There are many truly great things about the seaside town of Greystones, from its position as a culinary hotspot to the many family pastimes to keep everybody active, from its well-known Cliff Walk to its hidden gems, and one thing most locals will agree on, is that the beaches are definitely one of them. If you own, or are looking to buy, one of the beautiful new houses at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones, the sun, sea and sand at these beaches in this perfect location are a great way to enjoy an active lifestyle.
There are two beaches in Greystones – the shingled North Beach beside the harbour, and the sand and stone South Beach at the southern end of the town. Greystones actually gets its name from the kilometre-long stretch of grey stones that separates the two.
Just as Greystones enjoys an easy commute to Dublin city centre and the surrounding areas via a great public transport system and road network, the South Beach is also very accessible by DART, but for those living at SeaGreen, it’s just a short walk from your front door to the sand and the water’s edge.
Awarded a Blue Flag, the half-mile long South Beach is lifeguarded during the warmer months, and also has an adjacent playground, completely refurbished and improved this year, for children who want to take a break from splashing around and swimming in the clean and clear water.
The Blue Flag means that dogs will not be allowed on the beach from June to the end of August, so you don’t have to worry about anybody stepping in something unpleasant while sunbathing or going for a paddle.
Even in the winter months, the South Beach proves popular, with many hardy souls taking to the water for a refreshing dip, such as during the annual Christmas swim.
One place many locals flock to is the little inlet known as Lady’s Cove that is situated between the two beaches. As well as the clean sand you can catch some rays from, it has great rocks to jump off and lots of opportunities for beachcombing to find interesting bits and bobs from the sea and creatures such as anemones at low tide, so your children will have a great time while you relax and enjoy the weather.
The North Beach at the harbour also provides locals with an array of water-based activities, with the sailing club, sea scouts and angling club all situated nearby. The recently modernised marina accommodates up to 250 boats and attracts sailing fans from all over the world, so even if you don’t fancy getting into the water, you can enjoy a great day on it.
Greystones sailing club offers dinghy and keelboat sailing courses for children and adults alike, so if you don’t yet know your rudder from your tiller, you can sign up and soon be able to take to the water right from the beach and check out the coast from a different vantage point.
Of course, one thing that makes both of these beaches truly stand out is the jaw-dropping setting. Looking out across the sea, you can take in the views of nearby Bray Head all the way across Dublin Bay to Howth, while behind you stands the beautiful Wicklow Mountains.
Dolphins have been known to come close to shore for a visit, and while you may not see any whales, on a very fine day you can actually make out Wales on the distant horizon.
After a perfect summer day on the beach, it’s great to know that you can walk the few minutes back into town to sate your appetite at one of the many great cafes, restaurants and pubs. From healthy food at The Happy Pear to crepes at Pierre Grise to pizza from the Delgany Inn, or even a cold treat from the Spendlove ice cream parlour, there’s a fantastic selection on offer to suit any tastes.
For owners of the new four-bedroom Wilde, the Beckett or the Yeats houses at the SeaGreen Gate development, it is also great to know that after a day on one of the two beaches, or both if you are feeling active, it is only a few minutes’ walk back to your new home, where you can enjoy the comfort these superb new builds offer. Whether you want to gather in the kitchen to share stories of your day, or plan to enjoy the penthouse feel within a family home the innovative design of the interiors provides, is up to you.
The beaches in Greystones are just another reason why this seaside location is such a great place to live, but however you decide to spend the sun-filled summer days here, it is always good to know that your new home is just a hop, skip and jump across the sand away.
If you would like to register your interest in one of the new houses at SeaGreen Gate, you can do so below:
A couple of decades ago, the design trend for kitchens was to make them as small and utilitarian as possible, often hidden from the dining and living spaces in houses. However, now we think differently. Modern life revolves around the kitchen, and it is now the centrepiece of the family home.
