Agents Comments
The total renovation of this wonderful building is just now complete having taken five years to achieve.  Everything is new except the external walls and the original staircase, making the apartments outstanding value for money.  All kitchens and bathrooms are fully fitted including all appliances and washer dryers, all bedrooms have built in wardrobes.  The painstakingly detailed specification is evident throughout the whole building.   Each of these lovely apartments boasts uninterrupted panoramic sea, harbour, and hill views ranging from the Point of Ayre in the North, Cumbrian Mountains and Maughold Head in the East, Royal Ramsey and Snaefell in the South and Sky Hill in the West.  Belvedere has unrivalled vistas from every room.

Accommodation

Communal Areas

External
The beautiful detailed mouldings and restored railings and other features gracing the external walls and turret of Belvedere have been enhanced by a glorious choice of contrasting colours, all of which make this building a joy to behold.  Look up at the beautiful design on the turret roof.  Tiled external steps with hand rail lead to the timber paneled front entrance door with original etched glass side panels and ornamental fanlight above.  External architectural lighting and entry intercom system for maximum security and convenience.  Before you enter, turn around and see just one of the stunning views – you can even see Scotland and England on a clear day…sometimes they look so close they could be just a row boat ride away.

In the evening, this beautiful building deserves to be lit up to cast its spell around the town and be seen from the mountains and the sea, “and it is”.  There are LED strip lights along the top parapets, lights on the walls, and the flagpole is illuminated by another LED uplighter.

There is a communal satellite dish which serves the whole building, situated on a balcony for ease of access if necessary.

Vestibule
The front door leads into the vestibule, which still has its original Victorian tiled floor.  Here, and throughout the whole building is LED lighting, which reduces energy bills by up to 90%, thus ensuring massive savings for the apartment owners and for the management company.  There is also a chrome pendant in the centre.  The mail boxes are located in the vestibule, as is the door entry phone system.  Through the glazed vestibule door and ornate wooden frame with original stained glass panels either side, lies the impressive Entrance Hall.

Entrance Hall
On entering the hallway the visitor will be impressed with the natural light which floods in, and the high ceilings, the feeling of space.  Original features such as the deep, ornate coving which graces the ceilings, and the corbel busts, have been lovingly restored by local craftsmen.  This space enjoys a pleasing fusion of the traditional and contemporary.  An attractive central chandelier is a natural focal point, as is the original ornate newel post.  Bronze lights in the communal areas are triggered by motion sensors with built in time delays.  There is LED lighting at various points, presenting a pleasing atmosphere in the whole area.  The walls consist of a Dado and heavy molded deep skirting boards as demanded by the high ceilings.  The oak entrance doors to the Apartments are ½ hour fire rated and each door is surrounded by 5” (125mm)  wide oak architraves set on oak deep molded plinth blocks and molded top corner blocks.

In the communal area there are double radiators running off the communal gas boiler system to avoid any cold spots on the landings.  The boiler and the sprinkler control systems are accommodated in a communal cupboard under the stairway.  There are 2 x 5 amp sockets for table lamps in the entrance hall, bronze double sockets, sprinkler heads, smoke detectors, sounders, break glass points and emergency lighting in the communal area.

The glass passenger lift terminates at the third floor.  The lift makes the apartments accessible for those with mobility difficulties, and an easier life for anyone who would like to live in an elevated apartment to take advantage of the marvelous views but doesn’t want to walk up many stairs to reach it.  As the care is transparent and coupled with innovative lighting, it provides the passenger with a safe and reassuring environment to travel whilst at the same time allowing light to cascade throughout the building.  The patio door at the back of the entrance hall leads onto the rear access ramp which will provide a secondary access in and out of the building and also assist those who are perhaps less mobile than others.

Staircase and Landings
Here you will notice more original features – the ornate mahogany newel post at the bottom of the stairs, the sweeping grace of the curved mahogany handrail that snakes all the way up to the top floor, and the original spindles.

The impressive first flight of stairs has LED lighting under the Dado rail and three attractive wall lights.  There are pendants and emergency lights on all landings.  The lighting throughout the hall and landings is activated by passive infra-red sensors which have a built in time delay from one to the other.  Long mirrors on the landings reflect light and colours – the décor echoes the vibrant colours that are so appealing on the external moldings and facade

There is another communal cupboard on the first floor landing which accommodates landlord’s equipment.
