The town has a comprehensive range of shops with national supermarkets and high street chains as well as local shops and traders. The town is well placed for access to the A1 providing excellent transport links to the regional and national road networks. Berwick upon Tweed also has a mainline station which has regular services to Edinburgh (40mins) and Newcastle upon Tyne (45mins) as well as London (3hrs 40mins) and intervening stations. The town is well placed to enjoy the surrounding countryside with easy access to the local beaches and golf courses. The open countryside of the Tweed Valley, Cheviot and Lammermuir Hills is also within easy reach.
Berwick upon Tweed, as the region's principal town, has a thriving rentals and holiday lettings market with constant demand for quality property. The apartments and maisonette at Scotsgate House offer modern and spacious accommodation. The current asking price reflects a realistic discount from the open market value and means that the property when fully let (No1 - 550pcm, No5 475pcm and No6 at 475pcm) should create a gross yield of 8%.
The flats are being offered with the benefit of a 999 year lease issued in 2008 and a ground rent of 50pa.
