If you are looking for an exciting refurbishment / development opportunity, then this is one not to be missed! DNG is excited to present The Old Rectory Cottage to the market. The detached cottage which dates back to c.1880 has been vacant for approximately 13 years and comes to the market in need of complete modernisation and refurbishment in order to return the property to its former glory. This detached 3 bedroom property offers its new owners a wonderful opportunity to create a contemporary and bespoke home located in this much sought-after and very convenient location close to all the amenities that the wonderful seaside town of Bray has to offer. The generous grounds of just under a fifth of an acre offer superb extension potential should a larger property be required, or a redevelopment opportunity could be sought in order to create a number of units on the site, subject to PP of course. The current accommodation of approximately 147 Sq M comprises an open plan living dining room with a large stone fireplace, exposed timber ceiling beams and two bay windows overlooking the front garden. To the rear of the cottage is the kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs there is a very large 3rd bedroom with an en-suite shower room. The cottage is set back from the Herbert Road and a long driveway leads to the cottage. Mature trees and shrubs border the two sides of the front garden which enjoys a sunny east facing aspect. To the rear is a walled garden with a westerly aspect. Contact DNG for further information or to arrange a personal inspection of the property.
