Steeped in history, bringing together perfectly the old and the new with unimaginable attention to detail throughout the build, words could never do justice to this stunning property.

This unique house was designed by local architect Thomas Furnival Hughes and the design was commended by the Design Commission for Wales.

Downing Walled Garden was formally the kitchen gardens of the now demolished Downing Hall and the birthplace of Thomas Pennant. The walls are part of curtilage buildings and the gardens are featured in Clwyd Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest. Downing is an area of outstanding natural outstanding beauty and a conservation area.

This property could easily be suitable for two families wanting to live together whilst retaining their own space due to the potential of turning the original cottage into a self contained Annexe.

The care and attention that the current owners have put into this home is admirable and includes Oak flooring and oak internal doors throughout, Rehau underfloor heating throughout, Rehau rainwater harvester, Cat 5 cabling throughout and Vent axia ventilation system. All of this, along with CCTV, Burglar Alarm and being part of the Neighbourhood watch Scheme makes this the perfect place to live.
