DescriptionNo 10 Loreto Avenue is a fantastic centrally located house, which has been completely transformed by the current owners who bought the property in 2015 to include an extensive refurbishment of the original cottage and the addition of a modern extension to the rear of the house, all under the expert eye of their architect friend Aisling McCann and finished to a very high specification throughout meaning the house benefits from an excellent B2 BER (Building Energy Rating).
Measuring approx. 142sq.m./1,528sq.ft. this exceptional home offers bright, light filled and open plan accommodation laid out over two floors. The attractive façade leads to a deceptively spacious, modernized four bedroomed family home which is presented in an immaculate 'turnkey' condition throughout whilst retaining a good sized and private southeast facing garden complete with a nice lawned area, raised planted beds and a nice patio which is ideal for 'al fresco' dining during the warmer sunnier months. Internally the accommodation comprises of an entrance hall with under stairs storage; a large front living room with an original cast iron fireplace; a home office/playroom; a fantastic open plan kitchen/diner/lounge expands across the rear of the house with modern fitted kitchen, multi-fuel stove and large sliding doors lead to the garden; a cleverly designed utility & guest wc completes the downstairs area. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms all with built in wardrobes, a family bathroom which is also accessible from the main bedroom and a nicely appointed shower room.
The extensive transformation of the property included a full re-wiring, re-plumbing, installation of a new kitchen, bathrooms, sash windows, floors and insulation. There is also an attached lean-to extension which currently serves as a garage/store room but in the current new working world could be converted into a nice home office or alternative used as a gym or games room. There is street parking immediately outside the house on the laneway.
Loreto Avenue is a mature and highly desirable residential enclave with a mix of terraced period homes centrally located in Old Bray within a short stroll of Sidmonton Square, the seafront & promenade, the DART station and the Main Street. Bray is a large bustling seafront town situated approximately 22km south of Dublin City Centre with an abundance of local services and amenities to meet ones' everyday needs and requirements including numerous primary and secondary schools, a plethora of shops, good restaurants & bars, a choice of churches, a selection of sports and leisure facilities including the Mermaid Theatre and Gallery, Bray Head and the popular cliff walk to Greystones and Kilruddery House & Gardens. The new Florentine Shopping complex with Stella cinema's which is due for completion later this year will be a great addition to the area. Bray has good transport links with easy access to the N11/M11 and M50 road network and a choice of Dublin Bus routes including the 45A, 84, 145 and 155.
