The SeaGreen Kitchen: The Heart Of Your Family Home

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:

Preparing for Phase 2 of SeaGreen Gate in Greystones: The Gateway to Your New Life

The launch of the latest phase of development of new houses for sale at Seagreen Gate in Greystones has been a great success. With showhomes  recently on view over two gloriously sunny weekends in this  perfect seaside location, we were able to share just what these beautiful new homes can offer, and while each of the 22 houses in this phase have been sold, we’d love to share more information about the  stylish and modern living spaces that you can expect from our upcoming next phase of development.

The mid-terraced  The Wilde houses, end-of terrace or semi-detached  The Yeats, and the end-of-terrace or semi-detached  The Beckett sit atop a gently elevated site that provides stunning views over the coastline and the Irish Sea, and on a clear day you can even see as far as Wales.

Inside the houses, homebuyers at our recent launch were able to see how the highest level of craftsmanship is combined with the finest materials to offer superb family homes in an area that provides  a great lifestyle, an  easy commute, and a range of  high-quality schools.

The quality of these houses is immediately evident, before you even go inside. Each of the homes in this phase of development has a half-brick, half-nap render façade, complemented by string course detailing and granite to the sills of the Norwegian-made triple-glazed timber-framed windows, while the pathways and front driveway are laid in eco-friendly permeable cobblelock paving.

Inside, these houses avail of the beautiful natural light and amazing views by providing bay windows to the front of the ground floor and first floor, with that spacious feel accentuated by the sleek and modern design throughout every room. Low-energy recessed lighting also brings that cosy and comfortable feel to every room.

The custom-fitted kitchens offer great storage and workspaces and are finished in a classic combination of white and walnut. They include electric hob, cooker, telescopic extractor fan, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave, with the Florence Quartz countertop and a sleek handle-less design providing the optimum level of space.

Together with the soft white doors, the finish in these kitchens achieve a diffused palette that gives the homeowner the freedom to personalise their living space and truly turn their  house into a home.

The separate utility room also means that you can keep the kitchen, adjacent dining area and breakfast bar – the  heart of the family home – as a spacious area where you can prepare and share a meal with family, or socialise with friends in comfort, while the beautifully-conceived reading nook offers a little oasis of calm where you can put your feet up and enjoy the views.

The family bathroom is fully-tiled around the large bath and overhead shower, with tiled alcoves for storage maintaining the sleek interior look, while the heated chrome towel rails ensure your family can enjoy that extra level of comfort and convenience.

The downstairs bathroom, meanwhile, offers more convenience, comfort and sleek design by including a concealed cistern and semi-recessed basin, with the floor and part of the wall finished in timber-effect tile and off-white stone.

The first floor has two double bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a single bedroom, while the second floor master en suite also boasts a unique feature – a balcony-style Velux roof window that enables you to bring  that penthouse feel to your family home and enjoy  the perfect summer day in Greystones.

Three of the four bedrooms are fitted with luxury in-built GredorWood wardrobes, and all are spacious and bright, making them perfect for every family member to enjoy their own personal space.

The SeaGreen Gate homes have all been designed to achieve an A2 BER for  energy-efficiency and sustainability, with features such as a high-efficiency gas-fired condensing boiler for natural gas central heating, thermostatically-controlled radiators throughout, and roof-mounted solar thermal panels, ensuring energy bills are low while helping to keep the environment clean.

We were delighted with the popularity of these beautiful new homes, but are equally excited about starting our next phase of development, and bringing the next 20 houses at SeaGreen to you. The energy-efficiency, superior design and excellent craftsmanship that has gone into our development mean we are confident that at  SeaGreen Gate, we can provide you and your family with the gateway to a new life.

Looking Back at Our Glendale Development and Looking Forward to Our Next Phase at SeaGreen in Greystones

At Wood Group, we pride ourselves on building high-quality and high-spec houses in  the most desirable of locations, and our team focuses on working with buyers to turn those houses into the ideal home to suit their needs. We have already completed several phases of development at SeaGreen in Greystones, and are excited about the next phase, which we expect to be ready in spring 2018.

Our three-bed Portland, four-bed Bellevue and Wyndham houses, and our five-bed Somerby houses for sale in Greystones, have been designed with energy-efficiency top of mind, combined with superlative features, fittings and design, and they continue our long history of developing beautiful homes.

One such earlier development we are very proud of, and which will give you an idea of the level of style, functionality and high-spec features we will bring to our next phase at Seagreen, is our bespoke and exclusive development of eight four-bed detached houses at Glendale in Delgany, Co Wicklow.

Glendale_delgany_houses_from_Wood_Group_hint_at_next_phase_of_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_4.jpg

Situated at the Old Nurseries in this beautiful village, these A3-rated five-bedroom houses were built in 2015 and were very quickly snapped up. They stand in a private wooded enclave on one and a half acres, with landscaped green areas throughout, so buyers can enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of the countryside, within minutes of a thriving village that has so much to offer in terms of a great lifestyle for the whole family.

Our goal has always been to build high-quality residential developments in which superb craftsmanship and fine attention to detail is married with inspiring architecture to create prestigious homes of character and personality, and Glendale fits this description perfectly.

We wanted to provide families with the type of home they could really call their own, and worked with them to discover and deliver on the features they felt were most important. We also wanted to ensure the houses were not only functional, but cost-efficient, and kind to the environment, as well as being outstandingly beautiful and stylish, giving enough room for a family to grow in comfort.

