DESCRIPTION
Allathumpach is a bespoke architecturally designed home standing proudly on a quiet and very private
elevated site in the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside. Completed in 2001, the home was cleverly
designed to ensure it's sympathetic to the stunning surroundings yet maximising on space, efficiency and
natural light with well-placed and shaped windows capturing the incredible views. A true wow factor of the
home is the beautiful central octagonal tower which continues from the ground floor to the top floor creating
a truly unique feature of the home. Allathumpach has been completed to the highest of standards with high
quality finishes evident throughout including handmade oak wood staircase and offers exceptionally spacious
and adaptable family accommodation throughout. The property stands in around 10.55 acres of grounds
leading down to the Deskry River and the current owners have created a truly beautiful haven for the
owners to enjoy along with the wide array of wildlife and birds that visit Allathumpach.

ACCOMMODATION
The main entrance hall is a bright open space with a deep storage cupboard and access to the cloak room
fitted with a white suite and connections are in place to create a shower room if ever required. From this
area stairs lead you up to the stunning tower room with 12 carefully placed and sized windows capturing
the views. This room is thought perfect as a creative studio area, bedroom or relaxation room. Returning
down to the upper landing which is given natural light by two sky light windows and, due to the size, is also
used as a study/office area. Stairs from this area also lead you down to the main living space on the ground
level. Firstly you have a superb studio room, which could also be an incredible bedroom, with five separate
windows and a large amount of versatile space. A good cupboard provides storage and is shelved. The master
bedroom is a spacious room, again with large windows including French doors with Juliet balcony, and leads
to an en-suite bathroom with overhead Mira shower. Finally, on this level there is a further double bedroom
enjoying the open countryside views. Continuing down the handmade bespoke oak stair case, you will find yourself in the main sitting/dining
room with both front facing windows and a sky light.
This in turn leads you to the octagonal tower snug room
with cosy wood burning stove. The large family dining
kitchen has been recently refurbished with quality units
and work tops creating plenty working and storage
space including a large walk in larder cupboard. There
is space for a family dining table and views to the front
can be enjoyed from all 3 windows. Accessed from the
kitchen is the utility room/boot room which has a door
to the garden and excellent storage units and sink.
Also to this side of the house is a versatile room which
could be a further bedroom or home office with built
in storage.
On the west side of the lower level there is a delightful
sun room with four double floor to ceiling windows
capturing the incredible views and French doors
opening onto the decked patio. There are two further
double bedrooms, well-proportioned and presented
and finally completing the accommodation is the family
bathroom with large bath and separate shower cubicle.

OUTBUILDINGS
Located to the east side of the house is the substantial
detached out building. The out building accommodates
various uses and spans two floors with double doors
to two sides. There is a large work shop area, storage
area and garage space with inspection car pit.

dining. With an array of established trees, planted by the current owner, the garden is sheltered, private and proves to be a beautiful haven for wildlife and birds.
