*****Eligible for €50k Vacant property grant***** Dating back to c.1875, Coastguard Terrace was a detached multiple-bay two-storey coastguard station, now in use as six private dwellings. The building is constructed in semi coursed rubble granite with brick dressings. Five of the houses are entered from a rear private yard to which there is no public access. This stunning building sits on a slight rise behind the promenade and entered by a private laneway which extends across the houses. The station was converted to an army barracks in 1922 and then to private dwellings in 1925. Located on one of Bray's premier addresses, No. 4 Coastguard terrace is an elegantly appointed terraced residence of immense character and aesthetic appeal that is presented in an excellent condition. It is an appealing granite fronted set terrace set back from The Strand Road, enjoying clear views of the sea and Bray Head. In addition to the convenient setting, this characterful period residence retains many original features which include high ceilings and fireplace. Deceptively spacious, the internal accommodation measures 68sqm/732 sq.ft approx. The views, and location truly make this a unique seaside home. Passing through the front door, you enter directly into the kitchen, with an inner hallway/ cloakroom with door to the bathroom. An archway from the kitchen leads to a large dining area with staircase and double doors leading to the living room with original fireplace and spectacular views of Bray seafront and Bray head. Stairs from the dining room rise to a landing, off which are 2 double bedrooms with build in wardrobes and high ceilings and again more spectacular views of Bray seafront and beyond. Directly outside, there is a tiled area which would fit a small patio table and 2 chairs to catch the summer sun. Opposite the front door are 2 large out houses. One which houses the oil tank and boiler and has ample space for storage and could easily accommodate a utility area if desired. A second storage shed provides the opportunity to be converted to a home office and has a chimney and electricity already in place. Set back from The Strand Road, in the immediate vicinity is the wonderful seafront promenade with its choice of gastro pubs, restaurants, and ice cream parlors. For outdoor enthusiasts Bray Head and the cliff walk to Greystones can be accessed on foot in a matter of minutes. The Town Centre is within comfortable walking distance and is host to a plethora of shops, schools, and cafes. The area is served with an efficient public transport network of buses namely 145, 155, 45A, 84 and Aircoach, while Bray Dart Station is approx. 1km from the property. The N11 is a short drive by private transport, and this acts as a gateway to the M50 and other primary routes. In front of the property, there is a vehicular right of way private laneway from the Putland Road where there is parking for cars. Coastguard station enjoys a desirable setting in arguably the best location Bray has to offer.
