This jaw-dropping Victorian Gothic Revival home (circa 1851) is festooned with ornate carvings and gargoyles, which can be attributed to the famed 19th Century Cork architect WH Hill. A wide mahogany staircase winds up from the huge entrance hall that still retains all its original features, tiles and statues. Entrance to this unique property is down a long driveway through the woods that line the Ballymahane river (complete with otter and mink) that is included in this 6 acre property. The very old, arched redundant Ballytannig Bridge spans its course, at the bottom of the garden beyond the croquet lawn, and bubbles into a lake that is complete with a small island where ducks and a heron roost. Ten years ago the property undertook an extensive renovation after lying derelict for 50 years. This includes re-wiring and re-plumbing. Many of its original features, including the 24 sash windows were carefully restored while modernising them. The property is 2 km from Bandon town with its many amenities. The house is approximately 400 metres squared and includes a swimming pool of approx 120 metres squared.
