A STONE THATCHED cottage that looks like something straight out of a fairytale has gone up for sale in Ireland - but such idyllic surroundings don't come cheap!
Idle Corner House in Blue Ball, County Offaly is a strikingly picturesque detached property boasting three bedrooms and a bathroom which was first brought to our attention by Irish Central.
And while the exterior of the house and its many lavish bedrooms are impressive enough, it's the other features that are the most striking.
From a unique round tower built into the master bedroom to a fully-fledged medieval dining room perfect for hosting guests, there's something eye-catching to be found at every corner.
There's even a walk-in wardrobe that could prove to be a dealbreaker for the more sartorial among us.
Throw in cut stone external walls, beams and a perfectly maintained thatched roof and you have a truly magical medieval-inspired property that's fit for a King - or Queen.
On top of all that, this eye-catching cottage comes complete with a landscaped garden and water fountain feature across an acre of land that also features two large work sheds.
What makes this particular property all the more appealing is that it offers the perfect blend of country life and nearby city charm.
With the town of Tullamore just a short drive away and Dublin City not much further, there's no risk of getting cabin fever - or should that be thatched cottage fever?
The surrounding countryside is also a sight to behold with Sliabh Bloom mountains providing the perfect backdrop to a setting that could have come straight out of a picture book.
There's always a drawback with these properties of course and in the case of this stone thatched cottage, it's the price tag.
Currently listed on Daft for €395,000, you'll need to save up a pretty penny for this one.
But whether buying as a holiday home or long-term residence, it looks like money well spent.
