LOCATED IN THE small village of Shanbally, Co Cork, is Oak Lodge, a detached six-bed property on the market for €695,000.

With a Tudor-inspired exterior, Oak Lodge is bursting with creativity. That attention to detail continues inside too… beginning with a chess-themed reception hall.

Solid teak double entrance doors lead to the hallway, which features an oak and jatoba floor. In fact, all main rooms in the property – including bedrooms – are fitted with a solid oak floor.

The most eye-catching feature, however, is the hand-crafted dual staircase, which is carved with chess-themed features. Checkmate.

From here, there’s access to the lounge, complete with French-style feature fireplace and antique cast iron fire basket, while a large brick Inglenook fireplace grabs attention in the living room.

The open plan kitchen and dining room is to the rear of the property, with hand-painted beechwood cabinets, an Iroko centre island and a Belling gas/electric cooker. All appliances are included in the sale.

A utility room with solid oak fitted wall and floor units provides further storage space, while it’s also plumbed for a washing machine and drier, and features a stainless steel sink.

Double patio doors in the bright and spacious sunroom, with a brick feature wall and a vaulted ceiling, lead to the back garden. A stone patio area, swings and a large greenhouse make it the perfect spot for the entire family on long summer evenings.

Upstairs, the master bedroom boasts an antique slate cast iron fireplace, fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The sixth bedroom is currently being used as a study.

Outside, there’s a large double garage which is being used as a games room. In here, there’s a trap door leading to a storage basement.
