Crofton is an impressive period property, which dates back to the mid 1800’s. Set in a beautiful and private setting, behind an attractive Manx stone wall with cast iron railings, the property is set back from the road, giving further grandeur to this intriguing town residence. A well tendered front lawned garden, with well stocked flower beds and mature trees provide an idyllic first impression. As you approach the property along the driveway, there are some striking features, such as the attractive Manx Limestone, beautiful glazed windows, and unusual dormers to the front façade. Steps lead up to a pillared entrance, which entices you to further explore this well-loved family home. Behind the solid wooden front door, you find over 5000sq ft of living accommodation, spread over 4 floors, with beautiful features and well-proportioned rooms which have been sympathetically decorated.
To the left of the property, hidden behind a tall Manx Limestone wall is Crofton Mews. This used to be the Old Coach House, which in recent times was rebuilt as a double garage with the upper floor converted into a studio flat. This has proved to be very popular to let, but it could be utilised as a separate home office or hobbies room. A large parking area also provides ample off road parking for family, friends and guests.
To the rear of the property, you can find a beautiful stone walled private garden with well stocked deep borders with an array of flowers, trees and shrubs. Accessed from the conservatory and formal dining room, there is an expansive sun terrace, with a dwarf wall and raised flower beds and lighting. A block paved pathway meanders past a well tendered lawn until you reach a large stone built gardeners’ workshop/potting shed and concealed compost heaps behind another stone wall.
To the side of the property are further well stocked beds, with flowers, berries and herbs. A cast Iron gate and railings provide access to the garage and parking area. Additional outhouses include, a separate wash house for the studio apartment, gardeners’ WC and large storage room housing the oil tank.

The price is to include carpets and light fittings

DIRECTIONS TO PROPERTY:

From Market Square in the centre of Castletown, walk along Arbory Street until you reach the junction with the Crofts on the right hand side. Proceed along the Crofts and Crofton will be found a short distance on the right hand side.
