This Gorgeous Tudor Home In Cork Is Straight Outta Casper The Friendly Ghost

Hands up whose property obsession began at a young age after watching Casper The Friendly Ghost and realising that some people live in the slickest houses EVER?

Like, old fashioned wood panels kinda slick with chandeliers and oak tables...

And while we always assumed we would have to move to the middle of nowhere in America in order to live somewhere with those chill design aesthetics, we've found out that Hollywood movies made a serious impact in the Wesht.

Specifically, in Oak Lodge Ard na Greine, Shanbally, Co. Cork, a six-bed, three-bath beauty.

We agree wholeheartedly with the description that this "stunning luxury property combines Tudor opulence with modern practicality to create what must surely be one of the most appealing homes to come on the market in recent times."

The entrance hall in the home is chess themed, and other jaw dropping details include the pretty French-style stove, imposing timber beams, a winding staircase and vaulted ceilings.

The entire accommodation consists of Portico Entrance to spectacular Reception area with central feature staircase, Lounge, Living Room, Family Room Kitchen, Dining Room, Utility, Sun Room/Conservatory, Storeroom/Boiler House, 6 Bedrooms (main En-Suite), Study (possible 6th Bedroom), main Bathroom, large open Landing, and a large double Garage.

And as for outside? Well, the ¼ acre site is beautifully landscaped and planted with a huge variety of exotic plants and trees. Very nice indeed.

The only bad news? We might actually be ghosts by the time we can afford it, 'cos it will set you back €695,000.

Oh well, a gal can dream.
