facilities.
Further accommodation could be made in the Stewards house. The gardens have also been developed and greatly enhanced and act as further entertaining space. A particular feature is the walled garden.
