Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Scatheswood House is believed to have been built in the 1700's and was originally two cottages, forming part of the Ightham Mote estate. The cottages were converted into one dwelling over 50 years ago by the renowned local builders, Durlings.

It is a charming character cottage built of brick and ragstone with leaded light windows all under a clay Kent peg tile roof.

The property retains many original features, including the solid oak herringbone parquet flooring, timber beams, a baker's oven and open fireplaces.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors
with ample storage space. The kitchen has a range of units with a large pantry and useful utility room. There is a large dining room, with a door leading out to the paved terrace. Leading from this room is the delightful triple aspect drawing room which has an open fireplace and views out to the front garden. The study is a delightful room with a stunning vaulted and beamed ceiling, a brick faced fireplace and has access outside.

On the first floor, there is a spacious master bedroom which features a charming arched window. There are three further bedrooms and
two family bathrooms.
