MID TERRACED PROPERTY

This traditional mid terraced property has enormous potential for a buyer to modernise and update to their own tastes, and is set in a well established residential area, which enjoys easy access to the centre of town, harbour and amenities. Although in need of a degree of modernisation, once completed this will be a lovely family home, with much character and several pleasing features. The accommodation is readily adaptable, with a useful room off the lounge – ideal as a study or little dining space and the master bedroom has been used in past times as a sitting room. The attic bedroom has tremendous possibilities to provide a super double with a beautiful marble fireplace. A small easily kept yard at the rear accesses a detached stone built garage incorporating an outhouse, perfect for use as a workshop, or even as a home office.

LOCATION

Eyemouth is steeped in the traditions of the sea. The town centres around the harbour and beach, proving a popular tourist attraction. Local facilities include primary and secondary schools, 18-hole golf course, swimming pool, sports centre and a variety of local shops. Ideally situated for exploring the Berwickshire coastline including the nearby St Abb's Head Nature Reserve and coastal walks, with the town of Berwick upon Tweed some nine miles to the south providing a range of supermarkets and larger shops and facilities, Eyemouth is within easy commuting distance to Edinburgh with the recently upgraded A1 and has Edinburgh and Newcastle accessible within an hour on the main east coast rail line from Berwick upon Tweed.

BEDROOM  1                    
14’6" x 12’7" (4.42m x 3.83m)
