46 Main Street, Tweedmouth is an early 18th century Grade II listed Georgian townhouse of great charm and interest. English Heritage suggest that the front of the building with its bays is a later addition to an earlier property but would have had direct views over the River to Berwick upon Tweed when first built. The property is currently arranged with four bedrooms and four reception rooms and while requiring some refurbishment, would offer any purchaser the opportunity of securing a spacious and fine period house. Inside, the property has great character and has retained a number of period features including fireplaces, some panelling, dado and picture rails and sash windows. No50 Main Street is an early 18th century cottage which is currently used as storage but could, subject to the usual consents, be converted for a number of purposes. The property is included in a painting by L S Lowry and noted on the Lowry Trail panel on Main Street.
Tweedmouth is located on the south side of the River Tweed just across the Old Bridge from Berwick upon Tweed and has a range of local shops and services including primary schooling and a surgery.
