Located directly on the sea front, this rare combination of a townhouse and self contained apartment/annex offers a fabulous lifestyle opportunity. The apartment is currently running as a successful holiday let and is well established – perfect for someone to simply take over the reins whist the townhouse offers charming accommodation over three floors. The beachfront location is superb with direct sea views and access immediately on to the promenade.
A unique and exciting combination comprising of a charming three storey townhouse with adjoining self contained annex currently operating as a successful and very popular holiday let.- located together directly on the sea front with direct access to the promenade. Dating back to 1570 this property has an interesting, vibrant history and now provides an endearing and charming family home right in the heart of Eyemouth. The accommodation extends over three floors and there are plans in place to further extend and reconfigure the accommodation if desired.
The adjoining annex was converted much more recently from a former fisherman’s workshop to create what is now a sleek, modern self-contained apartment with direct sea views. Currently running as a successful holiday let, there is a fabulous opportunity for those looking for a similar venture and with the current popularity for ‘stay-cations’ it is likely to be a very well considered investment. Equally for those hoping to cater for extended family/ multi generation living, the apartment would be perfectly suited, and whilst it has its own private access from the front and rear, it is also connected to the main house via the utility room.
The location of this property is second to none; positioned in the heart of town yet within a quiet close, the property backs directly on to the sea front with immediate access on to the promenade. The charming walled courtyard to the rear features a raised seating area overlooking the beach with the cliffs and dramatic coastline beyond. Unusually for the centre of Eyemouth the space to the rear also provides private gated parking for two vehicles or even a boat, not to mention the double garage (also with development potential) and former smokehouse now providing a useful outhouse.
Eyemouth is steeped in the traditions of the sea with the central harbour and beach proving a popular tourist attraction and the local area is frequented by divers, walkers, outdoor and dog lovers. Local facilities, all within easy walking distance include primary and modern secondary schools, health centre, 18-hole golf course, swimming pool and sports centre. Eyemouth is ideally situated for exploring the North East coastline, most immediately Berwickshire to St Abbs Head Nature Reserve, while the surrounding countryside is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty with rolling hills and plentiful farmland. The A1 trunk road is within 2 miles of the town giving quick and easy access to Edinburgh, Newcastle and the historic town of Berwick upon Tweed lying some nine miles to the south providing a wide range of supermarkets, larger shops, sporting and entertainment facilities.
