This beautiful stone building has plenty of country charm, while providing ample space for a family, both inside and out. 


The Mill House is located just outside Ballyshannon in Co Kildare. Built in the mid-19th century, it’s constructed from cut stone and retains lots of period features.

The entrance hallway features parquet floors, which are extremely popular at the moment, and there is storage space under the stairs. To the left of this hallway sits the dining room, which has a dual aspect, and as a result is very bright.

On the opposite side of the hall is are two further reception rooms, which lead to a large conservatory. Both reception rooms have cast iron fireplaces, while the conservatory makes an excellent place to sit and admire the garden. It also has French doors that lead to the garden, perfect for the summer months.

The property sits on 23 acres, including several paddocks, six horse boxes, and a tennis court. Surrounding the house there is a patio area, a large fenced kitchen garden with a greenhouse, as well as a lawn area surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, and a gravelled driveway.
