DescriptionNo. 1 Albert Terrace is an attractive terraced period home ideally located on one of the best addresses in Bray and only a stones' throw from the famous promenade and seafront. Presented in an immaculate condition throughout, the current owners have upgraded and modernised the house over the past 17 years to create a comfortable family home, whilst retaining much of the original features and character.
The bright spacious and versatile accommodation measuring approximately 165.5sq.m./1,780sq.ft., extends over three floors with a traditional return element to the rear. One is immediately impressed by the very inviting entrance hallway with its' 3.6m high ceilings complete with coving and centre roses, the wood panelling on the walls and archway. Off this there are two large reception rooms both with nice features and a bedroom with ensuite bathroom on the return level. Going downstairs one is greeted by a fantastic open plan and modern kitchen cum dining room with double doors leading onto the rear paved patio (an ideal area for 'al fresco' dining) and a large utility room which would have originally been the kitchen. Upstairs there are three more bedrooms, a great family bathroom with all the mod-cons including under floor heating and lovely bijou study is situated at the top of the stairs which is an ideal space for home working in the current climate.
Outside to the front of the house behind a pedestrian gate and wall there is a small but sunny garden with a mixture of planted flowers. There is rear pedestrian access via a shared laneway which leads into a courtyard in paved sandstone with a selection of sheds that are ideal for storing bins, bikes and more. On street residents parking permits are available.
Albert Terrace is situated on the Meath Road which has a mix of period properties and is one of the best and most desirable locations in Bray, within a few minutes' walk of the Main Street, the DART station, and the seafront.
