BUILT IN 1810, Milton House was originally home to a cotton miller (and known as Miltown House back then), but it’s undergone something of a transformation in recent years.

The current owners have upgraded the manor extensively, keeping its opulent period glamour but adding a host of modern features.

This being the grand stately home that it is, naturally the property comes with a parcel of land attached. For the €1.1m price tag, the new owners will get the property, plus outhouses, guest cottages, and a gate lodge – all sitting on 16 acres of land.

Inside the former Big House, the kitchen is placed, somewhat unusually, at the rear of the home, and uses a vibrant shade of purple throughout.

It’s one of the darker rooms in the property, but it’s nonetheless impressive, especially the granite worktops and extensive fitted presses.

The home’s living and dining spaces are immaculate, with plenty of space for the whole family, plus a large Aga oven.

The main reception room is adjoined by a lounge and a conservatory, and in the basement, there’s a host of wonders, including a study, sauna and games room.

Milton House has four bedrooms – the master boasts access to an en-suite washroom, as well as a walk-in wardrobe.

Throughout this floor, as well as the ground floor, you’ll spot a host of period features, from old, polished wooden shutters and sash windows to original fireplaces.

Located less than a ten-minute drive from Bandon town, Milton House is a rural getaway that’s still close enough to all the essential amenities.

There are both primary and secondary schools in the area, as well as shops, sports clubs and restaurants. Cork city, meanwhile, is a 45-minute car ride away.
