This iconic house originally built between the late 18th and early 19th century has certainly stood the test of time. Since it's original purchase, it has only passed hands between two families. First purchased by the current family in 1858, it has been home to six generations, most notably Michael John Fitzgerald McCarthy, a prominent and well-known Barrister and Author of " Five Years in Ireland" (1895-1900), this book was one of the most controversial best-sellers in Ireland at the time, greatly influencing contemporaries such as James Joyce.
Accommodation briefly consisting of approx. 228 sqm / 2,454 sq ft (inclusive of shop) and comprises of an entrance hall, store room, living room and kitchen/diner, whilst the shop consists of two good sized street facing rooms and a WC to the ground floor, on the first floor you will find another large living room, three double bedrooms and a bathroom, whilst the second floor consists of two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, all in need of complete modernisation.
Distillery Lane and as such has front and rear vehicular access. It benefits from a high pedestrian footfall and also a large volume of vehicular traffic. Parking is available via the rear access or on the main street and it also benefits from a large public car park to the rear.
Whilst in clear need of moderisation and refurbishment it has endless scope and immense potential.

Midleton (pop. 3,798), 11 miles from Cork City on the N25, is the main market town for the East Cork region, and serves a prosperous agricultural hinterland. The town has a long history, dating back to the foundation of a Cistercian monastery in the 12th century. Today the town is probably best known for its whiskey, distilled here since 1825. You can learn all about the history of Irish whiskey and see how it was made in the Jameson Heritage Centre sited in the beautifully restored old distillery buildings. Midleton is also known for good restaurants and food. Not far from Midleton, near the village of Shanagarry is the famous Ballymaloe cooking school.
