John O’Farrell & Sons are pleased to offer to the open market this imposing five-bedroom property in Coolbawn, Midleton, Co. Cork. 


The White House, which was built by the Burke Family C. 1960 is located on a generous site in delightful Coolbawn, Kennedy Park.  In 1975, the Burke family returned to reside in Cobh and Lady Sue Bell of Fota House moved to The White House where she resided for the remainder of her life.  The house was then purchased by the Aherne Family and it has remained in the Aherne name to date.  

The mature residential area of Coolbawn is a pleasant amble from Midleton’s main street which is home to the world-renowned Jameson Irish Whiskey Visitor Centre.  The recently completed public amenity walkway is on the doorstep of The White House in Kennedy Park and meanders through the Pontoon Walkway to Dwyer Road and on to Ballyannon Wood.




The White House


There is a timeless elegance to this handsome property.  Home Design and Fashion trends come and go but true style is everlasting, and The White House is a testament to this.  A solid, wooden red front door with an authentic leaded glass surround invites one in to this charming, light filled home.  Solid cherry wood flooring leads to the delightful first reception room where light floods in from the south facing garden.  An impressive marble fireplace which burned many an hour in a stately building in Cobh before being installed in The White House commands attention in this beautiful room which has decorative plaster coving and ceiling rose.  There are a further two sumptuous reception rooms with decorative coving and ceiling rose, a downstairs W.C., a bright, airy kitchen which leads to the large conservatory and well-maintained garden and patio area. 

Architectural stairs with wrought iron balusters weave their way from the resplendent hallway to the bright and generous living accommodation on the first floor.  The master bedroom overlooking the sunny rear garden is en-suite and there are a further four generously proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom.

To the rear of the property there is an extra-large and smaller multi-use store, a detached office, carport awning, lawn and paved patio area, large yard space and vehicular access to the Bailick Road.

The White House is truly a splendid property, brimming with confidence and full of charm.  This characterful home offers an abundance of comfortable living accommodation, immaculate outdoor living space, a wealth of multi-purpose storage areas along with three of the most precious assets any property can possess, Location,  Location, Location!
