A seven-figure sum of £1.25m is the asking price for a listed, seven-bedroom, eight-reception Georgian house, with extensive grounds, placed on the market by Portadown estate agent Michael Hannath.

Woodbank, at 20 Moyallon Road, is described as a “Georgian residence of approximately 7,000 square feet, set within 42 acres of farm and woodland and bounded by two-thirds of a mile of the River Bann, to which the buyer will have fishing rights. A really attractive added attraction in a famous coarse angling river”.

There is a stable courtyard to the rear of the house, along with an extensive range of outbuildings, and two avenues with a gate lodge on the front avenue.

Hannaths described it – “The house itself has a south wing known as Little Woodbank, which has its own entrance, parking and gardens, accessed from the stable courtyard.

“Woodbank has both excellent formal reception rooms and entertaining facilities, overlooking the gardens and grounds.

“The house’s history dates back to 1693 and has always had an association with the linen industry, which has been detailed in ‘The Linen Houses of the Bann Valley and the story of their families’.”

Interest has been keen.
