Grand 19th century residence

Situated in over 2.5 acres of beautiful mature grounds, this impressive manor-style country house is an iconic property in the Donaghmore area of Co Tyrone.

Built by the well-known Brown family, founders of the legendary Donaghmore soap factory, this property enjoys complete seclusion just outside the town of Dungannon.

Dating back to around 1845, Aghareany Lodge is approached by a tree lined driveway and sits nestled in a woodland setting boasting its own tennis court and stables.

Extravagant accommodation

Inside, the four reception rooms are finished with superb details and exceptional finishes. The vast accommodation also includes a vestibule, reception hall, ground floor cloakroom, butler’s pantry, a library with family den, three shower/bathrooms and three further WCs, plus a superb kitchen/dining room, a laundry room, children’s toilet and a boot room.

Upstairs, a large, bright landing has a cosy reading area which overlooks the gardens, as well as six bedrooms.

Externally, the accommodation extends to an impressive courtyard which contains a variety of outhouses, a garage, stables and a substantial games room which could be converted to a gym or annex.

Opulent rooms with beautiful finishes

Aghareany Lodge retains the air of magnificence it would have had when it was built. This is evident from the moment you step into the hallway which is delightfully finished with wood block flooring, coved ceiling and feature display cabinet.

The formal dining room is bursting with light due to the windows on all sides. The space showcases an open fire place with a wooden mantel surround, feature arch, coving and a picture rail.

Dining room

Wonderful views overlooking the back garden and the tennis court can be enjoyed from the drawing room. This is a grand room with large windows, a period style fireplace, wooden flooring and French doors opening to the garden.

The outstanding reception space continues with an elegant and bright family room, with window seats in each of its three large windows and double doors opening to a family dining room.

The library is inviting, with extensive fitted storage, book shelves and an open fire which you can sit by and take in those magnificent garden views.
