And whether you are a fan of period property or modern new-builds, we’re sure you’ll find one of these of interest.

First up is Victoria Lodge in Gavinton, a charming, aptly-named Victorian villa, dating to around 1897, which has been cleverly extended to create an impressive family home with versatile living space, with a large family room to the rear.

A galleried room above, which looks out onto the walled garden out through the glazed gable wall, would make an ideal tranquil office space.
