The Bungalow is Back at North Berwick

The Bungalow is Back at North Berwick
Walker Group is bucking the trend by bringing back one of the UK’s all-time favourite house types – the traditional bungalow.

Just released for reservation at Glen Ora in the charming seaside town of
North Berwick are four three bedroom single storey homes, with prices from £380,000.   Designed specifically for the development, the Chichester is an attractive family home with an impressive entrance hall, spacious lounge to the front of the property, a master featuring an ensuite and a large open plan kitchen/family and dining room. A separate utility room and garage complete the property.   

Bungalows have long been cherished by the British public and first became popular with ex-pats who returned from
India and decided to build copies of the homes they had lived in while overseas. The word ‘bungalow’ itself comes from an Indian word for a modest hut.   However there is nothing modest about the Chichester, which features a stylish and practical kitchen with integrated appliances including dishwasher, double oven and fridge freezer and high specifications bathrooms. Each property has high–efficiency heating systems and appliances to help ease carbon footprint concerns.   They also come with large gardens with turf to the front and a timber fence to the rear. 

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “We are so excited to be building bungalows again – a bungalow in a seaside town sea is many people’s dream and we hope buyers love the designs as much as we do.
  “Bungalows are great for people who are downsizing and want an easy to maintain property all on one level, so no lugging vacuum cleaners up stairs. They are also great for families with toddlers as there is no need to install stair gates.   “Unusually perhaps we have included all the extras that people have come to expect from a luxury home and which you don’t often get with a bungalow – such as a utility room, an en-suite master bedroom and an integral garage.   “We are also building them with trusses in the attic so that homeowners can add loft extensions later on if they so wish.”   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.  

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.   Reservations will be taken from Walker Group’s temporary sales office which is open from 11am to 5.30pm.  For further information www.walkergroup.co.uk
