Leacaban, Putland Road, Bray, Co. Wicklow

€550,000 - Asking Price For Sale by Private Treaty 108 sqm approx

Description

It is Sherry FitzGerald’s pleasure to bring this bay-windowed 1920’s family residence to market, enjoying sea views against a scenic backdrop of Bray Head; located on the elevated section of Putland Road, arguably one of Bray’s most sought-after addresses, opposite Queen of Peace Church and minutes’ walking distance to a choice of primary and secondary schools, Leacaban faces south towards Bray Head and its principal rooms are suffused with light while remaining private, sheltered by mature hedgerows and a wall with fine hardwood gates.

Off-street parking for several cars and a wide side entrance leading to its almost 90 ft. sun-soaked rear garden complement the delightfully well-proportioned living accommodation presented in first-class order. On reaching the entrance hall, one steps into the bay-windowed sitting room with its welcoming open fireplace, arched through to a dining room with double French doors to an evening sun-trap patio area, and fitted with a gas-fired coal-effect stove. Glazed double doors invite one to the eat-in family kitchen, well fitted, and featuring a vaulted ceiling over the dining area also enjoying double doors to the rear garden. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and a contemporary retrofitted luxury bathroom; and the floored roofspace lends itself to future conversion, if desired.

Hardwood electric gates access the tarmacademed front garden capable of holding up to five cars off street; sheltered from the road by a wall and established hedgerow, and complemented by mature shrubs, flowering bushes, and a planter. A wide vehicular side entrance leads to the professionally landscaped c.88 ft. long lawned rear garden, a day-long suntrap, providing the keen gardener with plenty of interest, fruit trees – apple and pear – herbaceous borders; and ample room for children to play safely. Here is a combination of graveled pathways and terrace, mature bamboo screening, flower beds the length of the c.32 ft. wide rear garden; and a shed with power laid on.

Leacaban’s location could hardly be more convenient; strolling distance from bracing cliff or seafront walks along the esplanade to the harbour with its famous bar and active sailing club, a stone’s throw from several primary and secondary schools, retail outlets and leisure pursuits such as tennis, bowls, athletic sporting clubs, golf and equestrian. Commuters have plenty of choice with citybound and DART feeder buses, Aircoach Direct and Cherrywood LUAS shuttle; and easy access to the N11/M11/M50 corridor.

We confidently recommend inspection to the most discerning purchaser.
