Agents Comments
Cowley Groves are delighted to be able to offer such a prestigious period home in one of the most sought after locations in Douglas. The property itself has been within the same family for a number of decades. The current owners have maintained the property to the best of their ability but the property now requires some refurbishment, Kent Lodge is however without doubt a fine example of a period family home. Priced at £495,000, there is plenty of scope to improve the property and to create a residence unlike any other. To organise a viewing, please call Mark Canty on 07624 220109.
