This unique two storey property has been tastefully refurbished in traditional cottage style throughout and boasts many special features which provide it with a sense of old world charm while providing all the facilities one would expect from a modern family home.
The theme of the house is set right from when you enter the gates of the property when you are greeted with abundance of fragrances from the wild flower garden plants, climbing roses, clematis and jasmine, this leads onto the large Front Patio and Garden Area which due to the elevated nature of the property enjoys the sun all day long.
The traditional charming tiled front porch leads into the large Living/Dining Room, this beautiful room gives all the feel and atmosphere of a traditional cottage. The room benefits from solid oak flooring, custom built-in furniture and storage and a brand new “Clear View” wood burning stove. The woodwork in the property is decorated in Farrow and Ball fresh green & cream shades and this really compliments the white walls and oak flooring, this feature is evident in this room in particular, this styling also stands out on the ledge and brace wooden doors which feature throughout the house. The theme of the house is complimented by the fitted Victorian style radiator covers which are a feature in many rooms
The bespoke Kitchen has been fitted with Victorian Salvage Company handmade kitchen units all with oak tops, these compliment the oaks shelves by the same company which sits above the Belfast Sink. The Kitchen which overlooks the front of the house is bathed in natural light and enjoys stunning views out over Bray Head. This fantastic Kitchen comes with a Chrome range style cooker with 5 gas rings and large electric oven including Chrome extractor fan and all appliances one would expect from a modern family home.
One of the real attractions of this Bray View is the detail and styling put into both Bathrooms during the renovation. They are both styled to the same exemplary standard and feature Albion Bath Company Suites including freestanding roll top Victorian style claw-footed bath with suspended chrome shower rail and wide rose-head shower. There are also high cistern style w.c’s, chrome flushpipes, pull chains with porcelain handles, oak seats. The walls are wooden panelled to waist height with chrome wall-mounted rail radiators.
The Master Bedroom was previously two rooms and was converted into one large spacious room during renovations which covers the length of the original house this great room enjoys breathtaking views over Bray Head, Bray and the Sugarloaf Mountains. The deep internal ledges and crafted fireplace again add to the farmhouse cottage feel which the owners tried to achieve with the refurbishment, this room also features custom made wood panelled free standing fixed wardrobes which offset perfectly against the rest of the room.
The other three bedrooms are all of a generous proportions with solid oak wide plank flooring with an abundance of fitted wardrobe and shelving space as well as access to the large attic for any extra storage needs
As well as the four bedrooms the house also has two other rooms currently being used as a playroom and an office which provide flexible accommodation for a variety of different uses including extra bedrooms if so required.
Beyond the picturesque courtyard at the rear of the property there are two storage outhouses for any outside storage needs, there are wooden steps which lead up to a large plateau garden which provides idyllic panoramic views over the whole of the surrounding area. The back wall of this garden area is the official original Wicklow –Dublin border and the property would have been one of the original farmhouses in the region. Newspapers from Patricks Day 1882 were discovered in the walls on renovations and these have been framed and retained by the owners providing a snapshot of a bygone age, this little piece of history gives just a taste of everything this unique home has to offer.
