The Hurdles is set on the Borough in Downton, a fantastic and sought after location within this ever popular village. Originally two cottages, the property has been cleverly and very sympathetically renovated to create an interior that can only be described as a complete and wonderful surprise.
Unassuming from the outside, the cottages have been joined and transformed to a substantial period home which retains all of the period character and charm that one would hope to find.
Beautifully presented in soft neutral tones to complement the mellow beams, and finished to a very high standard with luxury bathroom fittings, hi-spec flooring and stylishly fitted kitchen, the house has a light and elegant feel.
From the pretty entrance courtyard, the front opens to the Hallway which leads you back into the cottage and in to an inviting Snug. Fitted with a multi-fuel stove, this charming room is the perfect spot to relax in the colder months ahead
The Sitting/Dining Room is a generous reception space with original panelling and beams, that lends itself to entertaining, with more than enough room to accommodate a large table and chairs.
Almost running the width of the property, at the back of the cottage, is the Kitchen/Breakfast Room. With French doors opening directly to the garden, the room is a light and bright sociable hub, with room to sit and dine. Fitted with a comprehensive range of units under solid oak worksurfaces, the kitchen is equipped with range cooker with extractor over and concealed dishwasher/ fridge.
An original walk-in larder and separate cupboard add yet more storage and the Utility/Boot Room retains the original butlers sink and provides further appliance space. There is a ground floor cloakroom and large original storage cupboards.
In testament to the original layout there are two staircases rising to the first floor where there are four bedrooms, three of them double and the other a large single. There is a luxuriously fitted family bathroom and well planned separate shower room.