We strongly appreciate the importance of the kitchen in family life, which is why we build our houses for sale in Greystones to really showcase that living space where the family spends most of its time together, and focus on providing very detailed design considerations and features to make this room as spacious, useful, comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
The beautiful houses in the SeaGreen development situated in a perfect location by the sea in Greystones offer so much in the way of comfortable living, numerous outdoor activities for all the family, and easy commutes to Dublin city centre and the surrounding towns and facilities, but home is where the whole family returns to, and the kitchen is usually the first and last stop of the day.
It’s where the family gathers to cook, eat, talk about their plans for the day or what they got up to at work, at the nearby schools or out and about in the town, so it needs to be perfect. You can see how much of a focus we have put into the kitchen area of all our houses here, from our three-bed Portland (pictured below) to our four-bed Wyndham (second picture below) and Bellevue (main picture above) and five-bed Somerby houses.
We are currently working with our dedicated team on our exciting upcoming phase to make sure that the kitchen remains a priority when we turn these houses into perfect homes, and our upcoming show house features beautiful and elegant kitchen areas that make sure this is not just a space to cook in, but where the family can gather and enjoy the SeaGreen life.
Here, we offer a sneak preview blueprints of what we are planning for this upcoming phase, and we can’t wait to show it to you.
As you can see, ample room is provided in these kitchens to enable the whole family to gather, with the centre island providing room where everyone can sit, eat and chat away from the cooking area – a perfect accompaniment to the home’s separate dining area. The kitchen includes a top-quality oven and microwave and a beautifully designed preparation area, so that it becomes another living space within the home.
Finished with the highest quality fittings and features, these kitchens are, as with all SeaGreen homes, highly-energy-efficient, meaning your energy bills will be kept extremely low, and are sleek and beautifully designed to give a homely yet modern feel that will offer all you need to make this very important part of your home the perfect place to be.
Glass doors will lead out to the back garden so that on perfect days in Greystones you can open these and extend your living space, and allowing the sea air to bring a freshness to the home, just as you can with our high-spec balcony windows that give you that penthouse feel in your family home.
You can see the beautiful interiors we dedicate ourselves to creating in all of the houses at SeaGreen in the video below:
We’re excited to show prospective buyers the finalised kitchen design for our upcoming phase soon, so be sure to keep an eye on our social channels and register your interest here.
As summer has well and truly arrived and we enjoy the soaring temperatures, there’s no better place to be than Greystones. This perfect location offers an array of water-based activities to keep cool, as well as great scenic walks that help you enjoy an active lifestyle, not to mention the beautiful beaches and harbour area. But as a culinary hotspot, this thriving town also offers a variety of eateries with outdoor seating, where you can relax and socialise with friends and family, and get a tasty snack while you soak up the sun. Here’s a few of our favourite spots for homeowners who live a stone’s throw away at SeaGreen Gate.
The Happy Pear
The Happy Pear is one of the most well-known eateries in the town, made famous by the Flynn brothers Dave and Steve, who with a little help from their family, have developed what was a fruit and veg shop into one of Ireland’s best-loved health food eateries.
There are a few small tables out front at the Church Road café (they also have one at the Shoreline), but it is out the back where most sun-lovers venture to try the exotic and locally-grown fare. It’s great to sit out here and relax in the sun while tempting your taste buds with some sweet potato fritters, baked miso aubergine, vegan pies or refreshing salads and vegetarian soups. This is healthy food at its best, and is great to enjoy while soaking up the sun and enjoying the fresh air.
The Happy Pear also offers a guilt-free takeaway menu, so you can enjoy a healthy and delicious meal to bring home to your four-bedroom Wilde, the Beckett or the Yeats house at SeaGreen Gate.
The Beach House
Talking of Greystones institutions, for many people who stroll along the Cliff Walk, the first port of call once they arrive in Greystones is The Beach House, a lovely pub and restaurant right by the harbour. This family owned spot has been here since 1850 and continues to prove popular with locals and visitors.
