Summer Means Sun, Sand and Sea When You Buy a new Home at SeaGreen in Greystones

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.

greystones-beach-seagreen-gate-houses-for-sale-south-beach-summer

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.

beaches-in-greystones-north-south-beach-when-you-buy-a-new-home-at-seagreen-gate-greystones

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.

Greystones-Blue-Flag-Beach-near-seagreen-gate-new-houses-for-sale

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.

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.

Living Spaces

One of the great advantages of the  new SeaGreen Gate houses is that they have two separate living areas in which the entire family can relax and plan the  many activities they can enjoy in this seaside town, whether on land or  at sea.

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.

seagreen_gate_new_houses_for_sale_in_greystones_gateway_to_a_new_life_beautiful_interiors_fitting_design

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.

seagreen_gate_houses_for_sale_greystones_spacious_comfortable_family_friendly_living

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.

seagreen_gate_new_houses_for_sale_greystones_interiors_beautiful_design_excellent_fittings

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.

Seagreen Greystones

Greystones – Ireland’s newest premier foodie town

When you’re thinking of moving to a new area, it’s important to consider not just the home you will own, but the area you will live in. What type of lifestyle can you expect to enjoy in your new surrounds? Where will you spend quality time together as a couple, or with friends? What time of entertainment and dining options are available to you?

Originally a small fishing village, Greystones is now one of Leinster’s most thriving coastal towns and offers a wonderful seaside lifestyle, a mere 45 minutes from Dublin city centre.

Alongside boutique shopping, international standard sports clubs, scenic walks and beach activities, Greystones is also fast becoming a contender as one of Ireland’s premier foodie towns.

Surrounding the harbour front and Main Street, the restaurants of Greystones enjoy a reputation for serving delicious, top quality food with a great atmosphere. Chefs are fortunate to have the highest quality ingredients available from several local producers, all within the ‘Garden of Ireland’.

We have compiled a list of some of the most celebrated restaurants in the area below, for you to try.

The Happy Pear

The owners, three local Greystones brothers, have endeavoured to offer carefully prepared food using the best quality and local ingredients. They also have a strong belief in making menu items from scratch where possible, including their jam, ketchup, mayonnaise, stocks, sauces and breads. A brunch favourite for locals, the creamed porridge made with Baileys and toasted almonds is a must-try.

The Three Qs

Chakra by Japiur

T: 012017222

Chakra by Jaipur is a cut above the rest when it comes to Indian cuisine, and certainly one of the most popular restaurants in Greystones. Each dish is artfully crafted and guests enjoy a welcoming environment with stylish decor and immaculately turned out waiting staff.

 Pigeon House

The Beach House

T: 012874623

The Beach House bar and bistro offers simple fare than the other restaurants mentioned, but deserves an honourable place in the list for its history, unrivalled location and brilliant atmosphere, combined with tasty food served by friendly staff. Situated right in the picturesque harbour of Greystones, The Beach House was first established in 1850 and is a family owned and operated pub since that time. Over the years, The Beach House has provided a welcome stopping place for locals, tourists, fishermen, hikers and hill walkers alike. It’s a fantastic sun-trap and people watching spot during summer and offers live music and entertainment all year round. A great place to get to know the locals if you’re new to the area.
