Modern style at the foot of the Eildons

The small exclusive development of Scottsdale consists of just 14 houses in all, constructed around a considerately-designed cul-de-sac on the fringes of the highly desirable Abbey town of Melrose.

This is an impressive, thoroughly contemporary home, in pristine condition throughout, offering a beautifully-planned interior finished to an exacting standard.

With an excellent level of living space, including an enviable studio and office set to the side, and fantastic location nestled at the base of the iconic Eildon Hills, this striking family home truly provides the best of both worlds: a prime location in a rural setting, yet with local amenities and city life within easy reach.

While there is no question that this is a modern day home in every conceivable way, the clever architectural design has successfully achieved a traditional feel more commonly prevalent and associated with houses of an older era; such as high ceilings, cornicing and quality panelled doors.

The open-plan arrangement of the sunken sitting room and dining room creates a most appealing entrance, while the fantastic highly-stylish family kitchen with included snug creates additional casual living space.

Of particular note is the adjoining office and studio, which opens up a wealth of possibilities; ideal as a home office suite or gym, but equally perfect as a teenager’s rumpus area.
