Sea-facing homes are particularly appealing to buyers during spells of warm weather. While conditions have turned cool since the sunny Easter break, the views of the coastline and the Irish Sea from the SeaGreen Gate development in Greystones still give the scheme an edge in the market.
Wood Group Homes is building 42 properties at SeaGreen Gate's elevated site. All the homes are four-beds in a variety of styles.
There are currently six houses available at SeaGreen Gate. Prices start at €480,000 for the Wilde, a mid-terraced four-bed extending to 1,399 sq ft, and at €495,000 for The Yeats, the same size but in an end-of-terrace style.
The houses have a half-brick, half-nap render facade, complemented by string course detailing and granite to the sills of the Norwegian-made NorDan triple-glazed timber-framed windows. Inside, there is a bay window to the front living room. The kitchen units, supplied by Nolan Kitchens, are finished in a combination of white and walnut. On the first floor are two double bedrooms - one of which is ensuite - and a single bedroom. The second master ensuite on the second floor has an unusual feature in the form of a balcony-style Velux Cabrio window.
Family buyers at SeaGreen Gate won't have too far to go for the school run either. There are three schools just a short walk away. Greystones Dart station, meanwhile, is a 20-minute walk from the A2-rated homes.
The showhouse is on view by appointment.
