Property Description

Full description

Springbank, situated at 34 Castle Terrace, Berwick-upon-Tweed, represents one of the finest detached Victorian residences within this Border market town. Believed to have been built circa 1860 by the owner of the Berwick Brewery Company, the property was purchased by the current owners in 2006. The house occupies a magnificent elevated position in one of the most sought after residential areas of Berwick-upon-Tweed, overlooking the town and river valley towards the south. The property has one of the most impressive frontages onto Castle Terrace, with a beautiful stone wall with pillared surround and gated entrance leading up through the majestic driveway to the entrance courtyard. The house has gardens and grounds that extend to approximately 1.1 acres and include many tall mature trees, giving good screening and privacy.

The open lawned gardens are set out to the south elevation at the front of the house, whilst to the rear the gardens have been very well tiered and landscaped with box hedging, stunning flower beds and fabulous fruit trees. The rear boundary wall accommodates a large greenhouse with mature vine and potting shed and leads through to the enclosed small paddock at the rear of the house.

The property itself has a great deal of style and character and the current owners carried out considerable improvement works when they purchased the house, including the refurbishment of the kitchen, the bathrooms, the heating and complete redecoration.

Its entrance from the western elevation leads through the vestibule to a stunning reception hall, with a beautiful period staircase leading to the galleried landing above. From the hall there are four principal reception rooms, three of which face south onto the front lawned gardens. The central drawing room has a beautiful bow window and the fireplaces are stunning. The kitchen and family breakfasting room is at the rear of the property and has an arrangement of handmade Callerton Kitchen supplied cabinets, with contrasting wood and worktops. They are complemented by modern appliances and feature a four oven Aga. The kitchen leads on to the rear hall, connecting to a gardenerís wc, a useful utility room, great storage areas and a very comfortable study.

The main hall has access to storage areas, a cloakroom/wc and a back staircase that leads to the first floor of the attic rooms above.

The principal first floor originally had five bedrooms, but now the master suite incorporates two rooms, with a stunning bedroom to the centre of the house with bow window, leading on to a luxury en-suite dressing room with professionally fitted cabinets and a magnificent en-suite bathroom with underfloor heating. The three remaining double bedrooms have access to a family bathroom/wc with shower.

The staircase then leads to the second floor where the attic provides a fifth double bedroom, with study area, sitting area and playroom.

The property has gas radiator central heating, a comprehensive alarm system, fine tall ceilings with beautiful plasterwork and cornicing and very elegant interior design, in keeping with the period of the house.

Springbank is undoubtedly one of the finest detached family homes in Berwick-upon-Tweed. It enjoys convenient accessibility into the town centre, with its main line railway linking to Edinburgh in the north and London to the South. The A1 links throughout Northumberland to the market towns of Alnwick and Morpeth, as well as the stunning coastline with its medieval castles and magnificent beaches and golf courses.
