Set in a sought after residential area less than a mile from Arklow Main Street, this three-bedroomed property is an ideal choice for home hunters seeking a modern house in a great location close to the town’s many shops, services and amenities.
Positioned directly opposite an attractive amenity green within a development of 32 modern homes, the property is presented to a high standard and has just been freshly repainted with spotless décor in pale, neutral colours enhancing natural light.
Thanks to its convenient location less than 15 minutes’ walk from the centre of Arklow, the property lies within easy reach of the town’s wide-ranging choice of shops, schools, services, sporting facilities and outdoor amenities.
At the hub of the home is a light-filled open plan kitchen-diner running the length of the rear of the house. The kitchen features a complete range of integrated appliances, including a brand new dishwasher, electric oven and hob, all of which are included in the sale.
From the dining area, French doors open out on to a timber deck, which in turns leads on to sunny, south-facing rear garden. Not overlooked and with privacy enhanced by a mature high hedge, this is a private and secluded outdoor space, providing an ideal place for children to play, family barbeques or simply relaxing in the sun on a warm summer’s day.
Also downstairs is a welcoming entrance hall with contemporary style guest bathroom off, and a good-sized sitting room with feature fireplace, looking on to that amenity green.
Upstairs, the main bedroom overlooks the front of the house and features a brand new carpet, floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom off. At the back are two further bedrooms overlooking the back garden, both with built-in wardrobes. A family bathroom and a landing complete upstairs accommodation.
For those with an eye to adding extra living space, there’s potential to follow the example of neighbouring homeowners by converting the attic.
To the front of the house is a hard surface drive providing off-street parking for two cars.
On the market in move-in condition, this property is an ideal choice as a spacious starter home, or for couples, singletons, downsizers and investors alike.