As with the houses at SeaGreen, the homes at Glendale have placed an emphasis on sustainability and energy conservation to keep bills for buyers down and the environment clean. These homes include energy-efficient, high-performance double-glazed windows, gas fired central heating, a high-efficiency condensing boiler, low voltage recessed lighting throughout, great insulation, high-pressure pump-fed showers, and a rainwater harvesting system.

Glendale_delgany_houses_from_Wood_Group_hint_at_next_phase_of_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_1.jpg

Just as we do at our SeaGreen development, we worked with NuTech Renewables to develop a solar-powered heating system that keeps energy bills at a minimum while providing all the heat and hot water your growing family needs.

On the design front, the Glendale houses included some great features, including a fully-fitted kitchen with timber painted doors and granite worktops, a double oven range, solar powered remote-controlled Velux windows, panoramic bi-fold patio doors, luxury wardrobes in all bedrooms and beautiful wall tiling.

They also came with a Homebond ten-year guarantee, so buyers could be sure that their houses were secure, built to the highest standards, and would last throughout their lifetimes and beyond.

From the images you can see here and by viewing our gallery, you can see just how beautiful and stylish these houses at Glendale are, and how they provide the perfect comfortable home environment from which our buyers can go out and enjoy all that this spectacular part of our country has to offer.

Glendale_delgany_houses_from_Wood_Group_hint_at_next_phase_of_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_2.jpgThe success of the Glendale development has inspired us to even greater heights, and we are confident that, having listened again to the requests and feedback from our buyers, we can build more superlative houses for our next phase of development at SeaGreen.

These homes will include the same high level of energy-efficiency and style, the same dedication to providing all you need to live in comfort in beautiful surroundings, and perhaps even more.

How The SeaGreen Team Are Turning Your House Into A Beautiful Home

Buying a new house is a major commitment, but what is most important is turning that house into a home you can call your own and in which you feel comfortable. Everything about it, from the fixtures and fittings to those little features that make it stand out from the rest need to be at the level you expect, to guarantee your happiness lasts a lifetime.

seagreen_greystones_houses-for-sale_high-spec_interiors_team_turns_your_house_into_a_home.jpg

At SeaGreen Greystones, the entire team has worked to make this a reality. From Keith the forklift operator who breaks the ground and transports materials to the site of this new development right to the top of the houses with Fran the roofer, and everybody in between, the team working on the SeaGreen houses are very proud to have turned this new build into the perfect home for you.

Keith has been working with SeaGreen for three years, but is still amazed by the coastal views offered by this perfect location by the sea, a sentiment shared by all of the team who have worked on this site to turn this exciting development into luxury, high-spec houses, especially Fran the roofer, who has enjoyed the fantastic views all summer.

Ray the Plumber has overseen the installation of the 3 ½ horse power water pump that looks after all of the plumbing in the SeaGreen houses at Greystones. The rain head shower in the en suite and a separate shower in the main bathroom, as well as all of the sinks throughout the house, all operate off this water pump to give outstanding water pressure at all times. There’s no noisy pipe rattling though, with this feature the quietest on the market.

 

 

Heat production from the heat pump is half the price of that from a conventional boiler, and a quarter of the cost of an immersion system, making it the most efficient way to produce hot water in your home, and meaning your energy bills stay extremely low as you enjoy all the comfort and benefits of a SeaGreen home.

You can read more about the benefits of these super-energy-efficient houses here.

Ray is also very impressed with the piping throughout the house, saying it is of a quality he has never seen before in Irish homes. A German manufactured multi-layer pipe, the fittings, he says, have a ten-year no leak guarantee. Other beautiful features in the bathroom of these homes include the wide shower doors and the soft-shut toilet seats that guarantee longevity.

Ken the carpenter, meanwhile, has been very impressed with the triple-glazed Velux balcony windows in all four-bedroom houses to date at SeaGreen. It’s top pivoted for easy opening and spacious head height, and when you open the bottom section it opens out to become a railed balcony so that you can enjoy being outside, even when you are inside. ‘Like having the benefits of a penthouse apartment, in your family home,’ he says. Perfect for summer days, and for enjoying the fresh sea air all year round.

John the electrician is particularly proud of the fuse board and electrical fittings, saying every part of his job involves using the highest-quality materials, from the chrome sockets to the LED bulbs to the solar panels and heating, ‘all top-spec’ as he says.

 

 

He too mentions how the high-spec energy efficiency that is central to all SeaGreen houses means energy bills are kept to a minimum, meaning you can be free to spend your hard-earned money on the things that matter most to you, and enjoying all that Greystones has to offer you and your family.

Fran the roofer has used high-quality tiles that he says will last not just a lifetime, but far beyond, and are both ventilated and insulated to the highest levels to give these houses a comfortable and easily maintained optimum temperature all-year round.

 

 

These high-quality specs, fixtures and fittings are the important foundations upon which each SeaGreen development is built, and with the on-site team working to give you direct access to contractors, you can be sure that you can turn your new house into the perfect home. You can also get some furnishing tips from interior designer Eily Roe, who is available on-site to meet you and give advice on how to perfect your home interiors.

Check out the video below to see just how beautiful these homes are, and what you can look forward to calling your own.
