170 Heathervue, Greystones, Co Wicklow €545,000
In the Irish Independent Reader Travel Awards 2020, our readers voted the Bray-Greystones Cliff Walk in Wicklow ‘Ireland’s Favourite Local Attraction’.
Since then, sections of the well-loved walk have been rerouted permanently after a number of landslides made the existing trail too dangerous to reopen.
Despite the fact that it’s now partly diverted inland, walkers and hikers continue to beat a path between the two north Wicklow towns, often rewarding themselves in one of the trendy eateries at either end.
For Greystones locals, that’s often a tasty vegan treat in The Happy Pear or coffee at the Beach House before strolling home.
From the main street, that’s a five-minute walk for those living in Heathervue, a development of mostly semi-detached houses next to the Burnaby estate.
Set on an elevated site with sea views, it’s popular with buyers who are not afraid to push the boat out to snap up a family home in this sought-after neighbourhood.
With the Dart line putting Greystones firmly on the Dublin commuter belt, combined with a host of leisure amenities and a village-style feel, Greystones commands higher property prices than elsewhere in the Garden County.
While you may get more bang for your buck south and west of Wicklow, this town is a lot closer to Dublin than Dunlavin.
With a floor area of 1,114 sq ft, No170 Heathervue is a three-bed semi in which an extension almost doubled the size of the original kitchen and dining room to create 323 sq ft of contemporary, open-plan living space at the rear of the house.
It has a living room and guest WC downstairs, three bedrooms and a new family bathroom upstairs, double-glazed windows throughout and a C3 BER.
