Time to Make A Move to Glen Ora

Time to Make A Move to Glen Ora
New research shows that over half of Brits (51%) are unhappy with their current property and long to move on to their forever home.

According to online estate agent Nested.com, while location, location, location is still important, the key factor when choosing a home is the size of the property, followed by the number of bedrooms.

Fortunately buyers can enjoy all three things at Walker Group’s Glen Ora in the beautiful coastal town of North Berwick. The developer has just released a selection of its larger homes – the four bedroom Gladstone at £435,000, the five bedroom Brampton from £435,000 and the four bedroom Dennington from £440,000, which offer the amount of floorspace and the kind of flexibility most people dream of.

The Gladstone is much admired for its showstopping 28ft long open plan kitchen, family room and lounge, ideal for busy family life and hosting get-togethers with friends. It also has a bright sunny lounge, a separate utility and downstairs cloakroom. A double garage completes the ground floor. Upstairs the master suite has a shower-room, there are a further three bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom.

The Brampton is also renowned for its superb dining kitchen featuring a beautiful bay window and family room. Along with a charming lounge, this property has a study or fifth bedroom, a utility and cloakroom on the ground floor. It also boasts a very useful detached double garage – ideal for families with multiple vehicles or those who want their own workshop, yoga studio or gym. Upstairs are four bedrooms, with the master featuring an ensuite and a contemporary family bathroom.

The impressive Dennington has a large contemporary open plan kitchen with dining area. To the front of the property is the impressive formal lounge and a family room, which could be used for a multitude of purposes – as a study for the kids or craft room or even an additional bedroom or formal dining room. Upstairs the master suite has a shower room and an enviable dressing room, there are three other bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Walker Group Director Sandy Casey said: “All of these new homes are perfect forever homes, as they allow a lot of flexibility to accommodate different uses, occasions and family members.

“Having large kitchens, lots of social space and storage really does future-proof your home and means you will never fall out of love with your property.

“Buying a forever home means thinking about not just what you need now but your future lifestyle too – will the property work when your babies turn into teenagers or when they bring their own children back to visit.”

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.
