Only a few family homes are now available for 2021 at Dandara’s Barley Brae development in the sought-after seaside town of North Berwick, East Lothian. 

Just one luxurious five-bedroom detached property remains for this year, along with two four-bedroom homes currently on the market, and a further small phase of spacious, detached family homes still to come.

The seaside development, within a rolling landscape of barley fields, has been carefully planned, with homes set around a park and play area in the middle, with green spaces, allotments and footpaths surrounding the edge, giving a sense of peaceful, country living. The wider area is also perfect for lovers of nature and the countryside, with the lovely sands of Milsey Bay Beach just a short walk away and Berwick Recreation Park on the doorstep.

The elegant, contemporary homes at Barley Brae are finished externally with attractive architectural detailing, including weatherboarding and timber porch supports, while internally they offer versatile and flexible family living with open plan or interconnecting lounge, dining and kitchen areas to cater for busy modern life. 

Photovoltaic panels on the roof provide renewable energy, making it easier to live a greener lifestyle, while high levels of insulation and double glazing ensure a comfortable, warm home whatever the weather.

Lisa Archibald, Head of Sales for Dandara East Scotland comments: “North Berwick is a highly sought-after seaside town and so we are not surprised to see our quality new homes here sell so quickly.  As well as a range of homes positioned in an attractive setting within the town itself, the development appeals to families thanks to excellent schools and access to the whole of East Lothian – not forgetting a train station with fast links into Edinburgh.”

She adds: “We expect the remaining family homes at Barley Brae to be popular – especially as East Lothian continues to see a post lockdown rise in population.”

Dandara prides itself on the quality of its finishes, and Barley Brae is no exception. The homes feature contemporary kitchens with integrated appliances and quartz worktops, while bathrooms come with quality white sanitaryware and a choice of wall tiles. Block paved driveways, paved paths, garden fences and landscaped front gardens ensure you will feel at home straight away.

The town centre of North Berwick is less than a mile away, with a good choice of shops, schools, healthcare and leisure facilities – including two primary schools and two major supermarkets within walking distance of the development. North Berwick station, just over a mile away, offers regular services into Edinburgh city centre taking just half an hour.

At weekends there are plenty of opportunities for leisure nearby, from exploring the many local beaches to playing a round of golf at one of North Berwick’s popular golf clubs. The Scottish Seabird Centre and two historic castles are within easy reach, there are boat rides from the historic harbour, independent shops, quirky tearooms and excellent fish and chips in North Berwick itself.

Prices at Barley Brae start from £574,995 for a four-bedroom home. The show home is open by appointment only, and online virtual visits are also available. For more information or to make an appointment call 01620 621803 or visit
