A sensitively restored Manx farmhouse sympathetically re-imagined to provide contemporary comfort and complemented by a Manx stone barn offering a variety of accommodation options, all set in tranquil grounds extending to approximately one acre. Dating from the 1830s Ballavoddan enjoys a secluded rural setting and successfully combines the traditional with the modern, featuring a well appointed kitchen/breakfast room, formal drawing room and dining room, inviting sitting room/TV room and a spacious conservatory offering outstanding views over the carefully tended woodland gardens. Four bedrooms, an office and three bathrooms complete the accommodation which is supplemented by a separate stone barn ideal as an entertainment suite, studio, office or to provide quarters for guests, staff or an independent relative. Quietly situated in one of the most sought after roads on the outskirts of the village of Ballasalla, the property is within easy reach of Isle of Man Airport and the capital, Douglas.
