The property
This Grade II listed property with its striking frontage dates back to the early 1800s. Today the property boasts a number of fine period details including fireplaces, timber sash windows, dado and picture rails. It also provides the opportunity to create a spacious and characterful home.

To the front of the property are two formal reception rooms, both with attractive bay windows and feature fireplaces. The first still retains some
original panelling, while the second opens into a formal dining room with its welcoming oil-fired Rayburn stove and solid-wood floor.

The spacious breakfasting kitchen opens off the dining room. It has a beamed ceiling and is fitted with cream painted units beneath contrasting worktops, a gas hob and electric oven. There is also space for a dishwasher and fridge/ freezer. Located at one end is a useful pantry/utility area which offers good storage and plumbing for
a washing machine.

There are three generously proportioned bedrooms on the first floor. The two principal bedrooms both have bay windows and fireplaces, while the third has an en suite shower room and opens into an
additional reception room. This large space has direct access to the rear garden and also has an impressive vaulted ceiling. As such it would lend itself to any number of uses, including as a games room, family room, studio, teenagers' den or self-contained annex if required.

Two further double bedrooms can be found on the second floor, again boasting bay windows and character fireplaces. These and their first-floor counterparts are all served by a tiled family bathroom fitted with white sanitary ware.

A huge attraction of this property is the small pan-tiled, 18th century cottage which accompanies it. Once featured in a painting by L.S. Lowry, the building also forms part of the town's Lowry Trail. Although currently used for storage, the building
provides the potential for conversion into a self-contained annex, detached office, or holiday rental property (subject to the usual planning consents).

The two properties sit on the south bank of the River Tweed approximately half a mile from the main town of Berwick upon Tweed and near the Old Bridge. Greatly admired by artist L.S. Lowry and now the centre of a thriving arts and culture scene, Berwick upon Tweed offers a wide range of local amenities. These include high street and independent shops, supermarkets, schools and leisure facilities, in particular the award-winning Maltings Theatre. There is also a mainline railway station with regular and direct services to Newcastle, Edinburgh and London King's Cross.

The property is situated in close proximity to the A1 trunk road and conveniently located for easy access to superb countryside, the stunning beaches of North Northumberland's Heritage Coast, as well as the eastern Scottish Borders. For those seeking
recreational activities, there are a wealth of opportunities to explore, such as water sports, fishing, horse riding, golf including links courses and traditional country pursuits.

A private garden stands to the rear of the property. This well-maintained space is terraced over three levels with a patio for al fresco dining, a lawned area for relaxing and a useful single-storey stone potting shed. Although manageable, the garden itself provides plenty of potential for keen gardeners to stamp their mark on it and create a truly individual haven.
