“Celada” 3 Backlion Springs, Greystones, Co. Wicklow
“Celada” 3 Backlion Springs, Greystones, Co. Wicklow
“Celada” is an exemplary specimen of an imposing detached family residence on an elevated site taking full advantage of the surrounding sea and mountain views. The 260 sq. metres (approx.) of elegant and spacious accommodation includes 6 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms. Nicely positioned within a small gated enclave of four individually designed properties, of similar calibre, this unique family home has been kept somewhat of a hidden secret… until now…..
The current owners built “Celada” back in 2003 adhering to a design philosophy which showcases light drenched open spaces enhanced by high ceilings and neutral colour palettes with lots of easy access to the gardens from the living quarters. The tall windows and doors entice the natural light through creating a bright and breezy ambience throughout.
The truly distinctive nature of this property is instantly evident on approach due to the originality and integrity of the contemporary design. An attractive veranda style entrance porch and large picture windows are just some of the features which unsurpass Irish standards of the quintessential family home.
An excellent balance exists here between bedroom and living accommodation with the master bedroom boasting that much coveted walk in wardrobe/dressing room and large luxury tumbled marble ensuite bathroom. The jewel in the crown here is the view from the balcony out towards the sea, taking in the Victorian “La Touche hotel” and on a clear day, the mythical mountains of Wales.
A truly enviable lifestyle is on offer as one can walk to Greystones town centre which is host to the Dart station for easy access to the city centre. Also, closeby and within walking distance are primary and secondary schools, award winning restaurants, trendy cafes, boutiques and speciality stores.
There is an array of leisure and sporting options with the GAA, Rugby, Golf, Tennis clubs and Shoreline Swimming pool and running track all nearby. The north & south beaches, harbour and state of the art Marina offer plenty of water based activities such as sailing, kayaking, rowing, paddleboarding and of course, sea swimming. Locals and out of towners alike seem to be enjoying, now more than ever, the simplicity of a stunning sunrise, down by Greystones Cove.
