Acers, Booilushag, Maughold, IM7 1BB

Property Description


Agent's Comments
A stunning detached modernised period style house designed by Jack Kinnair who was a London architect in the 1970s and spent much time on the Isle of Man developing various concepts in the Ramsey area.  The property is set on a  large plot in a prominent position with beautiful Maughold countryside views and would be ideal for somebody looking to down size from a larger house, or a young family.


Vendor's Comments
What a great location. Beautiful scenery, great views, lots of wildlife and bird song coupled with a lovely spacious home that was designed to capture all of those . We have so enjoyed being here. It is convenient and close to Ramsey, and a place to escape the busyness of Douglas at the end of the working day. The garden is a private peaceful setting with a good variety of shrubs. It has been a real pleasure living here.
