Outdoor Eateries to Enjoy the Summer Sun When You Own a New Home at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones

As summer has well and truly arrived and we enjoy the soaring temperatures, there’s no better place to be than Greystones. This  perfect location offers an array of  water-based activities to keep cool, as well as great scenic walks that help you enjoy  an active lifestyle, not to mention the  beautiful beaches and harbour area. But as a culinary hotspot, this thriving town also offers a variety of eateries with outdoor seating, where you can relax and socialise with friends and family, and get a tasty snack while you soak up the sun. Here’s a few of our favourite spots for homeowners who live a stone’s throw away at SeaGreen Gate.

The Happy Pear

The Happy Pear is one of the most well-known eateries in the town, made famous by the Flynn brothers Dave and Steve, who with a little help from their family, have developed what was a fruit and veg shop into one of Ireland’s best-loved health food eateries.

There are a few small tables out front at the Church Road café (they also have one at the Shoreline), but it is out the back where most sun-lovers venture to try the exotic and locally-grown fare. It’s great to sit out here and relax in the sun while tempting your taste buds with some sweet potato fritters, baked miso aubergine, vegan pies or refreshing salads and vegetarian soups. This is healthy food at its best, and is great to enjoy while soaking up the sun and enjoying the fresh air.

The Happy Pear also offers a guilt-free takeaway menu, so you can enjoy a healthy and delicious meal to bring home to your four-bedroom  Wilde, the  Beckett or the  Yeats house at SeaGreen Gate.

The Beach House

Talking of Greystones institutions, for many people who stroll along  the Cliff Walk, the first port of call once they arrive in Greystones is The Beach House, a lovely pub and restaurant right by the harbour. This family owned spot has been here since 1850 and continues to prove popular with locals and visitors.

There is an a la carte menu from Monday to Saturday, with food also served on Sundays, but one of the best things about this Greystones institution is the lovely outdoor seating area where you can dig into the tasty food while enjoying a refreshing drink and the beautifully sunny weather.

las_tapas_outdoor_eating_to_enjoy_the_summer_sun_when_you_buy_a_new_house_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Gate_greystones

Las Tapas

Sampling delicious plates of food under the sun brings to mind holidays in Spain, and tapas is the perfect snack for the summer.

At Las Tapas on Church Road, you can order from the long list of Spanish delicacies and specialities, from breads and olives to chicken with salsa to spicy meatballs, to paella and chorizo, there is something here to satisfy every taste, and while the interior is lovely, in the summer it’s great to sit outside and enjoy the sun while watching the world go by.

The Three Qs

Staying on the continent, The Three Qs offers breakfast brunch and evening menus cooked up by brothers Brian, Colin and Paul Quinn. With a Spanish, French and Italian leaning, this cosy and friendly little restaurant is considered one of the finest in Greystones, and you may have to move fast to secure one of the few tables outside.

Once you do though, the food is great, with the breakfast menu offering porridge, croque monsieur, French toast and croissants, and the evening menu including everything from Spanish fish stew with chorizo to lamb shanks to good old fish and chips.

Bochellis

Also on Church Road you can find Bochellis, an Italian restaurant with a number of outdoor tables. There’s a large menu of pizza and pasta dishes, as well as a few chef’s specialities that include fillet of beef wrapped in Italian ham, veal escalopes and chicken in red wine and tomato sauce, but when  summer is here it is always a good idea to try a fresh fish dish.

From fresh mussels in chili, garlic and tomato sauce, to calamari rings to penne with prawns and mussels and fresh and smoked salmon in white wine sauce, there’s plenty here to give you that seaside feel as you bask in the sun.

Tramyard Kitchen

The outdoor seating at the front of Tramyard Kitchen gets some really great sunshine during the summer, so it’s a great place to settle down and enjoy the heat while digging into a burger, pizza, fish dish or steak.

They also have a very long wine list to choose from, so you can while away the long summer days sampling a refreshing tipple while the sun shines down on you and your family or friends.

great-outdoor-eating-to-enjoy-summer-sun-when-you-buy-a-new-home-for-sale-at-seagreen-greystones-tramyard-kitchen

Spendlove

Everybody loves an ice cream when the sun is shining, and at Spendlove, they offer really great cold treats that will help you stay cool. They also have very good coffee and snacks, but what better way to enjoy the summer sun than to sit and take your time over a delicious ice cream at the outdoor seating area here on Trafalgar Square overlooking the new marina? Or maybe you would prefer to take your ice cream away and enjoy it as you stroll along the harbour?

