Spacious contemporary house set in wonderful landscaped gardens with land and river frontage on the Blackadder Water
A modern house built to a traditional design in 2003, Allanbank House has a classic, elegant feel yet offers all the benefits of contemporary living. A sense of connection and flow to the ground floor reception rooms creates a wonderfully versatile space. The spacious and bright reception rooms include a drawing room with dual aspect windows, fireplace and glass doors opening up to the dining room. This in turn is easily opened into the double height sitting room with log burner and tall windows overlooking the landscaped gardens. The spacious sitting room connects to both the entrance hall and kitchen and a galleried first floor landing looks down from above. The kitchen with dining space features a large island and integrated appliances within the base and wall units. A large utility room is accessed from the kitchen, located to the side door leading out to the garden. A study connects the entrance hall to the kitchen, whilst the garden room which enjoys spectacular panoramic views over the garden, is also accessed from the kitchen.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead up to the galleried landing and provide access to the well-proportioned master bedroom with two walk-in wardrobes (one with hatch access to the floored attic above), and a large en suite bathroom with sunken bath and double walk in shower. This bathroom has electric under floor heating. On the other side of the landing is a family bathroom and three further bedrooms, two which share a Jack and Jill shower room.
A mature hedge provides a private boundary from the roadside, with gravel driveway sweeping down to the front of the house and ample parking space. The garage provides space for two cars, with storage and a generator shed to the side. There is a further garden machinery shed. Landscaped flower beds border the property to the rear. Amongst the gardens and grounds are landscaped woodlands, seated areas and a summer house overlooking a croquet lawn.
Riverside paddocks stretch out below the garden to the Blackadder Water on which the owners of Allanbank House have salmon and trout fishing rights. These are lush meadows with an abundance of wildlife and where there is a pond is fed from the old mill lade.
