A waterside home on the banks of the River Earn.
Riverbank Cottage was originally a single storey property built in the 1980s. In 2009 a substantial two storey extension was added, to a design by the popular local firm Denholm Partnership Architects. The property has been designed to make the very best of its waterside location and south facing picture windows capture the view and fill the house with light.
The reception hall at Riverbank Cottage provides access to the accommodation that made up the original footprint of the house and includes the kitchen, which has a small dining area, a gas fired Rayburn, a pantry and a door to the garden. Next to it is the dining room and then the family room; all have large windows overlooking the river. On the north side of the house there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. One of the bedrooms has an en suite shower room, one is currently used as a study and the largest has a useful wall of built in cupboards. Beyond the family room is the newer part of the house where there is a large bright sitting room with log burning stove, French windows to the garden and a beautifully framed view of the river. There is also an office, a WC and utility room. Upstairs is the principal bedroom suite which is a highlight of the house. It has French doors to a balcony which overlooks the water towards the slopes of Ben Vorlich. The main bedroom has the luxury of two dressing rooms as well as a large bathroom. The house is well served with walk in storage cupboards.
The garden at Riverbank Cottage amounts to almost half an acre. A short driveway leads to a parking area between the house and the garage. On the south side of the house is a paved terrace and a pretty landscaped garden which has been planted with a large variety of plants and bulbs that provide colour throughout the year. The boundary of the property is 20 feet from the river's edge. The garden is a haven for wildlife.
