FINDING AN AFFORDABLE family home that ticks all the boxes, in this day and age, can be a lengthy task.

Ensuring the build has plenty of space for the kids to roam around, a parking spot for the car as well as privacy are all factors that come into play.

Enter Bellingham, a new development of detached and semi-detached homes in Portlaoise that have all of these factors in mind. With prices starting from €180,000 for two-bed detached homes, many house hunters might be able to see the finish line.

Leading from the hallway, the large living room that connects to the modern dining area and kitchen, with its wood floors, fireplace and well-thought-out lighting makes for an ideal family room. Bay windows not only add an elegant feature to these homes’ facades, they make sure natural light is spread evenly throughout the space.

Clever too are the glass double doors that lead to the dining area and let the light pour in from another aspect.

A dining room, modern in design and established with a stylish pendant lamp provides great views of the back garden ensuring a safe and secure space for young children.

The kitchen features Italian porcelain tiles with splash-backed sink areas. Appliances are fully installed and include the fridge freezer and dishwasher. For keen cooks, the electric hob, extractor hood and an intergrated stainless steel oven can be switched on as soon as they move in.

The main family bathroom is finished in Italian brushed porcelain tiles.

Portlaoise really acts as a great base for those working in the Leinster area. Commuting to Dublin within an hour on the M7 makes things easy, while the other busy towns of Kildare, Newbridge and Naas are all just half an hour away. Another advantage is the train’s regular service, which serves Cork and other counties, in no time.

For discerning buyers with growing families looking for a home that’s spacious, affordable and well located, Bellingham is certainly a great option.
