Belle House History

Beautiful Tumut Accommodation, With An Impressive History – Try It, You’ll Love It. Belle House is a late 1950’s Art Deco Mansion and Tumuts most renowned and admired Art Deco landmarks. Lovingly renovated to it’s former glory and still retains original features of high ceilings, mantle piece, intricate and ornate architectural detailing, large rooms and so much more.

Belle House was built in harmony with the global pursuit of architectural finesse of the Art Deco Era. It was originally built by hand by Mr Fuller who was a council engineer. Who was very much respected and had a street named after him.

Engineer Mr Fuller commissioned to build one of his finest works, the magnificent jewel in the crown Belle House. After Mr Fuller moved on, the next distinguished residence were Dulcie and Rolf Wilkinson of the famous Blowering Valley, they were farming gentry and had to move from the Blowering valley because the government acquired their farms to build the Snowy Mountains Scheme and the dam is called the Blowering Dam. Forced to leave their property thy had to choose a residence fitting of their status. As a coincidence Belle House ( Buena Vista ) was exactly what Dulcie and Rolf needed. They both lived their for the rest of their lives. We were very good friends with them from the time we moved to Tumut in 1995 to the date we purchased the property in 2002, and helped them later in their lives. Dulcie was an absolute fashionista, she was the epitome of absolute class, grace and also had an amazing sparkle in her eye and a cheekiness that exudes the absolute zest in a gorgeous female that just loved life to its fullest, I love that amazing lady. she was the head buyer of the famous Tumut Co Op which she stocked with the finest clothing and accessories from all over the world, she mainly did the buying from Melbourne and Sydney.
