The Old Vicarage is a unique and eminently impressive property and is one of the most prominent buildings in Tweedmouth.
The stone built Gothic Victorian house is currently operated as an award winning guesthouse with seven letting rooms and a two bedroom owner’s accommodation. However, it would be straightforward to reinstate the property as a private home.
The ground floor accommodation is accessed via an attractive stone portico into a reception hallway off which the three key reception rooms are arranged. To the south east is the elegant drawing room with dual aspect windows overlooking the garden and an attractive original cast iron open fireplace.
Adjacent to the dining room is a cosy sitting room which enjoys views across the lawn and has an original Victorian fireplace with decorative tiled insert.
Across the hallway is the kitchen and associated stores. An original cast iron range stove has been retained as a feature within this practically designed kitchen. A door leads out to the rear courtyard and there is access to the kitchen stores. There is also a double bedroom at ground floor level with en-suite bathroom.
At first floor, the bedroom accommodation is arranged off a central landing. There are six bedrooms including five with well-appointed en-suite shower rooms. Each room has elegant proportions with original fireplaces, high ceilings, detailed cornicing and deep skirting boards throughout.
The bedrooms on the eastern side of the property have excellent views across the Tweed estuary and bedroom 4 leads out to a private roof terrace. At the northern end of the landing is a convenient shower room, W.C. and linen store.
The second floor is currently used as owners’ accommodation and provides two double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom with separate shower.
The garden to the Old Vicarage is arranged on three sides with access from the driveway on to a gravelled parking area.
