Storied Gullane landmark converted to seaside apartments
July 5 2019
A seaside town in East Lothian has seen one of its most striking buildings given a new lease of life following its conversion by CALA Homes to form 21 apartments.
Formerly Gullane’s Marine Hotel the property was latterly in use as a training centre for Scottish Fire & Rescue in an eventful history that also included a spell as headquarters for the Polish Army during World War 2.
This history has been preserved through the retention of period features such as large bay windows while altering the interior layout to accommodate a mix of duplexes and main entrance flats.
Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director at CALA Homes (East), commented: “This is a truly special piece of local history and we’re delighted to say that the refurbishment of Henderson House is now complete.
“Its significance as a town landmark has been very important for us throughout the project– we wanted to restore and modernise without losing its charm and character.”
Surrounding grounds now play host to the Marine Rise housing development masterplanned by Barton Willmore.
