Situation

Corris's Croft stands within beautifully landscaped grounds of around 6 acres only a couple of miles from the Isle of Man's second largest town, Ramsey. Ramsey is in the island's sunniest area with relatively low rainfall. It lies in a 'rain shadow' just to the north of the Manx hills, on the edge of the northern plain of the island. Rain clouds coming from the prevailing south-westerlies tend to lose most of their moisture on the hills before they reach the town.

To the north of Ramsey the beaches run continuously to the north tip of the island. On the southern edge of the town, at the edge of the hills, are a network of woods and glens: Ballure Walk, Lhergy Frissel and Elfin Glen. The Millennium Way and other paths and roads lead up to and across the upland heath ('the tops' and 'the hills'), clearly seen from Corris's Croft.

The town has two bakeries, a wide range of independent shops, including traditional butcher, baker, and a Shoprite supermarket stocking many Waitrose lines. There are numerous pubs and cafes, and a Farmers Market every Saturday.

The world's most famous motorcycle race circuit, 'The Mountain Course' of the TT, passes through the town with Parliament Square and The Hairpin being popular viewing spots.

The town has a full range of sporting clubs including a rugby club, a football club, a hockey team, a Gaelic football team, Ramsey Ravens swimming team and a golf club. There is an active sailing club, the Manx Sailing and Cruising Club, which promotes an annual Round the Island sailing race as well as regularly scheduled dinghy and cruiser races. Ramsey Angling Club holds regular sea angling competitions.
Ramsey has two modern junior schools, Ramsey Grammar School, and in the private sector, The Buchan School and King Williams College in Castletown.

Description
As its name suggests, Corris's Croft's origins lie in a beautifully located Manx croft house which has been superbly designed to create flexible accommodation over mainly a single level taking full advantage of the exceptional views. Set alongside a tributary of the Sulby River, this very private property is approached by a long driveway and sits within about 6 acres of manicured gardens with a hard tennis court.

The property has a wonderful south facing vista to the rear towards the wooded hills and extensive terraces for alfresco entertaining. With mainly rendered elevations combined with traditional Manx stone this is an extremely attractive property which sits comfortably in its delightful rural setting.

Equally well suited as a family house or for entertaining the accommodation has self contained staff accommodation or a studio/office in addition to an integral two bedroomed guest wing with a living kitchen/dining room and a principal bedroom with glorious views.

The main house includes an entrance hall with double entrance doors and a cloakroom with a separate w.c. A sitting room lies off to the right with terracotta floor tiles and a real fire. Double doors lead off to the living kitchen with bespoke Andrew Williamson oak cupboards, an Aga, integrated appliances with granite and Corian surfaces. A large granite topped island has a breakfast bar and the kitchen extends into a living area for informal dining and has a conservatory style sitting area beyond with a triple aspect, superb views and two sets of French doors opening to the rear terraces.

A formal dining room lies off the kitchen with a service door, a French door to the rear gardens and opens off the hall adjoining the stunning triple aspect formal lounge. This drawing room features bi-fold doors to the rear terrace and again, has breathtaking southerly views. A fitted study with a work station lies off the lounge and has its own door to the garden.

There is a bedroom wing off the hall and a wine store. The bedrooms in this section of the house include the master suite with a dressing room, a guest suite and two further bedrooms sharing a house bathroom. A further bedroom suite is accessed via the staircase leading up from the sitting room with it's adjoining shower room.

A second entrance lobby lies in the west wing with a cloakroom and w.c. A door from the lobby leads to a long hallway with double glass doors off to a gym. This has patio doors giving a wonderful view to the hills and access to the rear terrace. The utility room lies beyond the gym, is well appointed and also has a garden door. The hallway provides internal access to the triple garage and to the guest wing.

The guest wing has an independent entrance to the west of the house and this opens to a hall with a cloakroom and w.c. A staircase leads up to the first floor and a door opens to the large living room with a dining area and a well appointed kitchen area with contemporary gloss finish cupboards and integrated appliances. Large double glazed windows provide superb views. On the first floor there are two bedrooms off a landing, both with a cathedral style windows with southerly and westerly views, and a guest bathroom with a separate shower.

The studio/office has a separate external access and would easily accommodate staff or a nanny. There is a kitchenette and an en-suite washroom.

The gardens have been mentioned earlier and include a hard tennis court and a sizeable garden garage with a workshop and a gardeners w.c. The gardens include rolling lawns and have a parkland style with some magnificent specimen trees. A tributary to the Sulby river runs parallel to the long entrance drive which has a turning /parking area to the front of the house.
