Video: Property of the week, Strike it rich in the Co Armagh hillside

Tall River Lodge, 32b Annareagh Road, Richhill

It is luxury all the way inside and out for the family who buys Tall River Lodge, which boasts a truly exceptional interior specification.

The house is perfect for anyone with equestrian interests as it comes with stables and 58 acres of your own land to keep both you and your horses fit.

There is also the added luxury of a separate guest bungalow and a garage with a first floor games room.

Remote control electric gates open onto a winding driveway, leading to the charming picture book double-storey cottage, surrounded by beautiful, mature gardens.

What looks just like a period home is in fact a modern new build with a high-end finish, filled with bespoke architectural design features.

There are six bedrooms and three reception rooms, and the house is designed to cater for the country lifestyle with its own boot wash area and a cloaks changing area for peeling off those muddy boots - and to refresh in when you come back from exploring the surrounding countryside.

You enter into a gorgeous circular hallway with stone floor and vaulted ceiling, and the most incredible curved-stone staircase, with bespoke decorative metalwork balustrade.

There is also a natural stone fireplace with wood burner and store, which houses the controls for the under-floor heating.

The lounge is a vast space, with a large stone fireplace and walnut-coloured timber floor.

Floor-to-ceiling, timber-framed windows keep this space bright and envelope sliding double doors open to a dining room/family area.

The same walnut flooring ties this space with the main lounge, and more features await in the form of bi-fold doors and floor-to-ceiling windows, plus another circular staircase leading to the first floor.

A ground-floor bathroom is luxuriously kitted out with a tiled shower area, roll-top bath, and its own built-in speaker system.

Curved solid wood architraves and curved timber doors are just one of many examples of the level of fine detail as you enter the beautifully-styled bedrooms, two of which are on the ground floor.

The kitchen at the moment is a blank canvas awaiting the new owners' personal touch. There is so much scope here, with 592 square foot of space, which has been plumbed for a central breakfast bar/sink facilities.

This gorgeous room has a vaulted ceiling with timber beams and trusses and a stone floor, plus large timber doors opening to a patio area with built-in barbecue, so that you can continue your dining outside on a warm day.

There is also a larder, utility room, shower room, cloakroom, cloaks/changing area, boot wash area and boiler room on the ground floor.

Upstairs and the luxury continues in the master bedroom suite, where you are again greeted with a magnificent vaulted ceiling with timber beams and trusses.

There is a spacious walk-in dressing room, which leads to a spa-like en-suite with a sunken bath, double shower cubicle with glass partitioning, and a circular wall incorporating his and her wash hand basins, plus a WC and bidet. The floors and majority of the walls in this decadent space are finished in designer blue/black mosaic tiles.

There are three more spacious bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

Outside the main house has been designed around a landscaped and cobbled courtyard, where there are two stable blocks with eight stables connected by a clock tower with adjoining tack rooms and stores.

The guest bungalow has its own lounge, kitchen, bedroom and shower room.

The house is surrounded by extensive, mature landscaped gardens with lawns, trees and shrubs

Also included in the sale is around 58 acres of land.