There is an a la carte menu from Monday to Saturday, with food also served on Sundays, but one of the best things about this Greystones institution is the lovely outdoor seating area where you can dig into the tasty food while enjoying a refreshing drink and the beautifully sunny weather.
Sampling delicious plates of food under the sun brings to mind holidays in Spain, and tapas is the perfect snack for the summer.
At Las Tapas on Church Road, you can order from the long list of Spanish delicacies and specialities, from breads and olives to chicken with salsa to spicy meatballs, to paella and chorizo, there is something here to satisfy every taste, and while the interior is lovely, in the summer it’s great to sit outside and enjoy the sun while watching the world go by.
The Three Qs
Staying on the continent, The Three Qs offers breakfast brunch and evening menus cooked up by brothers Brian, Colin and Paul Quinn. With a Spanish, French and Italian leaning, this cosy and friendly little restaurant is considered one of the finest in Greystones, and you may have to move fast to secure one of the few tables outside.
Once you do though, the food is great, with the breakfast menu offering porridge, croque monsieur, French toast and croissants, and the evening menu including everything from Spanish fish stew with chorizo to lamb shanks to good old fish and chips.
Also on Church Road you can find Bochellis, an Italian restaurant with a number of outdoor tables. There’s a large menu of pizza and pasta dishes, as well as a few chef’s specialities that include fillet of beef wrapped in Italian ham, veal escalopes and chicken in red wine and tomato sauce, but when summer is here it is always a good idea to try a fresh fish dish.
From fresh mussels in chili, garlic and tomato sauce, to calamari rings to penne with prawns and mussels and fresh and smoked salmon in white wine sauce, there’s plenty here to give you that seaside feel as you bask in the sun.
The outdoor seating at the front of Tramyard Kitchen gets some really great sunshine during the summer, so it’s a great place to settle down and enjoy the heat while digging into a burger, pizza, fish dish or steak.
They also have a very long wine list to choose from, so you can while away the long summer days sampling a refreshing tipple while the sun shines down on you and your family or friends.
Everybody loves an ice cream when the sun is shining, and at Spendlove, they offer really great cold treats that will help you stay cool. They also have very good coffee and snacks, but what better way to enjoy the summer sun than to sit and take your time over a delicious ice cream at the outdoor seating area here on Trafalgar Square overlooking the new marina? Or maybe you would prefer to take your ice cream away and enjoy it as you stroll along the harbour?
The number and range of quality eateries with outdoor seating that let you enjoy the summer sun while you dine is just one more reason why Greystones is such a great place to live. All of these culinary delights are just a few minutes away from the development of beautiful new homes at SeaGreen Gate, so if you are one of the owners of these luxurious and family-friendly houses, you can enjoy that al fresco summer dining feeling within a short walk from your home.

Summer has well and truly arrived, and when the sun is shining, there is no better place to be than in the seaside town of Greystones. This perfect location situated between the mountains and the sea offers a great lifestyle for the whole family, and if you buy one of the beautiful new houses for sale at SeaGreen in Greystones, your children can avail of the many fun pursuits on offer throughout the warmer months, while you get to relax and enjoy your new home. Here’s just a few of the summer camps and activities your children can enjoy.
The Starcamp summer camp in Greystones provides the stars of tomorrow with the chance to get together and practice their performance skills in a fun and friendly setting. Taking place at St Patrick’s Centre & Hall from July 2-6 and July 23-27, these week-long camps aim to instil confidence and self-esteem in all boys and girls through praise and recognition in a non-competitive environment.
Boys and girls aged 4 to 12 of all levels can take part in creative performances, with advanced programmes for Starcamp Superstars aged 9 to 12, offering endless opportunities in the performing arena, with the emphasis squarely on building confidence and self-assurance to support conscientious and caring children.
