Rare Opportunity to Buy Seaside Bungalow
With only one in fifty new homes built in the UK last year a bungalow according to the NHBC, buyers will have to be quick to secure the final single storey home to be released at Glen Ora in North Berwick.
Priced at £382,000, the last three bedroom Chichester bungalow is the perfect family home with a welcoming 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.
The stylish kitchen comes complete with integrated appliances including dishwasher, double oven and fridge freezer and high specifications bathrooms. It also has a large garden with turf to the front and a timber fence to the rear.
Long cherished by the British public, the bungalow first became popular with ex-pats who returned from India and decided to build copies of the homes they had lived in while overseas.
However the number of bungalows built has fallen dramatically from one in six new homes in the 1980s to just 2% of homes finished in 2015 according to the NHBC’s latest statistics as land prices have made them increasingly expensive for developers to build.
Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “The reaction to the bungalows at Glen Ora has been fantastic, everybody loves them. A bungalow in a seaside town is many people’s dream and the Chichester is such a charming property, designed to fit in with the surroundings perfectly.
“Bungalows are great for people who want a low maintenance property and can be a nice stepping stone between an apartment and a two or three storey home. They are ideal for families with toddlers as there is no need to install stair gates.
“There is no need to compromise with our bungalows as they have all the extras that people have come to expect from a luxury home such as a utility room, an en-suite master bedroom and an integral garage.
“Should the buyer ever want to extend up into the roof to expand their living space the Chichester is designed to allow flexibility for the future with attic trusses incorporated.”
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.
