Allathumpach is a beautifully designed property tucked away with a quiet & private location in the desirable Donside area of the Cairngorms National Park. Originally completed in 2001, Allathumpach is a hidden haven with outstanding views across the Deskry River and down the valley offering a very rare & special opportunity. The home was cleverly designed to ensure it’s sympathetic to the stunning surroundings and offers over 300sqm of practical family living space with good efficiency including a biomass heating system & solar panels, whilst the natural light is maximised with perfectly placed windows capturing the incredible views & light.
Running through the centre of the property is the octagonal tower, continuing from the ground floor to the top floor creating a truly unique feature including a studio on the top floor with ceiling sky light windows. The property stands in around 11.78 acres of ground bordered by the Deskry River to the south, offering any purchaser the opportunity to live the genuine ‘good life’ lifestyle in a beautiful rural, yet accessible location.

Entering from the bridge at the rear, the entrance hall forms part of the central turret design and has a modern cloak room and stairs leading up to the tower room. The stunning tower room has 12 carefully placed windows capturing the views and 8 skylight windows to the ceiling. This room is used as a creative studio. Returning down to the entrance hall, continue through to the main landing which has two sky light windows and space for reading & relaxing. The spacious master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with new modern suite and adjacent is the third double bedroom, both of which enjoy the beautiful countryside views. A versatile games room/family room leads through to the second generous double bedroom.

Continue down the oak staircase, you will find yourself in the spacious sitting room and this in turn leads you to the octagonal tower snug room with cosy wood burning stove. To the west side of the house is the stunning sun room with four double floor to ceiling windows capturing the incredible views and french doors opening onto the decked patio.

Double bedroom 4 & 5 are generously proportioned and the main family bathroom includes a new freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle. The charming family dining kitchen has three windows capturing the views and has space for a dining table & chairs.
