Ballagarraghyn Manor, Main Road, St Johns
A bold expression of refined rural living....
A modern and inspired contemporary interpretation of a traditional manor house set in two acres.
Providing luxuriously appointed and supremely flexible accommodation the property is distinguished by meticulous craftsmanship, notably the skilled and creative use of solid walnut, maple and cherry, combined with the latest technology, all discreetly housed.
Dramatically different throughout, Ballagarraghyn Manor features four elegantly proportioned principal reception rooms, a study lined with custom made cherry cabinetry, a triple aspect gymnasium and a lavishly equipped kitchen, while the 32 long snooker/bar room and Art Deco-inspired cinema room provide ultimate after-hours entertaining spaces. Completing the accommodation are five double bedrooms and five bathrooms.
Surrounded by formal gardens and terraces providing a wealth of opportunities for al fresco living, the property enjoys a prominent position and is located close by the village of St Johns for day-to-day requirements, while the capital, Douglas, is a short car drive away.
Travelling out of Douglas towards Peel on the A1, Ballagarraghyn Manor will be found on the right a short distance before the crossroads at Ballacraine.
The property is approached via electrically operated gates leading to a paviour-surfaced driveway bordered by lawns and mature trees leading to an expansive courtyard and imposing entrance portico.
