In addition Ramsey town centre is only some 15/20 minutes drive away. The property is surrounded by its acres of farmland for which at the coastal end is private access down to the beach and coastline.
Properties of this nature are rarely offered for sale and therefore an inspection must be regarded as essential in order to appreciate the private and tranquil position, the breathtaking countryside and sea views, wonderful sunset views and also the spacious accommodation with the potential for conversion of outbuildings to provide holiday cottage accommodation and equestrian facilities if required.
The price is to include fitted floor coverings.
Ballacallum Redgate has immediate mature and established gardens of around 1 acre for which at the front, there are 2 lawned areas with flower and shrub beds and a circular front terrace area. Water tap. Large lawned rear garden containing mature trees and established hedging along with beach stone and paved patios the garden itself is in a sun trap and sheltered position.
