Beautifully presented, this ground floor two bedroom apartment will capture the imagination of those seeking a charming retreat yet perfectly positioned right in the heart of this bustling coastal town.
Originally built as a Quaker meeting house in 1749, the interior has been skillfully designed to create a pure, pared-back style which is the epitome of understated elegance. Using a colour scheme of gentle whites and tranquil neutrals, there is a sense of flow and harmony throughout this apartment which will quickly ease you into a holiday mindset.
The open plan layout has a sophisticated feel with sofas and chairs in natural tickings and linens along with lovely touches and ambient lighting, while the sleek, monochrome scheme of the kitchen and dining space effortlessly blends together the overall look.
The two bedrooms (one double, one single) continue the theme with high quality finishes and super comfortable mattresses where rest will come easily after a day of fresh salty sea air and relaxed days wandering the historic streets and closes of Berwick upon Tweed.
Sitting just off the A1, the Apartment is perfectly located for short breaks or longer stays throughout any season and provides an excellent base to explore the wider Northumberland and Borders area. With the main East Coast Rail Line running through Berwick it is also an ideal car-free destination served by good local services.
Sitting just a five minute walk from the town centre, the property benefits from excellent amenities right on the doorstep. In one direction, you will find a selection of characterful shops on Castlegate including a book shop, an antique centre, a deli and a fantastic vintage shop, as well as ‘Pier Red’ where you can sip a rich espresso whilst browsing art works and collectibles by popular Northern artists. Also look out for their regular jazz evenings where you can unwind to the smooth, mellow sounds of talented local musicians. A walk in the other direction will take you to Marygate, the town’s main street where you will find a mix of high street names along with local traders.
