We've come across plenty of beautiful houses that look great on paper but wouldn't really float our boat when looking for a property to actually live in.

This beautiful mansion in Cork though is right up our street.

Menloe House in Blackrock is on the market for €1.8m and we're not exaggerating when we say it might be the most elegant home we've ever seen.

This Georgian period property is set back from the Blackrock Road with a recessed entrance, while the detached Gate Lodge is a lovely two-bedroom detached lodge separate to the main building.
