Creating a space for comfortable family living at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones

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.

The Arts, Culture and Community You Can Enjoy When You Buy a New Home at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones

Situated in a  perfect location, the seaside town of Greystones offers so many ways to enjoy an  active lifestyle, but it also offers an array of cultural pastimes that will keep you and your family entertained and enlightened. Here are just a few of the many ways in which homeowners at the new development of beautiful houses at SeaGreen Gate can pursue their artistic interests.

Get Inspired

Steeped in an artistic and literary tradition, Greystones has always provided more than its fair share of creative people, and been called home by many others, influenced no doubt by the surrounding landscape and the thriving cultural scene.

Samuel Beckett spent his childhood summers at the harbour, while JM Synge spent his at Rathdown House, JP Donleavy, author of The Ginger Man, lived on the seafront, while Richard Condon (author of The Manchurian Candidate), historical fiction author Robert Elegant and Irish Fairy Stories author Sinead de Valera all lived at The Burnaby at one stage. Dutch cartoon strip author Marten Toonder, who created the Oliver B Bumble series, also lived in Greystones for much of his life.

That literary tradition is alive and well today. Ross O’Carroll-Kelly biographer Paul Howard once lived in Greystones, while The Killing Snows author Charles Egan, and popular fiction authors Amy Lynch, KA Finn, JJ Toner and Ruth Fitzmaurice all call the town home.

It’s not just authors who get their inspiration from the town. Well-known musicians and actors are also commonplace. Ronnie Drew of the Dubliners lived here, and both Damien Rice and Hozier are residents, while Father Ted actor Frank Kelly and wildlife film maker Eamon de Buitlear lived here too. Saoirse Ronan is the latest artistic icon to move to the town.

With such an artistic heritage, and such a beautiful setting, it’s no wonder that Greystones has been hailed as the  self-publishing capital of Ireland.

Have a Whale of a Time

Just a short walk away from the appropriately named  Yeats, the  Beckett and the  Wilde four-bedroom houses at SeaGreen Gate, the  Whale Theatre is a recently refurbished, intimate 130-seat theatre with a unique atmosphere. Its aim is to foster culture, creativity and community, and is the home of the Greystones Players, a non-profit community drama group that aims to bring people from the Greystones area together to work in collaboration to make great theatre and to enrich the culture of the town.

Producing and hosting plays, cabaret, comedy, concerts, dance classes and performance art, The Whale offers great artistic events for the entire family, while it also hosts Greystones Film Club screenings, with membership free to everybody.

Hit the Hot Spot

Above the Beach House in Greystones harbour you will find the  Hot Spot Music Club, a centre for music and live arts. Crossing all musical divides from swing to trad to flamenco, the venue provides a stage for singer-songwriters, musicians, comedians and poets to showcase their talents.

culture_in_greystones_when_you_buy_a_new_home_at_seagreen_gate_hot_spot_music_club_hozier

Picture via The Hot Spot

Regularly hosting the likes of Tir Na Nog, Dermot Byrne, Leo O’Kelly, Nigel Mooney, Mick Hanly, Amelia Curran and Honor Heffernan, the club has also seen the aforementioned Hozier (pictured) take to the stage. It is also home to the Universal Funk Orchestra, whose covers gigs are always a hit, while the Ukulele Pluckers group meet on weekends for a weekly jam at which all comers are welcome.

As a family-run, friendly and relaxed venue, it’s a great place to mingle with the community, take part in a workshop, discover the next big thing, or even show off your own artistic talents.

Enjoy the Art of the Community

The harbour and  beaches in Greystones offer a multitude of  water-based activities, but for those with a more cultural leaning, there is plenty to enjoy on dry land.

