SUMMARY Originally constructed in the mid 1920’s, Rotherwood is an exquisite Arts and Crafts property architecturally designed by the renowned G Kay & Sons, responsible for the original development of the properties on Mooragh Promenade, Ramsey.
Rotherwood has been recently modernised to create an impressive modern family property situated on a 0.2 acre plot, located in a sought after green and leafy no through road, providing a quiet and peaceful location, yet Central Douglas is within easy reach on foot.
The current owner has made significant improvements to enhance Rotherwood to the highest of modern standards, meaning that the level of maintenance required on the property in the coming years will be limited and comparable to more recently constructed properties. These enhancements include new roof slates, felt and batons, lead work, chimney stacks, barge boards and guttering. Complete rewire including new armoured cabling and consumer unit. New heating system and plumbing. Substantially all of the windows and a number of the doors have been upgraded with modern uPVC replacements.
Internally the list of improvements to the property continue with new floorings and internal quality doors, LED lighting throughout, an impressive contemporary Kitchen upgrade with approximately £18,000 of new appliances installed, newly fitted Family Bathroom and En Suites, £2,500 of USB sockets and multiple pairs of black-out curtains are all included within the sale price.
Entering Rotherwood through the main door onto the Ground Floor there is a welcoming Entrance Hall that leads immediately to an impressive and attractive Dining Kitchen with a wall of full height contemporary soft closing gloss units. Another wall includes matching wall and base units with hard wearing counter top, all of which is complemented by a large in keeping Island with breakfast bar and seating for three. The Kitchen is loaded with appliances, which include full height integrated fridge and freezer, two premium inset Bosch ovens and a matching Bosch inset microwave oven/grill with Bosch warming draw. The Island houses a Bosch integrated dishwasher, wine cooler and hob with contemporary down draft extractor, modern glazed sink and matching tap. An eye catching curved area designed for dining is capable of facilitating a family sized table, which is also glazed making the Kitchen light and bright. Fully glazed double doors lead out to a decked Sun Terrace with stunning distant country views.
Off the Kitchen is an immaculately presented and well proportioned Lounge. The ground floor also comprises a Utility Room plumbed for a washing machine and dryer, with WC and wash basin. A dual aspect Office/Study provides ideal work from home space. Two sets of stairs lead off from the ground floor, with one providing access to the Lower Ground Floor, and the other set leading to the Upper Floor.
The Lower Ground Floor has been fully insulated both in the walls and under the flooring with double sided foil bubble insulation This is an open plan space that can easily be remodelled to provide two separate rooms. This large area is light and bright with a modern finish. Multiple large windows and glazed double doors leading out to a further decked Sun Terrace.
The Upper Floor incorporates a newly fitted and attractive Family Bathroom. Two of the four immaculately presented Bedrooms benefit from En Suite Shower Rooms with newly fitted sanitary ware.
Externally the front of Rotherwood is walled ensuring it remains private and is accessed via double gate. A detached garage with newly fitted roof can be accessed externally by a vehicle to provide off-road parking. A permit can be obtained to provide roadside parking outside of the grounds of Rotherwood, and a short distance up the road the parking restrictions come to an end.
Once through the gates and into the grounds, brick paviours provide a low maintenance area to the front of the property which benefits from attractive raised bed borders. Recently fitted paving slabs and steps lead down the side of Rotherwood to a private rear garden mainly laid to lawn with fencing and hedgerow ensuring privacy. A Garden Store provides a further external storage area with lower and ground floor sun decks completing the external space.

DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY The Keep is the adjacent property to Rotherwood, and presents a rare opportunity to acquire an attractive development opportunity, to create neighbouring properties.
The Keep has full planning permission to create a substantial and contemporary property stretching to over 3,000 square feet. It has already been part developed, and at the start of next year is currently scheduled to be ready for first fix installation, meaning that the property will be fully water tight, with roof, windows, doors and bi-folds all expected to be in place.
This takes away a number of the risks of developing a new property, yet presents the opportunity to internally design the layout and final design of the property as well as external finishings.
Depending upon the chosen specification, it is anticipated the costs to complete the property will run in the region of £150,000 to £200,000, and is priced to sell at a competitive £395,000.
The opportunity to acquire both Rotherwood and The Keep may suit families seeking to live in a quality modern property whilst they develop their ideal contemporary property to their own specifications, or alternatively families seeking neighbouring properties for multi generational living.
Due to its unfinished nature, The Keep is suitable for cash buyers only.
DIRECTIONS Travelling out of Douglas on Circular Road in the direction of the Quarterbridge roundabout, shortly after travelling past the Brown Bobby petrol station take a right turn up Belmont Hill. After a short distance take the first right turning onto Belmont Road and Rotherwood can be found on the right hand side.
