Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Berrywell House is a substantial, south-facing Georgian property on a grand scale which dates from around 1760 and is set within well maintained, landscaped and wooded grounds that provide both shelter and amenity. The property is in need of refurbishment but offers bright and spacious accommodation which has been designed to make the most of the superb setting and wonderful far reaching views over farmland to the Cheviot Hills. The basement and second floor give opportunities for further accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. The house, which is believed to have been visited by Robert Burns during his tour of the Borders in 1787, provides large, well proportioned family accommodation which offers the convenience of being on the edge of the town yet has the benefits of a private rural setting
