Regarded as one of the most iconic properties in the local area, Glenaspet dates back to the early 1800’s. The current owners are renovating and extending the property to maintain its traditional style whilst also bringing the interiors up to date. They have thoughtfully refurbished the building, creating spaces which have the option of being used in a variety of ways. The building is entered via a spectacular porch and entrance hall on the lower ground floor, from where a colonial style oak staircase winds its way upwards through to the first floor. The lower ground floor houses a leisure suite which could comprise of a gym or games room and a sauna and lobby with direct access to the gardens. There is the option of a cinema room, with civil works in place for either a bar area or additional utility room, depending on what is preferred. In the eastern wing there is a large guest bedroom and adjoining bathroom, as well as a study or additional bedroom with direct access to the gardens.
The ground floor has been designed to reconcile the tasteful garden patios with their adjacent interiors. From the impressive kitchen-diner and its bi-fold wall through to the formidable drawing room, flanked on two sides by beautiful French doors, through to the west wing containing two bedrooms including the vast master bedroom with its private patio and ensuite, Glenaspet lifestyle is all about bringing the outdoors in. But when a cosy retreat is the order of the day, this versatile home offers refuge in the form of a secluded dining room and nearby snug. Practicality has been a major consideration from the outset of the design, with the inclusion of a luggage room, boot room and large utility/laundry room on the ground floor. The flooring throughout the main areas is a combination of light oak and high quality porcelain tiling. With a large utility/laundry room adjacent to the kitchen diner as well as a cloak and boot room, Glenaspet holds the perfect balance between practicality and exquisite country living.
To the first floor there are four further bedrooms, one of them en-suite and a large family bathroom enjoying the full aspect of the estate. Sanitary ware is a tasteful balance of high quality, modern and traditional fittings with bespoke tiling. The property has been fully modernised and is serviced with mains water, electricity and private drainage. Oil fired central heating and underfloor heating have been fitted throughout the main house.
The estate of Glenaspet is approached through a set of electrically operated wrought iron gates, opening out onto a tree-lined driveway which meanders through the extensive grounds and splits three ways to lead to the stables, coach house and main family home and grounds.

Below this floor are the garages and workshop. Apart from the obvious use for family members and guests, the Coach House lends itself ideally to Staff/Estate Manager accommodation. The impressive undulating grounds lead to formal landscaped gardens, patio and firepit areas, fields, paddock and woodland, with a potential to create leisure facilities such as a swimming pool and tennis court to suit.

The private estate of Glenaspet occupies over 9 acres of idyllic countryside and mature woodland, near the west coast of the Isle of Man. Whilst its peaceful setting invokes a true sense of tranquillity and seclusion, it is only a twenty minute drive from the Douglas airport and a stone’s throw away from the historical village of St Johns, the geographical centre of the island and also home to the Manx Parliament, established in the 8th Century. The neighbouring ancient coastal town of Peel, situated on the west coast of the Isle of Man at the mouth of the river Neb, is a five minute drive away. With its sandy beaches, breakwater and harbour, Peel has an enchantment of its own as an idyllic coastal getaway and rare opportunity to travel back in time and escape the entrapments of fast-paced city life. Its spectacular sunsets are made all the more memorable by the magnificent ruined castle that stands on a small island at the west end of the town. Its pink sandstone walls surround an ancient Celtic cathedral dating from the 13th century – it is this cathedral which inspired the locals to affectionately name their town Sunset City. The narrow streets once witnessed the clandestine smuggling activities of the eighteenth century, whist nowadays it is a charming fishing port with narrow, picturesque streets furnished with restaurants, bars and independent shops. Here you will also find the high school, a dance academy and Peel Golf Club. Beautiful walks abound, as to the south of Peel the coastline changes to one of grandeur as the cliffs rise steeply from the sea and lead to the remotest part of the Isle of Man, offering gorges, glens, fishermen’s coves and wild moorlands rising steeply from the sea to a 1,500 foot summit. This area of the Isle of Man and has been described by Trail Magazine as ‘some of the wildest terrain on any British coast path’ and is a true sanctuary for nature-lovers from all walks of life.
