Positioned on the village green with lovely outlooks to the front, this deceptive cottage is offered in truly immaculate, move in condition. The accommodation on offer is much larger than you may expect, with all rooms being of generous proportions and a well-planned and practical layout. The property has been renovated and upgraded over the years by the current vendor and its clear to see that the works have been carried out to the highest of standards with a great deal of love and attention - no stone has been left unturned. The presentation internally is a triumph, immaculately finished with a clean, crisp colour scheme and top quality fixtures and fittings. The external space has received a similar level of attention with the garden to the rear having been designed for ease of maintenance with the added bonus of a garage and parking beyond. All in all, this unassuming cottage is perfectly placed as a family home, as a downsize or for those looking for a Berwickshire bolthole as a 2nd/holiday home.
Swinton lies midway between the Berwickshire towns of Duns and Coldstream - a pretty and quintessential Border village with a full range of amenities and transport links, and ideally serviced by the main line rail station at Berwick Upon Tweed just 12 miles - making it a great balance of semi rural living while remaining well connected. Edinburgh and Newcastle are within an hour's drive and local amenities include a well regarded Primary School, Play Park, Garage, Hotel, Restaurant and Church, with the Berwickshire High Campus just a short drive. The area is surrounded by beautiful landscape - an ideal country location with opportunities for fishing on the Tweed, golf at Duns and The Hirsel at Coldstream and walking in the Cheviot and Lammermuir hills.

The recessed entrance porch gives way to a traditional vestibule with tiled flooring which in turn opens into the spacious and very welcoming reception hall which extends to all accommodation.
The layout is such that the living accommodation is nicely positioned to one end of the bungalow whilst the bedroom accommodation is at the far end.
The cosy lounge boasts a lovely homely feel yet offers great proportions with lots of natural light – an outlook over the village green to the front and patio doors with full height glazed side panels at the rear allow a direct connection to the garden. The quality, solid hard wood flooring extends from the hallway and the contemporary recessed electric coal effect fire creates a lovely focal point with an understated feature wall. Next door the kitchen is a great family space with plenty of room for every day dining. Again a window to the front overlooks the village green. Fitted with an excellent range of cream shaker style units with solid wood work surfaces and subtle tiled splash backs – integrated oven and hob plus fridge freezer.
Extending through the hallway towards the bedrooms, the shower room is centrally positioned- again having been refitted the shower room is tasteful and stylish with a quality white suite including a large corner shower cubicle as well as a wash hand basin with built in vanity storage below.
All three bedrooms are spacious doubles with private outlooks over the garden at the rear as well as built in wardrobe storage in each room. The hard wood flooring continues from the hallway into the bedrooms and, with the garden outlooks, all rooms enjoy a peaceful and restful ambience. The hallway leading to the bedroom boasts generous built in storage with one of the cupboards even having the option of housing a tumble drier if desired.
