To demolish and replace existing dilapidated farmhouse with modern, highly insulated 3 bedroom house.

With a gently sloping south-westerly aspect, a single aspect house was designed to make full use of the expansive views across to Lanarkshire and the Tinto hills.

Large sliding doors in the living room open out to a terrace giving un-interupted views to the countyside.

A wood burning stove and oil fired Raeburn enable cooking, heating and hot water thoughout the winter when powercuts are common in this remote part of the country.
