Tower House, a Georgian property dating from the late 18th century, and Tower House Cottage are coming to the market as one substantial period home. Its commanding and elevated position on the south side of the river Tweed offers superb views of the Elizabethan town walls of Berwick, the three bridges, the mouth of the river with its pier and lighthouse, and the sea beyond. The property is complemented by stunning grounds extending to 0.795 acres, plus an additional plot of land directly in front of the property which extends to 0.112 acres. Both properties are arranged over three storeys and together they can provide three/four reception rooms, two kitchens, six bedrooms, two bathrooms plus two cloakrooms and a large studio/business space. Presently the clients use the lower ground floor of Tower House for their Arts and Crafts business.

This versatile home proposes a range of possibilities, from providing one large residence, with a door at both lower ground floor and the ground floor levels of the main house connecting to the cottage, or a home with a business. The two properties have their own independent entrances and could also be divided, in order to create a holiday let or a home for a relative from Tower House Cottage, without imposing on the Tower House (subject to obtaining any relevant consent/permissions if required).

Accommodation is arranged over three floors, however the configuration of the residence is such that the lower ground floor openings are onto Tower Road (the river side) and the middle ground floor openings are level with the garden on the opposite side of the building. Nearly all the rooms throughout the property have a dual aspect with windows overlooking the estuary and garden.

Stepping up to the front garden entrance of Tower House, which is Grade II Listed, you are greeted by a pillared portico with doors opening to the central entrance. Passing from the lobby through a doorway surrounded by ornate architrave, between two niches, and a door with impressive stained glass panels, you enter a welcoming reception hall bedecked with opulent plaster cornicing and ceiling rose. The hall leads to the two principal reception rooms and the sweeping spiral staircase lined with yet more niches. Both the drawing room and dining room feature full height, panelled curved bay windows, taking in views of the garden, together with windows on the opposite side of the room that look out over the river towards Berwick. Other emblematic features of these two rooms are the notable fireplaces, the ornate cornicing and ceiling roses, the arched alcoves and the dual aspect windows. From the smart dining room you enter the modern fitted kitchen, with space for seating and informal dining. It has the usual outlooks and its own entrance into the garden. In the drawing room, beyond the archway, is a connecting doorway that steps down into Tower House Cottage.

Upstairs, there is a spacious landing, from which there are three generous double bedrooms, a family bathroom with a capacious linen cupboard, a separate toilet and another deep storage cupboard.

The lower ground floor provides the commercial element of the property, currently operated as a thriving craft pottery, however it would lend itself to other uses - either continued as business premises, or as it formerly was an independent 'granny' flat or holiday let (subject to obtaining the relevant consents and permissions). This floor also benefits from its own entrances (to Tower Road and the garden) and offers three open plan workrooms, bathroom facilities/utility room and a showroom/gallery and adjoining office.

Tower House Cottage, is itself a fine stone built three storey home which links to Tower House. Due to its fantastic location the cottage would appeal to those seeking a sizeable holiday let to explore the fantastic countryside of North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. The property offers on the ground floor a kitchen room with a stone fireplace and a workroom/dining room (currently a weaving studio). The stairs lead to a mid-way landing with a doorway to a paved sun terrace and the garden. On the first floor is a bedroom, large shower room and the main sitting room. It has a fireplace and a sliding glazed double door overlooking the garden. On the top floor, in the eaves is a long room, full of atmosphere, with its roof-light windows offering stunning views over the garden, estuary, Berwick and beyond. This space could facilitate two further bedrooms (subject to obtaining the relevant consents/permissions). All rooms of Tower Cottage enjoy a dual aspect with views of the garden and the River Tweed.

The south-facing walled gardens are one of the many features that make Tower House a special home with parterres in front of the main house, swathes of lawn, rose and flower borders and a number of mature trees (some subject to a tree preservation order) to include two wonderful copper beech trees. Approached through a wide gated entrance, a sweeping gravel drive leads to a double-garage and provides ample additional parking. Tweedmouth is connected to Berwick upon Tweed by three iconic bridges, the Old Bridge 1626, the Royal Tweed Bridge 1928 and the spectacular Royal Border Bridge built for the railway by Robert Stephenson 1850, which can all be clearly viewed from the property.

The property sits high up on the south side of the Tweed and is a convenient walk across the Old Bridge to Berwick town centre, where there are a good range of local amenities, including shops, artisan traders, bars, restaurants, small independent galleries as well as Dewars Lane Granary gallery, the Gymnasium gallery and The Malting's Theatre and Cinema. It also has museums and the famous Town Walls, built in the 16th Century to keep out the marauding Scots, they are the only example of complete bastioned town walls in Britain and the best preserved in Europe. Berwick upon Tweed is on the A1M and is located 57 miles from Edinburgh and 63 miles from Newcastle. It is served well by train services connecting to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London. To travel further afield Newcastle and Edinburgh Airports are approximately 60 miles away.

It has to be said that the sale of this home offers a wonderful opportunity to raise a family in this fabulous setting along with the chance of operating a business or working from home (this includes the option of taking on the functioning pottery). The property will also appeal to those looking for a lifestyle change, to live in this splendid, unspoilt part of North Northumberland, by generating an income from the holiday cottage.
