Castle Sale

A reader has brought my attention to the sale of Spur Royal, now known as Augher Castle, in County Tyrone. It is being sold by Knight Frank estate agents.

Augher Castle is stated to be one of the finest houses in County Tyrone.The present owners have invested considerable time and effort refurbishing the property, creating a beautiful family home with wonderful views across the lake and gardens.

The castle is set in it own well- maintained grounds and perched at a height overlooking the Lake. An estate stone wall abounds the village side, with two entrances to the estate.

The house has both excellent formal reception rooms and beautiful entertaining rooms, coupled with a comfortable family atmosphere. The rooms are light, well proportioned and finished to a high standard, with the majority benefiting from the lovely views over the garden and lake.

On the North East side of the lake sits the Stable Yard with coach houses, a four bedroom cottage and a large walled garden with hanger and further large storage barn. The estate manager’s house is accessed via a separate avenue and it sits amongst a copse of trees over looking the lake.

Augher Castle certainly impresses by its grandeur but feels like a home, as it is a warm, conveniently laid out and well maintained house, which makes everyone feel welcome.
