WITH A TURQUOISE front door and ivy clad exterior, this four-bed Co Offaly home is as pretty as a picture.

Located a five-minute drive from Tullamore town centre, the property is within easy access of everyday amenities, while its 0.5 acres of landscaped gardens and the surrounding lands provide a tranquil environment.

The interior of the house is charming and filled with character from the moment you step through the front door, making for a warm and welcoming feel throughout.

There’s wide plank timber flooring in the hallway, which continues through the rest of the property. To the right of the hallway is the living room, where exposed ceiling beams, feature wallpaper and a solid timber fireplace create a cosy feel.
