Description

The massive Doric columns, thirty-foot imported Belgium fountain and circular limestone and brick driveway create a fitting entrance to this Colonial Revival mansion. It was originally built as a Summer home in Anchorage by John Bayless in 1869 and then transformed and expanded to its' current grandeur in 1929 by the second owner, Charles Ross, with the assistance of architect, Frederick Morgan. The current owner purchased ''Bellewood'' 15 years ago and brought it into the 21st century, carefully restoring all the outstanding elements of this historic home while making the needed updates and changes desired by today's families. You'll find 14' ceilings, random width hardwood floors, extensive crown molding, 5 fireplaces and fine architectural detail throughout. The welcoming grand foyer opens to several gracious rooms, but the Gumwood paneled library with floor to ceiling bookcases and the expansive dining room with its' hand blocked Zuber wall mural steal the show. The kitchen and butler's pantry renovation has just recently been completed. Truly a chef's dream kitchen, you'll find a Viking oven with warming drawers, a 6-burner range and an 8-burner range, 2 Subzero refrigerators, Grill, Viking and Bosch dishwashers, and built-in Miele Espresso Maker and Pressure Cooker. The wet bar is fully equipped with Viking appliances as well, making entertaining here a delight, whether it's a catered party or you are chef du jour. The mechanicals have all been updated; plumbing, electric and most recently the steam heat replaced with a new HVAC system serving all three floors. A sound system and alarm system were also added. The primary bedroom on the second floor offers beautiful views of the lush landscape, ensuite bath and dressing area. Three additional guest bedrooms and two baths finish out the second floor. Four guest rooms and a bath on the third floor offer you plenty of room for Derby guests. This nearly 10 acre estate offers a quiet, private retreat and wonderful outdoor opportunities to get away from it all. There are brick and stone terraces that lead to the completely rebuilt guest cottage and outdoor covered kitchen. The guest cottage boasts a beautiful limestone fireplace, copper roof, kitchen with high-end appliances, bar, marble finished bathroom, outdoor shower and second floor bedroom. The outdoor kitchen and living areas are the ultimate entertaining spaces with a stone fireplace oven, master grill and large outdoor bar, you'll find you spend much of your free time either here or at the relaxing pool just a few steps away. A four-car garage and three stall stable round out this one of a kind estate. An extraordinary home and rare offering.
