Starter Home: Bloomfield, Midleton €175,000

This three-bed house at Blueberry Fields in Midleton might not be ‘Strawberry Fields forever’, but with a guide of €175,000, it would certainly make an excellent starter home.

Built in 2005 by McInerney Homes, No 6 Blueberry Fields in Broomfield is a 1,000 sq ft mid terrace property.

Adrianna Hegarty of Hegarty Properties says it’s owneroccupied, decorated with style, and is in excellent condition.

Within a few hours of putting the brochure online during the week, she says she had booked appointments with six first-time buyers: “The attraction is the price, the condition, and fact that it’s in a popular development.”

Accommodation includes a laminate-floored sitting room with a fireplace, a tiled kitchen with oak units, integrated appliances, and an archway leading through to a dining area with patio doors. Off the hallway there’s an understairs guest WC.

Upstairs accommodation includes a bathroom and three laminate-floored bedrooms, including one en suite.

Fitted with gas heating and double glazing, the property has a C2 BER rating.

To the front there’s parking and to the rear a lawn with a patio and a shed. Overlooking a green area at the front, the house is within 1km of Midleton rail station and 2km from the town centre.

The popularity of Blueberry Fields can be seen from the fact that eight properties sold there during 2016.

VERDICT: May well be one of the most affordable modern three-bed houses on the market in Midleton.
