Sea Change at Glen Ora

Sea Change at Glen Ora
It’s no surprise that North Berwick consistently ranks highly in polls of the UK’s most desirable seaside towns – not only does it have beautiful long, golden, sandy beaches, incredible scenery and wildlife but also a thriving cultural scene.

Walker Group has just released a stylish Canterbury Corner housetype which is the ideal place to celebrate the long summer days in this most desirable part of Scotland, with lots of room for entertaining and having friends to stay for a coastal mini-break.

Priced at £415,000, the Canterbury has a 23 ft long open plan kitchen and family room featuring stainless steel appliances, an integrated fridge freezer and oven, dishwasher, chrome worktop lighting all included in the price. A separate utility, welcoming reception hall and integral garage complete the ground floor.

The spa-like bathroom has an Ideal Standard contemporary cube bath and sanitaryware while the large master bedroom has its own ensuite and a swoon-worthy dressing room. There are a further three bedrooms.

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group said: “North Berwick has so much to offer househunters from the beaches and surrounding countryside to an amazing cultural scene as well with art galleries and the ever popular Fringe by the Sea festival in August which attracts renowned musicians, comedians and writers.

“One of the things I hear from our housebuyers time after time is how much they love the lifestyle on offer in North Berwick because there is so much to do from boat trips to horse-riding along the beach but none of the congestion and stress of living in the Capital.

“There is already a great community atmosphere in Glen Ora for example our residents are organising a street barbecue this month.”

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 a stylish and practical kitchen and bathroom, along with a high-efficiency heating system 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.
