Chantilly House

The first home up in Rathmichael is Chantilly House on Ballybride Road. This will appeal to those with deep pockets, thanks to multi-building grounds.

Add gardens of approximately two acres and you have your own private estate.

The property was originally used as a stud farm before being refurbished and enhanced into the home you see today. You’ll love the Georgian detailing, the carefully curated living spaces and simply magnificent gardens. With everything from mature trees and flowerbeds to a range of children’s playground features and a croquet lawn, the garden itself deserves as much adoration as the main home.
