This picturesque Victorian Bray home is on the market for €975,000

Although it looks like it could be set down a country lane, it’s in fact just a short walk from the town centre.

A four-bed home with an additional one-bed studio apartment, 1 Mount Pleasant Villas sits on a quiet avenue in Bray.

You enter the home into a main hallway, which features a solid timber floor and ornate plaster cornicing. To the right of this is the living room, a large dual aspect space with a bay window, original pine floor and a marble fireplace.

To the other side of the hallway is the dining room, which is interconnected with the kitchen. It has a sash window, stove and wonderfully high ceilings, and the current owners use it as a second sitting room.

Double doors lead through to the kitchen, which overlooks the rear garden. There is also a utility room and one bedroom on this ground level.

Upstairs are the three remaining bedrooms, two of which have ensuite bathrooms, and the main bedroom also has a dressing room. There is a family bathroom on this level.

The studio apartment at the back of the house has its own separate entrance. The main living and kitchen space has a cast iron stove set in a brick fireplace and hearth, providing a lovely focus for the room. There is also a bedroom and a shower room.

Outside, the rear garden has raised circular lawn areas surrounded by pebbles, while there is also an Indian sandstone patio, large trees providing privacy, and a sunken section. The front is gravelled.

The house is located just a short walk from the centre of Bray, 20 minutes walk from the nearest DART station, and half an hour’s walk from the seafront.
