Description

Dating back to c. 1878 Cairness was originally built as the Rectory for neighbouring Christ Church. With the hallmarks of the Arts and Crafts style, Cairness is an imposing late Victorian house presented in immaculate decorative order throughout having been comprehensively refurbished and extended over the last decade by the current owner. Screened from Church Road via established shrubbery and mature trees, electric security gates and a sweeping gravelled driveway provides access to the front of the house with sizeable parking area and garage. Double timber panelled doors beneath a porch with a Tudor style arch open into the welcoming entrance hall with wonderfully high ceilings and original tiled floors. There are three impressive reception rooms to include a formal dining room, drawing room and living / tv room all with marble fireplaces sourced from Christopher O'Neill & Sons. Intricate ceiling cornicing remains intact as do the working window shutters. Intricate ceiling cornicing remains intact as do the working window shutters. From the drawing room glazed doors lead through to the orangery with doors onto a patio area. Adjacent is the extraordinary kitchen / breakfast room flooded in natural light with bespoke cabinetry by John Daly with granite worktops, a centre island, a six oven electric Aga with a four gas companion hob and a range of top of the range fitted appliances. The kitchen benefits from Travertine marble floors and access to the beautifully landscaped back garden. Further ground floor accommodation includes a utility room / back kitchen with access to the rear courtyard, a comms room, a study and a guest WC. There are two staircases in Cairness, a sweeping principal one in the main hall with atrium allowing daylight stream in; and a smaller staircase to the rear. There are five double bedrooms on the upper floors, three with en-suite bathrooms and two sharing a family bathroom. All of the bedrooms have bespoke wardrobes by Dave Prickett, two have sea views while the bathrooms are truly luxurious with high quality sanitary ware as well as swathes of marble, designed and fitted by John Daly. Of particular note is the main bedroom with stunning garden views over to the church and the benefit of a particularly large dressing room. Cairness extends to approx. 498 sq. m. / 5,360 sq. ft. and is presented in turnkey condition throughout. Cairness is situated on approx. 1 acre of beautifully manicured grounds maintained weekly by The SAP Group. Extremely well screened from both Church Road and neighbouring properties, the gardens provide complete privacy thanks to a selection of mature trees to include Sycamore, Copper Beech, Myrtle, Eucalyptus, Mulberry and specimen trees; while Tasmanian Ferns frame the avenue. To the front of Cairness is an expanse of lawn while the side of the house offers a westerly aspect and a granite paved patio area, an ideal suntrap for catching the afternoon sun. The rear garden is formally laid out in a parterre with mature Box framing Bay Trees and Lavender intercepted by granite paved walkways. There are beautiful borders and a further patio area. To the side of the house behind the garage is a useful, fully fenced dog run. Cairness is located on Church Road, opposite Christ Church. All amenities and services are within walking distance including Bray's Main Street with a plethora of independent shops, bars and restaurants. Bray's famous seafront and promenade plus excellent public transport links (Dublin Bus Service & DART) are nearby. This convenient location is just 21km south of Dublin City Centre, Greystones is 6km and the N11/M50 is less than a 5 minute drive away providing easy access to all surrounding areas and Dublin Airport (40 minute drive)