The Greystones Art and Photography Exhibition  (GRAPE) at the harbour showcases local artists, photographers, arts and crafts and artisans, offering you a wide range of styles to browse as you enjoy  a perfect summer day.

culture_in_greystones_when_you_buy_a_new_home_at_seagreen_gate_greystones_art_photography_exhibition_harbour

Also to be found at the harbour is the  Boat Yard Gallery, a collection of paintings, design, crafts, ceramics, textiles, photography and jewellery. With a relaxed atmosphere, you can browse at leisure to find the perfect item to enhance your spacious living area, your  kitchen, your  bathrooms or your  bedrooms at SeaGreen Gate, or get inspired to create your own work of art.

On a larger scale, the  Greystones Art Group, established in 1965, aims to encourage amateur artists from the community. It works to advance the artistic knowledge and skills of its members through lectures and demonstrations, and facilitates an annual exhibition of paintings and other artworks.

They provide monthly outdoor painting sessions in different venues each time, as well as monthly demonstrations, so members can hone their skills and learn from experienced artists. The group will also play a part in Culture Night 2018 in September, having previously produced a mural as a result of a public paint-in, which was displayed at the Meridian Centre, and a series of mysterious figures and faces that were placed high in the trees along Church Road to create a spectacular view.

Studio artist Tom Byrne’s  Greystones Art Gallery is also a great place to view an artist at work, and to browse the many fine pieces he has created. He welcomes the community to drop in and watch as he works on a seascape or portrait, in order to gain your own inspiration, and his paintings have been bought by the likes of Gerald Kean, Bono and Louis Walsh.

Read Up

Given the literary heritage associated with Greystones, it is no surprise to learn that the community also fosters a great interest in literature and history. The library in the centre of the town offers the usual depository of reading material, but it also hosts the many flourishing book clubs that encourage locals to comment on copy and chat about chapters in a friendly and inspiring setting.

culture_in_greystones_when_you_buy_a_new_home_at_seagreen_gate_greystones_book_clubs_reading_groups

Of great renown, the  Greystones Archaeological and Historical Society is a very active group that promotes interest in and awareness of the historical and archaeological heritage of Greystones and the surrounding area. As well as monthly talks and lectures, the society also offers one-day and three-day trips to areas of historical interest, and publishes a journal that collects together articles of interest, often based on talks presented to meetings of the group.

Established in 1988, the society is constantly growing and is always looking for new members, so if you like the idea of finding out about the rich history of Greystones while meeting new friends and becoming a part of the community, this is the place to be.

As you can see from the above, while Greystones may be known as  a culinary hotspot that provides a host of great eateries, the many cultural offerings here can also give you plenty to feed your mind, and it is all within a few minutes of the beautiful  new houses at SeaGreen Gate. Homeowners at this new development can not just avail of the many activities that invigorate the body, they can also get inspiration to invigorate the mind while enjoying all this idyllic, culture-filled community has to offer.

Presenting the Jewel in the Crown of the Beautiful New Homes at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones

When it comes to finding the perfect home in  the perfect location, homeowners look for a house that combines comfort with convenience and spacious living with style, but they also want that something extra to really make their home stand out. At SeaGreen Gate in Greystones, that is what we provide with our  beautifully designed new homes, and the top floor room in these four-bedroom houses is the jewel in the crown of these stunning new builds.

seagreen_gate_master_bedroom_new_houses_for_sale_in_greystones

Every room in these new houses is designed for the maximum level of comfort and family-friendly living, from the sleek and spacious  kitchen and dining areas that lead out to the back garden patio, to the living room that offers large bay windows to enjoy the great views outside, to the luxurious bathrooms and ample bedrooms to suit all family members.

It is on the top floor, however, where we now showcase the huge amount of thought and effort that goes into the design of every room in every SeaGreen house.

In designing this majestic living space, interior designer Eily Roe aimed to create a room that was entirely different from the rest of the house. While the ground floor living areas provide the space and features that enable families to spend time together, to entertain, pursue their own  interests and activities, or to plan the  perfect summer day in Greystones featuring the  sun, sea and sand Greystones is famous for, on the top floor Eily focused on creating a subtle and quiet area that offers an oasis of calm and comfort. It has all the furnishings and features you would expect, and a few more innovative and luxurious features you might not.

