DESCRIPTION
Belwethers is a lovely detached Arts & Crafts style house built, we believe, around 1908, red brick with tile hung façade, attractive side dormer window under Kent peg tiled roof.

The property, now in need of some modernisation and updating, will create a superb village home, and comprises entrance porch with quarry tiled flooring, attractive leaded light windows and panelled glass door opening to the reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor with under-stairs storage cupboard and door leading through to the sitting room. The sitting room has a central exposed brick feature fireplace, archway to a study area, leaded light windows overlooking the front garden and patio doors opening onto the sun terrace to the rear.

The kitchen/breakfast room is in need of modernisation but has wall and base mounted units, recessed fireplace and off the kitchen is a separate WC with hand basin.

The first floor and landing also has the attractive leaded light windows overlooking the front of the property and leads to three good sized bedrooms with “Jack and Jill” family bathroom.
