Ardonan offers a rare opportunity to create a fine example of contemporary manx architecture for the ultimate private rural property. Set spectacularly within 55 acres of picturesque, farmland with planning permission for a new country house within its own settling and far reaching rural views all around.

Ardonan Farm represents an extremely rare opportunity to build an exemplar of contemporary architecture set spectacularly within 15 acres of picturesque farmland and create the ultimate private rural retreat. Currently Ardonan Farm comprises approx. 15 acres of undulating pastureland to the south east of Ardonan Lane and incorporating sections of woodland and wetland habitats. On site is a traditional two storey farmhouse and outbuildings, centrally located within the estate and sitting within an acre of its own grounds ensuring total privacy.
Planning consent has been recently granted for a replacement dwelling under PA 19/00875/B. The approved planning permission allows for the creation of a new 5 bedroom (all ensuite) house of contemporary design in the adjacent field to the existing curtilage and which provides for maximum use of sustainable and eco building practices, as well as making the most of the farm’s expansive countryside views. The planning approvals include the ability to create a new private landscaped entrance off the Regaby Road that can then join the existing long private driveway that leads down to the central yard where the main existing buildings are located. The orientation of the property ensures all rooms benefit from true south facing views. Also approved is the renovation of the farm outbuilding to a charming 3-bedroom cottage. The approved new main dwelling will provide 8.5k sq. ft. of contemporary living space (not including balconies and terraces)
Ground Floor: office, gymnasium, music room, boot room, plant room, 2 W.C.s, lift, and an integrated underground three car garage and bike store. First floor: 5 ensuite bedrooms including one superb master-suite in the bedroom wing and then a stunning open plan ‘super living space’ comprising a large lounge, kitchen and dining areas with separate utility room and larder storage, alongside a separate play/snug room and lift access. There is also a unique large canter levered first floor terrace with open fireplace and giving expansive southerly views towards the distant hills.
The surrounding farmland is presently let for grazing on a rolling short-term tenancy to a neighbouring landowner, meaning the land and boundaries are well maintained.
