th_maltingsPier Maltings – where every detail counted….on this piece of local history

Massive timber roof beams, deep window-cills, cast iron colomns are all just part of what is on offer. Local landmarks of the two kiln towers will give two of the homes extra special features of 360 degree top-box glazing.

The Site

Once a whaling house, then a small maltings serving Berwick’s own brewery, before becoming a home for a sail maker and laterally a marquee hirer, this grade II listed building was given a new lease of life to make 13 townhouses.
Careful attention was given to meet the challenges of working within the guidelines of a building which was so important to British Industrial Archology and English Heritage as well as being within the catchment of an ancient monument.

Each house was carefully designed and work was carried out to make the most of with the original features it had to offer while at the same time meeting the needs of modern life.

Overlooking the estuary of The River tweed and to Bamburgh Castle and beyond, each house was designed to obtain a sea view. The massive timber roof beams, deep window cills, cast-iron columns were just part of what C&V were able to build into their design to make such stunning waterside homes.
