Tree-lined King Edward Road, long regarded as Bray’s prime residential address, seldom yields up such treasure as Silverdale, one of the very finest Edwardian family residences in the town. Mature sun-soaked tree-lined gardens lend a superb degree of privacy belying its close proximity – less than half a mile and easy walking distance - to town centre amenities such as the Mermaid Arts Centre, schools, churches and easy access to DART station, citybound buses, and Aircoach Direct. Commuters have further scope, being close to the N11/M11/M50 corridor.
Silverdale is presented and maintained to meticulous standards incorporating and preserving many original period features; for example, sliding-sash windows, quite delightful period fireplaces, elegantly corniced ceilings, stained-glass windows, and graciously proportioned rooms off a stunning arched gallery hall, with its polished mahogany floor, welcoming one to the American-style wet-bar before venturing onwards to a study, library, fine dining room, dual-aspect drawing room, custom-fitted kitchen, and five bedrooms.
Silverdale is approached from King Edward Road via electric gates leading to a gravelled driveway and turning area. The gardens are a delight, with mature specimen trees including cypress and eucalyptus; flowering plants and shrubs, such as rhododendrons and azaleas. The rear garden is in lawn, south/south-westerly, and enjoys lots of solar gain especially on its maintained lawn. To the east of the residence is a slightly raised, possibly former grass tennis court, upon which the vendors have obtained planning permission for a detached dormer residence with its own potential entrance from King Edward Road.
