MANY PEOPLE WHO live in a city can relate to the feeling of relief and relaxation that comes with leaving the hustle and bustle behind for a quiet weekend away.
But what if you could experience that feeling every day, by moving somewhere that combined convenience and calmness?
Marina Village, a new development from Glenveagh Homes, is located in the seaside village of Greystones, Co Wicklow. Originally a small fishing village, the coastal escape has grown in recent years to become a popular spot for those who want to live outside Dublin, while still being able to commute to the capital. For renters, living in Greystones can be the ideal antidote to the stress and high cost that comes with city renting.
Greystones is located a 10-minute drive from the N11 and enjoys easy access to the M50, meaning the trip to Dublin city centre can be made by car in 45 minutes. If you’d prefer to leave the car at home, the DART runs from the centre of the town and provides a 45-minute journey to Grand Canal Dock or 50 minutes to Connolly Station.
With the country slowly reopening, many of us will return to long commutes in the coming months. Those who take the bus, Luas or train to work in the capital regularly will know the struggle that can come with sitting in city centre traffic for 20 minutes while trying to get home, even if you live nearby. For Greystones residents, however, your day will start and end by the seaside.
A new addition to Greystones, Glenveagh Homes’ Marina Village development offers the convenience of living close to the city, as well as the tranquility that comes with living in a coastal town. One, two and three-bed apartments are available from €1,800 per month, while three-bed townhouses are available from €2,750.
Rather than being surrounded by the noise and hectic atmosphere of the city, the development is a short stroll from Greystones Harbour and the picturesque cliff walk to Bray. There are also a number of sandy beaches close by, making work-life balance a breeze.
Residents at Marina Village can walk to the centre of the town in less than 20 minutes, with a number of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and supermarkets here and en route, including Instagram-worthy eatery The Happy Pear, The Beach House lounge and pub, and Italian restaurant Bochelli.
Each home is designed to make the most of the surrounding sea views, with multiple picture windows and an open-plan layout. With the sea on your doorstep and the commute to the city made easy, Marina Village allows homeowners to make the most of their time every day – both at work and at home.
