--- LOT DESCRIPTION --
Based off the fictional Downton Abbey Estate, the house showcases of the prestige of the British Aristocracy. Downton is undoubtedly one of the most famous homes in England.
Downton Abbey is an 8 bedroom and 8 bathroom mansion for the insanely wealthy sim-aristocrat. The abbey is based off the real life Highclere Castle which serves as the location for the world famous TV series, Downton Abbey.
The gothic revival style mansion dominates the surrounding landscape with its five majestic towers. The centerpiece of the mansion is the three-story saloon which functions as one of the mansion's several living areas. The massive library has a large collection of books, a feminine parlor features pastel color scheme and boasts an antique grand piano, and the elegant dining room is an appropriate venue for any event.
The servant's quarters are linked to the main house by a large hallway and features the large kitchen and servant's dining room. A grand staircase leads to the upper story which features arched hallways that overlook the saloon's vaulted ceiling, the master bedroom and dressing room, the three bedrooms of the Crawley sisters, one guest bedroom, and an additional two bedrooms for the servants.
