Harbour View occupies an elevated position overlooking a tidal harbour and its location affords a high degree of privacy. Burnmouth is a small coastal village with a working harbour, a shingle beach, public house and an active village hall. There are bus services connecting the village with Edinburgh, Eyemouth, Coldingham and St Abbs to the north and Berwick-upon-Tweed to the south. It is also listed as a site of special scientific interest for rock formations and offers wonderful birdwatching and a small seal colony just off shore.

For local amenities and shopping Eyemouth is three miles away and is the biggest town in Berwickshire as well as being a fishing port since the 13th Century. For education there are primary schools at Ayton, Coldingham, Eyemouth and Reston and a secondary school in Eyemouth. For private education Longridge Towers is nearby at Berwick-Upon-Tweed with additional schools in Edinburgh.

The property has excellent transport links with the A1 providing direct links north and south, whilst the mainline stations in Berwick-Upon-Tweed and Reston offer direct links to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London.

The property is ideally situated for those who enjoy the countryside. There are endless opportunities for walking, mountain biking, horse riding and exploring this part of the Scottish Borders with its attractive coastline and many other local amenities.


Harbour View is an end-of-terrace cottage, one of three dwellings of the former coastguard station. Its position affords wonderful sea views and views over the tidal harbour and coastline. Fishing boats still operate from this little harbour bringing in fresh crab and lobsters and locals and visitors alike enjoy the rock and shingle foreshore and walks along the coastal path. The current owners have ensured that the house has been well-maintained over the years both inside and out and this includes the windows and doors being replaced with Everest double glazing. All of the rooms have windows with sea views and the garden has several places in which to sit and relax and enjoy the scenery. The ground floor of the cottage has two doors that exit to the hard standing at the front overlooking the sea while the first floor has a rear door that leads onto a small patio area at a higher level at the back. 


At the front of the house is a vestibule with windows to the front and sides with a bench seat with storage beneath. The front door opens into the vestibule behind which is the hall with stairs rising to the first-floor landing. Off the hall is a study, that could be used as a third bedroom, another reception room or home office. Also off the hall is the sitting-dining room, a bright room with striking sea views from a large picture window and a dual aspect wood burning stove between the sitting room and kitchen. This room has access to an understairs cupboard providing plenty of storage. A door leads through to the kitchen-breakfast room, fitted with floor and wall-mounted units with countertops over. There is a free-standing electric oven with hob, a dishwasher and freestanding fridge-freezer. There is a larder cupboard with the electricity meters and plumbing for a washing machine. From the kitchen, another door leads to the front of the property. On the first floor landing there is a door leading outside to the rear of the cottage and two cupboards, one is a linen cupboard housing the hot water tank and the other is a large walk-in cupboard providing plenty of storage. There are two double bedrooms, both with walk-in cupboards and a bathroom, comprising a bath with an electric shower, WC and handbasin within a vanity unit. Completing the accommodation is a separate cloakroom with WC and handbasin and recessed storage.


The cottage sits on a generous plot with parking space on the hard standing at the front and also a workshop and a separate woodstore. There are also three small lockable stores at the rear of the property. The garden extends to the front, side and rear of the property and provides areas to sit on several levels. There are a wide variety of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees providing year-round colour and interest. The front hard standing is accessed by a shared private driveway from the main road.
