A soul enhancing experience awaits; this holiday home is the definition of a true escape.
A destination within a destination, The Secret Garden is a magnificent mid-century modern conversion of a 200-year-old gardeners cottage created by the celebrated Scottish architect Sir James Dunbar-Nasmith. It is set within five acres of beautiful and historical walled gardens.
Since 1698 ten generations of the Dalyrmple family have lived in North Berwick and family portraits, heirlooms, busts and portraits within the home highlight the illustrious family provenance. A wonderful talking point for history buffs.
Also, this home is perfect for all the Golf enthusiasts. Located in the very heart of numerous world famous championship courses. Sitting on the coast, not only playing golf but admiring the breath-taking view of the Bass Rock.
A walk around the house itself is thrilling; each room has its own sense of identity and colour palette.
Exterior The location of the home provides easy access to the delightful and highly sought-after coastal town of North Berwick, with its trendy coffee shops, boutiques and quality restaurants and Edinburgh is less than an hour away.
Webelieve you may not even want to leave the estate as so many activities are to be conducted within the historic walls. Pack your tennis racquets as you will have your own court. Engage in family games of snooker or table tennis. Or if outdoor pursuits are on the agenda, then after a leisurely stroll round the walled gardens how about a game of croquet, 2 Hole Pitching Range or boules. Children will be entertained for hours and hours exploring the grounds and playing in their own enchanted secret garden.
If you love water sports, however, do pack your wetsuit and SUP as the beach is less than a mile away or just take your swimming costume if sunbathing and paddling is more the order of the day.
