Martello Terrace needs no introduction standing proud at the north end of Bray s magnificent esplanade seafront, moments from the harbour that has charmed visitors and residence for generations. No.8 is a characterful end terrace period home which was extensively and sympathetically refurbished keeping many of the original features such as fireplaces, sash windows, shutters and decorative coving intact whilst adding modern day luxuries. With sea views from both the front and rear of the property one cannot wish for more.
Built in 1860 at the height of Bray s popularity as a Victorian coastal resort, one cannot fail to see the love that was poured into this home by the current family who have occupied the property since the mid-1970 s. Taking full advantage of this list the peaceful views over the beach towards Bray to the front and over the harbour to the rear. The light filled rooms are laid out over several levels, an impressive reception hall leads through to a drawing room to the front of the property with serine views, decorative plaster work and feature fireplace. The dining room to the rear has a large sash window overlooking the garden and was previously used as a bedroom. Down a couple of steps leads through to a cosy family room with solid fuel burning stove, in turn this leads to a modern kitchen/breakfast room with a bright dual aspect and access to the rear garden. Off the kitchen is a utility space and a full bathroom.
Coming upstairs to the first return there is a very large contemporary shower room that is fully tiled and incorporates the shelved hot-press. The elegant room proportions continue to a fine double room to overlooking the harbour and decorative period fireplace. The larger bedroom would have originally been drawing room of this property and has French doors out to a large balcony; the perfect place to soak in the sun and sea air while enjoying a coffee. Alighting the stairs again to the second return where there is another double bedroom with original exposed beams and large sash window. Next to this is a shower room and to the front of the property two further double bedrooms both of which enjoy sea views.
Outside the property enjoys a communal gated garden to the front with off street parking. To the rear of this fine home is a patio garden with large storage shed and rear access. This suntrap is a private space in which to enjoy the evening sunshine.
Martello Terrace benefits from a unique and convenient setting in one of the best and most desirable locations, within a few minutes walk to Bray Main Street & Town Centre, the DART station, and the seafront, giving future buyers the perfect mix between the convenience of an established community and the peace of seaside living. The town centre has a plethora of shops, good restaurants & bars. The vibrant seafront offers a range of cafes, bars and restaurants and its mile long promenade water sports and opportunities for a leisurely stroll in a wonderful marine aspect. South of the promenade is Bray Head and the popular cliff walk to Greystones and Kilruddery House & Gardens. Bray is a vibrant and bustling seaside town approx. 22km south of Dublin City Centre and acknowledged as the gateway to the garden county of Ireland . Excellent public transport links (DART and Dublin Bus) and easy access to the N11/M11 and M50 road network provides an easy commute to Dublin, Dublin airport (40 minute drive) and beyond. Bray also offers a choice of excellent primary and secondary schools, a selection of sports and leisure facilities including golf, tennis and other sporting clubs, and the Mermaid Theatre. The new Florentine Shopping complex with Stella cinema, which is due for completion later this year, will be a great addition to the area.
