Four on the market: in Bray
A selection of four properties currently on the market in the coastal town of Bray.
Kylemore, King Edward Road
€1.175m HJ Byrne (01) 286 2113
Kylemore dates from 1905, and when it was built it was more or less on its own on the northeastern side of King Edward Road. Since then it's been joined by neighbours on King Edward Lawn, but it's still quite secluded, thanks in large part to its beautifully cultivated 0.58-acre garden, full of rare trees and fragrant shrubs. The house is 3,767 sq ft with six bedrooms on the first floor (one en-suite). The ground floor has a drawing room, a dining room and a study, all with fireplaces, and a den next to the kitchen.
Belle Vue, Putland Road
€495k Sherry FitzGerald Bray (01) 286 6630
Belle Vue is one of a row of 1930s cottages facing south at Putland Road, about 10 minutes' walk from Bray's promenade and 20 minutes from the station. It's 904 sq ft but it may be possible to extend it if you don't mind losing some of pretty back garden. It has two reception rooms and two bedrooms - or one reception room and three bedrooms - as well as a galley kitchen, and there are original fireplaces and high ceilings. The front garden has close-planted flower beds and a driveway for parking.
Clonfert, 37 Raheen Park
€650k DNG Bray (01) 286 7625
It would be an easy walk down to Bray's seafront from 37 Raheen Park - downhill all the way. Thanks to its elevated position it has long views over the town and the sea, and the house has been designed to take advantage of them from the bay windows of the upstairs living room. This level - entrance level - also has the kitchen and the dining room, which opens into a conservatory, along with three bedrooms. There's a fourth bedroom upstairs, and a garage at the bottom of the house. Total dimensions are 1,851 sq ft.
St Bricin’s House, Herbert Road
€350k Colliers (01) 633 3700
You'll have to wait just over two years if you want to convert St Bricin's House into a family home. It's in office use at present, with a 10-year commercial lease in place dating from December 2008. It has a long history as a commercial building, having previously been a dispensary from the late 19th century, and it's just over 100 metres from the Main Street. It's a two-storey granite building measuring 2,229 sq ft, with offices, a kitchen and bathrooms. The front and back gardens are both paved, with parking out the back.
