One of Northern Ireland's most historic homes, which dates back almost 300 years, has gone on the market in Londonderry.

Aghanloo House in Limavady was originally built as a hunting lodge for the aristocratic Beresford family around 1740.

The Grade B1 listed property has a rich history, having served as a local rectory for a period and also as a school house during the First World War.
