9-13 West Street, Berwick upon Tweed, TD15 1AS


Development opportunity.
Large and flexible accommodation over 3 floors.
Centre of town location.
Prominent, traditional frontage.


The property is located in the historic town of Berwick upon Tweed (population 14,000), North Northumberland, which is situated approximately equidistant between Edinburgh to the north and Newcastle upon Tyne to the south (65 miles each way). The town is served by both the A1 trunk road and the mainline east coast railway network giving regular access to Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne (approximately 45 minutes) and London (approximately 3.5 hours).

Although not a large town, Berwick thrives as a regional market town and commercial centre with a resultant catchment population of around 42,000.

Modern Berwick is an attractive coastal town which offers a range of retail, leisure and banking services and benefits from being a significant tourist destination, particularly in the summer months.

The property is situated in a good secondary trading position on West Street, a charming cobbled street connecting the main retail area, Marygate, to the north and Bridge Street to the south. West Street is a popular mixed use location benefiting from good foot fall, good occupation rates and a number of popular, niche covenants.

Nearby traders include The Maltings Theatre, Robertson’s Department Store, Upper West Street Restaurant, Cocoature and Mielle Patisserie.

The property is centrally located and is easily accessible. A large off street car park is situated on Eastern Lane, approximately 100 metres from the property.

This traditional Georgian terraced property is thought to date to the late 1700s and has Grade II listed status. The property is constructed of mass stone masonry with an attractive ashlar sandstone facade and stone cornicing all under a pitched, pantile covered roof.

Set over three floors the accommodation, which is currently configured as retail with storage and offices at first and second floor, is spacious and flexible and believed to be suitable for a variety of uses subject to obtaining all necessary consents.

Now in need of complete modernisation and refurbishment the property offers a rare town centre development opportunity with excellent potential for either a tenant, owner occupier or investor.
