Located in a tree bordered valley, at the heart of the Isle of Man, and a much loved family home for more than 20 years, Ballig Farm comprises a traditional eighteenth century Manx farmhouse that has been sympathetically and substantially improved and extended during the present ownership, to produce this most desirable family home. The house has an atmosphere of warmth and welcoming and is in perfect decorative order, with thick wool carpeting in many areas and traditional or bespoke heavy oak latched doors throughout, kitchen and bathroom tiles are all by Original Style. An ideal home for entertaining as all the reception rooms link around the central Aga room. Set within twelve acres of mature gardens, extending into adjoining, gated fields, the property exudes a sense of privacy and seclusion whilst ready access is available to all areas and amenities on this beautiful island. The Isle of Man boasts numerous leisure activities including marinas, golf courses, cycling, scuba diving, excellent walking and hiking, fishing (Injebreck reservoir is less than a mile up the road, a rich wildlife, car rallies and the world famous TT motorbike races. The island's main hospital is just a 10 minute drive away. The island skies offer perfect conditions for stargazing with the northern lights being frequently seen in winter. Educational standards are excellent with well over half of A level students gaining access to off- island universities. King Williams College, an Independent school for boarders and day pupils, has achieved outstanding results with the International Baccalaureate. A spacious airport, located at the south of the island, services multiple daily flights to a number of UK airports and Ireland, whilst regular ferry services to the UK operate from the island capital, Douglas. A house of charm and character, Ballig Farm offers flexible accommodation with two sitting areas, four bedrooms, three (recently upgraded en suite bathrooms, two shower rooms, kitchen areas, a large study and a sizable integral garage. Entry is through a front stable-door into a vestibule, lit by two side windows, and thence though a second door to the smaller of two sitting rooms. A room largely enjoyed in the winter with its original large cholagh, or traditional Manx fireplace, with a substantial oak beam and wood burning stove, filling most of one wall and a triple glazed picture window overlooking the front garden. One oak latched door leads into a kitchen area and a second into the dining room. An open staircase ascends to the bedrooms at the front of the house. The first kitchen area houses an Aga and an oak door to a large pantry and storage area. A step up to a short corridor leads to the first of two back doors and an internal door to the garage. The main kitchen has bespoke fitted elm cupboards and a secondary cooking area with induction hob, a double fitted oven, an integrated microwave and double butler sinks. Two steps down to the breakfast area with an end wall comprising a cathedral window and French doors to the back patio. This area affords stunning views over the garden to the river. The kitchen areas have quarry tile flooring with underfloor heating. Pass through a windowed door into the large sitting room: a substantial room with triple glazed windows overlooking the gardens on two sides and with French doors opening onto the side patio. A small hearth houses a double sided wood burning stove which services this lounge and the dining area. Upstairs is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and fitted wardrobe, a single bedroom, (or small double), a separate shower room and an ante room leading to a sizable master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk in wardrobes. An oak door from the main kitchen area leads into a separate living area (architect designed, this area was intended as a possible self-contained unit but the present owners have incorporated it successfully into the main house) via a small landing with door to a utility area and second back (stable) door and stairs up to a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and down to a shower room/toilet and a large room (currently used as a study but could easily be used as a 5th bedroom) with wood burning stove, French doors to the back patio and a large walk in storage area. The house is reached via a sizeable paved driveway through two possible gated entrances. The front has a substantial patio area which continues around the side. There are lawned areas with mature shrubs and trees; four ponds of varying sizes, a fast flowing shallow river bounds the garden area to the back of the house. There are 2 bridges crossing the river which lead to a semi wild area of the garden. This area is absolutely stunning in Spring, where all along the river is a sea of bluebells, wild garlic and other wild flowers. Garden birds are regular visitors as are wild duck, pheasants, moor hens, rabbits and the occasional passing heron, cormorant and hare. There are a number of outbuildings, including a greenhouse, shed and original cowshed converted to storage. Ballig Farm has oil central heating throughout and the electricity supply is supplemented with discreet solar panels on a side roof. Fast speed fibre broadband is available in the area.
