Church Road Development /Investment, Greystones, Co. Wicklow

€1,500,000 - Asking Price|356 sqm approx

This carefully assembled town centre holding in an architectural conservation area on Greystones’ main commercial thoroughfare has much to commend it, representing possibly the last significant high street infill redevelopment opportunity enjoying a prime retail pitch just metres from the DART station where household-name neighbouring traders range from AIB, PTSB, Paddy Power, BOI, Insomnia, to Kilkenny Group, O’Brien’s Wines, Supervalu, Sam McCauley’s and Boots Pharmacies; plus the iconic Happy Pear.

Greystones is witnessing solid expansion and population growth with the resumption of major residential development set to deliver 800 new households over the short term, rising to in excess of well over 1,000 in the medium, creating 1,500 longer-term; and this has already become evident in the low retail vacancy rate, echoing other high net worth coastal communities Dalkey and Malahide. Particulars of the property elements follow, but the best way to evaluate this unique opportunity is to visit Greystones and watch the dynamic on and around Church Road, midweek, evenings and weekends.

Caoindruim, Russian Village, Kilquade, Greystones, Co. Wicklow

€1,350,000 - Asking Price|5 Bedrooms, 308 sqm approx

Caoindruim is a traditional Russian-Village home extended with flair, while retaining character, in an idyllic lush garden setting. Kilquade is a hamlet at the gateway to the Garden County, a short distance south from Greystones, characterised by its pretty church. The brainchild of a Russian emigre who in the last century created a community of Dacha-style houses now known as The Russian Village, this exclusive location is sought after and appreciated by discerning buyers.

Caoindruim is really special; good enough for the late former president Cearbhall O’ Dalaigh to call “home” before being the base for two corporate executive owners and now coming to the market for the first time in a decade: it retains oodles of character- atmospheric decorative plasterwork, and latch doors; happily combined with modern amenity in the shape of a custom kitchen, luxury bathrooms and a setting of the utmost privacy.

A central core comprising the original house with its gallery hall and traditional sitting room is complemented, first by an impressive purpose built bedroom wing to the south; then by a two-storey block comprising family room, boot room/utility, and integrated carport to the north. There are four more bedrooms upstairs, overlooking the grounds and lending versatility and choice to an already impressive home minutes’ drive from world-class Druids Glen Golf Resort, and so convenient to the N11/M11/M50 corridor making Dublin international airport possible in less than an hour’s drive.

Commuters have further scope, being close to the N11/M11/M50 corridor.

Site @ Abhaile, North Beach, Greystones, Co. Wicklow

€295,000 - Asking Price|

“Abhaile”, as its name implies “as Gaeilge”, was home for many years to one of Greystones stalwart characters and daily swimmers; sadly deceased, hence the opportunity for a new owner to try new things using the existing shell to renovate and extend, or more adventurously treating this as a “brown field” site.

What a wonderful location this is! For years apparently languishing in the shade of some of the town’s maritime period homes, but on the cliff walk and approach to the old Darcy’s field football ground; now coming into its own with the super new marina village development next door making this a smart and sophisticated maritime location in which to create a stunning home with some flair and imagination.

“Abhaile” is all boarded up now to protect its structural integrity, but one can see its potential through just walking the site.

Seanchara, Strand Road, Bray, Co. Wicklow

€1,399,950 - Asking Price|5 Bedrooms, 346 sqm approx

Featuring elegant principal high-ceilinged rooms with ornate plasterwork and fine fireplaces, this handsome seafront villa is deceptively spacious and offers a versatile opportunity for home-with-income as well as development potential, subject to consent, on its large garden.

Standing on c. 0.36 acres of prime Esplanade frontage, Seanchara was built in the 19th century when the coming of the railway earned Bray the sobriquet of “The Brighton of Ireland”; a more genteel time, perhaps when wealthy merchants and professionals built summer homes by the seaside in the shadow of Bray Head at the gateway to the “Garden County”.

Today, Bray’s vibrant community has much to offer: shore anglers and sailors alike can enjoy the harbour, while a bracing walk along the Promenade can often lead to exploring the renowned cliff walk to nearby Greystones. There are the gardens and Saturday Farmers’ Market to enjoy at nearby Kilruddery, with Enniskerry’s Powerscourt Estate and Avoca Handweavers in Kilmacanogue to offer variety in leisure times. Active tennis, athletic and sporting clubs cater for many enthusiasts, while golfers are well spoilt for choice locally between Woodbrook; Bray, Old Conna; Dun Laoghaires’ course at Ballyman; and Powerscourt all to hand.

This fairytale neo-gothic Victorian mansion house dating from the early 1860’s and designed by William Fogarty, comprises the principal wing and great hall of one of Co. Wicklow’s historic houses, seat of the Darley-Millar family until the 1970’s when, having been creatively subdivided into self-contained wings, this fine main section evolved as an entity in its own right on a plot of circa 3.3 acres. Approached by way of a tree lined avenue and cast iron gates, just off Herbert Road at the Kilcroney side of Bray within easy reach of DART and citybound bus services, and only a couple of gear – changes from the N 11 / M 11 / M50 corridor.
