Annahugh House in Loughgall is a once in a lifetime opportunity for any buyer – and even a rarity for seasoned sellers at CPS Property.

CPS managing director Art O’Hagan said this is one of the most unique properties he has had the privilege of marketing in his 30-plus years selling homes.

“Having been in the business for 33 years selling property of all types, the appointment to sell Annahugh House country residence is greatly appreciated to CPS,” said Mr O’Hagan.

So much character in the living room

“This substantial period residences is a listed property with renowned architectural quality is a unique opportunity for the present owner to pass on the custodian of this elegant property to a very fortunate new proprietor.

“Viewings are strictly by private appointments only and will be accommodated by CPS.”

It is understood the property is the oldest recorded period residence in Mid Ulster, dating back to 1650.

The home is currently occupied by the Hewitt family, as it has been since the mid-80s, but now they feel is the time for someone else to make their own memories.

“With a heavy heart and warm wishes, I have decided to sell our family home and only hope the next custodian of our beautiful home has as much happiness here and creates as many fond memories as we have had here in Annahaugh House,” said current owner, Ms Hewitt.

Since Annahugh House was built, in the 17th century, it has always been occupied as a family home.

The charming residence consists of four bedrooms, four receptions rooms all with the original features, kitchen / dining living room, two bathrooms plus numerous large outbuilding, including two stables, and a paddock.

The agents said a private mature driveway to the country residence allows for an “exceptional first impression of grandeur”, adding that “mature shrubbery and trees” reassures privacy at the secluded period property.

The beautiful gardens

Annahugh House is on the market for £395,000. It is located only seven miles from the Moy, five miles from Portadown, eight miles from the city of Armagh and close access to the M1 within a 8.5 miles radius.
