A Sneak Peek Inside Our Soon To Launch New Homes at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones

As the latest stage of development at SeaGreen approaches, the excitement is, quite literally building. Ahead of the spring launch of SeaGreen Gate, the upcoming phase of new houses in Greystones, we want to give you a sneak peek at our plans for the interiors, so you can know what to expect from these top-quality, beautiful homes.

Every house at SeaGreen is designed to keep energy costs down, and SeaGreen Gate, with an A energy-rating, will be our most  energy-efficient homes to date, with top of the range insulation, solar-enhanced heating and thermostatically-controlled radiators included. Here, however, we want to take a look inside the front door at the features and fittings that will make SeaGreen Gate the perfect home for you and your family.

Family life revolves around the kitchen, and the design of the SeaGreen Gate kitchens mean you and your family can enjoy modern conveniences and ample space in which to cook, eat and spend time together. The linear layout in matt combines a chic look and functionality, with all appliances – double oven, microwave, ceramic hob, dishwasher and integrated fridge-freezer – to one side for convenience and spaciousness. The kitchen storage spaces are also completely handle-less to add to the streamlined effect.

A telescopic extractor fan is sleekly integrated, while there is also additional storage available below the main wall units, and there is lots of space for food preparation on the ‘Florence Quartz’ counter top.

The washer and dryer are also in a separate utility room, so you can keep your kitchen as clutter-free as you wish.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area which, combined with the breakfast bar, gives you lots of room in which to spend time with family and friends, to entertain, and to enjoy the great lifestyle living at SeaGreen offers.

All of our houses include innovative features that meet the needs of a modern lifestyle, and one great feature of these new homes is the reading nook found in the sunny living space beside the kitchen. Surrounded by shelves and wall lights, you can sit here to read and relax, or stare out the large Velux window at the great views outside.

Speaking of views, the living room has a panoramic bay window, so you can look out over Greystones and enjoy the beautiful sea vista that makes this such a perfect location.

The master bedroom is planned to also give you a fantastic view, while providing you with the space you need to relax. There is ample storage on the shelves and in the wardrobes, with the quality and finish of the fitted and free-standing furniture sleek and refined. The en suite is fully tiled, with more storage available in the vanity unit.

The master bedroom and bedroom 2 are finished in legno white, while bedrooms 3 and 4 are in light grey, both giving a clean and smooth feel. Bedroom 3 also has a double wardrobe, with room for a desk and bed with storage drawers underneath.

The family bathroom is also fully tiled around the bath and shower area, with the large bath offering a tempting chance to relax and unwind, while the easily accessible tiled alcoves mean you can keep all toiletries and bathing essentials out of the way.

No matter how large your family, you won’t have to worry about being disturbed when you relax in the bath, because the houses at SeaGreen Gate also include an elegant downstairs guest bathroom. This includes a concealed cistern and semi-recessed basin, with the floor and part of the wall finished in timber-effect tile topped with off-white stone.

The warm, muted décor to the walls and woodwork, as well as the low-energy lighting throughout, will make these homes cosy and comfortable all year round, and as with all of the other houses in the SeaGreen development, these will be decorated in a contemporary, modern yet eclectic style, inspiring the home owner to create their own special and personalised living space.

All of the houses at SeaGreen Gate will be designed to the highest quality, but we know that each person who buys one of our new homes will have their own personal tastes, which is why our expert and friendly on-the-ground team will, as ever, be on hand to help you turn your new house into your own dream home. They can take care of any redesign, changes or adaptations you want to make, and by dealing directly with home buyers, can quickly take care of any changes or specifications.

We will be revealing more details of these beautiful new homes in the coming weeks, so remember to check in on our site and blog for updates. In the meantime, you can register your interest in a home at SeaGreen Gate here.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy, Exciting New Year at SeaGreen in Greystones

The festive season is well and truly upon us, and we would like to wish all of our buyers, past, present and future, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at SeaGreen in Greystones.

We have had a very busy and rewarding year as we continue to build our development in an unrivalled location overlooking the village and the sea. We were truly delighted to build on this site to give our buyers all the benefits of a home in such a beautiful setting, while also being able to avail of a great lifestyle, and the superb schools, the area has to offer.

Our three-bed Portland, four-bed Wyndham and Bellevue, and our five-bed Somerby houses Have provided our buyers with A-rated energy-efficiency, so while we might hope for a White Christmas, we can be sure that it will also be a green one.

As with all of the Wood Group homes, we focus on sustainability and comfort combined at SeaGreen. Each of our houses features efficient heating systems including heat pumps, gas-fired and solar-enhanced heating, and photovoltaic panels that turn light into energy, while the thermostatically controlled radiators mean that these houses remain at an optimum and efficient temperature. This is great all year round, but especially cosy for those Christmas evenings with family and friends.

But we also work with our buyers to ensure they get the perfect house to call a home, in an ideal setting from which they can enjoy all that Greystones has to offer, whether that’s at Christmas, or in the glorious summer months by the sea.

