Prestige property: The Manor House is an assured fine family home

The Manor House in Belhaven, Dunbar, is a distinctive dwelling with dramatic coastal views, and is thought to have been transformed into an impressive home with tower for a highly regarded lawyer during the 19th Century.

While it reputedly dates to the 1740s, according to selling agents Savills, Sonja Baker’s 2009 book, The Country Houses, Castles and Mansions of East Lothian, claims the four-storey structure, as it stands today, was constructed as a home for Caithness native George L Sinclair, a Writer to the Signet, who lived in Dunbar between 1854 and 1874.

The grounds once extended to more than five acres, with a farm and cottages, but now consist of a generous south-facing rear garden enclosed by a stone wall for added privacy.
