King's Cairn is an exclusive new residential development within the renowned Archerfield Estate, in the beautiful coastal countryside of East Lothian, between Gullane and Dirleton. Lying just east of the famous Muirfield Links, and nearby Gullane, Luffness and North Berwick golf courses, the Estate has its own rich golfing history, with the first game taking place here in 1868, and an 18 hole course created in 1910. There are now three prestigious golf courses within Archerfield Estate: Fidra Links, Dirleton Links, of which King's Cairn is located just to the north of, and The Renaissance Club. The amenities are further augmented by The Walled Garden farm and gift shop, restaurant and microbrewery, award-winning Fletcher's Cottage Spa with adjacent gym, golf academy building and welcoming clubhouse.

Complementing the varied choice of golf courses, the area, one of natural scenic beauty, offers beautiful sandy beaches, including Yellowcraig - one of East Lothian's finest; bird sanctuaries and historic buildings to explore. The stunning coastline on which King's Cairn is situated boasts uninterrupted views of the sea and Fidra island, with Fife and the Isle of May and Bass Rock on the horizon. The Castle Inn in Dirleton and other eateries are within walking distance. The National Museum of Flight is situated at East Fortune Airfield and is a well renowned tourist attraction. The nearby village of Gullane has a lively mix of shops, restaurants and hotels, including a Co-op, a general store, an excellent butcher, a superb German bakery, a delicatessen, a library, a Post Office and the acclaimed restaurants of La Potinière and the Chez Roux restaurant at Greywalls.

The larger town of North Berwick provides a wider range of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and leisure activities. There are excellent primary schools in Gullane and Dirleton, with secondary schooling at North Berwick High School: one of the highest ranking state schools in the Edinburgh and East Lothian region. The private schools of Edinburgh are also within easy reach, while Belhaven Hill preparatory school in Dunbar, Compass School (prep) in Haddington and Loretto School in Musselburgh are only 14 and 12 miles away respectively. King's Cairn is conveniently directly on the Loretto and Compass school bus pick-up route. For commuters there is a fast and efficient train service to Edinburgh from North Berwick (4 miles) or Drem (3.3 miles) and the airport and motorway links are easily accessible via the A1 and the Edinburgh City Bypass.

Description

The King's Cairn development presents a unique opportunity to create a truly bespoke property, set in a series of stunning coastal and golf view plots ranging from around 0.5 of an acre to over 1 acre. King's Cairn is a new addition to the existing estate.

The current show home, a version of The Shed, on plot 39, provides a glimpse into the exciting potential of a property in this beautiful location, and provides fantastic inspiration for other property designs. The spacious rooms all maximise the breathtaking sea views, with large windows overlooking the beach, and offer a luxurious level of accommodation.

There is complete creative freedom in designing a house style. King's Cairn offers an architectural service, and can also accommodate plans designed by third parties and individuals. Alternatively indicative house styles are available to choose from should you wish, which serve to provide inspiration, along with your entirely bespoke options.

Phase One of King's Cairn covers 16 plots, with six currently sold. Of the remaining plots, highly desirable properties have already been built on plots 39, 40 and 44. Construction on plot 35 is nearing completion, and work will begin on both plot 32 and plot 34 within the year.
The new house on plot 44 is currently under offer.
