Summer Means Sun, Sand and Sea When You Buy a new Home at SeaGreen in Greystones

There are many truly great things about the seaside town of Greystones, from its position as a culinary hotspot to the many family pastimes to  keep everybody active, from its well-known  Cliff Walk to its  hidden gems, and one thing most locals will agree on, is that the beaches are definitely one of them. If you own, or are looking to buy, one of the beautiful new houses at SeaGreen Gate in Greystones, the sun, sea and sand at these beaches in  this perfect location are a great way to enjoy an  active lifestyle.

greystones-beach-seagreen-gate-houses-for-sale-south-beach-summer

There are two beaches in Greystones – the shingled North Beach beside the harbour, and the sand and stone South Beach at the southern end of the town. Greystones actually gets its name from the kilometre-long stretch of grey stones that separates the two.

Just as Greystones enjoys an  easy commute to Dublin city centre and the surrounding areas via a great public transport system and road network, the South Beach is also very accessible by DART, but for those living at SeaGreen, it’s just a short walk from your front door to the sand and the water’s edge.

Awarded a Blue Flag, the half-mile long South Beach is lifeguarded during the warmer months, and also has an adjacent playground, completely refurbished and improved this year, for children who want to take a break from splashing around and swimming in the clean and clear water.

The Blue Flag means that dogs will not be allowed on the beach from June to the end of August, so you don’t have to worry about anybody stepping in something unpleasant while sunbathing or going for a paddle.

Even in the winter months, the South Beach proves popular, with many hardy souls taking to the water for a refreshing dip, such as during the  annual Christmas swim.

One place many locals flock to is the little inlet known as Lady’s Cove that is situated between the two beaches. As well as the clean sand you can catch some rays from, it has great rocks to jump off and lots of opportunities for beachcombing to find interesting bits and bobs from the sea and creatures such as anemones at low tide, so your children will have a great time while you relax and enjoy the weather.

The North Beach at the harbour also provides locals with an array of  water-based activities, with the sailing club, sea scouts and angling club all situated nearby. The recently modernised marina accommodates up to 250 boats and attracts sailing fans from all over the world, so even if you don’t fancy getting into the water, you can enjoy a great day on it.

Greystones sailing club offers dinghy and keelboat sailing courses for children and adults alike, so if you don’t yet know your rudder from your tiller, you can sign up and soon be able to take to the water right from the beach and check out the coast from a different vantage point.

beaches-in-greystones-north-south-beach-when-you-buy-a-new-home-at-seagreen-gate-greystones

Of course, one thing that makes both of these beaches truly stand out is the jaw-dropping setting. Looking out across the sea, you can take in the views of nearby Bray Head all the way across Dublin Bay to Howth, while behind you stands the beautiful Wicklow Mountains.

Dolphins have been known to come close to shore for a visit, and while you may not see any whales, on a very fine day you can actually make out Wales on the distant horizon.

After a  perfect summer day on the beach, it’s great to know that you can walk the few minutes back into town to sate your appetite at one of the many great cafes, restaurants and pubs. From healthy food at The Happy Pear to crepes at Pierre Grise to pizza from the Delgany Inn, or even a cold treat from the Spendlove ice cream parlour, there’s a fantastic selection on offer to suit any tastes.

For owners of the new four-bedroom  Wilde, the  Beckett or the  Yeats houses at the SeaGreen Gate development, it is also great to know that after a day on one of the two beaches, or both if you are feeling active, it is only a few minutes’ walk back to your new home, where you can enjoy the comfort these superb new builds offer. Whether you want to gather in  the kitchen to share stories of your day, or plan to enjoy the  penthouse feel within a family home the innovative design of the interiors provides, is up to you.

The beaches in Greystones are just another reason why this seaside location is such a great place to live, but however you decide to spend the sun-filled summer days here, it is always good to know that  your new home is just a hop, skip and jump across the sand away.

The SeaGreen Kitchen: The Heart Of Your Family Home

A couple of decades ago, the design trend for kitchens was to make them as small and utilitarian as possible, often hidden from the dining and living spaces in houses. However, now we think differently. Modern life revolves around the kitchen, and it is now the centrepiece of the family home.

Bellevue Kitchen.jpg

We strongly appreciate the importance of the kitchen in family life, which is why we build our  houses for sale in Greystones to really showcase that living space where the family spends most of its time together, and focus on providing very detailed design considerations and features to make this room as spacious, useful, comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

The beautiful houses in the SeaGreen development situated in a perfect location by the sea in Greystones offer so much in the way of comfortable living, numerous outdoor activities for all the family, and easy commutes to Dublin city centre and the surrounding towns and facilities, but home is where the whole family returns to, and the kitchen is usually the first and last stop of the day.

It’s where the family gathers to cook, eat, talk about their plans for the day or what they got up to at work, at the nearby schools or out and about in the town, so it needs to be perfect. You can see how much of a focus we have put into the kitchen area of all our houses here, from our three-bed Portland (pictured below) to our four-bed Wyndham (second picture below) and Bellevue (main picture above) and five-bed Somerby houses.

