I agree on the awesomeness. How many people are in the market for 1969 though. :)

I don't know, it'd be a hard house to live in with a hangover.

Does anyone want to buy a used theremin? I haven't touched mine in years.

4,400 square foot of McMansion in Bannagagole, on 4½ acres with vegetable plot.

Yay! I got to apply the McMansions guide posted by snaps on the previous page. All boxes ticked.
Things I took away from watching that video:
a) for 4,400sq.ft., there are an awful lot of pokey rooms and awkwardly placed doors
b) the EA has not missed their calling as the next Christopher Nolan
c) the washing machine works

In fairness, the exterior is not awful but the interior is pure Irish domestic folly. 408 sq. M. but they're still eating off the granite-top island in the kitchen.

The entrance hall is a barn but at least they resisted the sweeping grand staircase.

6 bed, 8 bath - ideal for a B&B. And at less the 200 Euro per sq. foot just over an hour from Dublin, this could be among the best-value houses in Ireland 8DD

Yeah, I don't think the outside is that bad.

The inside is hobbled by the typical poor quality finishes (e.g. pine flooring) you get when you spend all your country manor budget on square footage.

Never mind the quality, feel the width!

That's exactly what I did too!

My conclusion from the interior was that this is basically a "bungalow bliss"-style classic Irish layout, just with extra rooms.
