With the market picking up and the green shoots of recovery now visible it is important not to lose site of the basics of property.
Of all the basics the right location is absolutely key; always better a poor house in a good location than a good house in a poor location. The property of the week this week is lucky as is benefits from a being a good house in an excellent location.
No 85 Low Greens is a charming three bedroom semi detached house which is located in this convenient spot overlooking the town walls of Berwick.
The property used to be a pub but was converted to provide this spacious and well proportioned home some years ago.
The house has two good sized reception rooms, a kitchen with room for a table and a separate utility room. Upstairs there are three good sized double bedrooms and a large shower room. The loft has been boarded out and provides excellent storage space.
To the rear of the house is a courtyard which has a gate opening onto the road. This provides an excellent parking space when required but also a private sunny courtyard garden which is great for sitting out in and summer barbeques.
What is great about No 85 Low Greens, apart from the accommodation is the all important location.
Low Greens carries on from High Greens and loops around to the end of Violet Terrace which is just along from the Berwick Infirmary. The house occupies a quiet corner plot overlooking the town walls and the open areas in front of them. The town centre is a stroll away and the station is a short walk in the other direction. The outlook from the house is open so the rooms all have a good degree of natural light and it does not feel like a town house.
The house would suit a range of purchasers – the green open spaces around the walls provide a great spot to kick a ball about or explore. A footpath passes the house leading to the Golf course and beach, and as previously commented the town centre is an easy stroll. No 85 really does have a lot to recommend it.