Watch the video below to hear Eily Roe talk about this stunning living space.

The room is perfectly suited to be used as a master bedroom, with a large double bed and a generous wardrobe that provides ample storage space without taking over the living area, so it can be used for a multitude of purposes – not just for storing clothes.

The sleek and subtle design of the room means that there is a large amount of space in which to walk around, stretch out and relax, or arrange your favourite furniture to truly make the space your own.

The  team at SeaGreen design and build these houses in such a way that the families who own them can put their own individual stamp on the layout, and this room can also be used as a living space in which to relax, to practice yoga, meditation, or to exercise, as a reading room, or as the best home office you will ever find – it is really up to the homeowner.

The en suite in this room, as in the en suite bedroom on the second floor, features a standalone shower with a Velux roof light above it, so you can stand in the shower and look up at the stars, or the sun, above you, which we feel is a great feature that makes this room stand out.

SeaGreen_Gate_new_houses_for_sale_in_Greystones_latest_phase_of_development_luxury_fittings_bathroom-1

The show home also includes an illuminated mirror with Bluetooth speakers above the basin, offering an example of the kind of modern living options you can enjoy at SeaGreen Gate, and providing homeowners with another feature that makes this room such a pleasure to spend time in.

Perhaps the most innovative feature of this room, though, is the unique Velux balcony window. As the four-bedroom  Wilde, the  Yeats and the  Beckett houses are ideally situated on an elevated site overlooking Greystones, when you open out this balcony window (as Ken the carpenter demonstrates  here), you get a really great 180 degree view of the surrounding area.

SeaGreen_Gate_new_homes_for_sale_in_Greystones_from_Wood_group_luxury_interiors_great_features_bedroom_windows_great_view

By expanding this window and stepping out into the fresh air, you can enjoy the great scenery – of the town and sea beyond, of the  hills that come alive with colour in the summer, or of the mountains and stunning cliff walk – depending on your house location.

This feature really helps homebuyers to make so much more of this space and enjoy that penthouse feel in your family home.

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.

SeaGreen_Gate_show_home_new_houses_for_sale_SeaGreen_Greystones

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.

SeaGreen_Gate_new_houses_for_sale_in_Greystones_from_Wood_Group_patest_phase_of_development-1

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.

SeaGreen_Gate_new_houses_for_sale_Greystones_beautiful_interiors_top_quality_fittings_bathroom

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.

SeaGreen_Gate_new_homes_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_Brentford_Quadra_white_and_light_grey_bed

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.

Summer Time and The Living Is Easy at SeaGreen in Greystones

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.

seagreen_gate_summer_living_is_easy_beautiful_new_houses_for_sale_in_greystones

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.

seagreen_gate_summer_living_is_easy_beautiful_new_houses_for_sale_in_greystones3

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.

seagreen_gate_cliff_walk_greystones_bray_head_summer_living

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.

seagreen_gate_summer_living_is_easy_beautiful_new_houses_for_sale_in_greystones2

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.

happy_pear_dining_in_greystones_close_to_seagreen_houses_for_sale_perfect_for_summer_lifestyle-1

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.’

seagreen_gate_summer_living_is_easy_beautiful_new_houses_for_sale_in_greystones_the_happy_pear

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.

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.

The Advantages of Buying a New Home at SeaGreen in Greystones

When searching for the perfect place to call home, you need to consider whether a new build or a second-hand house is the right choice for your growing family. Here, we outline the benefits and advantages of choosing a brand new home, and how the houses for sale at SeaGreen in Greystones can meet your every need.

advantages_of_buying_a_new_home_build_at_seagreen_in_greystones_benefits_energy_efficient_cost_savings

Perfect Condition

The most obvious benefit of choosing a house in a new development is that there is no need to spend on renovations and repairs. Acquiring and paying for your mortgage are large expenses, so the last thing you want is to have to pay for costly fixes and upgrades to the existing structure, fixtures and fittings.

