2 Bed End of Terrace House 87 m² / 936 ft² For Sale D2


Built in 1869 by local Philanthropist, Charles Shields, for Almshouses and later refurbished in the late 1980’s is this attractive and exclusive residential development of quaint, cut granite townhouses, with No. 24 upgraded again recently. The Sheils Charity is still in existence today with much to be found out about them on their website www.sheilscharity.ie or a great local website on the general Stillorgan area is https://www.youwho.ie/sheil.html.

The clock tower at the entrance is the crowning glory of the development complete with gargoyles and a chime on the hour in the daytime. Arkle Square is in an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA), which is a place, area, group of structures or townscape that is of special architectural, historical, archaeological, technical, social, cultural, or scientific interest. All the houses back onto a green square with a flowing fountain water feature in the middle. There is a lovely sense of community among the residents.

The current owners were careful with this home which is presented in impeccable condition throughout and includes a beautiful decor, modern kitchen & bathrooms and light-filled accommodation throughout.

Immediately on entering one knows they are somewhere special. The red front door opens to a reception area open plan with the livingroom and diningroom with a stairs to first floor level. To the left is a large reception room which has a solid fuel fire. Double doors lead from here to the rear garden and on into the communal square. The kitchen is modern and has a tiled floor and is located off a dining area to the front of the property..

On the first floor are two very generous double bedrooms, the master of which has a beautifully tiled ensuite off. There is also an equally tasteful family showerroom on this level.

To the front of the property is a landscaped garden with off street parking while to the rear is a patio area leading to a large communal lawned area with water feature.
