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.

Upon entering the property, the spacious, cosy lounge is situated to the right of the entrance hallway, overlooking the front garden and features a lovely multi-fuel stove. To the left of the hallway, the bright, open-plan dining kitchen benefits from a good range of modern, fitted units with room for slot in appliances as well as an integrated dishwasher whilst the dining area offers room for a large dining table; perfect for families and entertaining. The rear hallway is accessed from the kitchen with a useful under-stair storage cupboard as well as small utility room with fitted units and room for additional kitchen appliances. The newly fitted shower room is fresh and modern featuring a large walk in shower, wash basin with built in storage and WC, complete with surrounding tile effect wet wall panelling. Leading out to the rear garden, the rear porch/boot room provides a very useful and flexible space with further storage options and is currently used as a large space for family pets.
Carpeted stairs lead to the upper landing where three bedrooms are located. Bedrooms one and two are both double sized rooms overlooking the front of the property with bedroom one benefiting from a good range of built in storage options, whilst the third bedroom offers outlooks over the rear garden. The upper landing benefits from good levels of natural light, currently hosting built in storage cupboards and offers potential scope to utilise the space for other purposes including the addition of an upstairs bathroom which the current owners had looked into.
The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and fully enclosed with a small seating area directly at the rear door, perfect for al-fresco dining. A pathway leads around the back of the house to the side where there is a large area laid to lawn complete with surrounding shrubbery, a useful wood store and a plot with home grown vegetables. A small gate provides access to the upper garden which is split into different sections and would be ideal for a garden enthusiast. With a BBQ area for outdoor entertaining, areas laid to lawn, mature shrubbery, colourful flower beds and fruit trees, this garden really does have it all to offer.
Located at the foot of the garden is a single car garage with an adjoining conservatory, perfect for relaxing, as well as two good sized greenhouses. Access to the front of the garage is via the lane at the side of the property whilst pedestrian access is available from the garden.
At the front of the property, stairs lead up to the front door with low maintenance garden areas lying to either side.
