Those dreaming of settling in Gullane can finally visit a new development and picture their futures in two newly-launched showhomes designed with a coastal influence.

Marine Rise, located in the popular coastal village of Gullane, is the latest East Lothian development by CALA Homes (East). Situated on the historic site of the village’s former Marine Hotel and later the Scottish Fire Rescue Service College, the recently-opened showhomes have been designed to highlight their spacious layout and warm interiors, with living space carefully designed for all the family.

Soft, pastel tones have been used to incorporate the properties’ tranquil setting along the coast. Tasked with creating the inspiring homes, Carol Yates of Carol Yates Design, said “The showhomes have been inspired by Gullane’s lovely location and all that goes with it, including a relaxed lifestyle by the coast with outdoor pursuits such as golf and coastal walks. 

The colour and pattern are very current – soft pastels and brights are the new neutrals along with blue tones. Both trends have been applied to the showhomes. The coastal influence is there too, with the use of blue hues and turquoise – a touch of the Hamptons comes to Gullane.

Two new apartment showhomes are also due to launch in late summer – one of which will be situated within the landmark Henderson House. Buyers will have Gullane’s award-winning beaches and championship golf courses of ‘Golf Coast Road’ on the doorstep. As well as a charming selection of shops and amenities along Gullane’s picturesque high street, the homes are within close reach of the seaside haven of North Berwick just three miles away.

The development itself also connects to the famous John Muir Way, providing walking routes around the county for families to enjoy and nature enthusiasts to take in East Lothian’s breathtaking scenery. Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director with CALA Homes (East), said “It is a real privilege to be able to offer homes in such a distinct and locally loved landmark. The incredible renovation – and the homes in the grounds around it – will offer something for all tastes. What is undeniable is that the location is incredible and we’re thrilled to have finally launched on site.

Homes start from £515,000 and apartments from £385,000 | visit
