The site includes an exquisite 18th- Century house at the centre of an estate comprising of 5,000 acres.
Luggala Lodge contains three substantial reception rooms as well as a wealth of smaller chambers on both the ground and first floors, with the latter’s size not being externally apparent.
There are seven bedrooms within the main house, four within the guest lodge and a further 16 in seven estate lodges and cottages throughout the estate. In all the accommodation within the estate extends to some 1,521sq.m or 16,379sq.ft.
