This is a unique property with all the best of old world seaside village charm and all the convenience of modern city living combined, in an outstanding location. Occupying a prominent position along the Strand Road, overlooking the Bray Seafront with unparalleled sea views from all aspects, Auburn House is a period dwelling in the historic Victorian Promenade on the Esplanade where the Oscar Wilde family owned several properties. Auburn House was thoughtfully and sympathetically converted into five individual homes and now boasts some of the finest seaside living potential on this part of the Irish coast in the bustling town of Bray, also conveniently located for comfortable commute to Dublin and the excellent schools of Bray and South Dublin. No. 5 is a three-bedroom freehold penthouse apartment located on the third floor, commanding a unique vantage point, boasting unrivalled views of the sea directly ahead, Bray Head to the south, the Sugarloaf Mountains to the west and Dalkey Island to the north, with Howth visible in the backdrop across Dublin Bay. Internally, there is a breathtaking view from each room, and the split-level accommodation is exceptionally bright and deceptively large, measuring 90sqm approx. Entering the building, the third floor is accessed via a communal stairwell. Passing through the hall door, at entry level, there is a spacious double bedroom with carpeted flooring, a built-in wardrobe, and a shower room on the opposite side of the hall serves this bedroom as an ‘en suite’. To the left, stairs rise to the landing which is at the midpoint of the apartment. The equipped kitchen sits to the front and contains wood flooring and a range of base level units. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dual aspect living/dining room featuring carpeted flooring and 180-degree views: this is the perfect place to enjoy the morning sunrise each day, or indeed the annual air show. To the upstairs rear of the apartment there are two single bedrooms, both including carpeted floors, one with an built-in closet, and a fully tiled family bathroom and utility cupboard with washer/dryer completes the layout. Externally, to the front, Number 5 is provided with its own designated parking space while to the rear, a large secure lockup owned by this apartment caters for additional ground floor storage requirements. The location of Auburn House needs little introduction. The Strand Road has long been home to many musicians, artist and writers whose creative residents here are spoilt for choice with endless amenities on their doorstep. In the immediate vicinity is the popular Seafront Promenade with its choice of gastro pubs, restaurants, wine bars, and ice cream parlours. For outdoor enthusiasts, leisurely walks can be enjoyed up Bray Head and out along the cliff walk to Greystones. Powerscourt, Kilruddery Desmesne and the Festina Lente Walled Gardens are nearby for weekend farmers market lunches and evening dining in the countryside. Golf and tennis clubs abound. Sailing schools, GAA and basketball clubs, fitness centres, martial arts, dance and language schools, art galleries, and live music are all on the doorstep. The Town Centre is a short distance on foot and is host to a plethora of shops, schools, and cafes. Bray is a thriving town within easy reach of both Dublin and the ‘garden of Ireland’, straddling the Dublin South border and the Wicklow North border, with aspects of the city and the country all immediately to hand, including some of the best schools in the country in the vicinity. The area is served with an efficient public transport network of buses: namely the 145 and 155 (with direct service to University College Dublin and Trinity College and their feeder primary and secondary schools), the 45A, 84 and the Aircoach connecting to Dublin airport. The N11 is a short drive via private transport, and this acts as a gateway to the M50 and other primary routes across the island of Ireland. Early viewing is highly recommended.
