5 Eglinton Road Bray
|Area: 1,990 sq ft||Bedrooms: 5||Price: €545,000|
|Type: End-of-terrace period house||Location: Commercial heart of Bray|
Currently used as commercial office space, this spacious, end-of-terrace Victorian period property offers outstanding potential for restoration to its original purpose as a stylish residential townhouse within easy walking distance of all the amenities and services Bray town centre has to offer.
Comprising almost 2,000 square feet of space divided into a series of offices over four separate floors, there’s obvious potential here (subject to planning regulation) to convert the property in a large four or five-bedroomed family home with kitchen, bathrooms, receptions, ancillary and service rooms to match. There are also good sized gardens to the front and rear.
Alternatively, the property also lends itself to conversion into stylish modernised apartments, perfectly positioned to enjoy the best of town centre living.
The property enjoys an exceptionally convenient location off Bray’s busy Quinsboro Road, just a short stroll from the town’s Main Street and right next to a new shopping centre currently under construction at the Florentine Centre.
Positioned within easy walking distance of Bray DART station and across the road from the public library, Eglinton Road is home to a mix of residential and business properties.
The building has two access points from the street – one via a short flight of steps through the Victorian front door and the second by stone steps leading to the lower level. A laneway to the side provides access to the rear of the property, along with private, off-street parking.
The current owner has undertaken a number of improvements including renewal of joints, frameworks and part of the roof, rewiring, replumbing, replastering and the installation of CCTV cameras.
The property was originally constructed circa 1865 as one of a terrace of five residential town houses. According to the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage, when taken together, the terrace of which it forms part “make the west side of Eglinton Road one of the most complete mid to later Victorian groupings in the whole of Bray.”
5 Eglinton Road Bray still retains many of its original period features including ceiling coving, cornices and roses, exterior carvings, fireplaces, tiling and high ceilings typical of the Victorian era.
