Location: Melrose, Roxburghsire
Sensitively restored to protect the integrity of the listed building, this property oozes character and charm. The overall look is beautifully pared-back, using a beguilling palette of period colours and distinctive Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian pieces.
Everything which could be re-used has been, using local companies in the Borders to supply and re-upholster wherever possible, and local lighting companies to turn wonderful old wine flagons into lamps. The result is a house infused with the rich history of the area and boasting the most incredible backdrop.
Originally built as a manse for the minister of Melrose Church, and dating from around 1810, architect John Smith was also responsible for the design of Sir Walter Scott’s home at nearby Abbotsford.
