DescriptionBrabazon Cottages are a group of five two-bay one and a half story homes that date back to 1882. The façade of the terrace is striking; finished in uncoursed rubble and extensive ornate brickwork. This listed terrace dates back to the Meath Estate that has made a lasting presence in Bray that at one point held 14,000 acres in Wicklow including Kilruddery House.
No. 2 has been carefully renovated by the current owner making this property a warm and welcoming home that oozes all the character and charm of its era. This wonderfully bright house balances period features and modern living from the contemporary high gloss kitchen juxtaposed by the rough original stone walls; to the original panelled doors and pot bell stove in the living room and the modern shower room to the rear of the property. The bedroom space is generous with two double bedrooms on the second floor one with an original cast iron fireplace.
French doors open out on to a sun drenched south facing patio garden with block-built storage shed, colourful planting in raised beds and a door through to a secondary garden area. This is part of an exclusive laneway that runs down the back of each cottage with each area maintained and for sole use by their owners.
The location is second to none, within minutes walking distance to Bray Town which offers an abundance of shops, schools, restaurants, DART, a regular bus service and the N11 is close to hand. We would strongly recommend viewing this special and unique property.
