At Wood Group homes, we’ve always known that Greystones is  the perfect place to live, and now it’s official! The Royal Town Planning Institute’s (RTPI) independent panel of judges have announced their shortlist of ten great places to live in Ireland, and Greystones is one of them, which makes the launch of our latest phase of development at SeaGreen Gate even more exciting.

Out of 95 towns nominated across the country, Greystones has been selected as one of the best by the RTPI, a professional body for town planners in Ireland and the UK, whose competition celebrates some of the most attractive and inspiring places in our country.

Chair of the RTPI Ireland, Marion Chambers, said the finalists are all ‘places clearly loved by the public, that have been protected, carefully planned or improved by the planning system.’

With our perfect location beside the sea, with an abundance of  water-based activities on offer, the spectacular backdrop of the Dublin/Wicklow mountains, our  beautiful beaches and harbour, and our thriving town centre full of  culinary hotspots, we know we are in with a great chance of being declared the overall winner.

That’s not to mention our many high-quality schools, the transport network that makes the commute so easy, and the number of amenities and activities for all the family that Greystones provides, which help to inspire an artistic and  creative community.

Homeowners at the beautiful, top-quality new  Wilde, the  Beckett and the  Yeats houses at SeaGreen in Greystones enjoy all that the town has to offer, and with the upcoming launch of our latest phase of development at SeaGreen Gate, you can join them.

There are also  four separate bathrooms – a downstairs WC, family bathroom and two en suites – designed with both elegance and comfort in mind, and including some great and innovative features such as Velux roof lights that allow you to take a shower while looking up at the blue skies or the stars above.

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.

culinary_hotspots_nearby_to_keep_out_the_cold_when_you_buy_a_seagreen_home_in_greystones_chakra

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.

Looking Back at Our Glendale Development and Looking Forward to Our Next Phase at SeaGreen in Greystones

At Wood Group, we pride ourselves on building high-quality and high-spec houses in  the most desirable of locations, and our team focuses on working with buyers to turn those houses into the ideal home to suit their needs. We have already completed several phases of development at SeaGreen in Greystones, and are excited about the next phase, which we expect to be ready in spring 2018.

Our three-bed Portland, four-bed Bellevue and Wyndham houses, and our five-bed Somerby houses for sale in Greystones, have been designed with energy-efficiency top of mind, combined with superlative features, fittings and design, and they continue our long history of developing beautiful homes.

One such earlier development we are very proud of, and which will give you an idea of the level of style, functionality and high-spec features we will bring to our next phase at Seagreen, is our bespoke and exclusive development of eight four-bed detached houses at Glendale in Delgany, Co Wicklow.

Glendale_delgany_houses_from_Wood_Group_hint_at_next_phase_of_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_4.jpg

Situated at the Old Nurseries in this beautiful village, these A3-rated five-bedroom houses were built in 2015 and were very quickly snapped up. They stand in a private wooded enclave on one and a half acres, with landscaped green areas throughout, so buyers can enjoy the serenity and peacefulness of the countryside, within minutes of a thriving village that has so much to offer in terms of a great lifestyle for the whole family.

Our goal has always been to build high-quality residential developments in which superb craftsmanship and fine attention to detail is married with inspiring architecture to create prestigious homes of character and personality, and Glendale fits this description perfectly.

We wanted to provide families with the type of home they could really call their own, and worked with them to discover and deliver on the features they felt were most important. We also wanted to ensure the houses were not only functional, but cost-efficient, and kind to the environment, as well as being outstandingly beautiful and stylish, giving enough room for a family to grow in comfort.

As with the houses at SeaGreen, the homes at Glendale have placed an emphasis on sustainability and energy conservation to keep bills for buyers down and the environment clean. These homes include energy-efficient, high-performance double-glazed windows, gas fired central heating, a high-efficiency condensing boiler, low voltage recessed lighting throughout, great insulation, high-pressure pump-fed showers, and a rainwater harvesting system.

Glendale_delgany_houses_from_Wood_Group_hint_at_next_phase_of_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_1.jpg

Just as we do at our SeaGreen development, we worked with NuTech Renewables to develop a solar-powered heating system that keeps energy bills at a minimum while providing all the heat and hot water your growing family needs.

On the design front, the Glendale houses included some great features, including a fully-fitted kitchen with timber painted doors and granite worktops, a double oven range, solar powered remote-controlled Velux windows, panoramic bi-fold patio doors, luxury wardrobes in all bedrooms and beautiful wall tiling.

Glendale_delgany_houses_from_Wood_Group_hint_at_next_phase_of_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_3.jpg

They also came with a Homebond ten-year guarantee, so buyers could be sure that their houses were secure, built to the highest standards, and would last throughout their lifetimes and beyond.

From the images you can see here and by viewing our gallery, you can see just how beautiful and stylish these houses at Glendale are, and how they provide the perfect comfortable home environment from which our buyers can go out and enjoy all that this spectacular part of our country has to offer.

Glendale_delgany_houses_from_Wood_Group_hint_at_next_phase_of_houses_for_sale_at_SeaGreen_Greystones_2.jpgThe success of the Glendale development has inspired us to even greater heights, and we are confident that, having listened again to the requests and feedback from our buyers, we can build more superlative houses for our next phase of development at SeaGreen.

These homes will include the same high level of energy-efficiency and style, the same dedication to providing all you need to live in comfort in beautiful surroundings, and perhaps even more.
