Property: Three To View - The pick of the week's unusual properties

WHEN THE kerb is the harbour wall, you are guaranteed an exceptional view. Rock House, at St Abbs, near Berwick-upon-Tweed, is a four-bedroom traditional town house looking out over the North Sea. Modernised, it has a well proportioned sitting room with a solid fuel fire, large kitchen with fitted units and a Rayburn and a downstairs bathroom. There are two more rooms in the attic, with double-glazed windows. Outside the house is an enclosed courtyard which has three outhouses, having planning permission for conversion and a garage. pounds 120,000 through GA (01289 302828).

PEPPERBOX COTTAGE in Bramley, Surrey is so quirky, it's the kind of house people stop the car to get out and take photographs of. Thought to have been the game keeper's cottage belonging to the adjoining Whipley Manor Farm, the brick and stone Victorian cottage has roses around the door and distinctive gothic arched windows. The three-bedroom house has been extended carefully, to preserve its design and has an octagonal drawing room, dining room and conservatory. Offers over pounds 350,000 to Browns (01483 267070).

MILESTONE COTTAGE at Walbottle, near Newcastle upon Tyne, is small but perfectly formed. Not flash enough for the footballers and executives who push the prices up in this prosperous North East enclave, it has enormous charm for a buyer looking for a one-bedroom home with character. Standing in a small courtyard development, it has arched windows and mature walled gardens. There is a split-level, open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with wooden ceiling beams, varnished floorboards and views over the Tyne Valley. pounds 97,000 through GA (01661 825 494).