For younger children (4 to 5 and 6 to 8), the programme includes singing Disney classics, dancing to chart favourites, acting scenes from popular films, fun team games, arts and crafts, a song and dance showcase and fun interactive games.
Children aged 9 to 12 can enjoy an introduction to pop singing, hip-hop dance and choreography, acting, script writing and directing, improv, audition technique and fun life skills improvement, and can also show off their talents at the week-ending showcase.
Running since 2007, Starcamps have a proven track record and outstanding reputation amongst performing professionals, principals, teachers, parents, and most importantly of all, the children who take part.
It’s a great way to inspire confidence in your children, and help your budding young star make new friends in a fun setting.
Children can get active at the fantastic week-long summer camps at Shoreline Leisure Centre in Greystones in July and August. Filled with great activities including swimming, football, basketball, table tennis, trampoline, golf, frisbee, rounders, rock wall climbing, relay races, dodgeball, volleyball, crafts and special events, and a whole lot more, young people can stay healthy while making loads of new friends and having a fun-filled summer.
All summer camp coordinators are trained in first aid, so you can be secure in the knowledge that your children will be safe and sound as they have the time of their lives.
A stepping stone summer camp is also available for younger children aged 3 to 5, with activities including fun relays, parachute games, long jump, javelin, scooter fun, bean bag games, skipping, gymnastics and arts and crafts.
If your children are inspired by the French Open and Wimbledon to pick up a racket, Greystones Tennis Club has week-long summer camps for 5 to 12-year-olds to introduce them to the game or to sharpen their skills on the way to becoming the next Serena Williams or Andy Murray.
The camps for members and non-members run throughout July and August, with 10% discounts for a second child from the same family who wants to take part.
Children who love to get out and about in the great outdoors will find Greystones to be the perfect place, and the Forest Club Summer Camp will help them get to know the flora and fauna of the area while also expressing their creative side.
These nature and craft adventures taking place on 45 acres of privately-owned woodland just on the outskirts of Greystones provide children aged 6 to 12 with an introduction to arts, crafts and living in harmony with nature.
The Monday to Thursday camps take place in July and August and include all materials for arts, crafts and bushcraft, as well as a hot drink and marshmallows for toasting around the campfire.
Also for art lovers, the Me And The Moon workshops are a multi-disciplinary art camp covering clay, mixed media collages, print and illustration. The workshops are process-driven to focus on the development of a child’s imagination, creativity and confidence, allowing for lots of fun play, experimentation and what the organisers call ‘happy accidents’.
Aimed at children aged 4 to 10, the workshops run from 10am to 2pm each day from August 13 to 15, and there is a 10% discount for second and subsequent children who want to join their siblings in diving into the world of art.
There are so many activities for your children to enjoy in Greystones, but in summer the town really comes to life with sport, art, performance and activity-based fun to keep kids occupied. If you buy a new home at SeaGreen in Greystones, you are perfectly situated to enjoy everything the town has to offer. With the children fully occupied, you can take time to yourself to enjoy the culinary hotspots or the beautiful surroundings, or even just relax in your comfortable and luxurious new home, knowing that your children are having a great time and will return home tired but happy, and eager to get straight back out to join their friends and enjoy the next beautiful summer day.

We have been very excited about the launch of our latest phase of development at SeaGreen Gate, with our show homes opened last weekend to reveal the beautiful interiors of our new houses in Greystones. The show homes will also be open for viewing this Bank Holiday Weekend, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May, from 2pm to 4pm. But while we are delighted to show just what you can expect from the Wilde, the Yeats and the Beckett four-bedroom houses in this great development, we are just as excited about the changes the warmer weather is bringing to Greystones, and the stunning scenery and enviable lifestyle that makes this thriving seaside town the perfect location to buy a new home.

