The Retreat is one of the most prominent, impressive and well-known properties in Berwick upon Tweed. It sits on Berwick's Elizabethan town walls with wonderful views of the River Tweed.

Exterior: Lawned Garden, Patio, Garden Outbuilding. Description: The Retreat is an impressive red brick, detached family home which was built circa 1740. It occupies a generous plot at the end of The Avenue on the Town Walls. The impressive accommodation is spread over three floors and flows naturally from room to room with the family sitting room on the top floor offering stunning views over the Tweed estuary. Although arguably requiring a programme of cosmetic decoration The Retreat still retains many of the original features including panelled doors, cornicing and stone herring-bone floor in the lounge. Accessed from The Avenue the front door leads straight into a welcoming reception hallway. Most of the accommodation on the ground floor can be accessed off the reception hallway starting with the lounge. The lounge is a wonderful room which offers the original paved herring-bone floor and working open fire. The lounge also offers access to a rear hall which connects into the east facing conservatory and drawing room. Like the lounge the drawing room is an elegant room with an Adams style fireplace. A further connecting door leads back into the reception hallway which in turn leads to the dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. The dining room offers a beautiful polished wooden floor and a patio door to the garden. The kitchen beyond has a range of base units, integrated appliances and a wonderful tiled scene depicting Berwick estuary behind the cooker splashback. There is a north facing pantry cupboard off the kitchen. The ground floor is serviced by a W.C and large coat cupboard. A sweeping stair leads to the first-floor landing from the reception hallway on the ground floor. The landing leads to the master bedroom which has lovely views over the garden and Quay Walls and built-in cupboards. There is also two further double bedrooms with easterly views and a well-presented family bathroom. The central stair continues to the second-floor landing. The landing gives access to bedroom 4 which is currently being used as a store room and the upstairs sitting room. The sitting room would make an excellent 5th bedroom as it has particularly stunning views over the estuary and coastline beyond. Outside: The Retreat sits in ample garden grounds. The garden wraps around the side the front of the property and is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders. A patio off the dining room and kitchen is an ideal space for alfresco dining. Mature borders are well stocked with fruit trees, hydrangeas, plants and shrubs. There is a secure garden outhouse at the far end of the patio. Services: Oil fired central heating, mains water, electricity and mains drainage. Distances: Berwick Railway Station 1 mile, Edinburgh 56 miles, Newcastle 65 miles (all distances are approximate).
