Bailey House is situated in the heart of the coastal village of Spittal, just a short walk from the sandy beaches and promenade. Spittal offers a village shop, pubs and schooling and nearby Tweedmouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed offer further amenities including five national supermarkets, restaurants and bistros, cafés, hotels and pubs and a wide selection of boutiques and shops. The town also has a thriving cultural scene with art galleries, a theatre and cinema, museums, a film and media arts festival and food festival. For those looking for an active lifestyle there is a popular leisure centre with a swimming pool, gyms, a football and rugby club, speedway, many golf courses locally and plenty of water-based sports and activities both on the Tweed and on the coast. Berwick also has wonderful coastal and countryside walks on the doorstep with hiking, rambling and mountain biking being very popular. For schooling there are nursery, primary, middle and high schools that serve the town and private schooling is available at Longridge Towers which is nearby. For those looking to commute, travel and shop, the mainline railway station in the town offers regular services to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London; both Edinburgh and Newcastle are under an hour travel time and London is approximately three hours and twenty minutes. There is also the A1 trunk road which bypasses the town and provides easy access both north and south respectively. Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, Bamburgh Castle and the ancient Border towns of Coldstream, Kelso and Melrose are also within easy reach. Despite Berwick’s proximity to both Edinburgh and Newcastle, the area has a low population and can therefore offer a quality of life that is becoming increasingly rare.


Bailey House is a double fronted end-of-terrace family home under a slate roof and offers well-laid out accommodation over two floors, a private rear garden and an attached garage with workshop. The property is well-presented but would benefit from some refurbishment. On the ground floor, the front door opens into the hall and a door leads through into the sitting room, with a window to the front of the house and built-in shelving. A door from the sitting room leads into the dining room, another good-sized reception room with a window to the front, an open fireplace with a tiled surround and an Edinburgh Press. Off the dining room is the kitchen which is to the rear of the house with a window and a door leading out into the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units with countertops over and there is a pantry, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a fridge, cooker and dishwasher. Stairs rise from the ground floor to the upstairs landing which is a generous size and has a door opening out on to the garage roof, which used to have a rooftop terrace garden and this would need to be reinstated, however there is the possibility of building over the garage subject to planning permission. The master bedroom has a window to the front and has the space and potential to create an en-suite bedroom. The second double bedroom has windows to the front and side and the third bedroom is a single with a window to the rear. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom, with a window to the rear and fitted with a bath, WC and hand basin.


The house has a fully enclosed rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a patio. There is a roof top terrace on the garage accessed from the landing the house but this would need to be reinstated with railings. There is a garage with power and light and a small workshop. Parking is available in the garage or there is ample unrestricted on-street parking.
