Foodie Heaven for Buyers in North Berwick

Foodie Heaven for Buyers in North Berwick
North Berwick is gaining a reputation as a foodie paradise according to the latest report from a leading London broadsheet, tempting millennials away from the capital to its hip coffee bars and trendy bakeries.

The seaside town’s growing attractiveness to young buyers is no surprise to Sandy Casey, Director of Walker Group, which is behind the stylish Glen Ora development of homes in a picturesque setting just a short drive from the beach.

She said: “North Berwick has really changed in recent years thanks to a thriving arts scene with the annual Fringe By the Sea festival and trendy cafes and bars which have opened in the area.

“We are finding a lot of young people who previously would not have thought of moving out of the capital are attracted by the lifestyle on offer here – fantastic places to eat and meet up with friends, the golden sands and all the great water sports on offer like sailing, kayaking and rowing.”

Perfect for young buyers is the stylish detached Belmont three bedroom home from £315,000. Offering a flexible layout with an open plan kitchen and dining room with French doors opening out on to the garden and separate utility room, this house is ideal for young couples and families. At the front of the house is a lovely 16ft long light filled lounge. A downstairs cloakroom and an integrated garage complete the ground floor.

Upstairs each of the three bedrooms has built in wardrobes and the master bedroom has an ensuite. There is also a luxury contemporary family bathroom. With high quality finishes and fittings as standard, each property at Glen Ora includes a stylish and practical kitchen and bathroom, along with a high-efficiency heating system and appliances to help ease carbon footprint concerns.

The development is designed to be family friendly and 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's a pretty harbour and the Scottish Seabird Centre where visitors can learn more about the region’s wildlife. A great choice of sports is 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 5.00pm.
