Magnificent 1800s Mill House in stunning countryside location in exclusive rural Kilternan just minutes the outskirts of Dublin. Beautifully designed & modernised interiors, with potential to extend and upgrade. Set on approx. 0.6 acres of beautiful South-facing gardens.
The Mill House was built in c.1800 as the country residence of a local mill owner, the property is a detached, seven-bay two-storey home extending to nearly 4,000 sq ft including an attached stable block.

— The Interiors —
Entering the front door beneath an elegant fanlight, we enter a grand entrance hall with historic flagstone floors, galleried first floor landing & welcoming log-burning stove in antique fireplace.
The front of the house features a vast main living room with elegant deep-bay windows & french doors facing South and East. The main living room includes stylish maple wood floors, a large open fireplace with sandstone surround and built-in bookcases. To the rear adjoining the living room is a modern fitted kitchen with dining area. Matt black kitchen units, grey corian worktops and integrated appliances. A matching sandstone-surround fireplace and french doors lead onto the rear patio area. There is a Guest WC off the main hall and then access to the west-wing where there is a second bright living room leading into a second kitchen-dining room.
Upstairs includes four spacious bedrooms. The Master Bedroom is a substantial room to the front of the house with views South over the stunning countryside, built-in wardrobes with a hidden entrance to private
ensuite. A large main bathroom and second double bedroom are located on this east wing of the house with the remaining two are over the west wing, accessed from the main gallery or via a spiral staircase the west end of the house. A second entrance hall on the west side of the property leads into the rear kitchen and living room, plus there is an additional also a downstairs bathroom / WC.
Adjoining the western wing of the property is a former stable with impressive barn-style door entering into a cavernous double-height space. Currently used as storage this area has great potential as additional living area, granny flat, studio or office space (Subject to Planning).
The property is not listed despite its impressive history, which means it is possible to make changes to the house internally or behind the frontage (Subject to Planning). In 2006 permission was granted to extend to the rear of the house to facilitate further bathrooms and corridor space to link the house more effectively. It would be an opportunity to rearrange the layout of the house to suit your needs and taste.
— The Gardens —
The property is being sold on approx. 0.6 acres of mature gardens and entrance driveway. This is predominately south facing garden to the front of the house, overlooked by most of the principle rooms, with rolling fields and the Dublin mountains in the background.
Inside the front gate to the right there is a granite stone paved parking area and to the rear of the house a grass slope rising behind the house provide privacy from any immediate neighbours.
