Buying a new house is one of the biggest expenses you are likely to face in your lifetime. While you want to make sure that the place you decide to call home is perfect, there can sometimes be an endless list of costs associated with turning it into the dream house for you and your family. On top of the mortgage comes snag and fix lists, or the costs of simply making changes to turn it into your ideal living space. Once you move in, the first bills soon arrive, and only then will you realise how much your heating and electricity is costing you. That’s why opting for one of the new houses in the SeaGreen development in Greystones is a perfect solution.
Built to the highest standards, these great new houses for sale in Greystones offer tremendous value, and allow you to avoid many of the costs associated with buying a new home, meaning you can save more towards enjoying your life.
One major cost-saver is the fact that many of the houses in the SeaGreen development qualify for the Government’s Help To Buy Rebate. If purchasing a three-bedroom Portland house, qualifying first-time buyers can need just €20,500 and expect to make repayments of just €1,382 per month. If buying a four-bedroom Wyndham house, a deposit of just €25,500 and repayments of €1,553 may be needed.
This means that the sometimes unachievable mortgage deposits many first-time buyers face can be made much more manageable, and these lovely homes are much more affordable than you might think, so you can realise your dream of owning a great house in a perfect location.

Having taken on a mortgage, the last thing you need is sky-high bills coming in your brand new door, but at SeaGreen, all of the houses are built to the highest possible levels for energy efficiency, with an A2 BER Rating, as John the on-site electrician explains in this video. This means the cost of heating your home will be kept to a minimum.
The thermostatically controlled radiators are heated by a high-efficiency A-rated natural gas boiler, while an efficient heat pump uses waste air from bathrooms to produce continuous hot water. Solar panels provide free electricity to heat water too, while each house is kept comfortable all year round for a minimal cost due to the triple-glazed windows and top-quality insulation.
Even in new builds, buyers can face a list of fixes that require attention, and once these are done, any defects that later start to appear may be left to the homeowner to tackle, and pay for. However, all of the houses at SeaGreen come with a ten-year Homebond Latent Defects Insurance warranty, so in the unlikely event that something does happen, there is comfort in knowing that there is comprehensive cover for defects insurance, structural insurance and a five-year Homebond cover for mechanical and electrical, water and smoke ingress.
Making your new home your own is another major cost many people have to face, and it can take years to truly turn your house into the place you dreamed of as other expenses take over. These costs can be avoided at SeaGreen too.
An expert team is available on-site to take care of any redesigns or adaptations, so you can be sure that when you move into your house, it will be just as you wanted it to be, and you won’t have to think about chipping away at your savings piece by piece to furnish your home to meet your personal tastes.
A great bonus for anybody buying one of the Bellevue homes is that they can avail of a free 8-hour consultation with interior and garden designer Eily Roe, who will provide ideas and advice on making the most of your home, not just for when you move in, but for the many years to come.
With many of these great houses eligible for the Help To Buy Rebate, high-spec design that keeps energy bills low and an on-site team who can help personalise your home ahead of moving in, the SeaGreen development in Greystones offers many ways to keep the cost of buying your new home down.
