Five-bedroom house on market for £400,000 hides a very spectacular secret behind its walls

A FIVE-bed house on the market for £400,000 is hiding a wacky secret behind its walls in Northumberland.

The Grade II Listed pad looks fairly normal at first glance – but the bedrooms in the townhouse have been turned into unique ART installations.

The living room, kitchen and bathroom are modestly decorated and there are trendy, wooden floors throughout.

There is also a picturesque, walled garden behind the five-storey, terraced townhouse in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland.

But upstairs the artist owner Tod Hanson has created mesmerizing works of art in two of the bedrooms.

One has a series of overlapping, blue circles of different sizes across the walls, floor and ceiling.

The other quirky bedroom is covered in purple grids on all sides.

The house is on the market with estate agents Inigo and is being sold via Rightmove.

The property listing reads: “This magnificent Grade II-listed house lies in the historic centre of the coastal market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland.

“Unfolding over five storeys, the house extends to over 2,400 sq ft internally and contains four/five bedrooms.

“Principal glazing within overlooks a small green in front of the house, while a well-sized private courtyard garden lies to the side.

“The current custodian is artist Tod Hanson, who has transformed two of the rooms into truly extraordinary art installations, using the influence of the architecture to inform the optics of the works.”

Describing the two rooms, it continues: “A large room on the first floor runs the width of the building.


“Likely to have been the drawing-room in days past, this now forms the pinnacle of Tod’s installation.

“However, it could easily be returned to its original use as a drawing-room.

“It would work equally well as a main bedroom.

“The space retains its original fabric, including an elegant 18th-century fireplace with a cast iron, Victorian insert.

“A south-facing oculus window allows a dramatic shaft of light into the room, which moves with the seasons.”

The listing adds: “Ascending another level leads to two generously proportioned bedrooms.

“One of these contains another of Tod’s brilliant installations, focusing on a frame-grid motif that directly interacts with the structure of the room.

“Another 18th-century fireplace, also with a Victorian insert features; as with the other installation, the works undertaken do not impinge on the building’s original fabric.”

One local – called Time – said: “You absolutely must flick through the photographs.

“You won’t regret it.”
