ALLAN HOUSE, BRIDGE OF ALLAN, UK - CENTRAL SCOTLAND

25

Allan House is a spacious and bright ground-floor apartment in lovely Bridge of Allan. It is located in a handsome sandstone mansion. The apartment was completely renovated to the highest standards and nicely furnished, combining modern design with original features.

It is made up of a generous living room with a fireplace, a well equipped eat-in kitchen, a bathroom with a tub/shower combination, and radiant floor heat. There are two bedrooms, one with 2 twins and one with 1 queen bed.

The apartment features high ceilings, and the living room’s south-facing bay window overlooks the lawn in front of the house. Garden chairs and a croquet set are provided for your enjoyment, and there are also communal grounds at the back of the house.

The apartment comes with Wi-Fi and a washing machine and drying rack, but no dryer. It is far enough from the main road that it is quiet, and parking is available right in front of the house.
The friendly owner lives nearby and is easy to reach if needed.

A grocery store is just a 5-minute walk away. Restaurants, cafes, and pubs are just a bit farther. The local railway station is about fifteen minutes away by foot and offers service to Stirling, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and points to the north.

Customer comments about Allan House, Bridge of Allan, UK - Central Scotland

Loved the high ceilings, decorative plaster work, retro decor and overall space. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and beautiful neighborhoods." Bill Gross and Jan Clarke

"Great! It was lovely to be able to walk to shops and even to the train. Sally was so nice as were the other people who live in the house. Comfortable beds. Nice and clean. Comfortable layout of the flat. Bathroom could have been better located, but certainly not a problem. My experience there could not have been better. I'd highly recommend it!"