At SeaGreen, your family can walk straight into a house fitted out with a fully-fitted kitchen, luxury wardrobes, low-energy recessed lighting, high-spec ironmongery, and a high-pressure pump-fed shower, to name but a few features.

A brand new home will be ready to move into, and will have the most up to date facilities and features available, all of which will be clean, unused and in perfect working order, so you can avoid the new home costs that many people don’t consider. You should also have the benefit of a warranty that guarantees the house will stay safe and comfortable for many years to come.

The houses at SeaGreen – the three-bedroom Portland, four bedroom Wyndham and Bellevue, five-bedroom Somerby, and latest development at SeaGreen Gate – all come with a 10-Year Homebond Insurance Warranty, so you can be sure that you have bought a house that will remain in perfect condition for generations to come.

The SeaGreen homes are, as a result, built for the future.

Customised Comfort

Buying a second-hand house means that what you see is what you get, but if you buy a new house in the pre-construction phase, you can work with the development team to include furnishings and fittings according to your wishes.

top_insulation_and_energy_efficiency_among_many_reasons_to_buy_a_house_at_seagreen_in_greystones_in_the_new_year_new_phase_seagreen_gate

The expert team at SeaGreen is available on-site and works closely with buyers to integrate specific customisations wherever possible, taking care of redesigns and adaptations, so you can be sure that when you move into your new home, it will be just as you want it to be.

Our high-quality designs mean that many of our features, such as Velux Juliet Balcony windows, which give the houses a unique penthouse feel, are as luxurious as you would wish for, and provide you with the type of extra comfort you may not have even thought of.

Cost Savings

New homes will be built to the highest possible standards, and focus on energy-efficiency as a prerequisite. The use of top-quality insulation and materials means that your home can save you money, reducing energy bills, and can keep its value for many years to come.

All SeaGreen houses are A-rated for energy-efficiency, and we work with NuTech Renewables to design and implement the most sustainable housing available on the market.

Every one of our houses in this development features gas-fired and solar-enhanced heating systems, an A-rated condensing gas boiler, solar thermal panels, thermostatically controlled radiators, high-spec air tightness and insulation, and triple-glazed timber windows, to keep temperatures at an optimum level all year round, while saving you money on unnecessary heat or energy loss.

Chain Free

When buying a new house, you don’t need to worry about being stuck in a chain whereby a previous owner must wait to secure their own new home before you can move in. When you buy a SeaGreen home in Greystones, the house is yours, and ready to move into, as soon as construction is completed.

Consider the Location

Of course, the one thing you can’t change about a house, whether it is a new build or second-hand, is the location. However, SeaGreen is situated in a perfect spot. Overlooking the picturesque and thriving seaside town of Greystones, with the sea on one side and mountains on the other, the development offers a range of outdoor activities right on your doorstep, and all the amenities you and your family need to enjoy a great lifestyle.

Houses along the coast in close proximity to Dublin historically retain their high value, and at SeaGreen you also avail of a modern, sustainable home that increases that value further.

It is also extremely well situated for the commute to Dublin city centre, and to neighbouring towns, and has a number of top-quality schools nearby, so when it comes to finding the perfect place for your perfect home, SeaGreen is hard to beat.

Hidden Gems in Wicklow That Home Owners at SeaGreen in Greystones Can Enjoy

The beautiful seaside town of Greystones is well-known for its outstanding scenery and range of activities, but there are also some hidden gems in and around the area that provide locals with great ways to spend their free time.

It’s the perfect location to call home, with the great transport options making the commute to work easy, and a host of excellent schools close by, but when it comes to getting out and about and enjoying all the area has to offer, Greystones has a few surprises up its sleeve.

victors-way-scultpure-park-hidden-gems-in-wicklow-home-owners-at-seagreen-in-gryetones-can-enjoy.jpg

While many people are aware of the Wicklow Way and the absolutely stunning Cliff Walk, a lesser known and more family-friendly walk lies much closer to home for Greystones residents looking to stay healthy, or simply enjoy the scenery.The Glebe (also known as Jacob’s Ladder), is a winding trail that starts out at nearby Delgany and brings you through fields, along a river, then up some very old steps to the magnificent church overlooking the village. This easy stroll is much-loved by locals, and gives great views over the area.

