DescriptionSilverdale, King Edward Road, Bray, Co Wicklow A98 X650
Situated in a private setting on King Edward Road, one of Bray’s finest residential streets, Silverdale is a particularly fine detached, five-bedroom, Edwardian house dating from the very early 1900s.
With a floor area just over 4100sqft and situated on 0.5 of an acre, this legacy home has been in the same family for over 40 years.
Electric gates sweep open onto a gravel driveway and invite the visitor to enjoy the elegant exterior with extensive leaded stained-glass windows and a symmetrical façade.
Once inside a wide entrance hall with a galleried landing over it evokes the grace and style of the Edwardian era.
Silverdale has a wealth of the features that make houses of this period so attractive – including period fireplaces, superbly corniced ceilings, stained glass windows and graciously proportioned rooms.
A notable feature is the American- style wet bar – a cocktail bar with a sink – off the entrance hall – this home was buil for family gatherings and those who love to entertain.
A previous owner was a noted marble importer and added a fine marble splashback in the kitchen and a bath with a marble surround in the upstairs main bathroom.
The property generally is very well-preserved but has not been extensively refurbished or modernised. It therefore presents a wonderful opportunity to a family seeking home of great character who wanted to add some modern comforts.
The interior of the property is well-proportioned with large rooms and high ceilings. Accommodation includes entrance hall, wet-bar, large reception room, drawing room, dining room, library, study, kitchen, separate utility and rear hallway plus 2 x guest WC
Upstairs is a main bathroom, five double bedrooms, one of which is a uest quarters with private cloakroom and shower room.
