DescriptionSantapola is a charming 1930's double fronted 4 bedroom detached bungalow which has been completely upgraded and extended by the current owners to present a deceptively spacious, modern family home in this highly desirable location in Bray.
On entering there is an overall sense of light and space, with high ceilings and attractive laminate flooring throughout, enhancing the flow of the accommodation. To the left of the hallway is a double bedroom, with built in wardrobes. To the right is the large dining room / 4th bedroom, both rooms have pretty box bay windows overlooking the front garden. Further along the hallway to the left is the modern family bathroom with walk in shower, full bath and separate wc. To the rear of the property is the very large principal bedroom with en-suite shower room. The cosy living room to the right of hallway boasts a superb solid fuel stove with back boiler, fitted shelving and storage cupboards, from here an archway leads directly into the tastefully designed kitchen where you will find a good range of shaker style wall and floor units, gas cooker, small breakfast counter and Belfast sink. There is a utility area to the left, plumbed for washing machine, dishwasher and space for a dryer. French doors open to rear garden. Upstairs is a spacious landing, off which is a generous double bedroom and shower room. To the other side of the landing there is a good sized attic room with Velux windows which could be put to a variety of uses, adding to the versatility of the accommodation.
The location is arguably one of the best in Bray, being within a stone's throw of the famous promenade and seafront. Ideal for the outdoor enthusiast, with Bray's sailing club, rowing club, outdoor bowls, hiking, swimming and not forgetting the cliff walk to Greystones practically on the doorstep. The promenade hosts a variety of renowned ice cream parlours, cafes and restaurants. For commuters, the DART is within a 10 minute walk, the town centre is served by a number of bus routes including the 145 and aircoach to Dublin airport. Bray town itself boasts an array of shops, supermarkets, eateries and for arts lovers the Mermaid Theatre just off the main street is a cultural hotspot, with its theatre programme and cinema club. There are numerous well regarded primary and secondary schools in Bray, again given the central location of the property, many are within walking distance. With spacious accommodation ideal for family living, viewing is highly recommended.
The low maintenance front garden is graveled with off street parking for up to 3 cars with access to the rear through the side garage. The private rear garden takes in wonderful views of Bray Head, is mainly graveled and designed for outdoor dining, with a stone built barbeque, built in wooden bench and decking area with wooden balustrade. A stone pathway leads to the large storage shed. There is also a mature pear tree and raised beds with a selection of shrubbery and planting. To the side is the original garage. There are two water butts collecting rain water.
