Millboro has a quite unique setting under a wooded rise on the Lee Road, and stands on 13 acres (5.266ha) fronting onto the River Lee, together with 350 metres frontage and fishing rights.
Millboro enjoys a simply idyllic country setting on the Riverfront. Perfect hideaway from City Life, and yet remarkably, this charm and seclusion is only 10 minutes from the City, Hospitals, University, Ballincollig, and 15 minutes from Bishopstown, Regional Technical College, Apple and EMC. The main South Link Road is 10 minutes away with direct access to Cork Airport, Ringaskiddy ferry terminal, and all main routes North, East and West. The property also has easy access to most schools either in Cork City, Ballincollig or Clogheen.
The house is approached through a pair of cast iron automatic gates (forged on the property in the 18th. Century) with an avenue leading to a spectacular setting of views over the surrounding countryside and river, giving total privacy.
The house is full of character and is a perfect home for entertaining, and was the setting recently for a large family wedding with marquee. Though needing upgrading, the residence offers a handsome interior with original period features throughout.
The main garden and house provides a full Southerly sheltered aspect. An absolute suntrap, creating a Mediterranean atmosphere, taking advantage of the precious Irish Sun. The front of the house is terraced with spectacular setting for eating out and entertaining, soothed by the dazzling view of the River framed by mature trees planted in he Georgian era. The gardens are an oasis of seclusion and peace.
The terrace leads to a garden laid out in grass lawn with flower beds, which continue as a lawn parterre, eventually leading to a field and undulating River Lee. The combination of formal planting wit flower borders, lawns, mature trees and river views is simply breath-taking. The former walled garden still provides abundant apples of many varieties.
A total retreat and escape from a busy working day. Nature is busy here and the wildlife enthusiast ...
