In the south of Scotland, the judges consider a home in the trees, an extended cottage and a home whose views render them speechless. But only one can make it to the final.
Three property experts set out to find Scotland’s Home of the Year. They are architect and university teacher Michael Angus, renowned Glasgow-based interior designer Anna Campbell-Jones and globally recognised lifestyle blogger, Kate Spiers.
In this programme, they are in the south of Scotland, evaluating three homes. One is an innovative eco-home on the outskirts of Innerleithen, nestled beautifully in a forest and complete with striking design features - including blinds on the outside. There is a lovingly renovated and extended 19th-century cottage in the town of Moffat, which boasts the best shed one judge has ever seen and a striking ‘upside down’ cylindrical home on the Solway coast near Kirkcudbright, with views that very nearly render the judges speechless.
Each home will be scored out of ten for functionality, distinctiveness and clever design, but only one of them will make it to the final.