For those who enjoy the great outdoors and all that this seaside location has to offer, you need look no further than the famous Cliff Walk between Greystones and Bray. This picture-perfect walk, with its array of wildlife and flora, really comes into its own as the sun begins to shine, with flowers in bloom as far as the eye can see, creating a beautiful landscape like a sea of gold in which to take a leisurely stroll and enjoy an active lifestyle, as this recent blog from Greystones Guide reveals.
Even at the seafront, where you can now enjoy a number of water-based activities, you can’t help but notice the sea of yellow flowers erupting into bloom, and probably won’t be able to resist embarking on the cliff walk to get a closer look and wander through this beautiful vista.
Picture via The Greystones Guide
This 7km walk from Greystones to Bray Head (pictured below) has a well-maintained path from start to finish that offers amazing views, no matter where you look. The surrounding coast opens out to one side, with the chance to watch seabirds, porpoises, dolphins and basking sharks in the sea below, while on the other, the majestic flora dazzles anybody who takes to this route for fresh air, exercise, or just to wonder at the beauty of this part of the world.
It’s no surprise that once arriving in Bray, even though the DART line makes the return commute so easy, many people decide to turn around and make the journey back to Greystones by foot, just so they can take it all in again.
While the trek along this pathway is a feast for the senses, it can be hungry work, so it is just as well that another major attraction to living in Greystones is that the town has become a real foodie haven, and can provide a literal feast for anybody who wants to drop in and enjoy a well-deserved treat for the tastebuds too.
Probably the most famous eatery in Greystones is The Happy Pear, which, though popular all year round, can’t be beaten once the sun begins to shine and crowds gather to sit outside and enjoy a tasty meal and a perfect summer day, whether that’s on the path to the front of the establishment, or in the back yard behind it.
The family-run establishment focusing on local produce and natural foods, wholefood café and evening restaurant offers a great dining experience, and really adds to the summer feel of the town. It’s no wonder it is known locally as ‘the happiest place on Earth’.
Tucking into one of the many super-healthy, super-tasty dishes the café offers, while the sun shines down, it’s easy to see why locals and visitors alike soon begin to glow with the same vibrancy you see in the surrounding landscape.
Summer is a real celebration at The Happy Pear, with founding twin brothers Dave and Steve Flynn eager to bring the fresh produce the season brings to their menus. An article in The Irish Examiner saw them extol the virtues of summer living in Greystones and the surrounding area.
‘There is plenty of ripe fruit, the weather is warm, everyone wants to eat healthy and be outside, and everyone is more extroverted,’ Steve says.
‘Strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb are all in season and even Irish cherries, these all excite us, plus there’s the opportunity to go have more picnics and more outdoor dining, which we really adore.’
That enthusiasm spreads quickly as the sun shines and the weather gets warmer in Greystones, and the atmosphere of easy, fun living is infectious, making it a truly magical place to call home.
Because of the amazing scenery that really comes into its own as summer rolls around, and the fantastic amenities and special places to sit, relax and enjoy a good meal or a refreshing drink, Greystones is a really special place to visit, but it’s an even better place to call home.
That is one of the reasons why the development of new houses at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones is proving so popular. Not only are these homes designed to meet every modern need and convenience, with the highest quality fixtures and fittings throughout, but they are perfectly located overlooking the town and the coast, and are just a stone’s throw from the sea and all the great facilities your family can enjoy close by.
As the pictures above show, Greystones really does come alive in the summertime, and if you choose to buy a new home in the beautiful SeaGreen development, you will quickly find out how easy the living can be.

The cold and dark evenings are hopefully on their way out soon, and we can begin to look forward to the type of weather that makes Greystones a perfect place to live. Situated on the coast just outside Dublin, this thriving town offers a number of great outdoor activities for all the family, as well as a few hidden gems, and if you buy one of the beautiful new houses at SeaGreen, you can answer the call of the sea and enjoy a range of water-based pursuits practically on your doorstep.
While the houses at SeaGreen all offer high-spec fixtures, features and fittings, one other major benefit of this development is its proximity to the coast, and the many activities it provides to make sure you and your family enjoy a great lifestyle.
