Nurney, Family Country Living in an Urban Setting. One of Old Ballybracks longest standing period family homes. A once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase this unique early twentieth century house extending over 244.91m2. Characterised by its fantastic location, well-appointed rooms, high ceilings, and many other original features, Nurney is impressive in size and character, offering the opportunity to make this fine property your family home. Well hidden behind mature trees, we invite you to explore. As you cross the threshold of the entrance, you are immediately drawn into a unique and charming period home. The light fills the hall through the original stained-glass door. The current owners have lovingly maintained the original features of the house since purchasing it during 1987. With a welcoming hallway extending the full depth of the house, on either side are two well apportioned reception rooms with open fireplaces and large bay windows. As you progress past the kitchen on the right, and the understairs pantry on your left, you will find a modern shower room, office, and dual purpose study / fifth bedroom with direct access to the garden at the rear of the house. The garden provides the ingredients for those who love to cook, especially with the luxury of an Aga, which is simply, the heart of the home. Off the kitchen lies what was originally the maids room, and is now a hardworking utility room with under floor cellar. The kitchen also leads to a cosy den and dining / library area, with direct access to the patio. Upstairs comprises master bedroom and three well-proportioned double bedrooms. The family bathroom has been upgraded to include underfloor heating and storage with a modern design. A house for all occasions, the garden is truly for all seasons. This oasis is full of surprises. Its easy to loose oneself in the tranquility of this garden. From the apple trees to the kitchen garden, the secret tunnel to the grassy lawn, this hidden gem is a haven for children and adults alike who love to bird watch and chase bees, and for all who love nature. The wide side entrance leads to a purpose built detached single storey dwelling, currently being used as a garage. Fully plumbed, wired and spacious, this building has potential to be reconfigured for a dwelling with a potential rental income. Local Area Spoilt for choice, Killiney, Shankill and Bray beaches are all within easy access. You can walk to Bray when the tide is out apparently. Stop for a coffee at Fred and Nancys on Killiney beach after a swim. Kilruddery House, Bray will tempt those who love to escape for a great day out.
