In a location that’s straight out of a spy thriller, this exceptional house set on the cliffs in Galloway, Scotland is set to change its owners’ lives for many years to come. Take a look at a few of its features.

Breathtaking views, remote wilderness, sneak a peek at the features in this Galloway self build home.

Sailing enthusiasts Andy and Jeanette were walking their dogs, Nemo and Jess, when they came across an old military listening station perched high on the rugged Galloway cliffs. They now intend to reimagine this site as a single storey, glass-fronted dwelling with spectacular views over the Irish Sea, while minimising the building’s impact on the landscape. 

Have a snoop at this stunning TV house, originally featured on Channel 4 on 4th September 2019.

With a background in textiles, Jeanette focused on the interior design, basing it around neutral shades and natural woods such as walnut.

The new-build is partly covered in earth, to guard against the fierce elements that batter the area and to reduce the visual impact of the house, to satisfy local planning demands.
