Buying your new home is one of the biggest decisions you will ever have to make, and you need to be sure that it is the right one for your family’s needs. There are many things to consider and many things to look out for in a new development to make sure it is perfect for you, and will become more than just a house, but a home for life.
Here are some of the things you need to look out for.
Space to grow
If you have children or are planning to start or grow your family, you will need to know you’re your home can accommodate each family member comfortably, and that there is room for further additions.
Whether you choose the three-bed Portland or the four-bed Wyndham and Bellevue house, each of the homes at SeaGreen in Greystones offer plenty of space for your growing family. A generous living room area will give you all the space you need to relax and spend time together, while the large hall leads into a spacious kitchen and dining room with its own separate utility room.
For convenience, each home also features a boot room at the entrance, so you can avoid muddy little feet running through the house.
Importantly for a growing family, there is also a downstairs WC, as well as the main bathroom and an en-suite in the master bedroom, so you won’t need to worry about queueing to get into the shower, no matter how many children you have.
The large bedrooms offer both comfort and space for every member of the family to make their own.
These large living spaces are made possible by the immaculately designed interiors that enhance the space of all the rooms.
If you choose one of the Bellevue homes, you can avail of a free 8-hour consultation with interior and garden designer Eily Roe, who will provide ideas, design and advice for how to make the most out of your new home.
Buying a new home is a major investment, and the last thing you want when you move into it is the prospect of high energy and utility bills, so energy efficiency is very important. At SeaGreen Greystones, all of the homes have an A2 BER Rating, so you can know the heating costs of your home will be kept to a minimum.
The state of the art heating system includes thermostatically controlled radiators heated by a high-efficiency A-rated natural gas boiler, while hot water is provided by a high-efficiency heat pump that uses waste air from bathrooms to produce continuous hot water: no waiting for the water to get hot enough for a bath or to wash the dishes.
The solar panels provide free electricity to heat water and keep your bills low, while top-quality insulation is provided by the triple-glazed windows and high-spec spray foam that keeps the house warm and comfortable all year round.
You can see why SeaGreen Greystones is so energy-efficient in this video featuring Bill Quigley of NuTech Renewables who specialise in low-energy housing and have worked with Wood Group to develop these heating and insulation systems.
While all of the houses at SeaGreen are obviously built to the highest standards, using the best materials, you will want to make sure that your home is both secure and comfortable. One benefit of a new build home is that it is far less likely to have any snags or problems that need to be fixed, but having a warranty is important for peace of mind.
Every home at SeaGreen comes with 10-Year Homebond Latent Defects Insurance, giving comprehensive cover for defects insurance, structural insurance and loss of deposit, as well as 5-Year Homebond cover for mechanical and electrical, water and smoke ingress.
While all of the homes available at SeaGreen Greystones are built and designed to the highest quality, we know that each person is an individual with their own specific tastes and preferences, which is why we employ an expert and friendly team on-site to take care of any redesign, changes or adaptations you want to make.
