The property originally comprised a pair of very grand Victorian town houses, situated to the south west of Wrexham town centre. The area was laid out during the mid-Nineteenth Century as a distinctive and spacious residential suburb of the town and the locality retains its special character, which was derived from the distinctive Arts and Craft movement. The property is now within the designated Fairy Road Conservation Area (itself designated in 1975). Later the property became the very well-known Belmont Hotel, which traded successfully until recently.
