Scottish Borders Church Conversion For Sale
When the current owners first set eyes on Stichill's church, it was in a sorry state. No longer in use, it was all but derelict - the roof was falling in, the land around it was a wilderness and the windows were all broken.

It took a lot of work and dedication but the contemporary, high spec conversion of Cairns House has resulted in it being featured on BBC1 Homes Live as one of their "Dream Properties". It has also been in several newspapers and magazines including Grand Designs, The Guardian Magazine, Homes and Interiors, and was described as "one of the most arresting homes in Scotland" by The Scotsman magazine.

It is C-Listed and retains many beautiful architectural features whilst at the same time effortlessly incorporating a number of bespoke features, including underfloor heated travertine flooring thoughout.

Named after the longest serving minister of the church, Cairns House has 5000sq ft of accommodation, currently arranged as a five bedroom home with the vestry having been converted into a two bedroom fully self-contained annexe.

The property is set in a walled garden of almost half an acre . . . with no graves either!

This stunning seven bedroom church conversion is located three miles from the beautiful town of Kelso, and within easy commuting distance to Edinburgh or Newcastle.
