Yarrow Villa was built in 1707, the first year of George II's reign and the same year The Act of Union was ratified by Scotland and England. Built with sandstone with later Victorian brick extensions, this fine period house offers generous living accommodation over four floors. The property retains much of its original character and charm with period features including sash and casement windows, ornate cornicing, fireplaces and original doors and floorboards. The current owners have sympathetically refurbished the house over the past few years to include a bespoke kitchen and contemporary family bathroom, along with improvements in insulation and décor.
Yarrow Villa is situated on the historic Main Street 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 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.
