Mid-Ulster is an area known for historical properties that can truly inspire - but few captivate quite like this gem dating back to the 18th century.
A farmhouse that has remained in the same family for over 200 years, 96 Drumenny Road, also known as Duffmount, represents an exceptionally rare opportunity on the market.
The main dwelling - extending to approximately 3,900 sq ft and spanning over three floors - requires repair and sympathetic restoration to return Duffmount to its former glory.

Elsewhere, a four-door oil fired 1920s AGA cooker and terrazzo flooring enhance the main kitchen, with the back kitchen leading to a fully fitted bar and lounge.
Eight bedrooms - six on the first floor and two on the second - are full of character and hidden delights. Many have their own fireplaces, while the lucky occupant of the third bedroom will be treated to views over Slieve Gallion.
