The judges venture to the South of Scotland next week to visit three more houses as they continue their quest to find Scotland’s Home of the Year.
Architect Michael Angus, interior designer Anna Campbell-Jones and lifestyle blogger Kate Spiers visit some truly unique homes over the course of this eight-part BBC Scotland series, looking for stand-out design and impressive interiors.
First up is an innovative eco-home on the outskirts of Innerleithen, nestled beautifully in a forest and with some striking design features.
There’s a standout interior ‘bridge’ on one level and in the kitchen the owners have had tiles specially printed with a photograph of their house as it was being constructed to serve as a lasting reminder of their adventurous self-build.
Next is a renovated 19th century cottage in Moffat with a stunning curved staircase that really impresses the judges along with period features that sit alongside contemporary interiors and a surprise hideaway in a shed.
Lastly, a cylindrical ‘upside down’ home on the Solway coast near Kirkcudbright gives the judges the impression of a lighthouse from the outside and, inside, boasts views to a beautiful coastal landscape that’s continually changing.
The fourth episode of Scotland’s Home of the Year will be shown on Wednesday, 1 May, on BBC Scotland from 8-8.30pm.
