REA FORKIN delight in bringing 5 Alexandra Terrace to the market For Sale. This superbly located property oozes character and charm, from the Prince of Wales Feathers emblazoned on the front of the house and the period features throughout, it is easy to imagine the magical childhoods past and the wonderful ones to come in this beautiful family home!
Originally built in the 1880’s as one of a terrace of six, these properties have been built to a standard that far exceeds any recent construction standards. Location is second to none, with Brays main street just a stone’s throw away and the myriad of local amenities and transport networks.
Upon opening the cast-iron gate, you are greeted by the beautiful red-brick façade and Victorian detail, the hallway is broad and welcoming with high ceilings and extensive ceiling cornicing and ornate plaster craftsmanship, which continues throughout the house.
There is a generous sized sitting room to the front with original marble fireplace, ornate tiling, twin side lamps and double doors linking the sitting room to a similar sized dining room, again an impressive room with polished marble fireplace, high ceilings and cornicing. All the original sash window shutters remain throughout the house.
The rear of the property has been extended in recent years to provide a self-contained apartment linking the kitchen which can easily be changed to incorporate the kitchen or remain as a self-contained unit.
The main kitchen is fully fitted with all modern conveniences and original flagstone tiles leading into it, a full utility room/kitchen adjoins again fully fitted with sink, shelving units, Velux sky light and window to garden.
First floor accommodation comprises of three spacious rooms, one single and two double rooms retaining all the Victorian features, ceiling cornicing and cast-iron fireplaces with a broad landing area leading to the second floor. Situated at the distinctive dormer window level to the front of the property, there are two good sized bedrooms with feature cubby storage and modern downlighters. Both second floor rooms are served by bathroom with W.C. and pumped electric shower.
Rear access is via lane-way off Novara Avenue with vehicular access and large garage.
