Belmont Conservation Area was designated in January 2001. The houses in the area were designed by architect Reginald C. Fry and built between 1907 and 1909.
This development formed the basis of his entry to the Daily Mail Home of the Year competition in 1912.
Despite the relative consistency of plan-form and layout within the area, the houses themselves show great variety in design and architectural detailing with Old English, Arts and Crafts, Neo-Georgian and Queen Anne style influences all apparent, sometimes in the same property.
A good example of an Edwardian development displaying the prevailing fashion of house design and eclectic taste of the period.
