Dandara brings luxury homes to idyllic North Berwick
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.
