£705,000 Arrange a viewing


Located in a Conservation Area on the outskirts of Douglas, this highly sought after, quiet leafy square provides extremely convenient living.  Within easy reach of Douglas town centre, the beach, Summerhill Glen and associated walks, parks and local Schools.

Designed by architect Armitage Rigby c 1901, this sunny large Edwardian semi-detached house has been extensively renovated and sensitively reimagined to meet the needs of modern family living whilst retaining its wonderful original features and charm.  Works include re roofing , re wiring, re plumbing, a pressurized hot water system and oil fired central heating system with recent condensing boiler.

The front of the property is entered through an arched hedge and original gate pillars.  A red paved path leads through the front garden which has been planted to reflect the period of the property with mature shrubs and herbaceous plants, a sundial and dwarf box hedging.

The decorative outside porch area houses a gate through which the private side garden can be entered.  This has been laid to lawn and has mature planting for ease of maintenance. This continues on to a patio area with an attractive brick storage building used to house the barbeque. Great area for summer entertaining.

To the rear the planting includes fruit, vegetables and herbs.  There is a rear double gate with access to garage and shared lane.

The price is to include the fitted blinds and floor coverings.


The property can be approached by travelling up Victoria Road and turn right at the roundabout by Shoprite into Little Switzerland.  Follow the road down and round to the left where the property can be found along on the left hand side.