The number and range of quality eateries with outdoor seating that let you enjoy the summer sun while you dine is just one more reason why Greystones is such a great place to live. All of these culinary delights are just a few minutes away from the development of beautiful new homes at SeaGreen Gate, so if you are one of the owners of these luxurious and family-friendly houses, you can enjoy that al fresco summer dining feeling within a short walk from your home.

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.

Be Sure to Register Now for Our Autumn Launch!

culture_in_greystones_when_you_buy_a_new_home_at_seagreen_gate_literature_music_art

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.

Comfortable, Elegant and Family-Friendly Bathrooms in the New Homes at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones

To live comfortably in an ideal home, every room should be both functional and stylish, and the bathroom is no different. In a family home especially, having bathrooms that suit the needs of everybody is very important, and in the beautiful new homes at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones, we have designed these rooms to suit a growing family, without compromising on luxury and style.

Having recently given  a sneak peek inside the new four-bedroom houses at SeaGreen Gate in this perfect location, and presenting  the top floor room – the jewel in the crown of these homes – we here take a look at the luxury bathrooms.

seagreen_gate_beautiful_new_houses_for_sale_greystones_interiors_fittings_design

Modern bathrooms need to be functional and family-friendly, but in keeping with the beautiful design of the  Wilde, the  Beckett and the  Yeats homes at SeaGreen Gate, the three bathrooms and downstairs WC in our new development are also elegant, stylish and comfortable.

That means home owners at SeaGreen can enjoy having all the necessary space they require for their growing family, catering for the bathroom needs of parents, teenagers and young children. Having not one, or two, but four separate bathrooms is such a great facility to have.

Whether you need to grab a quick shower before the  easy commute to work, wash up after pursuing one of the  many activities Greystones has to offer, get the children ready to head off to one of the many  great schools in the area, or just want to relax in privacy and comfort in the bath, you can do so in these spacious homes, and every family member can use a separate bathroom when everybody is on the go at the same time.

As with the design of the  luxury kitchen and living spaces, these bathrooms provide ample and convenient storage space, with alcoves enabling you to keep toiletries within easy reach, but without causing clutter.

The cisterns are concealed to provide even more space, so everything is as clean and neat as possible, as interior designer Eily Roe points out in this video:

The spacious family bathroom includes a large bath and overhead shower in which you can relax and unwind after a perfect day in Greystones, and is given the same sleek interior look you can find in all other rooms in the house. It is fully tiled, with tiled alcoves providing ample storage, while the heated chrome towel rails ensure your family can enjoy that extra level of comfort and convenience.

As with the other bathrooms in the house, this space contains modern and recessed lighting to amplify space and give a cosy and clean feel to the room.

SeaGreen_Gate_new_houses_for_sale_Greystones_beautiful_interiors_top_quality_fittings_bathroom

The downstairs WC is very convenient for families, offering a large second toilet and wash area without the need to enter a bedroom to use an en suite at busy times, so there is no need to wait around or interrupt another family member. It also has a concealed cistern and semi-recessed wash basin, so that the space provided is optimised for comfort.

Moving upstairs, the en suite in the master bedroom provides home owners with a stylish and comfortable space in which to enjoy their privacy, with a standalone shower. It also has a really good vanity unit for storage.

beautiful_interiors_at_the_new_houses_at_SeaGreen_Gate_in_Greystones_elegant_stylish_functional_bathrooms

The en suite on the second floor has really optimised space too. It has a standalone shower and Velux roof light, so you can stand under the water and loop up at the stars or the sun above you. This is the type of feature, like the balcony window on the top floor, that helps give that  penthouse feel to the family home, and really makes the houses at SeaGreen Gate stand out.

The top floor en suite bathroom in the show home also includes an illuminated mirror with Bluetooth speakers above the basin, offering an example of the modern living options home owners at SeaGreen Gate can enjoy.

Having four bathrooms doesn’t have to mean a demand on energy or water, or high bills, because the state of the art heating and electricity systems in these houses mean your energy costs will be kept to a minimum. It won’t always be as warm as it is now, so the thermostatically controlled radiators that are heated by  highly-efficient natural gas boilers, the heat pump that uses waste air to produce continuous hot water, and the solar panels that provide free electricity to also heat water, is an added bonus.

The bathrooms in a house are not often talked about, but we feel that the comfortable, functional and elegant spaces in the new homes at SeaGreen Gate are just one of the many reasons why home owners at this development will find these homes an ideal family-friendly place in which to live.

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.

It has a large bath with an overhead shower, and there are easily accessible tiled alcoves to store showering essentials. The showhouse also has 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.

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.

seagreen_gate_interiors_sneak_peek_new_houses_for_sale_in_greystones

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.

