Stay Warm and Snug at Glen Ora

Stay Warm and Snug at Glen Ora
It’s every householder’s worst nightmare, the boiler breaking down in the winter months when the weather is at its most unpredictable. And with the cost of maintaining a home at its highest (1.55%) in six years according to research from estate agent Emoov, older properties can be a huge drain on finances.

At Walker Group’s Glen Ora, buyers can enjoy all the benefits of a traditional property such as large rooms and picture windows but with low running costs associated with the latest high efficiency heating and lighting systems and contemporary kitchens and bathrooms.

And where better to buy a new home than the seaside town of North Berwick which was given the top spot in Scotland in The Sunday Times Best Place to Live survey.

Currently available at the popular development are the four bedroom Canterbury and Canterbury Corner housetypes.

Each stylish property comes with a large master bedroom with its own ensuite and a swoon-worthy dressing room. These generously proportioned homes have a large lounge and show-stopping kitchen with family room, perfect for entertaining friends.

A separate utility, welcoming reception hall and integral garage complete the ground floor. Upstairs there are a further three bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom.

The Canterbury is priced from £395,000 while the Canterbury Corner costs from £400,000.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “There can come a point with a traditional property when everything seems to go wrong at once and the bills just keep on coming. A love affair with heritage cornicing and open fireplaces can quickly go sour when faced with a constantly leaking roof and temperamental plumbing.

“All of new homes have state of the art bathrooms and kitchens which are covered by an NHBC 10-year guarantee.”

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 artisan bakery.

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. Buyers can see the high standard of property on offer at Glen Ora by visiting the stylish Brampton showhome which is open from Thursday to Monday from 11am to 5.30pm.
