‘Crofton’ is a traditional Manx cottage which has been completely and sympathetically renovated by the current owner to an excellent standard. The kitchen was completely re built approx 2008 and has been fitted with a superb range of bespoke wooden units. ‘Thie Loutey’ was converted from an adjoining outbuilding into a charming holiday let by the owner and has been successfully managed by reputable company ‘Island Escapes’ for a number of years. The pathway which runs alongside ‘Thie Loutey’ also forms the property boundary on the left hand side. Both units have full uPVC double glazing with ‘Velux’s where required. ‘Crofton’s’ heating is provided by a back boiler on the stove in the lounge whilst ‘Thie Loutey’ has electric heaters. Hot water for both sides currently comes from either the back boiler or a separate hot water cylinder with immersion heater in ‘Crofton’.
Attached to both units is a former cow house which has excellent development potential subject to obtaining planning permission/ building regs.
