79 Main Street, Main Street, Berwick upon Tweed, TD15 1RD
79 Main Street is an impressive semi-detached Victorian three/four bedroom house located in the popular seaside village of Spittal, Berwick upon Tweed. The house was built during the 1860’s and has spacious, bright and well-proportioned rooms with original detailing and features including cornicing, ceiling roses, deep skirtings, bay windows and working shutters. The house has been decorated to a high standard.
The entrance porch is floored with original tessellated tiling and a beautiful stained-glass inner doorway opens into a good length hall, with doors leading off to a reception room, kitchen, en-suite bedroom and a garden conservatory room at the rear, which runs the full width of the house. Sustainable bamboo wood flooring has been laid throughout the ground floor and the original pitch pine staircase leads up to the first floor where there is wooden flooring throughout.
The large, front-facing reception room has an ornate cast iron working fireplace, with solid marble surround. Behind the reception room is a large, attractive double bedroom with fully tiled en-suite shower room. The contemporary, open-plan style kitchen has been tastefully modernised to a high standard with double sink, filter tap unit and generous worktop and cupboarding units, leading through to a large, light and airy garden room with ample dining and seating space, which looks out to the private rear garden. A door at the end of the garden room leads into a light utility room containing a 1.5 sink with draining board over a double cupboard unit and adjacent space for a washing machine. There are wall-mounted drying racks, shelving and space for further white goods and storage.
The handsome staircase leads to a good size family bathroom located on the half-landing, which has been modernised with contemporary white sanitary fixtures, including an over-bath shower and wall mounted bath filler taps. Continuing up the stairs leads to a large landing, ideal as a bright office or study space. Off the landing is a light-filled, sizeable drawing room with attractive gas fireplace and original features. This could easily become a fourth bedroom if required and there are two further light double bedrooms both overlooking the gardens, the master bedroom having intricate ceiling features.
Outside, there are low maintenance gardens to the front and rear of the property with mature trees, shrubs, and bushes. The rear garden has a good size patio area providing ample room for entertaining. Attached to the rear of the house are two outbuildings for storage.
