For Sale by Private Treaty
An imposing period property with gate lodge on 15 acres of parkland
In 1837, Lewis' s Topography records Belmont as the seat of J Roe, but by 1840 John Hely Owen, coroner and land agent was in residence. Jeremy Williams suggests that in the 1850s Hely employed John Mulvany, James Perry' s favourite architect, to enlarge Belmont and add the loggia and single-story front.
In the early 1900s Alexander Francis Boyle who was agent for Lord Ashbrook at Castle Durrow bought Belmont. Boyle' s antecedents came from the Castlecomer area. In the 20th century, Belmont had several owners. The Hodgins were followed by the O' Connell' s who owned The Sportsman' s Inn and produced such distinguished chefs as Darina Allen and Rory O' Connell.
The current owners have lived in Belmont House for the 32 years.