A short spin in the car will also bring you to the starting point of the Downs Hill walk (pictured below), a place as peaceful as it is beautiful, where, on a good day, you can enjoy panoramic views over Greystones and the coast, as well as the imposing Sugar Loaf mountains, and all without the crowds.

downs-hill-hidden-gem-in-wicklow-for-seagreen-greystones-home-owners-to-enjoy.jpg

Powerscourt is deservedly recognised as one of the most beautiful places in ‘the garden of Ireland’ to spend a day, but Mount Usher Gardens in Ashford (below), less than 20 minutes from Greystones, is a well-kept secret. These gardens are a perfect place to unwind, to take time to, literally, smell the roses, before rewarding yourself with a tasty treat from the on-site Avoca café. Renowned horticulturist Monty Don says these gardens are one of his favourites anywhere, and we tend to agree with him.

mount-usher-gardens-hidden-gems-wicklow-for-seagreen-greystones-home-owners-to-enjoy.jpg

Another place that offers up the unexpected is Victor Way (or Victoria Way) near Roundwood (main picture), which really has to be seen to be believed. Covering nine hectares and including small lakes and wooded areas, this private meditation garden and sculpture park influenced by Indian philosophy offers up rare tranquillity, as well as some very eye-catching artworks. Dedicated to computer scientist and cryptographer Alan Turing, it focuses very much on providing nourishment for both body and mind, and is well worth a visit.

Speaking of nourishment, Greystones’ very own The Happy Pear has become a national sensation, but the village has many other, less well-known eateries that local foodies are more than happy to keep to themselves. Chakra, for example, is one of the best Indian restaurants in the country, and can be found right in the heart of Greystones.

Those who enjoy the active lifestyle and are looking forward to the upcoming Winter Olympics should be delighted to know that 20 minutes away is the Kilternan ski slope (below). While our island nation is used to the many water activities you can enjoy in Greystones, we don’t really expect to have ski facilities, but these artificial 180 metre and 130 metre slopes are among Europe’s finest, and give ski and snowboard fans the chance to practice their moves (or learn how to stay upright) before facing the real thing. The Ski Club provides lessons for all levels, and children will have a great time trying out tubing – the safe and fun way to tackle the slopes.

kilternan-ski-slope-club-hidden-gems-of-wicklow-home-owners-at-seagreen-greystones-can-enjoy.jpg

Of course, while these hidden gems are some of the Greystones area’s lesser-known treasures, the beautiful high-quality houses for sale at SeaGreen are less of a secret. These energy-efficient homes overlooking the picturesque village offer buyers the perfect base to start out on the many outdoor pursuits the surrounding area provides, and are a wonderful place to return to after a rewarding day out with the family.

The three-bedroom Portland, four-bedroom Wyndham and Bellevue, and the five-bedroom Somerby houses at SeaGreen, provide families with the comfort and living space they need, and bring with them the benefits of energy-saving features that keep bills down all year round.

SeaGreen_houses_for_sale_greystones_ways_to_save_money.jpg

The latest phase of development, SeaGreen Gate, will launch soon, and will also put a firm focus on sustainability combined with comfort and superior fixtures, tailored to your tastes and needs. These four-bedroom houses include top-quality insulation, solar thermal panels, high-tech triple-glazed timber windows and thermostatically controlled radiators, so you can ensure that no matter what activity you enjoy in Greystones, you can always return to a cosy home.

The Active Lifestyle In Greystones When You Buy Your Home At SeaGreen

Our dedicated team has been busy all year turning the exciting new development of houses for sale in Greystones into high-quality homes, but you can keep just as busy in the perfect location too. With a nod to the very informative and entertaining Greystones Guide, we take a quick look at just some of the activities, sports clubs, facilities and amenities for all ages that make this a great community in which to start the next phase of your life.

