Viewers shouldn’t have any difficulty locating this four-bed semi at 14 Poppyfield Drive in Broomfield, Midleton – it’s very probably the only house in the row with a bright red front door.

Guiding at €250,000, it’s one of the most affordable four- bed semis on the market in the town at present and according to selling agents Hegarty Properties, is both stylish and well presented.

Offering 1,330 sq ft of living space, the property has been cared for by owner occupiers since it was built in 2004.

To the front is a timber-floored sitting room which has a fireplace with a gas fire and double doors leading through to a dining/music room where the piano is kept.

Also at the rear is a kitchen which has solid cherrywood units with integrated appliances as well as a utility room and a guest WC.

The first floor has a bathroom and four bedrooms – the largest one at the front has a bay window, a feature floral wall, built in wardrobes and an en suite.

Out front there’s parking, while at the rear, beneath a high wall, is a split-level garden with a lawn, a patio, a wall painted with flowers, and steps leading up to a gravel area and a shed.

Auctioneer Adrianna Hegarty says the location, within a 15 minute walk from town, makes Poppyfield houses a popular pick for first time buyers and trade up buyers.

“It’s just a 10-minute walk from the train station and offers easy access to the link road.’’

Verdict: Could tick several boxes for a first time buyer.
