Full description
Stunning design and unquestionable wow factor characterise this five bedroom church conversion just 3 miles from Kelso in the Scottish Borders region.

Cairns House is one of those clever places that never fails to astonish with its aesthetic appeal yet also provides a high degree of functionality and comfort.  This former church has 5 bedrooms across its 54' by 34' multi-levelled space, and dining area for up to 14, making it a great choice for a family or group celebrating a special occasion and wanting lots of space.  The vaulted ceilings, incredible rose-glass windows, opaque glass-floor on the first floor and high-tech kitchen and mood lighting are just some of its most unique design features to enjoy.  

Architecturally, its appeal is evident, from its features in Grand Designs and Home & Interiors magazines as well as BBC Homes Live TV show following its conversion in 2007; it has also been described as "one of the most arresting homes in Scotland". The house comes with a fully enclosed garden with barbecue, perfect for children and dogs in the summer months.

Your setting is nearby the historic town of Kelso, and the area has retained most of its original charm, with many independent shops, a 15th century tower and more to explore, with Edinburgh is just an hour away by car.
