Description

A unique architect designed new build house with light filled floating roof. (Frank Lloyd Wright inspired.) This bespoke style elegant home is complemented by elegant surroundings on The Old Burnaby, set on about ¼ acre in a quiet cul de sac off the confluence of Burnaby and Portland Roads.

A client commissioned award winning architect Colum O’Broin and Associates to design two linked homes of exceptional appeal, together set on

the grounds of “Cedars” residence (demolished to facilitate the development); one of which is retained for his personal use, the other for sale – hence this unrivalled opportunity.

Employing a mellow brick front elevation, and painstakingly detailed to catch the light; to lend proportion and scale; to invite the garden into the house and

create a courtyard/“room outside”/terrace; all the while delivering on modern amenity while exuding certain character influenced by the arts and crafts/art deco eras, the house has been built to exacting standards and with energy efficiency in mind. Kitchen design, bathroom luxury, living and bedroom spaces all to the highest specification to delight a purchaser.

Private viewing the next door residence will be arranged for interested purchasers to see the finished “show-home”..

Brick-faced to front, other elevations are of rendered concrete block cavity wall construction with certain decorative features, and hard landscaping to complement.

Enjoying a sun soaked garden just a stone’s throw from Greystones’ South Beach, the non-pareil location is enviable; about three to five – minutes’ walk from the

DART station, library and neighbourhood shops.

Leisure and sporting interests are well catered for, with rugby, tennis, lawn bowls, soccer and GAA clubs nearby. Greystones Golf Club is a mere walk from the “19th”; and there is a bridge convention centre close to the harbour.

The town’s new marina and harbour are but a stroll away and there is an excellent choice of local schools at primary and secondary levels.

For commuters, there are city bound buses, DART and outer commuter trains, easy access to the N11/M11/M50 motorway corridor; and of course the “Aircoach Direct” service to Dublin airport picks up and drops off at the station. Cherrywood Luas and Dundrum Town Centre are a quick run up the M50; and some of Co Wicklow’s most treasured scenery is on the doorstep.

This is an opportunity to acquire a designer residence one of a kind, and we strongly recommend consideration.

Violet Hill House, Herbert Road, Bray, Co. Wicklow

€1,495,000 - Asking Price|6 Bedrooms, 535 sqm approx

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.

A sense of the rural infuses this marvelous family home, yet totally in touch with suburban amenity, (schools, leisure and retail), minutes from Avoca Handweavers at Glencormac, the picturesque village of Enniskerry, Powerscourt Demesne and gardens; so close to the “garden county’s” best scenic amenities; and home for a period, while film-making at the nearby Ardmore Studios, to luminaries such as Sean Connery.

The light-filled rooms of this protected structure are generously proportioned with decorative plasterwork and high ceilings, many period features preserved. From the impressive grand reception hall to the intercommunicating formal reception rooms, dining room, kitchen wing, and family bedrooms; to the almost self-contained apartment ideal for live-in staff or extended family; to the totally charming grounds laid out in formal lawn and lush woodland, this is a captivating property well worthy of consideration by any discerning purchaser.
