An East Cork buyer with €265,000 to spend could buy a semi in Mi­dle­ton - or, con­sider the op­tion of this de­tached house at 1 Mid­dle Road in White­gate. Built in 2004, it’s a spa­cious three-bed house with 1,750 sq ft of liv­ing space. Sell­ing agents He­garty Prop­er­ties say it’s a beau­ti­fully pre­sented, in­di­vid­u­ally built prop­erty which is likely to at­tract first-time buy­ers from Mi­dle­ton who want to make their money go fur­ther.

Auc­tion­eer Adri­anna He­garty be­lieves the local ameni­ties on of­fer in White­gate could also be a sell­ing point. “Peo­ple move to White­gate as a life­style choice — there’s the beach and the sail­ing club and there are good pri­mary schools in Aghada and White­gate,” she says.

There are two front liv­ing rooms — one car­peted, one tim­ber-floored, both with fire­places — as well as a 25’ kitchen/din­ing room with white wall units with ap­pli­ances as well as a tim­ber-topped sky blue is­land unit.

To the rear there’s a util­ity room and a guest WC. Up­stairs there’s a bath­room and three tim­ber-floored bed­rooms in­clud­ing one with a shelved walk-in wardrobe.

Fit­ted with oil-fired heat­ing (un­der floor at ground level) the prop­erty has a C1 BER rating.

Di­vided by a wall, the front gar­den has an en­closed lawn with blue picket fenc­ing at one side and a tar­mac drive­way on the other. There’s also an en­closed pa­tio gar­den at the rear with a shed and a BBQ. Sit­u­ated on a quiet coun­try road, the house is lo­cated within a five-minute walk of shops and ameni­ties in White­gate and is 12km from Mi­dle­ton.
