Maison Real Estate are pleased to release Ardress Cottage to the open market. This property offers a truly unique opportunity to own one of Northern Ireland's historic homes in one of its most beautiful settings. The Cottage was originally part of the Ardress House Estate which is now a National Trust property. It is nestled in the heart of the apple orchards that make this part of County Armagh famous. The oldest sections of the house date back to the 18th century with later additions being completed in the 19th and 20th century. The Cottage grounds have an informal beauty that must be seen to be fully appreciated. The woodland path to the front of the property is punctuated by spots of wild flowers as it winds its way beneath mature oak and beech trees to a secret summer house and barbeque area. The rear of the property offers a sheltered courtyard with multiple outhouses that are perfect for further development.With Loughgall, Moy, Portadown, Armagh, Dungannon and the Belfast/ Dublin motorways all a short drive away, Ardress Cottage is a uniquely magical property in a prime location and a wonderful family home with a choice of excellent schools.
