Showhome with a difference at Glen Ora

Showhome with a difference at Glen Ora

A  new showhome is being launched at Walker Group’s Glen Ora development in North Berwick this weekend (16-17 January), offering a fresh take on stylish living in the popular seaside town.

Styled by Kabe Design, the impressive Brampton mixes 1950s vibes with the latest in contemporary interiors to appeal to today’s hip, artistic home buyers. 

Launching at 11am on Saturday 16th of January, visitors on the day will have a chance to look round and enjoy drinks and snacks from local craft producers.
 
A five bedroom home, at the heart of the Brampton is the large open plan kitchen with dining area and family room, which has lots of bold retro touches such as SMEG appliances and copper pendant shades. 

The master bedroom also borrows from the vintage palette with a soft green and blush rose colourway, while the boy’s room features a nostalgic red, white and blue colour scheme. One of the stand-out rooms of the house is the study, which provides a perfect snapshot of a creative lifestyle with its reels of film, old cameras and photographic print.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “North Berwick was recently named one of the top ten coolest seaside towns in the UK and we wanted our showhome to reflect the energy and creativity of the area. The designers have created a wonderful home, with an eclectic mix of styles and lots of bespoke pieces of art work. I particularly love the use of dusky rose tones in the showhome, which experts are predicting will be one of the big colours for 2016.” 

Glen Ora features a collection of three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete, with prices in the current phase from £340,000 for the four bedroom Kidston house-type.  The Brampton starts from £390,000.

Located on the former Mains Farm, Glen Ora is surrounded by tranquil countryside and has beautiful views of the Firth of Forth, the Bass Rock and Fife beyond.

With high quality finishes and fittings as standard, each property includes stylish and practical kitchens and bathrooms, along with high-efficiency heating systems and appliances to help ease carbon footprint concerns.

Designed to be family friendly, the development will be beautifully landscaped and will feature bicycle paths for safer cycling. North Berwick’s popular primary school and highly regarded High School are a short walking distance from Glen Ora. 
                                                                                          
North Berwick is one of the jewels of East Lothian, with miles of unspoilt coastline, world class golf courses and main streets filled with a selection of trendy cafes, fine seafood restaurants and interesting art and craft shops. There is even an old-fashioned sweet shop and a coffee roastery. 

Along with the beautiful beaches, there is a pretty harbour and the Scottish Seabird Centre where visitors can learn more about the region’s wildlife. There is a great choice of sports available from rugby, tennis and bowls to sailing, surfing and horse riding, and of course golf with a number of courses to choose from.

Close to Glen Ora is the town’s public swimming pool, while spa facilities are available at the Macdonald Marine hotel. 

The new showhome will be open from Thursday to Monday from 11am to 5.30pm. For further information www.walkergroup.co.uk
