Set in a quiet cul-de-sac within a mature residential neighbourhood, this immaculately presented end-of-terrace home has been completely remodelled and undergone numerous improvements to create an inviting contemporary home.
Thanks to its convenient location less than ten 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.
Originally built in the early 1960s, the house has been extensively modernised by the current owner with a series of improvement works including comprehensive refurbishment, new windows and doors, and major changes to the internal layout to create a spacious, light-filled contemporary kitchen-diner at the rear of the home.
At the front of the house is a beautifully presented living room decorated in pale muted colours balanced by a splash of colour in the form patterned wallpaper surrounding an eye-catching open fireplace featuring a reclaimed and restored cast iron surround with a carved timber mantelpiece.
Upstairs, the main bedroom overlooks the front of the house and features a full-wall wardrobe with sliding doors, including one door that can be opened to reveal a concealed television housed behind the door mirror. At the back are two further bedrooms, both accessing a timber deck balcony overlooking the back garden and commanding views towards the town.
Outside, there’s a low maintenance cobble lock driveway providing secure off-street parking to the front of the house, while to the rear a good sized, low maintenance back garden with patio and a raised sun deck is ideal for family barbecues and hosting friends on warm days.
For those with an eye to potential, the back garden is also large enough to accommodate a side and/or rear extension to the existing kitchen-diner (subject to planning regulation).
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.