Portland Kitchen 2.jpg
Wyndham Kitchen.jpg

We are currently working with our dedicated team on our exciting upcoming phase to make sure that the kitchen remains a priority when we turn these houses into perfect homes, and our upcoming show house features beautiful and elegant kitchen areas that make sure this is not just a space to cook in, but where the family can gather and enjoy the SeaGreen life.

Here, we offer a sneak preview blueprints of what we are planning for this upcoming phase, and we can’t wait to show it to you.

 

Hollybawn Down plan 19.07.17.jpg

As you can see, ample room is provided in these kitchens to enable the whole family to gather, with the centre island providing room where everyone can sit, eat and chat away from the cooking area – a perfect accompaniment to the home’s separate dining area. The kitchen includes a top-quality oven and microwave and a beautifully designed preparation area, so that it becomes another living space within the home.

Finished with the highest quality fittings and features, these kitchens are, as with all SeaGreen homes, highly-energy-efficient, meaning your energy bills will be kept extremely low, and are sleek and beautifully designed to give a homely yet modern feel that will offer all you need to make this very important part of your home the perfect place to be.

Hollybawn full view 19.07.17-1.jpg

Glass doors will lead out to the back garden so that on perfect days in Greystones you can open these and extend your living space, and allowing the sea air to bring a freshness to the home, just as you can with our high-spec balcony windows that give you that penthouse feel in your family home.

You can see the beautiful interiors we dedicate ourselves to creating in all of the houses at SeaGreen in the video below:

 

 

We’re excited to show prospective buyers the finalised kitchen design for our upcoming phase soon, so be sure to keep an eye on our social channels and register your interest here.

The Call of the Sea: Water Activities for the Family to Enjoy in Greystones When You Buy a SeaGreen Home

The cold and dark evenings are hopefully on their way out soon, and we can begin to look forward to the type of weather that makes Greystones  a perfect place to live. Situated on the coast just outside Dublin, this thriving town offers a number of great outdoor activities for all the family, as well as a few  hidden gems, and if you buy one of the beautiful new houses at SeaGreen, you can answer the call of the sea and enjoy a range of water-based pursuits practically on your doorstep.

water_activities_for_your_family_to_enjoy_when_you_buy_a_new_house_for_sale_at_seagreen_in_greystones

While the houses at SeaGreen all offer high-spec fixtures, features and fittings, one other major benefit of this development is its proximity to the coast, and the many activities it provides to make sure you and your family enjoy  a great lifestyle.

Here are just a few marine highlights of this great seaside location:

Greystones Harbour Marina

Recently modernised,  Greystones marina lies at the centre of the town’s beautiful harbour, and is a great place to indulge in your love of the water.

water_activities_on_your_doorstep_when_you_by_a_new_house_for_sale_at_seagreen_in_greystones

Accommodating up to 250 boats and attracting sailing enthusiasts from all over Ireland, the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, and even the US, the marina provides full boatyard facilities, including storage, hoisting, water and shore power, fuelling, and toilet and shower facilities. There is also free WiFi and local maps and guides, so even if you are not planning to head out on the water, it’s a great place to kick back and relax, or plan a day out inland.

The Beaches

On either side of the harbour lies a beautiful Blue Flag beach that provides a great chance to enjoy a bit of sun, sea and sand. In the summer months, these beaches prove very popular with locals and visitors alike, with the nearby railway line offering easy access from Dublin and the surrounding towns, but locals are also known to enjoy the water here all year round, as  the annual Christmas swim shows.

What makes these beaches truly stand out is the amazing setting, with stunning views across Bray Head and Dublin Bay to the north, and the majestic backdrop of the Sugarloaf and Wicklow Mountains to the west. On a clear day, you can even make out the west coast of Wales on the horizon across the Irish Sea.

Greystones Sailing Club

Celebrating its 50th birthday this year,  Greystones Sailing Club is one of the best dinghy sailing clubs in Ireland. The 350 member-strong organisation offers dinghy and keelboat sailing courses for a range of junior and adult classes and abilities, so whether you are an experienced racer or an absolute beginner, there is a course for you here.

water_activities_for_your_family_to_enjoy_when_you_buy_a_new_house_for_sale_at_seagreen_in_greystones_call_of_the_sea

The club has an active training and sailing programme providing instruction for 100 children and 30 adults every year, with ongoing training for other members, and runs a beginner’s course for Transition Year students at one of the  excellent local schools – the nearby St David’s Secondary School. It also provides courses for First Aid, powerboats and sailing instructors.

Greystones Ridge Angling Club

Having formed almost 60 years ago, the  Greystones Ridge Angling Club now has a brand-new clubhouse befitting the organisation’s appeal to the local community. With new members always welcome, they plan to make the club a centre of excellence for sea angling, and plan angling courses for people of all ages.

