Ballarhenny Farm, Kirk Michael
An opportunity as magnificent as its setting, Ballarhenny Farm is a coastal Estate set in approximately 70 acres offering unrivalled commanding views of the west coast of the Isle of Man towards the ancient capital of Mann, Peel, St. Patrick’s Isle and its Castle and across the Irish Sea to the Mountains of Mourne and the Scottish lowlands. The Estate has been in family ownership for over 200 years and was acquired by the current owner in 2010.
Since acquiring the site, the current owner has undergone an extensive infrastructure programme introducing a network of roads to link the 22 fields that make up the 70 acre Estate, from the Orrisdale Road extending to the West and the shoreline. The Estate has been further enhanced by an extensive rolling programme improvement strategy of indigenous trees and shrubs which is the forbearer of wildlife, flora, fauna and ecology corridors within a traditional historical agricultural setting. The Estate is not compromised by any public rights of way or overhead services. There is unencumbered vehicular access during the TT and Festival of Motorcycling and part of the Estate fronts onto the World Famous TT Course offering the owner the opportunity to erect private grandstands from which a unique racing experience can be had.
Careful strategic planning approvals have established this site as a unique opportunity to accommodate a significant country house with associated lifestyle buildings within the Estate. The design parameters have been set out to provide flexibility and multiple options to either accept a traditional or contemporary development of the site on a significant scale.
