Janet Carroll Estate agents are delighted to offer The Shackleton for sale by Private Treaty. The Anglesea building, the old Mail Hotel, is a most magnificent Georgian period gem c.1832 overlooking the Royal Irish Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire. The interiors are truthfully breath-taking for both the quality and design of the finishes. It was lovingly restored to its former glory by the Mayo renowned Bourke Building Family. Worthy of an award for best in class for bringing the old back to new.

The Shackleton enjoys a separate private entrance to the side of the building and the only apartment that has the addition of a private south west facing garden. It feels more like a period house than an apartment. It also links into the majestic halls of the communal building to the carpark and store room.

Located in this low-density development of only 13 units, this is the last apartment to be sold. It comprises a two bedroomed duplex home c.1,800sqft /168sqm of luxurious accommodation, exquisite high ceilings with stunning original coved ceilings. From the moment you enter the building there is a sense of history, with the generous halls and original period features.

With building costs at an all-time high, this opportunity is not one to miss. The Bourke Family have magically fused a period property, with its wonderful, graceful period proportions, with all the modern comforts of a cosy home.
