Belmont House (or Lodge)
Although it often stated that this house formerly stood on the south corner of Portswood Road and St Denys Road, the Town Map of 1845-46 shows it to have been north east of this site at the west side of the junction of modern-day Portswood Road and Belmont Road. A sales notice of 1854 (see clipping below)describes it as a recently built Gothic villa, owned by William Elliston. It had been demolished by the 1880s.
In the 19th century Belmont Place was situated off the east side of Portswood Road, corresponding with the west stretch of what is now Westridge Road.
Formerly stood on the south side of Portswood Road, approximately on the site of Belmont Road.
