The Features

Introduction
Ballagick farm is one of the most prestigious properties on the Island, a magnificent and unique country house of some 12,000 sq ft of floor area surrounded by its own land. Approached via an attractive stone pillared entrance, with electronically operated wrought iron gates, along an imposing 1/3 mile long privately owned gravel drive with lawn and post and rail fencing to both sides, leading to an extensive circular forecourt to the front of the house. Lightly landscaped gardens, lawns and mature trees surround the property and the land itself extends to some 52 acres, which includes paddock, grazing, arable fields and woodland. Large, modern detached barn of some 4,400 sq ft which could be used for a variety of purposes.

The main body of the house and garage block skillfully integrate the 200 year old Manx Stone barn and the existing farm house – which now forms the rear wing. The original brief was to construct a period style house with contemporary materials, services, insulation and comfort, combined with all of the architectural fittings and finishes of a fine Victorian period home. The finished result is a magnificent residence with a light and bright ambience, taking full advantage of the beautiful panoramic views.

Superb well planned accommodation centres around the generous Reception Hall, with double doors to the Drawing Room, Dining Room and Orangery, making the house particular suited for entertaining. The spectacular designer Kitchen is open through to a south facing Breakfast Conservatory with pleasant views to the south. An attractive cast iron stairway leads down through the glazed Atrium to the Snooker/Games Room, Gym and Cellars and also to the converted Stone Barn with Baronial Hall featuring a spiral staircase to the Minstrel’s Gallery above.

The house has been designed with flexibility in mind, it would be a very simple operation to create a self contained Staff/Granny Flat with separate entrance in the rear wing should this be required.