Here are just a few marine highlights of this great seaside location:
Greystones Harbour Marina
Recently modernised, Greystones marina lies at the centre of the town’s beautiful harbour, and is a great place to indulge in your love of the water.
Accommodating up to 250 boats and attracting sailing enthusiasts from all over Ireland, the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, and even the US, the marina provides full boatyard facilities, including storage, hoisting, water and shore power, fuelling, and toilet and shower facilities. There is also free WiFi and local maps and guides, so even if you are not planning to head out on the water, it’s a great place to kick back and relax, or plan a day out inland.
On either side of the harbour lies a beautiful Blue Flag beach that provides a great chance to enjoy a bit of sun, sea and sand. In the summer months, these beaches prove very popular with locals and visitors alike, with the nearby railway line offering easy access from Dublin and the surrounding towns, but locals are also known to enjoy the water here all year round, as the annual Christmas swim shows.
What makes these beaches truly stand out is the amazing setting, with stunning views across Bray Head and Dublin Bay to the north, and the majestic backdrop of the Sugarloaf and Wicklow Mountains to the west. On a clear day, you can even make out the west coast of Wales on the horizon across the Irish Sea.
Greystones Sailing Club
Celebrating its 50th birthday this year, Greystones Sailing Club is one of the best dinghy sailing clubs in Ireland. The 350 member-strong organisation offers dinghy and keelboat sailing courses for a range of junior and adult classes and abilities, so whether you are an experienced racer or an absolute beginner, there is a course for you here.
The club has an active training and sailing programme providing instruction for 100 children and 30 adults every year, with ongoing training for other members, and runs a beginner’s course for Transition Year students at one of the excellent local schools – the nearby St David’s Secondary School. It also provides courses for First Aid, powerboats and sailing instructors.
Greystones Ridge Angling Club
Having formed almost 60 years ago, the Greystones Ridge Angling Club now has a brand-new clubhouse befitting the organisation’s appeal to the local community. With new members always welcome, they plan to make the club a centre of excellence for sea angling, and plan angling courses for people of all ages.
Based in the harbour marina, the Greystones Harbour Sea Scouts provides children and young adults with a great way to stay active, have fun and make friends. With a full marine activities programme including canoes and dinghies incorporated into the normal land-based scouting activities, members can enjoy a good cross-section of outdoor pursuits. During the winter months, theory practice is taught, before summer sees the Scouts take to the water, fully prepared and ready to put their lessons into practice.
From the age of six, children can join the Beavers, then move on to the Cubs at eight, before joining the Sea Scouts at 11, then moving up to the Venture section at 15, then the Rovers at 18, with the possibility of taking on a leadership role, so no matter what age your children are, they will find fun and friendship here.
The Cliff Walk
If you love the sea but prefer to look at it from the comfort of dry land, the Cliff Walk between Greystones and Bray is the perfect place to take in the scenery and get some exercise. The 7km walk along a well-maintained path offers great views of the surrounding coast, with the final stop at Bray Head well worth all the effort.
As well as the beautiful flora and many seabirds, porpoises, dolphins and basking sharks can sometimes be spotted by the keen-eyed walker.
If you don’t fancy retracing your steps back to Greystones, you can always take the 15-minute Dart ride from Bray station.
Greystones offers so many marine-based activities that you and your family will be able to enjoy a great lifestyle, and if you buy one of the homes at SeaGreen, you will be able to easily access all of these and experience all this town has to offer, before returning to the comfort of your beautiful home in this great development.

At Wood Group homes, we’ve always known that Greystones is the perfect place to live, and now it’s official! The Royal Town Planning Institute’s (RTPI) independent panel of judges have announced their shortlist of ten great places to live in Ireland, and Greystones is one of them, which makes the launch of our latest phase of development at SeaGreen Gate even more exciting.
