‘Unique’ residential development plot marketed in North Berwick

ALLIED Surveyors Scotland has announced it has been appointed to sell the former Heugh Reservoir in North Berwick.

Offers over £450,000 are being sought for the property, which dates back to around 1905. The circular tank was previously a cold-water storage facility until it was decommissioned by Scottish Water in circa 2004.

The 9,686 sq ft building has an unusual dodecahedral-shaped B-listed roof. It is being sold with consent to develop a two storey, six-bedroom house.

“This is a truly unique residential development plot with unrivalled views over North Berwick’s famous coastline,” said Allied Surveyors’ director of commercial agency (east), Iain Mercer. “We anticipate keen interest from developers looking for a project with a significant ‘wow’ factor in one of Scotland’s most sought-after coastal towns.”

Planning consent was granted by East Lothian Council in April 2020.

In July, Allied Surveyors completed the sale of the former Macdonald Marine Hotel staff accommodation block, also in North Berwick, for in excess of the £1.353 million asking price.
