Explore the sandstone walled gardens
Upon entering Bellevue House, one steps back in time. This grand property has been given a new lease of life, having been completely and painstakingly restored and saved from ruin.
The gardens and outbuildings were neglected but over the years all has been transformed. Sandstone pillar gates, formal style gardens, winding paths that allow the garden to be explored. An eclectic blend of old and new creates a garden that cant be missed on visit to Richmond.
Servants Quaters have been fully restored and transformed into a gallery
Built 180 years ago with convict labour and hand made bricks, (with the authentic thumb print). The old outbuildings have now been lovingly restored. The once servants quarters, now showcasing local tallent in our gallery.
The original prison cells still stand, once housing local drunk and disorderlies or even ‘well behaved covicts for labour on the property’ as this property once housed the Police Magistrate.
