What can be found behind closed doors never ceases to amaze us.

Perhaps you'll find some bizarrely eclectic decor, a jaw-dropping view, or in this case, a time warp.

This Georgian townhouse on Oxmantown Mall in Birr, Offaly, dates all the way back to the 1820s and, from the looks of its interior, it hasn't changed a whole lot since.

Of course, living in what's basically a museum ain't cheap: it'll cost you €1,500,000. 

Think we'll stick with the present, thanks.
