A good turn-out was expected yesterday for an open viewing of this well turned out property at 32 Meadowlands, Broomfield in Midleton.

“This is a spacious, three-bed semi which has been tastefully decorated and lovingly maintained by its owners,” says Clare O’Sullivan of Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan, who is guiding it at €240,000.

She adds that the location in the Broomfield Estate is a popular residential choice for first-time buyers.

“There isn’t a huge supply of three-bed semis in the town in this price range at present, so we have been inundated with calls about it,” she says, adding that she is getting some interest from trade-up buyers as well as from young couples in search of a first home.

Built in the early 2000s, the house has 1,256 sq ft of living accommodation, and also has 220 sq ft more space in a converted attic.

Ground-floor accommodation includes a laminate-floored living room with a bay window and a limestone fireplace as well as a family room and a kitchen dining room with modern fitted units. 

There is also an understairs WC and a small utility room at the rear.

The first floor has a bathroom and three bedrooms — two doubles including one en-suite, as well as a single. 

The converted attic has a 16’ long room with laminate flooring and Velux windows.

Located in a cul-de-sac overlooking a green area, the house has gardens at front and rear. 

It’s approximately one mile from the Main Street in Midleton.

VERDICT: Spacious and well turned out
