The Hampton, Potter's Point, Brittas Bay, Co Wicklow €130,000
Mobiles in Brittas don't get much smarter than the Roadmaster Hampton, for sale in Potters Point. Originally known as Ballinacarrig Park, which has been the Brittas home from home for generations of Dublin families since, it was established in the late 1950s. Located 40 minutes' drive from Dublin, each home in Potters Point sits on its own private plot in a parkland setting with direct access on to the beach. The resort also has its own nine-hole golf course, the use of which is free to members.
Measuring approx 7m x 14.5m, the Hampton is an upper-class holiday home with 111sqm of living space, not far short of the size of an average semi-d in Dublin. It has three bedrooms and a further one which could be used as either a playroom or family room.
The mobile has full central heating and is double-glazed and the master bedroom has a spacious en suite. The kitchen is fully fitted, and there is a separate utility area fitted with washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer. The open-plan living area has high ceilings, hardwood flooring and low-maintenance finishes throughout, which will be good news for anyone who doesn't fancy spending their summer skivvying. There's also a 93 sqm deck with sea views overlooking the pitch and putt course, where the next owners will be able to entertain the neighbours over a barbecue and a few glasses of chilled white wine.
Potters Point puts on a full programme of activities in the summer months and, although this year's programme has yet to be confirmed, members can expect to enjoy tennis coaching, tennis and golf tournaments, surfing with the Brittas Bay Surf School, Pilates, boot camp, mother and toddler sessions, arts and crafts, father and son soccer sessions, tag rugby and card games. The on-site clubhouse is open every day and there is also a shop in the resort. If cabin fever sets in, activities in the area include Glendalough, Wicklow Gaol and SeaLife in Bray, while McDaniels pub is just a short distance away.