Sea Scouts

Based in the harbour marina, the  Greystones Harbour Sea Scouts provides children and young adults with a great way to stay active, have fun and make friends. With a full marine activities programme including canoes and dinghies incorporated into the normal land-based scouting activities, members can enjoy a good cross-section of outdoor pursuits. During the winter months, theory practice is taught, before summer sees the Scouts take to the water, fully prepared and ready to put their lessons into practice.

From the age of six, children can join the Beavers, then move on to the Cubs at eight, before joining the Sea Scouts at 11, then moving up to the Venture section at 15, then the Rovers at 18, with the possibility of taking on a leadership role, so no matter what age your children are, they will find fun and friendship here.

The Cliff Walk

If you love the sea but prefer to look at it from the comfort of dry land, the  Cliff Walk between Greystones and Bray is the perfect place to take in the scenery and get some exercise. The 7km walk along a well-maintained path offers great views of the surrounding coast, with the final stop at Bray Head well worth all the effort.

water_activities_for_your_family_to_enjoy_when_you_buy_a_new_house_for_sale_at_seagreen_in_greystones_cliff_walk

As well as the beautiful flora and many seabirds, porpoises, dolphins and basking sharks can sometimes be spotted by the keen-eyed walker.

If you don’t fancy retracing your steps back to Greystones, you can always take the 15-minute Dart ride from Bray station.

Greystones offers so many marine-based activities that you and your family will be able to enjoy a great lifestyle, and if you buy one of the homes at SeaGreen, you will be able to easily access all of these and experience all this town has to offer, before returning to the comfort of your beautiful home in this great development.

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.

Low-energy recessed lighting also brings that cosy and comfortable feel to every room.

The custom-fitted kitchens offer great storage and workspaces and are finished in a classic combination of white and walnut.

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.

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.

Seagreen_Gate_Kitchen_new_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_in_Greystones_from_Wood_Group_1-1

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

New Year, New Home: Energy Efficiency and Top-Rated Insulation Among the Many Reasons to Buy a SeaGreen Home

The start of January is the traditional time for change as we shake off the old year and ring in the new, and when we make decisions about what we can do to improve our lives. One of the biggest decisions we will ever make in life is finding the perfect place to call home, and with Christmas behind us and as we enter 2018, that decision could be made a lot easier for you as the launch of latest development of houses at SeaGreen in Greystones approaches.

new_year_new_home_energy_efficiency_insulation_low_energy_bills_at_seagreen_houses_for_sale_greystones_seagreen_gate_best_houses_reasons_to_buy.jpeg

Apart from the spectacular and beautiful setting in a perfect location, the range of activities that offer you and your family the chance to enjoy a great lifestyle, and the outstanding schools nearby, SeaGreen is perfectly situated to make the commute to the city and surrounding areas easy and comfortable.

And that’s before we even mention the houses themselves!

Our latest phase of development, SeaGreen Gate, is planned for spring of this year, and appropriately for this time of year, offers a ‘gateway to a new life’. This phase of four-bedroom semi-detached, mid-terrace and end terrace homes will continue our focus on sustainable, luxurious, high-quality builds that our buyers have seen in our three-bedroom Portland, four-bedroom Wyndham and Bellevue, and five-bedroom Somerby houses they are glad to call home.

When looking for a new house in January, one of the first things people tend to look out for is how warm and comfortable the home is, as these first few months of the year usually bring us a lot of cold weather. The A-rated energy efficient houses at SeaGreen are designed and built to the highest standards, so potential buyers will be pleased to see just how cosy and inviting they are, not just in winter, but throughout the year.

This energy efficiency also means that your energy bills will be kept at a minimum – good news after the expensive Christmas period, and when considering making such a large financial investment in your ideal home.

Though Greystones has the benefit of a mild climate, we know that good insulation is important for the comfort of your family, and we use the best possible materials, high-spec air tightness and insulation to ensure our houses are kept at an optimum temperature all year round, as Fran the Roofer explains here.

While the cold weather lingers outside, inside these homes the gas-fired and solar-enhanced heating system and A-rated gas boiler give perfect, efficient heating throughout the house and instant hot water on demand.

Solar thermal panels, Norwegian-made high-tech triple-glazed timber windows, and thermostatically controlled radiators add to that warm and cosy feeling, with no energy or heat lost, and any excess stored until it is needed. This dramatically cuts down on energy waste, so you can add helping the environment to your list of New Year resolutions.

The latest phase of development at SeaGreen goes that little bit further when it comes to energy efficiency and comfort, with remote heating and lighting controls, and cabling for electric vehicles on every house as standard. This idea of building for the future means that SeaGreen house buyers will have a place to call home for many lifetimes to come.

Speaking of the future, the A-rating on these homes will see their value increase over time because of the level of cost-savings involved, combined with the cost savings you can make when you buy a brand new home, and the New Year is a great time to start thinking about how the house you plan to buy can help save you money in the long run.
