1935 Sears Catalog: The Belfast

The Belfast, reminiscent of the beautiful Colonial architecture so popular among the home builders of the early United States, reflects that good cheer and gracious dignity which made their hospitality famous. There is economy in its simplicity and cozy comfort within its well built walls.

Each exterior detail has been studied for best results. The Colonial front entrance is a replica of the design which stands so invitingly on the entrance to the Perkins House, built at Costine, Maine in 1769.

The exterior walls up the eaves, are planned to be covered with clear bevel siding to receive three coats of Master-Mixed paint. The gables of are flush type siding. Dark brown or blue-green on the stationary slat shutters give a pleasing contrast to the light walls.

If you decide to place on narrow city lot, the side porch can be changed to the back with opening from the dining room.

The living room and dining room at the right of the plan are designed to give the appearance of one large room. Careful planning on the left side results in comfortable hall with semi-open stairs, service passage, grade entrance, lavatory and well arranged kitchen.

Upstairs you find three good corner bedrooms, four closets and bath. Not much chance for improvement.
