Extended family home

Buyers in search of a family home in Bray might consider 15 Elgin Heights, a three-bedroom semi-detached family home that has been extended and reconfigured by the current owners. No 15 now includes a kitchen extension, an additional shower room with guest lavatory on the ground floor and an attic conversion. The living room features an open fireplace with brick surround and spans the full width of the house. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single, plus a family bathroom. The attic room could work well as a home office. Elgin Heights is 2.5km from Bray town centre, where the new Florentine Shopping Centre and Stella cinema complex are due to open on the main street later this year.

Art Deco on the seafront

There is very little in the way of Art Deco architecture in Ireland, so this 1920s terraced house on the seafront in Bray is an unusual and interesting prospect. 'Aisling' has three bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a family bathroom, with 87sqm of living space in total. The views out to sea are spectacular, taking in everything from Dalkey Island in the north to Bray Head in the south. Bray Harbour is adjacent, and the famous Victorian Promenade, leading to the Cliff Walk from Bray Head to Greystones, is outside the door. Secluded patios and a garage for off-street parking are handy on sunny summer days when the town gets busy. Salty dogs will never want to leave, but for those who have to head to the city to earn a crust, the Dart is a few minute's walk.

Grand country mansion

Violet Hill is a neo-gothic Victorian mansion designed by William Fogarty in the 1860s that, for many years, was the seat of the Darley-Millar family before being divided into self-contained wings. What's for sale now is the central section and great hall of the historic house, a protected structure that sits on its own plot of 3.3 acres. A tree-lined avenue leads off Herbert Road, just off the N11. The house runs to 535sqm, with all the grand proportions, decorative plasterwork and period features you could hope for in a property of this age. There are splendid reception rooms, and a total of six bedrooms and three bathrooms, including an almost self-contained apartment that could be used by staff or extended family. The gardens are charming.
