BUILT in 1890, Ar­magh House boasts soar­ing ceil­ings, pol­ished Nor­we­gian pine floors and orig­i­nal fea­tures ready for restora­tion.

On the mar­ket for the first time in more than 57 years, this her­itage prop­erty is on a 956sq m block and fea­tures four large bed­rooms, an of­fice and a smaller bed­room.

From the front gar­den, there are stairs to a porch with doors open­ing to the front foyer, two of the bed­rooms and a spa­cious sun­room.

The long foyer en­try leads to an open-plan liv­ing and din­ing room fea­tur­ing a grand Ital­ian mar­ble fire­place as the cen­tre­piece.

Other orig­i­nal fea­tures in­clude fret­work, VJ walls and dec­o­ra­tive stained glass doors.

Ad­ja­cent to the liv­ing area is a sun­room stretch­ing all the way around to the front porch.

Three of the bed­rooms are po­si­tioned in the cen­tre of the res­i­dence, in­clud­ing the main.

These bed­rooms have ac­cess to a sec­ond sun­room that leads to a bath­room.

The fourth larger bed­room is at the front of the prop­erty and has a built-in wardrobe.

A smaller bed­room and an of­fice are lo­cated at the rear of the prop­erty, ad­ja­cent to a bath­room.

Off the lounge and din­ing room is an in­for­mal meals area ad­ja­cent to the kitchen.

There is also a rear deck, which can be ac­cessed from the meals area.

A two-ve­hi­cle car­port is lo­cated be­hind an elec­tronic slid­ing gate.

Other fea­tures in­clude an in­ter­nal laun­dry, airconditioning in most rooms, standby 6kVA gen­er­a­tor wired to the main switch­board and an alarm sys­tem.
