Belmont House is an 1830’s coach house in Richmond, Tasmania. The town was an important military staging post and convict station on the road between Hobart and Port Arthur. As with most of the town, this house was built by convict labour, constructed from locally quarried sandstone.
The coach house is now a private residence for the Pooley family and home to Pooley Wines. Vineyards surround the buildings, with some vines covered in netting to protect the fruit from birds and possums.
The old stables house the “Cellar Door” open to the public for wine tastings and available for private functions. It is a lovely location to enjoy a glass of wine, a cheeseboard or wood fired pizza.
There are an array of doors around the back of the main house and in the stables block, ideal for Norm’s Thursday Doors challenge
