DescriptionREA Forkin take great pleasure in introducing Motebello, Strand Road to the market. Montebello is one of the finest period properties to be brought to the market in Bray in recent times. This wonderful 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom, semi-detached seaside residence extends to approximately 345 sq.m (3,714 sq.ft). This fine home retains all its original character and many original features as well as offering spacious, light-filled and generously proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms.
Located on Strand Road, Montebello enjoys breathtaking panoramic views across Bray seafront and promenade, Bray Head on one side and Dalkey Island on the other. This area is one of the premier locations in Bray with mix of many beautiful period homes and commercial properties including hotels, eateries, coffee shops, and bars that are all quite literally on your doorstep.

The house is entered through a glass front porch which leads to the front door and hallway. The hall is a grand entranceway with beautiful cornicing , original staircase and hardwood floors. Off the hall we find the dining room which interconnects with the front living room, separated by a dual aspect fireplace.

Off the first floor landing there are a further five double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and a full family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms have original fireplaces and the front bedrooms enjoy sensational sea views.
The house is set back from the road with ample off-street parking for numerous cars to the front. There is a wonderful opportunity to create a front patio/seating area in order to make the most of the seafront from an elevated position. The wide side passageway leads to a spacious, flat back garden with two block built storage sheds that could used as a home office or studio space. Off the kitchen is a lovely patio area that is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
