This lovely home has evolved from being a small country cottage, to being a wonderful home, which was renovated and extended by its current owners. Although, they more than doubled its size, they were able to successfully retain the character and charm of a bygone era.

It is located in a semi rural location, accessed off the Armagh to Portadown road, close to Richhill village. In the days when horse drawn stage coaches transported travellers from Belfast to Dublin, the road went past the cottage's front door. At that time this was a busy hamlet called 'Loney's Town'. The Armagh Road was straightened at sometime (today it would be called the 'Loney's town' bypass !) leaving only four homes accessed via a private road, in a truly idyllic setting. It's a place, where you really feel you could escape the modern world, to a haven of peace and tranquillity. As I sat in the conservatory, chatting with the owners, a small rabbit darted in and out of the bushes and a beautiful cock pheasant wandered across the lawn. I feel, such a scene is almost lost to the 'progress' of modern life, so if you are seeking to find something that the fast modern life has left behind, this truly wonderful family home could be a lifestyle change not just a new address. Try it and see!
