Heathery Tops Farm is positioned on the edge of Scremerston Village with a stunning countryside outlook and feel. It is accessed up a well maintained tarcamaded farm lane just off the A1167 and is set within a hamlet of about 16 other barn conversions and cottages.

Heathery Tops is within walking distance of Tweedmouth and is surrounded by some of England and Scotland most beautiful countryside. This means the property enjoys an abundance of dog walking or hiking opportunities straight from the front door. The world famous River Tweed is an easy stroll, as is the Northumberland Coastline that offers miles of unspoilt beaches, including the popular Cocklawburn Beach. The Northumberland Coastline is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (A.O.N.B) and has many historical places of interest, including Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island and the Farne Isles. This region offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity, whilst having great national links.

Tweedmouth is only a mile up the road from the property and offers an excellent range of local and national amenities including a Tesco’s supermarket, Mark and Spencer’s, Argos and Homebase. Tweedmouth also has reputable schooling for all ages, a fitness centre and a number of restaurants, pubs and take-aways.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is just over the River Tweed, about a mile and a half away from 3 The Barns and is England’s most northerly market town. This bustling town offers further amenities including local and national shops, three supermarkets and further schooling. Berwick also has a mainline train station, which is popular with daily commuters travelling to Edinburgh or Newcastle. London is also accessible by train in under 3.5 hours.

Heathery Tops Farm benefits from easy access to the A1.

Despite Heathery Top’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.




3 The Barns at Heathery Tops is an impressive 4/5 bedroom family home, converted approximately 10 years ago from a stone steading. The property offers spacious and well-presented accommodation throughout and benefits from ample parking and easy to maintain garden grounds. The property would make an excellent permanent or holiday home depending on requirements. 3 The Barns is double glazed throughout and heated by way of an oil-fired boiler.


The property is accessed through a porch, into a welcoming and spacious reception hallway which offers access to all the accommodation on the ground floor starting with an open plan kitchen/family room. The family room offers access outside to the front garden and benefits from a light and bright atmosphere. The fully fitted kitchen has been sensibly designed with a free standing Everhot range cooker as the focal point. There are a range of wall and base units, including a central island together with integrated appliances. The kitchen also offers access to the utility room which again has a good range of storage units and a back door to the rear patio and garden. Returning to the reception hallway the accommodation flows naturally from room to room. The sitting room which is situated at the end of the hallway is again beautifully presented, with a fireplace forming the focal point and offers French doors outside to the rear garden. The formal dining room which looks out over the front garden is currently being used as a snug/library and has a range of fitted bookshelves. This room is a generous size and like a lot of the accommodation on the ground floor, offers access outside to the front garden. A downstairs toilet completes the accommodation of the ground floor.


From the hallway on the ground floor there is an internal staircase which leads to the first floor landing. The landing offers double storage/wardrobe cupboard, an airing cupboard and a Velux window allows natural light to flood the first floor and entrance reception hall. At the far end is the master bedroom. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and a large walk in wardrobe which offers ample storage and hanging space. The wardrobe also offers access to the attic space which is floored and runs the whole length of the property. There are 3 further double bedrooms situated down the length of the landing, bedroom 2 also offers an en-suite shower room. A large family bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle supports bedrooms 3 and 4.



3 The Barns has a rear patio that runs the length of the house with a further area of garden raised up. The garden has recently been landscaped with newly planted hedging and shrubs and offers various sitting areas to enjoy al-fresco dining. Within the garden there is a well screened oil tank and a useful detached outbuilding, with electricity, offering excellent storage.
