Overview

Black Grace Cowley are delighted to offer this rare opportunity to purchase one of the Isle of Man’s most distinctive private houses, the former home of celebrated writer Sir Hall Caine. Built in Victorian Gothic style in 1849, Greeba Castle retains many original features and provides a unique opportunity to acquire a gracious home of literary and historical stature. Set in some seven acres of secluded grounds, the castellated residence is distinguished by elegantly proportioned rooms with lofty ceilings. Complementing the imposing main residence is a separate guest/staff cottage, a sensitive contemporary re-imagining of the former stable block, while deep in the wooded grounds is the studio, (now derelict), used by Hall Caine for his writing.

Directions:
Travelling on the A1 from Douglas towards Peel, Greeba Castle is to be found on the right, approximately 1.8 miles before the traffic lights at the Ballacraine crossroads, and is approached by a sweeping driveway bordered by lawns, mature trees and shrubs. Enjoying an elevated yet supremely secluded setting the property is conveniently located close to the capital, Douglas,
Peel and St John’s village.
