Victorian home minutes from main street in Bray
Published 07/12/2012 | 05:00
St Paul's Lodge is an attractively presented Victorian house on its own grounds at Herbert Road, Bray, Co Wicklow.
Extending to 191.7sqm (2063 sq ft) it comes with four bedrooms and three reception rooms.
Originally built in 1904, it was extended 12 years ago when a conservatory and a small extension to the kitchen was added and it has also benefited from upgrading. Its asking price has been reduced from €725,000 to €695,000.
Its location on Herbert Road makes it easily accessible to both the N11 and Bray's main street.
While the elevated site and detached design lend it an imposing ambience, inside the house is very much a family-style home with rooms of manageable proportions.
Off the entrance hall there are three reception rooms: a small dining room and family room to the front and a larger, more formal living room to the back.
Leisure space also includes the conservatory which opens on to two patios as well as on to the large, sunny rear garden.
The kitchen is also directly accessible from the front of the house which eliminates the need to drag the shopping through the house.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles and the fourth is a single.
An attractive feature is that most rooms, including most of the bedrooms, are dual aspect, with either tall sash windows or box bays looking out on to the gardens surrounding the house. The bathroom has a period-style roll-top bath.
Tall trees surround the perimeter of the well kept mature gardens with large lawns to the rear. Consequently the house enjoys privacy despite being so close to the town centre.
There is off-street parking for three cars, but as the front garden is big, that space could be enlarged if needed.
