  • 5 Bed Semi-Detached House - 266 m² / 2863 ft²


Fenelon Properties are delighted to bring No. 9 Eglinton Road to the market, a prestigious and stylish urban residential town house located adjacent to the new “Bray Central” shopping district.

A remarkably central location, minutes' stroll from Bray's celebrated esplanade seafront and harbour, complements this handsome end-of-terrace town residence epitomizing the best of late Victorian craftsmanship where sympathetic restoration and modern bathroom design sits comfortably with many attractive retained period features.

This end of terrace three-bay two-storey over basement house, is one of a uniform row of three built c.1870 during the renaissance period of Bray as a costal retreat for wealthy city dwellers. Although this lovely family home has been sensitively refurbished in recent years, The building still retains many of its original period features including ceiling coving, cornices and roses, exterior carvings, fireplaces, tiling and high ceilings typical of the Victorian era.

Of elegant proportion, many of the principal reception and bedrooms still boast their period ornate fireplaces; while the decorative timber ceilings lovingly preserved in several of the rooms are painted in muted shades to echo the wonderful sense of light afforded by the tall sash-windows.

Internally the spacious yet very comfortable accomodation extends to 266 sq.m /2863 sq.ft approx. which is laid out over three levels. The property offers two access points from the street – The main entrance is via a short flight of granite steps through the Victorian front door and the second by stone steps leading to the lower level. A wide inviting entrance hallway with ornate timber ceiling with central rose and original cornicing leads to the central staircase- the spine of the house. To the front of the house there is a beautifully appointed Livingroom complete with two large picture windows overlooking the front garden with views across to the local library and Bray Head. This room features original timber floorboards, restored cast iron fireplace, picture hanging rails and ornate timer ceiling. To the rear of the main living room, sits the original drawing room currently being used as a home gym. This room features an original fireplace and overlooks the westerly rear garden. The Rear return offers a guest wc, and Guest suite/bedroom 5. This large double room, features access to the boot room and offers access to the rear garden. On the lower ground floor/basement, one is invited into a very spacious kitchen with built in cream floor and wall units and bespoke kitchen island with solid oak worktop and porcelain tiled floor, a large opening lead to a beautifully appointed and modern family room which spans the full width of the house and features two large sash windows and original fireplace. This room has been fitted with bespoke tv cabinetry. A door leads off to an inner storeroom which leads to the lower front garden. On the lower ground floor there is also a fabulous playroom with access to the rear garden, this room features porcelain tiles. A utility room/plant room is located off the playroom.

Upstairs on the first-floor return there is a very spacious home office and also a separate guest shower room, steps lead you to the second floor where there are three spacious bedrooms (two to the front and one to the rear) finally on the upper landing there is a large bedroom and family bathroom which offers a full white suite ( wc, ehb and bath with seperate shower unti)

The easily-maintained front garden, bounded by railings above a plinth wall, has soft landscape features; a side gate leads to the westerly, walled and private rear garden set out over two levels . The upper terrace features a potting-shed ideal for storing garden furniture for those barbecue days!
Whilst the lower-level features artificial lawn and is ideal younger members of a family to enjoy.

All Bray's town amenities are at hand - primary schools and secondary as well as BIFE -. The property is adjacent to the new Bray Town Central Shopping centre, and a wide choice of retail and leisure activity to satisfy the most discerning: golf, tennis, bowls, GAA, football, shore-angling, and an active sailing club. Citybound bus services complement DART and Luas/Cherrywood connections, to add to great commuter connectivity via the adjacent N11/M11/M50 corridor.

Everything taken into account, this is a great place in which to live, work, and rear a family; the layout of this spacious property encourages the concept of home-working as an option, too, as well as the possibility of home-with-income.
