Hurworth Cottage is a superb and wellappointed house with impressive proportions, privately set back from the road behind electric wrought iron gates. The house has recently undergone an extensive schedule of refurbishment and is presented to an excellent standard throughout, blending traditional character with superbly appointed modern living space. The accommodation is approached under an entrance portico through the front door to a fine staircase hall with a beautifully designed curved staircase leading to the first floor. The majority of the rooms on the ground floor are accessed from the inner reception hall including three generous reception rooms across the front elevation. The drawing room with open fireplace has French doors to the front of the property, and double doors accessing the dining room. The sitting room lies adjacent with a further open fireplace and door to the gardens. Each of these three reception rooms benefits from a mass of natural light being south facing and with extensive window seats beneath. There is a study on the eastern side of the house and the superb kitchen / breakfast room lies beyond, which is a beautifully designed room with large limestone floor tiles and a superb range of purpose built wall and floor units with granite worktops, built-in dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a pair of ovens as well as an induction hob with extraction fan over. There is a high vaulted
ceiling to this room, taking full advantage of the surrounding gardens. Double doors lead from the kitchen into the private rear gated courtyard.

This is a magnificent room with limestone flooring and five sets of French doors overlooking both the walled and side garden areas. There is a utility and cloakroom adjacent. The stairs rise from the main hallway to the first floor where the landing runs across the width of the house. The master bedroom is positioned in the south eastern corner of the house with a further bay window overlooking the gardens with a window seat beneath. The master bedroom benefits from a particularly spacious bathroom with dressing area containing two full walls of wardrobes. The guest bedroom suite contains an entrance area and private bathroom, with window overlooking the rear gardens. There are two further ensuite bedrooms at the front of the house as well as a family bathroom containing claw foot bath and a further bedroom.
