Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside
The Guardian Picks Dunbar as One of the Top 10 UK Property Hotspots
At Robertson, we pride ourselves on building new homes in some of the most sought-after locations in Scotland.
None more so than Dunbar in East Lothian.
Known locally as ‘Sunny Dunny’ due to its exceptionally sunny microclimate, Dunbar has just been named in the top 10 property hotspots in the UK by The Guardian newspaper.
Impressed by its busy working harbour and rugged coastline which acts as a magnet for surfers and rock poolers, it is Dunbar’s proximity to Edinburgh which puts the icing on the cake.
Commuters fed up with the higher price of a property in the Capital can live in Dunbar and still be in the city in around 20 minutes.
And with more people spending some of the working weeks from home, now is the perfect time to choose an alternative to city living.
Karen Mercer, sales manager for Robertson Homes says: “The Guardian scoured the whole of the UK looking for towns which would be ideal for those looking to exit city life.
“It found Dunbar has the perfect mix of sensibly priced property, excellent commuter links – even Newcastle can be reached in just 70 minutes by train – and stunning coastline to enjoy the great outdoors.
“Now Dunbar is being recognised on a national level there are likely long-term financial benefits to buying a new home in the town where demand is set to strengthen even further.
“And of course, life always seems better in the sunshine, and there’s lots of that in Dunbar!”
Robertson Homes currently has a range of 3, 4 and 5-bedroom homes for sale at Fair Acres in Dunbar with prices starting from £275,000.
