Live at the seaside in bungalow bliss
Hamilton Hill at Barnageeragh Cove, Skerries, Co Dublin
For some, Skerries will conjure up nostalgic memories of childhood daytrips to the seaside and summers spent in mobile homes. But the coastal town has also become a hub for developers catering for families seeking affordable homes within the confines of Co Dublin.
The newest development on the block is Hamilton Hill at Barnageeragh Cove, a Winsac Ltd scheme launched in 2016 that's a short walk from the beach.
A slew of phases followed, including a final launch of seven three-bed bungalows that was released in January. One of those bungalows is still on the market: it measures 1,262 sq ft and costs €430,000. Externally, the contemporary-style house has granite sills to the large floor-to-ceiling windows that maximise the natural light flooding into the bungalow, as well as self-coloured plaster render.
There are two designated parking spaces and a pathway leading up to the grey front door. The internal layout is open plan, and the fitted kitchen comes with an integrated fridge-freezer, oven hob, and dishwasher. The A3-rated home has a condensing boiler for heating and PV panels.
Hamilton Hill is set on an elevated site and incorporates a blend of hard and soft landscaping, a cycle track and winding pathways. It is a short walk to Skerries train station with its 20 rail services a day to Dublin. The M1 is a 15-minute drive away. Viewings are by appointment.
