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.

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.

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.

Intercity trains also serve Greystones, and will get you into work in the same amount of time.

If you need to get to the airport, or just enjoy a bus route to the city with fewer stops along the way, the Aircoach is a great option, with frequent journeys every day taking around an hour.

The Benefits Of Buying A Super Energy-Efficient House At SeaGreen’s Upcoming Phase Of Development In Greystones

People look for many things when they are searching for the perfect place to buy a house. They want a good location, comfortable surroundings, space for their family to grow, good local amenities and facilities, and the ability to turn that house into a home tailored to their preferences. Increasingly, people are also looking for a high-quality energy-efficient house that represents good value, helps keep the environment clean and saves on future bills.

benefits_of_buying_seagreen_houses_for_sale_latest_development_greystones_A1_rated_energy-efficient_homes.jpeg

The SeaGreen development of houses for sale in Greystones delivers on all of these considerations. The perfect seaside location, an on-site team for tailored specs, luxury fittings and superb local amenities mean this is a great place to call home, whether you are buying a three-bedroom Portland, four-bedroom Bellevue or Wyndham, the five-bedroom Somerby, or one of the great new houses in our upcoming autumn 2017 phase of development.

This upcoming phase of development goes even further to deliver the perfect home for you. Each of these top-quality houses will be built to hold an A2 Building Energy Rating (BER).

A BER is based on the calculated energy performance and associated carbon dioxide emissions for the provision of space heating, ventilation, water heating and lighting under standardised operating conditions. The characteristics of the major components of the home including dimensions, orientation, insulation, and space and hot water system efficiencies are used in the calculation. SeaGreen’s upcoming high-spec phase of development will all carry an A2 rating.

This is the second highest energy-efficiency rating possible (only a few individual builds or specifically renovated homes in Ireland have an A1 rating), as is explained here by the Sustainable Energy Association of Ireland (SEAI). It means these exclusive houses will offer great value for those who buy them, and help you to avoid the new home costs you might otherwise face.

Apart from being kind to the environment with low carbon emissions and providing real sustainability to keep the Greystones area beautiful, that value comes in two ways.

Firstly, this new phase of development at SeaGreen will see each of the houses increase in value over time because of the BER rating it holds. Homes with a good BER rating are worth a lot more than those that have an inferior rating, and a study by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) shows people are willing to spend up to 10% more to buy a house with high energy-efficiency because of the inherent values and cost-savings attached to them.

That is where the second aspect of added value comes in – cost savings. All of the SeaGreen houses use top-quality materials and technology to enhance sustainability, asBill Quigley from NuTech Renewables, who work with SeaGreen on this development, explains, and the upcoming A2-rated houses are built with the highest-quality roof and wall insulation, triple-glazed windows and top of the range energy-efficient fittings to minimise the costs of energy supply such as hot water and electricity, while maximising the benefits to you and your family.

seagreen_greystones_energy-efficient_houses_A2_BER_rating_low_energy_bills.jpg

A2-rated houses see energy bills costing a fraction of the costs other house owners face, with costs coming to just a third of those faced by even a B1-rated house, while emissions would also only be a third of those in B1-rated houses.

As explained by John the on-site electrician at SeaGreen, the state-of-the-art heating and electricity systems in these houses will see your energy bills kept to a minimum as you enjoy year-round comfort without the rising costs. Thermostatically controlled radiators will be heated by highly-efficient natural gas boilers, while a heat pump will use waste air to produce continuous hot water. Solar panels on these houses will also provide free electricity to heat water, while that top-quality insulation will keep the house warm when it’s cold, and cool when it is hot, as Fran the roofer shows here.

Having an extremely energy-efficient house also means you will be far ahead of current energy regulations, so you will have essentially future-proofed your home, meaning you can enjoy the benefits such a BER rating brings for many years to come.

Low energy bills, clean, green living, the added value of your home thanks to the best energy-efficiency rating, and the high-quality development in a beautiful location – the reasons to buy one of these superb upcoming SeaGreen houses for sale in Greystones just keep adding up.
