De­tached two-bay sin­gle storey cot­tage sits on scenic Sea Road

THE COT­TAGE ARK­LOW HOME PLACED ON NA­TIONAL IN­VEN­TORY OF AR­CHI­TEC­TURAL HER­ITAGE

Bray People - - Property Extra -

‘THE COT­TAGE’ oc­cu­pies an un­ri­valled lo­ca­tion on the Sea Road with a lovely east/west as­pect.

‘The Cot­tage’ has been recog­nised as adding much to the char­ac­ter of the ar­te­rial en­trance to Ark­low and placed on the Na­tional In­ven­tory of Ar­chi­tec­tural Her­itage Reg. No. 16322084 and de­scribed as: ‘A de­tached two-bay sin­gle-storey house, built c.1915, with later ex­ten­sion to the east’.

The build­ing is roughly rec­tan­gu­lar in plan but with a canted bay to the west el­e­va­tion, a re­cessed bay to the south-east cor­ner, and a pro­jec­tion to the north-east.

The façade is fin­ished rock-faced semi­coursed gran­ite with dressed gran­ite quoins and brick dress­ings to the open­ings.

The slated over­hang­ing hipped roof is in two dis­tinct ’off set’ sec­tions, and has a brick chim­ney stack. The en­trance ap­pears to be set within a re­cessed porch to the south-east cor­ner.

The win­dows are largely flat-headed and have tim­ber mul­lioned and tran­somed frames. To the east side of the south el­e­va­tion there is a small ’eye brow’ win­dow. The house has a road­side set­ting but is sur­rounded by a gar­den.

The prop­erty re­tains all of its orig­i­nal charm and fea­tures and of­fers the new owner the op­por­tu­nity to re­store it to its for­mer glory. For sale by auc­tion on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 18, at 3 pm in the Ark­low Bay Ho­tel. Guide price: ¤350,000. Fur­ther de­tails: Peter Mills Prop­erty, Ark­low, Tel: (0402) 32911, email: info@pe­ter­mill­sprop­erty.com
