AS THE YEARS pass, children move out and owners feel that the family home has served its purpose, many people look to downsize – but until recently it was hard to find the right location to do so.  

However, with new developments of apartments – like Glenveagh Homes’ Marina Village in Greystones, Co Wicklow – cropping up in and around the capital, the market for downsizers has improved significantly.

Trading the home that you may have lived in for decades for something else brings with it the knowledge of exactly what you’re looking for in your next property – and new builds can tick many of these boxes, from contemporary design to A-ratings for energy efficiency. There’s also the opportunity to choose a space and layout that works for you and your needs now, which can often be very different to what you were looking for when you were last house-hunting.

Seaside locations close to the city, like Greystones, are often desirable for downsizers as they can offer beautiful surroundings, a strong sense of community and amenities within walking distance.  

The new Marina Village development is located just steps from the coast and Greystones Harbour, while there are a number of beautiful beaches and walks close by, including the popular cliff walk to Bray. 

Originally a small fishing village, today Greystones is home to a wealth of amenities yet still retains its original charm and sense of community. 

The town is an easy 20-minute walk away from the development and includes a selection of cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques, including Donnybrook Fair and The Happy Pear. Golf enthusiasts will be within easy access of Greystones Golf Club and Wicklow Golf Academy, while Bray Golf Club is a 10-minute drive away.

For days when you want to trade calm surroundings for the buzz of the capital, Greystones benefits from multiple transport links to Dublin city. The town 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 50-minute journey to Connolly Station. 

With a thriving community, beautiful surroundings and many local amenities, Marina Village offers residents an idyllic way of life by the sea, while still being able to return to the hustle and bustle of the city whenever they choose.

Apartments at Marina Village are currently on view by virtual or private appointment. Any enquiries, please contact letting agent Dillon Marshall here or call 01 4967574.
