|Belmont Country Club|
The history of Belmont is very rich and is a symbol of steady tradition. The Belmont estate was built in 1799. The owner, Ludwell Lee was the son of Richard Henry Lee- one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The estate caught attention due to its unique architecture (a five-part federal mansion) and most distinguished guests including James Madison who called the estate "home". Belmont is recorded in the National Register of Historic Places (80004198), and is preserved by the National Park Service. In 1995, Toll Brothers, Inc. bought the house and grounds from IBM and constructed a gated golf community, Belmont Country Club, using the Lee mansion as the clubhouse.
Today, Belmont Country club provides a wide array of fine amenities and services for residents. Including the following:
Adult Pool and Tennis Facility:
In addition, the country club holds many annual events, including the Fairfax Hunt. Held every fall and spring, the Fairfax Hunt has been a tradition for over 200 years. With such opulent history and pleasant atmosphere, Belmont is truly in a class of its own.
