Berwick upon Tweed, Bridge Street
A unique opportunity to purchase this Georgian Grade II listed town house and retail premises, situated within Berwick’s famous Walls, on one of the most popular ‘destination’ streets. The house (Number 18 Bridge Street) offers bright and spacious accommodation with three to four bedrooms and private walled garden. The shop is a deceptively large and versatile retail unit.
The house is a Georgian Grade II listed town house, dating from the 1740s, which was once a bakery and is full of original features. The property comprises an entrance hall with door through to the garden and an internal door leading to inner hall and central staircase. To the front of the property is a light and spacious sitting room. Towards the rear is a well-fitted kitchen with separate utility room. The kitchen opens onto a dining room, which has a glazed door and windows looking out to the attractive walled garden. Off the dining room is a downstairs toilet and study with fitted worktop and shelving.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, and the third with bathroom. A fourth room is accessed through the back bedroom. This could be used as a further bedroom or study. Externally, to the rear of the property is a private walled patio garden, a workshop and access through to the shop.
The property has been modernised in the last 10 years, and benefits from gas central heating and secondary glazing to the front, making it both very quiet internally and heat-efficient.
Number 16 is a large spacious shop to the front with generous storage and kitchen facilities to the rear, additional loft space and toilet. The shop can be separated completely from Number 18 or accessed via the garden.
An early viewing of this unique property is highly recommended.
Berwick upon Tweed is the most northerly town in England, famous for its Elizabethan Walls and ambiguous status in the past, frequently changing hands between Scotland and England. Modern Berwick is 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, sports and leisure within the town. The mainline station provides regular services to Edinburgh and Newcastle each just under an hour away and London only three and a half hours by direct train. The A1 skirts around Berwick giving easy access to local and national road networks.
Bridge Street itself is well known locally as the most popular trading street in Berwick, with good footfall, a range of high-quality shops, free short-stay car parking nearby, as well as a close knit business and residential community. Recently there has been a great deal of private and grant-funded investment in this historic area of the town. Many of the shops on Bridge Street have been refurbished to a high standard and have a significant proportion of owner occupiers.
