Key Bray refurbishment property attracts quick sale




A Bray refurbishment property offering excellent potential on a secluded site overlooking the Dargle Valley has been snapped up after less than a month on the market.

Although in obvious need of refurbishment, a sale has already been agreed for St. Clare’s, Dargle Lane, Bray, for a figure considerably in excess of the €375,000 asking price.

According to selling agents Dooley Auctioneers, the attractive price, together with the size and location of the five bedroomed bungalow – 2700 square feet tucked away in a secluded woodland setting on the outskirts of Bray – attracted keen interest from a number of potential buyers who were quick to spot its potential.

“Although in need of considerable refurbishment as a result of lying vacant for some time the underlying structural condition is good,” says Gabriel Dooley. “The strong interest confirmed our view the property has huge potential and that, for a buyer with vision, refurbishment properties are a very cost effective way create a dream home, either  to sell to market or to live in.”

Combining single and two-storey accommodation, in its current state the property comprises a spacious kitchen/dining area, two large living areas and five well-proportioned bedrooms. However, it also holds out all the exciting possibilities of a blank canvas refurbishment by redesigning the layout and rebuilding the interior rooms in accordance with a new owner’s individual preferences and tastes. As a further indication of the property’s underlying structural soundness, it has a surprisingly high C3 BER rating.

St. Clare’s retains many of its original features, including a large fitted kitchen, bathroom fittings and timbered pine ceiling in the kitchen/dining area. The house is set in a large garden in a secluded site on rising wooded ground overlooking the Dargle Valley, with a backdrop of mature trees on sloping ground to the rear.

Yet thanks to its location just a short distance from the N11, it’s just a few minutes’ drive from the centre of Bray and all the schools, shops, services, sporting facilities and recreational amenities the town has to offer. Close proximity to the N11 also puts it within good commuting distance to Dublin and the many attractions of the North Wicklow region.