Out of 95 towns nominated across the country, Greystones has been selected as one of the best by the RTPI, a professional body for town planners in Ireland and the UK, whose competition celebrates some of the most attractive and inspiring places in our country.
Chair of the RTPI Ireland, Marion Chambers, said the finalists are all ‘places clearly loved by the public, that have been protected, carefully planned or improved by the planning system.’
That’s not to mention our many high-quality schools, the transport network that makes the commute so easy, and the number of amenities and activities for all the family that Greystones provides, which help to inspire an artistic and creative community.
Homeowners at the beautiful, top-quality new Wilde, the Beckett and the Yeats houses at SeaGreen in Greystones enjoy all that the town has to offer, and with the upcoming launch of our latest phase of development at SeaGreen Gate, you can join them.

We recently released new videos giving a roaming view of the living spaces and kitchen/dining area in the beautiful new houses at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones, and here, we want to share some more details about these great family-friendly spaces in this perfect location.
Having spoken about the convenient and elegant bathrooms in the four-bedroom Yeats, the Wilde and the Beckett homes at SeaGreen Gate, and the jewel in the crown that is the top floor bedroom in these wonderful new homes, we are just as excited to talk about the area in which you and your family will spend most of your time.
Off the kitchen there is a space that can be used as a play area for children, or as an overflow entertainment area when you want to have guests over. It has great French doors that open out onto the patio, so you can entertain inside or outside, and it creates a great flow through the house that allows you to enjoy those perfect summer days in Greystones.
There’s a separate sitting room, which has ample space for the whole family to watch TV, talk about their days. and simply relax and congregate together. Everything we do at the SeaGreen houses is family-friendly, because it is a place designed for families.
The bay windows in the living room provide not just great views, but also a huge amount of natural light, with the comfortable but elegant design and layout adding to that spacious feel.
As with all of the new developments at SeaGreen Gate, we have designed these builds in such a way that we provide the platform upon which you and your family can personalise your surroundings, and really turn your house into a home. As interior designer Eily Roe explains in the video below, the interiors are decorated in a very neutral palette with contemporary design, but if a purchaser wants to really make it their own, they can do just that.
Kitchen and Dining
The family-friendly feel extends to the kitchen, with Eily Roe tasked with making this part of the house as amenable as possible to family members of all ages.
‘I chose to put in a very simple canvas so that purchasers can make their own decisions about how they want it to look,’ Eily explains. ‘It’s a simple and straightforward design, but very classic, and will stand the test of time.’
The soft white doors and the finish in the kitchen area offer a diffused palette that gives your family the freedom to personalise the space to meet their needs.
That space is enhanced by the fact that the separate utility room enables you to keep the kitchen, dining area and breakfast bar clear and uncluttered, providing a spacious area in which you can prepare and share meals with your family, or socialise with friends. If you want to get away from it all for a short while, or take a brief step back from family life, the adorable reading nook offers you an oasis of calm.
The custom-fitted kitchen and dining space has everything a family could want. It has a huge amount of worktop space, high-tech appliances including electric hob, cooker, telescopic extractor fan, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave, plus very cool LED lighting, with great storage and workspaces, but everything is kept clear by the sleek handle-less design.
There is ample space for entertaining, a breakfast bar, a dining table with room for six or more people, and also a really nice seating area.
Somebody can be at the dining table, somebody can be at the breakfast bar, somebody can be cooking, somebody else can be in the living area – lots of people do different things in the same space, because that’s what families are about, and we make it possible for every family member to enjoy this area in comfort.
Here’s another chance to watch the video of the great kitchen and dining areas in the new SeaGreen Gate homes:
In order to be able to call a new house a home, the entire family needs to be able to feel comfortable and have the space in which to pursue their interests and share time together. At SeaGreen Gate, our houses are designed to give you that space and comfort, and when you see these videos, we are sure you will agree.
