Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a rare opportunity to buy a family home and versatile business premises on one of Berwick’s best-loved streets. The house offers bright and spacious accommodation with 3-4 bedrooms and an enchanting private walled garden. Until very recently, the shop was occupied by the owner’s well-established specialist cookshop, which has relocated nearby.

THE HOUSE
Number 18 is a late Georgian, Grade II listed townhouse within the famous Walls of Berwick upon Tweed. The house has three generous ensuite bedrooms, one of which gives access to a fourth twin-bedroom, which could also function as a nursery or study. Secondary-glazing to the front means the house is surprisingly quiet inside, despite its central location

LAYOUT
On the ground floor is a bright reception room to the front, a large kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility room, a spacious dining room to the back, downstairs toilet and fitted study. The dining room and study area are part of a new extension and look out onto the well-tended patio garden. The garden was landscaped when the extension was built, and has many attractive features – both old and new!

The spacious hallway in the centre of the house has an elegant townhouse staircase leading upstairs to an open, well-lit landing at the top.

Bedroom 1 - a good sized double bedroom with built-in wardrobe and an ensuite shower room.

A short corridor with connecting door from the landing leads to the bathroom and second double bedroom.

Bedroom 2 has three large windows to the front, large walk-in hanging cupboard and additional storage. This generous room has previously been divided into two, comprising the previous owners’ private living area when the house was a B&B.

Bedroom 3 to the back has an ensuite shower/toilet. A further twin bedroom is accessed via this third bedroom. This room is part of the new extension and could also be used as a workroom or office as it is light and airy with velux windows and good storage.

GARDEN
At the back of the house is a private walled patio garden. At one time the house was a bakery and the patio area still includes two large bread ovens, which make a fascinating feature in a tiled wall. A versatile workshop unit could easily be converted to a separate workspace. Above the bread ovens, accessed by a steel staircase, is a raised garden area, currently used as a vegetable plot, and a brick-laid patio.

The garden also has an outside hose connection and power point.

SHOP PREMISES
Number 16 is a deceptively large and versatile retail unit. There is considerable storage both at the back and in loft space and an accessible toilet for staff or customers. The shop can be separated off completely, or can be accessed from the garden.

Net internal: 650m2.
Rateable value: Rateable area 62.1m2 - £4550
EPC rating: Exempt due to listing.

A free short-stay carpark on Bridge Street helps customers access the street during the day, and provides overnight parking for residents.

LOCATION
Berwick upon Tweed is the most northerly town in England, famous for its Elizabethan defensive walls, and close relationship with Scotland. It's an attractive coastal town with fascinating architecture, sandy beaches, and a good range of shops, restaurants and services. There are plenty of facilities for entertainment, sport and leisure within the town. Keen sailors, anglers, ramblers, cyclists and golfers will find plenty of resources locally.

The mainline station provides regular services to Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne, each just under an hour away and London only 3.5 hours by direct train. Berwick is on the A1, giving easy access to Newcastle and Edinburgh, both approximately an hour by car.

Bridge Street is considered the “destination” street in the town. It is well known locally as one of the most popular trading streets in Berwick, with good footfall, high quality shops, low vacancy rates and free short-stay carparking. Many of the shops on Bridge Street have been refurbished to a high standard and have a high proportion of owner-occupiers.
