This is Ednam House Hotel in Kelso, built in 1761 and retaining many of its original features.
|incredible plasterwork in every room|
|probably was the original dining room|
|the show-off cupola that was all the rage in the mid eighteenth century|
|reminder to use arches somewhere|
|all the fireplaces were a joy|
|detail of the grate|
|plasterwork over a fireplace|
|the orginal house - the wings I suspect were added later|
I had been dithering about fireplace positions on the basis that all their chimney pots needed to share the same stack. clearly this is not the case and my house can have fireplaces where it likes.
