Full description:

'Bella Vista' - a truly apt name for a truly unique home. Built in the early 1890's as a seaside villa by Joseph Meade, a Lord Mayor of Dublin. An ideal location on Strand Road in Bray with a beautiful outlook across the bay out as far as Lambay Island and a perfect view over to Bray Head - you will not find a more stunning vista. Many will recognize Bella Vista as the home on the seafront featuring a 'look out window' and iron railed balcony - a unique and quite iconic feature. Many of the original period features are intact including marble fireplaces, beautiful cornicing and ceiling roses, working window shutters and stained glass panels on windows.   

Laid out over three levels - the top floor is currently laid out as a 'self contained' unit which is ideal as an aupair suite or could easily be converted back to the main house. On entering, one is struck by the beautiful intricate cornicing work in the entrance hall and one that is carried on throughout most of the house. The dining room is on this level and takes in beautiful views through its large bay window. The kitchen/family room is downstairs and features a 'Le Droff' fireplace and gives access to the westerly facing courtyard rear garden. The first floor and first floor return is home to two of the bedrooms and the truly stunning drawing room where one can relax and immerse yourself in the wonderful sea views. This room is flooded with natural light through the large picture windows. A balcony can be accessed from here, where you can stand and enjoy the many attractions of your surroundings. The second floor is home to a third bedroom and wetroom. A stairs brings you up another level to the self contained 'apartment' which contains a living room, again taking in the most beautiful views, a kitchenette, large storage/utility area, two bedrooms, a wc, and a bathroom.

Wrought iron gate and railings give access to the front garden, beautifully laid out with an array of shrubs and bushes meticulously maintained and planted in raised flowerbeds to the side gaining the accolades of 'Best Summer Garden in Bray' and 'Best Garden at Bray Seafront'.
The rear courtyard garden is very private with an array of plants and shrubs to the sides. Outhouses to include a utility with stainless steel sink unit and double drainer, plumbed for washing machine, an outside storage area and an outside wc.

Bella Vista enjoys a unique and convenient setting in one of the best locations in the area, close to the many amenities Bray town has to offer including numerous renowned primary and secondary schools, a plethora of shops, good restaurants and varied leisure facilities. Bray Head's popular cliff walk is only moments away. The house is within a 5 minute walk to the DART station, and across from the beautiful and most popular seafront promenade. Access to the N.11 and M.50 are within easy reach.