Having broken ground in 2016, the first phase of the SeaGreen development of houses for sale in Greystones was ready in January and had completely sold out ahead of construction.

Phase 2 saw a similarly huge level of interest as we brought more three- and four-bedroom homes to the market. As you can see from one of our flyover videos from early in the year, we had a lot of work to do to build our latest phase of development, starting with SeaGreen Avenue and SeaGreen Drive.

By the end of March, the development was starting to shape up nicely as our team worked tirelessly to construct these superb energy-efficient houses with the best materials on the market and get them ready in time for our buyers.

Blessed with good weather, by the start of the summer, the first ten houses on SeaGreen Avenue were near completion, and we continued to work on Numbers 11 and upwards while the foundations for the first houses on SeaGreen Drive were ready to be built on, as you can see here.

By the end of June, half of this street had begun to take shape, and the long summer days meant we were able to make great progress on the site, turning our attention to SeaGreen Park as September rolled around and we put the final touches to SeaGreen Drive.

The colder weather didn’t stop us, and we continued to turn this beautiful site into a high-quality development that comes closer to completion with every passing day. A look at our flyover video from November will show you just how much has been done since the start of the year, but we won’t be stopping any time soon because we are building for the future.

We are very excited about our next phase of development, planned for spring 2018 and called SeaGreen Gate. It will consist of four-bedroom semi-detached, mid-terrace and end terrace homes. We have taken the wishes of our potential buyers on board to tailor these new homes to their specifications, and have thus made many improvements to their design, resulting in what will be a new development of luxurious, energy-efficient houses to be proud of.

There will be more information about this latest phase coming soon, so keep an eye on our website and blog for further details.

In the meantime, have a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

The New Home Costs You Can Avoid By Buying At SeaGreen In Greystones

Buying a new house is one of the biggest expenses you are likely to face in your lifetime. While you want to make sure that the place you decide to call home is perfect, there can sometimes be an endless list of costs associated with turning it into the dream house for you and your family. On top of the mortgage comes snag and fix lists, or the costs of simply making changes to turn it into your ideal living space. Once you move in, the first bills soon arrive, and only then will you realise how much your heating and electricity is costing you. That’s why opting for one of the new houses in the SeaGreen development in Greystones is a perfect solution.

SeaGreen_houses-for-sale_in_Greystones_save_costs_energy_efficient_homes.jpg

Built to the highest standards, these great new houses for sale in Greystones offer tremendous value, and allow you to avoid many of the costs associated with buying a new home, meaning you can save more towards enjoying your life.

The Mortgage

One major cost-saver is the fact that many of the houses in the SeaGreen development qualify for the Government’s Help To Buy Rebate. If purchasing a three-bedroom Portland house, qualifying first-time buyers can need just €20,500 and expect to make repayments of just €1,382 per month. If buying a four-bedroom Wyndham house, a deposit of just €25,500 and repayments of €1,553 may be needed.

This means that the sometimes unachievable mortgage deposits many first-time buyers face can be made much more manageable, and these lovely homes are much more affordable than you might think, so you can realise your dream of owning a great house in a perfect location.

Putting together your mortgage application can be difficult, so we have made a handy Guide that you can download below:

New Call-to-action

The Bills

Having taken on a mortgage, the last thing you need is sky-high bills coming in your brand new door, but at SeaGreen, all of the houses are built to the highest possible levels for energy efficiency, with an A2 BER Rating, as John the on-site electrician explains in this video. This means the cost of heating your home will be kept to a minimum.

The thermostatically controlled radiators are heated by a high-efficiency A-rated natural gas boiler, while an efficient heat pump uses waste air from bathrooms to produce continuous hot water. Solar panels provide free electricity to heat water too, while each house is kept comfortable all year round for a minimal cost due to the triple-glazed windows and top-quality insulation.

The Fixes

Even in new builds, buyers can face a list of fixes that require attention, and once these are done, any defects that later start to appear may be left to the homeowner to tackle, and pay for. However, all of the houses at SeaGreen come with a ten-year Homebond Latent Defects Insurance warranty, so in the unlikely event that something does happen, there is comfort in knowing that there is comprehensive cover for defects insurance, structural insurance and a five-year Homebond cover for mechanical and electrical, water and smoke ingress.

The Personalisation

Making your new home your own is another major cost many people have to face, and it can take years to truly turn your house into the place you dreamed of as other expenses take over. These costs can be avoided at SeaGreen too.

An expert team is available on-site to take care of any redesigns or adaptations, so you can be sure that when you move into your house, it will be just as you wanted it to be, and you won’t have to think about chipping away at your savings piece by piece to furnish your home to meet your personal tastes.

With many of these great houses eligible for the Help To Buy Rebate, high-spec design that keeps energy bills low and an on-site team who can help personalise your home ahead of moving in, the SeaGreen development in Greystones offers many ways to keep the cost of buying your new home down.
