SSlitrig Edge, Hawick The difference owes everything to its present owners, Anne and Jim Lee, who designed and built the house in 2001 – their third self-build project. “There have been changes made since the house was completed,” says Anne. “Originally we had a conservatory and two double bedrooms. However, what we thought we wanted at the design stage turned out not to be ideal after living in the house for a while, so we replaced the conservatory with a rear-facing extension – and turned the dining room into a third bedroom. Since then the kitchen has been completely refitted and everything has been kept up to date, making it a really comfortable and easy home to live in,” she adds.

Pristine white decoration enhances the sense of space and light in this flawlessly presented home. The accommodation now comprises entrance vestibule and split-level hall, sitting room, fully fitted dining kitchen with open access to an adjoining sun/family room – the extension that superceded the original conservatory – three double bedrooms (master en suite) and family bathroom.
The interior reflects attention to detail and an appreciation for quality materials, evident in the choice of wood-effect Karndean flooring in the entrance vestibule and hallway, in the case of the latter contrasted by white-painted timber finishes – the hall also has a built-in storage cupboard for coats, shoes etc.
