This very contemporary property forms part of a high quality conversion of a Grade II listed building within walking distance of Berwick town centre and right on the waterfront. Once a whaling house, then a small maltings serving Berwick’s very own brewery, before becoming a home for sail making, this building has taken on a new lease of life with this stunning conversion into 12 superior townhouses of which Waterfront is one.
The view overlooks the estuary of the River Tweed with further uninterrupted views towards Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island. Huge timber roof beams, deep window cills and cast iron columns characterise this property and the professionally designed interior décor, more than lives up to the character of its architecture. Waterfront also benefits from a small ‘secret garden’ tucked up some steep steps behind the house. Worth the climb for the views! Not ideal for young children but a super little outside space to grab some sunshine or to retreat to with a flask of coffee and a good book!

Prices and Availability
Berwick is an attractive coastal town on the River Tweed which forms part of the border between England and Scotland. It is officially part of England but curiously its football team is famous for playing in the Scottish football league. The town is also known for its association with painter LS Lowry and there is a trail of information about him around the town. We also recommend the walk around the town ramparts and the many independent shops and cafes along Bridge Street.
Waterfront has an ideal location by the waterside and is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. By car, the beautiful borders countryside and coastline are easily accessible.
For further information on the area, see our Scottish Borders section

Please note: Until September, a private parking space for Waterfront will not be available, but it will be after this date and there is plenty of unrestricted on-street parking around the house.
As a 3 storey contemporary house, its not ideal if you don’t like stairs and you don’t like contemporary!
The secret garden is accessed via a stairway through the communal foyer of the building and a bit of a hike (worth it though, for the views alone)
'Waterfront better in real life than amazing pics on website! Didn't think it possible!' guest via Twitter
Walking round the castle walls on a warm sunny day with magnificent sea views and stumbling across some stunning Georgian properties and equally stunning little restaurant on Bridge St, was just wonderful