Seagreen Gate Master Bedroom Wardrobe Perspective new houses for sale at SeaGreen in Greystones

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.

Cosy Culinary Hotspots for the Food Lover When You Buy a SeaGreen Home in Greystones

It looks like winter is refusing to leave us, with the freezing weather keeping people from getting out and about. If you own one of the beautiful  new houses for sale at SeaGreen in Greystones, however, there is lots to keep you warm until spring arrives. Not only will these superb energy-efficient and excellently insulated homes keep you and your family snug while the snow falls outside, the town itself provides an array of cosy culinary hotspots where you can bulk up to keep out the cold, and all within minutes of your front door.

Greystones is  an ideal place to live, with a range of activities to help you enjoy  a great lifestyle, but it is also  a foodie’s dream, offering a number of excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs, where you can while away the hours and enjoy a delicious meal. Here’s just a few ways to stay cosy and well-fed during the winter months:

Coffee at The Happy Pear

It’s impossible to think about food in Greystones without thinking of  The Happy Pear, the family-run shop and wholefood café that has become a national (and international) sensation since it first opened its doors in 2004.

As well as great healthy vegetarian food, their cafes on Church Road and in the Leisure Centre on Mill Road offer delicious coffee, so you can sit, sip and unwind in welcoming and friendly surroundings, keeping cosy while the cold weather bites outside.

Their devotion to the natural artisanal approach to food is also seen in their coffee, which they roast themselves, and source from the finest suppliers around the world, offering seasonal varieties that guarantee that no matter what the time of year, you will get a great-tasting coffee. In these cold months, it really hits the spot, so drop by, settle in, and spend a bit of time with friends or family over a tasty hot drink.

Hot porridge at The Three Qs

There’s nothing quite like good, wholesome food to keep you warm in the winter months, and to reward your bravery for venturing out into the snow, you can pay a visit to  The Three Qs on Church Road to enjoy their amazing brunch, lunch and dinner menus.

They offer traditional dishes such as wood pigeon, but also North African delicacies that add that extra spice you need at this time of year. Using the best local ingredients, all of their dishes are of a very high quality, but what makes this place a favourite spot for brunch among locals is their famed porridge.

Warm and creamy, and served with bananas and toasted almonds, it’s delicious, but perhaps the best ingredient in this dish is the Baileys, a perfect addition that will keep you warm all day long.

A Curry at Chakra

There are few things more satisfying on a cold and wintry day than a hot curry or a spicy dish, and Greystones is lucky to have one of the finest Indian restaurants in the country in  Chakra by Jaipur (main picture), based at the Meridian Point Centre.

The cuisine is hard to beat, with locally-sourced ingredients used to create modern takes on classic Indian dishes ranging from street food to succulent and satisfying mains, with something for every palate.

The stylish décor lends itself to an immensely cosy atmosphere in which you and your partner, or your whole family, can enjoy a satisfying, cosy meal.

BBQ at Tramyard Kitchen

A cosy BBQ restaurant right in the heart of Greystones means you have a great excuse to leave the house no matter what the weather.  Tramyard Kitchen provides relaxed dining in very cosy surroundings, making it the perfect place to meet up with friends over lunch or dinner.

culinary_hotspots_nearby_to_keep_out_the_cold_when_you_buy_a_seagreen_home_in_greystones_tramyward_kitchen

Serving a delicious range of chargrilled fish, chicken and juicy steaks, it’s a great place to drop into and surround yourself with the warmth of fire-cooked food.

Soup at the Beach House

There’s nothing like sitting in a cosy and welcoming pub when the weather outside is cold and unforgiving, and the family-owned and run Beach House pub at the harbour in Greystones has been providing a warm haven for locals, fishermen, tourists and hikers since 1850.

The Beach House offers an a la carte menu full of nourishing dishes, but we recommend dropping in for a bowl of their delicious soup served with homemade brown bread that will help keep out the cold.

culinary_hotspots_nearby_to_keep_out_the_cold_when_you_buy_a_seagreen_home_in_greystones_soup_beach_house2

A hotspot for lively conversation in a cosy setting, the atmosphere here might mean that dropping in for a bowl of soup may result in you spending more than a few hours enjoying the warmth on offer, and of course, one of the best pints of Guinness in the country.

The good thing is, however, that as with the other great places mentioned above, it’s only a very short walk away from home, if you buy one of the  houses for sale at SeaGreen, so you will be able to go from one cosy setting to another, and keep the cold at bay.

With all of these culinary hotspots right in the middle of the town, Greystones really is an ideal place to find a warm and cosy spot to spend your time, without having to go too far out into the freezing weather.
