more details

Built by a prominent Eyemouth family during the reign of George III, this handsome detached stone house sits in a prime waterfront position with no immediate neighbours and has a delightful garden with outbuildings. Currently divided into three separate apartments, the property would make a fantastic holiday let opportunity or an impressive family home if reconfigured, with the original stone staircase partially in place. The house is in a wonderful central location and within a short walk of the town centre, beach, shops and restaurants. Accommodation comprises: Ground Floor: Kitchen, living room with store, two bedrooms and en-suite bathroom. First Floor: Hall, living-dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, box room, utility room, bathroom. Second Floor: Hall, living-dining room, kitchen, utility room, two bedrooms, shower room. Outside: Large private landscaped garden, outbuildings, river views. Distances: Coldingham Bay 4 miles, Berwick Railway Station 8 miles, Dunbar 20 miles, Edinburgh 48 miles (all distances are approximate). Situation: The property is positioned in a front line position on the banks of the Eye Water, who's tributaries draw water from across Berwickshire through into Eyemouth's harbour and beach and out into the North Sea. Tucked away off Harbour Road, the house benefits from a very private and peaceful setting, yet only a short walk from centre of the town, harbour and beach promenade, with shops and restaurants on the doorstep. Eyemouth is an historic fishing town with a good range of local amenities, a well-respected junior and high school and a broad selection of sports clubs including Eyemouth Golf Club. A lot of the industry in Eyemouth is based around the working harbour, this in turn offers the town a charm and character not found anywhere else. The town has access to miles of unspoilt coastline and beaches and is surrounded by a designated AONB (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) such as Coldingham Bay. Eyemouth also offers easy access inland to the beautiful Berwickshire countryside with its rolling hills and stunning views. The nearby river Tweed meanders along the border with England and is famed for its salmon and trout fishing. Eyemouth offers easy access to the A1 for commuting both north and south, whilst there are two mainline railway stations in Berwick upon Tweed, 8 miles to the south or Dunbar, 23 miles to the north. There is also an efficient bus service that operates regular services to many of the nearby towns and villages, not to mention Edinburgh and Newcastle. Despite Eyemouth's proximity to both Edinburgh and Berwick upon Tweed, the area has a low population and can therefore offer a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare. Description: Built in a prime riverside position in 1776 by a local family, this fine Georgian house served as a family home for many generations before being reconfigured to create three independent apartments. The options for a new owner are numerous, the property can remain in its current configuration, perhaps accommodating several generations of the same family, it could become holiday lets or buy-to-lets, or perhaps returned to become a large family residence once again. The house retains its original stone staircase and many charming period features including sash and casements windows and fireplaces.
