Berwick House is a prominent, yet private historic Grade II listed Georgian family home in the heart of the town.

The six-bedroom property is on the market at a guide price of £360,000.

Dating back to 1700s, the property has only had two owners in the past 70 years and is one of the most charming and discreet homes in Berwick.

Steeped in history, it has a wealth of space both internally and externally with a pretty Italian-style private courtyard for peace and tranquility.

Improvements over the past 17 years have ensured Berwick House is well presented throughout, with many original features retained and renewed, and commanding sweeping views of the Tweed and the Old Bridge.

The property occupies a prominent position on the Elizabethan walls. and is little more than a stone’s throw from the Old Bridge itself.

The far reaching views of the river and Old Bridge present a never-ending panorama of colour, interest and activity.

The deeds, written on vellum, date back to the early 18th century, and a full record of deed of ownership is available.

Currently one dwelling, Berwick House is actually two separate houses, one a virtual mirror image of the other, each with its own entrance and on its own title. It is a family home of four reception rooms, six bedrooms, and three bathrooms arranged over four floors, as well as a courtyard and off-street undercover secure parking.

The house has ceiling insulation and gas central heating in all main rooms.

The present configuration suits the current owners, but if required the house could convert back into two separate dwellings, providing a home and income. Each is autonomous and would provide uninterrupted privacy.

The scope and flexibility of the property is endless and provides a range of opportunities to a potential purchaser as the custodian of what is a truly unique property.

The current owners have priced the property realistically for what is a reluctant sale to allow them to relocate overseas to join family.
