Selling agents Hegarty Properties say that one viewer was so wowed that they put in a bid of in excess of the €265,000 guide price just days after the three storey four bed semi went on the market.

While the 34’ by 16’ kitchen/dining/living area with its Celtic Interiors bespoke kitchen may well be the main attraction, the house also has a further 1,200 sq ft of beautifully decorated space.

At ground level there’s a sitting room with a fireplace and a guest WC while the first floor has a bathroom and two bedrooms, one en suite. 

Up on the second floor, there are two more bedrooms as well as a bathroom.

Overlooking a green area, the property has cobblelock parking at the front and a garden with a patio at the back.

“Broomfield is an ideal location within walking distance of Midleton town centre,” she adds.
