Swallow’s Nest enjoys a fantastic location with views over the Nature Reserve at Hoselaw Loch to the Cheviots. A detached property completely renovated by the present owners to provide a bespoke country hideaway within a short drive of Kelso and with panoramic views over the Cheviots and the Tweed Valley.

A tiled entrance vestibule with glass panels and door makes the most of the outlooks over the Loch and leads through to a panelled inner door opening to an open-plan traditional dining and living space complete with exposed ceiling and limestone tiled floor (as used in St Giles Cathedral) and deep sill recessed windows. This also includes that all important country cottage range cooker which provides comfortable winter warmth as well as central heating and hot water. The range is set within a red brick arched recess matching the brick surround units and mirrored on the gallery wall opposite with a recessed open fire with log grate and arched surround. An attractive winding staircase leads to a cleverly conceived “cot loft” bedroom over with open gallery landing providing a good sense of space and a luxury en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath at the far end. An arch leads off the main room to a lovely dayroom lounge with a bank of full height windows on the southern side taking advantage of light and views and an open beamed oak ceiling providing height with recessed multi-fuel stove at the far end. Double French doors open to the stone patio and the outside space with covered spa bath to enjoy the starry dark sky nights over the Cheviots. Beyond the main living room there is a usefully located utility including the summer kitchen with gas hob set within tiled worktops with further outside door to rear. Stairs off lead to a further ensuite bedroom with a contemporary shower room and feature arch to Juliet balcony with stunning outlooks. A large attached garage to the side with double doors to front offers development potential.

The garden includes an attractive paved patio of the sun lounge, spa bath set within a shelter and low maintenance Japanese style garden with stone water feature, detached garage with parking and adjoining office/gym.
