Allied Surveyors Scotland has been appointed to sell the former Macdonald Marine Hotel’s staff accommodation building in North Berwick.

The 9,108 sq ft property occupies a half-acre site in Dirleton Avenue and is less than one mile from the town centre. It was previously known as the Golf Hotel until around 2006.

The firm has been retained by Chicago-based AJ Capital Partners who purchased the Marine Hotel & Spa from Macdonald Hotels last February.

Now the staff accommodation building, which consists of 18-bedrooms over four-storeys, is surplus to requirements and has been placed on the market at offers over £1.353 million.

“This is a prime development opportunity on the main road leading into one of Scotland’s most sought-after coastal towns,” commented Allied Surveyors’ director of commercial agency (east), Iain Mercer.

“We expect high levels of demand from residential developers in particular, but other uses may also be viable.”

AJ Capital Partners are currently undertaking a major refurbishment of the Marine Hotel & Spa on Cromwell Road and plan to reopen the iconic seaside venue later this year.
