The principal rooms enjoy a sun-bathed scenic outlook across the luscious gardens of sub-tropical appeal; while the hall-floor galleried reception hall accessing three bedrooms and a family room gives way to the garden level fourth bedroom, dining room, living room and kitchen/breakfast room each in its own way directly accessing, or having views of, the matured part-terraced gardens; themselves featuring numerous specimen plants, trees and flowering shrubs. The living accommodation is versatile, presented in really good order, and well-proportioned; with careful attention to detail and a certain decorative panache.
Twin vehicular gates lend access to a generous graveled parking area sheltered by a tall hedge, approaching the hall-level entrance door. There is access on either side of the residence to terraced gardens gently sloping southwards towards the stream from which this property is named. The gardens feature sheltered areas for sitting out, dining al fresco, entertaining or simply meditating while taking in the stunning backdrop with Great and Little Sugarloaf mountains on the skyline.
Graveled walkways, herbaceous borders and herb garden are complemented by specimen trees and plants; and to the north-west of the house stand the old stone walls of the original 19th century cottage pre-dating the 1940's residence delightfully comprising "Silverstream", offering potential to perhaps apply for planning permission for a separate granny flat or another building.
Ballywaltrim Lane, at the Kilcroney end of Bray's Killarney Road just a gear change or two from arterial motorway corridors and equally accessible to Bray DART station via feeder bus link, is an oasis of almost rural calm set against a vibrant township with a great choice of both primary and secondary education, leisure, with a swimming pool and library within walking distance; and retail amenities, not to mention Avoca Handweavers' proximity at Glencormac and Enniskerry's Powerscourt Demesne nearby; numerous golf, equestrian and maritime pursuits.
This is a unique family home with an orientation which lends the hint of a continental micro-climate on its verdant rear terraces, where the gardens become almost an extension of the living space as a "room outside".
We recommend consideration and viewing.
