Family affordable in attractive Greystones home
AFTER South Central and Coastal Dublin, North Wicklow is Ireland's most expensive location. Affordable family homes in Greystones are therefore as rare as hens teeth.
Aside from terraces constructed in the Charlesland scheme during the boom years, opportunities for young families in the scenic seaside village are sparse.
With a private treaty price tag of €350,000, a three bedroom home at 12 Redford Park near the beach and village at Greystones may solve the problem for one young couple starting out and hoping to remain in the area.
Spanning 667 sq ft, the detached bungalow comes with a living room, a kitchen/dining room and a family bathroom.
There is off street parking for two vehicles and a substantial rear garden which offers opportunities for an extension – allowing the expansion of the home along with the resident family.
Another key advantage for those with a young family is the fact that the property overlooks a good sized green and therefore offers children a safe and accessible play area.
In addition, the shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs at scenic Greystones village, and the harbour with its boats and the beaches, are all within a five minute walk of the front door – along with the DART station which has to provide one of Ireland's most scenic commuter journeys along the coast.
