Top let: Grand designs on the property market
Rathmichael, Bray, Co Wicklow; Rent: €7,500 per month
A large detached house at Rathmichael near Bray in Ireland's Garden County sits on extensive grounds which the owner has clearly made the most of.
There are landscaped rolling hills, a stream with a cute wooden bridge crossing and a variety of al fresco eating areas over three patios and decking.
Gardens are lush with greenery, plenty of shrubs, flowerbeds and trees, and for a tenant who wishes to indulge their green fingers, a conservatory/greenhouse is included.
Children will be delighted with the full size playhouse over the little bridge and there is parking out front on a sweeping gravel driveway for six cars.
Inside, this modern three storey is finished in dark brick and wood to a country rustic style.
The kitchen is finished in cream units and has a wood burning stove, Rangemaster and flagstone flooring. There is a utility and WC off this and a large lounge/dining area housing a baby grand piano. There is a separate family room on this level also.
There are two 'pool rooms', one housing a pool table in a leisure area on the first floor; the other a pool of the swimming variety, complete with changing rooms and a maintenance room downstairs.
Also on the first floor are five double bedrooms (of six in total) - three ensuite - and the master suite has a lounge area with a balcony overlooking the extensive gardens.
There are two walk-in wardrobes and a Jacuzzi bath. There is a separate family bathroom here also.
On the top level is a converted attic room running the length of the house and the sixth bedroom.
The remainder of the space is completely open and would be a great 'den' for the teenagers of the house.
Outside security gates offer privacy and the agent says with its proximity to St Gerard's School and quick access to the M50 and schools in Bray and Greystones, this furnished property would suit a larger family either as a personal, or corporate let.