Mum & Dad

The leisurely activity of golf is just perfect for Greystones, and a short distance from the beautiful new houses for sale at SeaGreen are a couple of excellent courses. Situated in a beautiful and scenic area, what better way to spend your time in Greystones than by ‘ruining a good walk’ with 9 or 18 holes on one of the local golf courses?

Dubbed ‘Wicklow’s friendliest golf club’, Delgany Golf Club overlooks the town of Greystones and has as its backdrop the Sugarloaf Mountains. It has a proud Ryder cup heritage, a family-friendly vibe, and is one of Ireland’s oldest member-owned clubs. It also has a great membership offer up to the end of next year. You can find out more about the club here.

Charlesland Golf Club (pictured) is right by the south beach in Greystones and also brings a proud heritage with its 7,000 metres of prime land. Refurbished facilities and a beautifully designed course make Charlesland a big favourite amongst locals, and the flexible membership fees don’t hurt either. Also availing of its beachside proximity, the club has the luxurious SoBe healthy living hub that offers a café and fitness studios, and so much more.

Not to mention, of course, the nearby Druid’s Glen Golf Club, one of the top five parkland courses in Ireland and multiple-time host of the Irish Open and illustrious Seve trophy, the ‘little gem’ that is Kilcoole Golf Club, and the many other fine courses across the county.

The women’s rugby team has been in the spotlight lately with an interest in the sport on the rise for some time thanks to the success of Leinster and the national team in general. Rugby has always been a popular pursuit for people of all ages in Greystones thanks to Greystones Rugby Club, based at Dr Hickey Park. There’s always room to join up to become part of a team, or simply to enjoy being a member of a proud club that has produced, at last count, nine Irish internationals.

If all that talk of sport has made you hungry, there are thankfully a lot of choices when it comes to refuelling, with Greystones a real foodie delight. Try out The Burnaby on Church Street, where you can get great pub grub and a pint in one of the more relaxed places in town.

Fitness buffs, or those who just want to stay healthy enough to enjoy the great outdoors in the garden of Ireland, will enjoy Go Gym, where classes range from yoga and pilates to weights and bootcamps to Zumba and spin to boxing.

Open early and late every day except Sunday, when the hours are still pretty good, it’s a great place to get fit, have fun and make new friends in this homely yet thriving town.

For women who want to look their best, Zero One Salon is a favourite haunt (and top-rated for hair extensions we are told), with a personalised approach to each customer and some lovely little surprise extras thrown in making it a great place to go for your hair and beauty needs.

Another great place to eat in Greystones is The Happy Pear, dubbed by locals as ‘the happiest place on Earth’ and a café/restaurant that sees many followers flock from surrounding areas to dine on the healthy and great-tasting food. The family-run establishment started off as a fruit & veg store before branching out to become an organic food eatery, and popularity soon grew into a range of books, classes and YouTube shows.

The Children

There are so many sporting pursuits to choose from that children will find they are spoilt for choice in Greystones, but one thing this seaside location can offer that other towns can’t is the Greystones Rowing and Kayak Club. This is a fun and unique way to stay healthy, make friends and appreciate the shoreside, all while sitting down!

For those who prefer their fun indoors there is Zoom Adventure Play, or Zap for short, an indoor play and activity entre that has enough fun to keep children of all ages entertained. Tunnels, slides, obstacle courses and ball cannons across four floors, as well as a toddler area mean the children will be able to spend hours on end playing and making friends, while Mum and Dad sit back and relax in the spacious seating area and munch on the tasty treats made in-house.

Not forgetting great places for children to enjoy a tasty snack, the fantastic gluten and guilt free frozen yoghurt outlet Mooch has opened in Greystones, meaning children can get a healthy and delicious treat from as early as 7.30am – perfect if you are planning a full day out and about or if you want to fortify the kids before they head off to school.

We are only touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the number of great activities and fun things to do around Greystones, and all of these can be right on your doorstep if you choose to buy one of the beautiful, high-spec, energy-efficient houses for sale at SeaGreen.
