Dan­dara brings lux­ury homes to idyl­lic North Ber­wick

Scottish Field - - EAST LOTHIAN HOMES -

ANEW com­mu­nity in sought-af­ter North Ber­wick by mul­ti­award-win­ning home­builder Dan­dara, of­fers the very best of life in the Loth­i­ans in beau­ti­ful fam­ily homes built to the high­est spec­i­fi­ca­tion. Renowned for set­ting the stan­dard for new build homes, Dan­dara’s first ma­jor de­vel­op­ment in Ed­in­burgh and the Loth­i­ans is Bar­ley Brae, at Tan­tallon Road, North Ber­wick. It fea­tures a range of lux­ury homes just mo­ments away from the sandy beaches, famed coastal golf cour­ses and all the lo­cal ameni­ties North Ber­wick has to of­fer – while be­ing within easy reach of Ed­in­burgh’s cos­mopoli­tan city cen­tre. Cre­at­ing com­fort­able, prac­ti­cal homes which are de­signed to meet home­own­ers’ needs for years to come, ev­ery Dan­dara prop­erty is fin­ished to ex­act­ing stan­dards. With the show home at Bar­ley Brae now open, Dan­dara’s sig­na­ture spec­i­fi­ca­tion can be seen in the care­fully con­sid­ered in­te­ri­ors fo­cussed around spa­cious, open-plan liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas, qual­ity kitchens with ap­pli­ances and sump­tu­ous bath­rooms and en suites. Ev­ery as­pect of these homes has been de­signed to de­liver the com­fort, qual­ity and style home­buy­ers can ex­pect from Dan­dara – which has won 47 awards for its de­vel­op­ments in Scot­land since 2007. The Cedar, a su­perb five-bed­room de­tached home, is newly on sale, and the heart of this home is de­signed around an open plan kitchen/ din­ing/sun room that pro­vides a light and spa­cious area to re­lax and en­ter­tain fam­ily and friends. Bi-fold doors lead out to the rear gar­den while dou­ble doors con­nect to a sep­a­rate lounge. There is also a study, util­ity room and a down­stairs W.C. Up­stairs has five gen­er­ous dou­ble bed­rooms, three of which have their own en suites. The mas­ter bed­room and sec­ond bed­room also in­clude fit­ted wardrobes. There is a con­tem­po­rary fam­ily bath­room off the land­ing, which in­cludes plenty of prac­ti­cal stor­age space. Bar­ley Brae is lo­cated just a short walk from the town cen­tre, sandy beaches and other leisure fa­cil­i­ties. The lo­cal play­group, nurs­ery, and pri­mary and high schools are also within a mile of the de­vel­op­ment. Fur­ther­more, North Ber­wick train sta­tion has a reg­u­lar ser­vice into the heart of Ed­in­burgh and the A1 mo­tor­way is just a few miles away. Peter Best, di­rec­tor of sales at Dan­dara in Scot­land, says: ‘Spa­cious fam­ily homes in such a de­sir­able lo­ca­tion are greatly sought-af­ter. De­liv­er­ing a high-qual­ity liv­ing space which is both close to the coun­try­side and of­fers easy ac­cess to the city lights of Ed­in­burgh is al­most unique and is some­thing that ap­peals to many fam­i­lies. ‘Bar­ley Brae is just a mile from the town’s har­bour, golf clubs and the his­toric Tan­tallon Cas­tle. The lo­cal schools are amongst the high­est rated in the area and within safe walk­ing dis­tance, which is great for pupils and par­ents.’ Ev­ery Dan­dara home fea­tures high lev­els of in­su­la­tion and qual­ity dou­ble glaz­ing that keeps the chill out and the warm in; and pho­to­voltaic pan­els of­fer ad­di­tional re­new­able en­ergy. En­ergy-ef­fi­cient kitchen ap­pli­ances and water sav­ing de­vices also help home­own­ers save money and the en­vi­ron­ment too. The su­perb Ger­man kitchens fea­ture stone work­tops and in­te­gral ap­pli­ances as stan­dard, whilst the stylish bath­rooms and en suites are de­signed with ef­fi­ciency and last­ing el­e­gance in mind. Ev­ery new home at Bar­ley Brae is in­de­pen­dently in­spected by the Na­tional House Build­ing Coun­cil and comes with a 10-year war­ranty for peace of mind.
