3 Bed Semi-Detached House Sale Agreed D1


DNG is delighted to present “Birch Lea” to the market. This attractive semi-detached home was built c.1930 and retains much of the charming character of this era. The elegant high ceilings coupled with generous accommodation of approx. 129 Sq M is sure to appeal to a variety of home buyers.

Birch Lea was originally built as a 4-bed home c. 1930, it is now presented as a three bedroom with a study. A previous owner changed the 4th bedroom into a large bathroom with both bath and shower and the original bathroom is now used as a study.

In the last decade or so the current owners have provided many upgrades including wall and floor insulation, new windows, rewiring and the addition of a very attractive granite wall with large gates to the front of the garden.

The accommodation comprises entrance porch with double glazed door, entrance hall with attractive floor tiling and stained glass, a bay windowed living room with open fireplace and 3m high ceilings that are evident throughout the ground floor. To the rear of the house, you have a spacious dining room with open fire and separate kitchen both of which overlook the courtyard garden.

On the first floor you have 3 bedrooms, a very large family bathroom with jacuzzi bath, power shower and ample storage, and a study/nursery room.
The attic has also been converted into a very usable open space accessed by a pull-down ladder. The space is currently used for storage.

To the front of the property is a generous and quite private southerly facing garden with attractive granite wall and a gated driveway. A large lawn is ample outdoor space for the younger family members to enjoy and a gravel drive provides access to the garage and off-street parking for a number of cars. The garden is well supplied with roses, magnolia and a cherry blossom tree.

The garage of approx. 17 Sq M could be remodelled into very usable space or removed to provide more garden space depending on family requirements. A west facing walled yard to the rear of the property with granite slabs and raised flower beds is an excellent outdoor entertainment space and it enjoys early morning, afternoon and late evening sunshine. Off the garage is an additional storeroom and WC.

The location is superbly convenient to Bray Town centre and within 5-10 mins walking distance you have a selection of shops and schools both primary and secondary. Public transport is available on the Dublin Road, just 50 m from the house and Bray main street is just 950m from the house with the Dart station and seafront a further 650m.

Personal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate this lovely 1930’s home and all it has to offer.
