Le Belvedere' is unique to the Valley and was originally built over 300 years ago. Since that time as been a government building, local council house, school, and private residence. The 300 year old wooden staircase is heritage listed for its unique construction as it is entirely free standing without vertical support beams. The magnificent staircase is still in its original state and with minor restoration work, stands as strong as at the time it was built. The house is built from stone and chestnut wood and is finished in walnut. It features built-in walnut cupboards and doors mostly in their original state that have seen over 300 years with very little restoration work needed. The floors in the master bedroom are still in their original state and are made of chestnut parquetry.
