For Sale – Douglas Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottages (c) 2015 Mr J. Shutler

Over on the Isle of Man we have these gems for sale. A rare opportunity to acquire a unique, Victorian coastal residence with breathtaking views. To have a very general idea of the location and arrangement of this unusual lighthouse complex.

Jetty & Moorings Included In Sale – Douglas Head (c) 2015 Mr J. Shutler 

This fabulous property is located at the tip of the beautiful and peaceful Douglas Head on the Isle of Man. This residence enjoys genuinely stunning, unobstructed sea views across the surrounding coastline and, on a clear day, over to the Lake District. The property includes a large private courtyard, plus a garden, and that very rare of things, a jetty and moorings. This home really does make for idyllic living. A delight for anyone who loves water recreational pursuits, and/or marine wildlife spotting

This former Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s House, and the Assistant Lighthouse Keeper’s House have been joined together to form one, extensively refurbished and deceptively large home. Though not too big to lose that cosy feeling.

This is a property which is a must for viewing by anyone who likes coastal living. Depending on a new owner’s preference, this one luxury home could be reverted back to two dwellings. That may be of interest to someone looking for an interesting investment property for holiday letting. Or alternatively living in one building as a unique home for the new owner, whilst deriving a very useful income from the second property as a holiday rental unit. For holiday visitors, the Isle of Man has lots to see and do…

Interior Home Comforts – Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottages (c) 2015 Mr J. Shutler

Douglas Head Lighthouse Cottage’s current layout – as one large single dwelling – has a nice cosy sitting room, large dining kitchen (with spectacular views), 4 substantial double sized bedrooms (one currently used as a second sitting room). Plus 2 bathrooms and a second kitchen. There is also a large, useful outbuilding included as part of the sale. The house has lovely high ceilings and period features, including sash windows, throughout.

With this fine property, a new owner has the best of both worlds – despite its tranquil location, the house is just a 15 minute walk from the island capital town of Douglas with shops and a range of facilities. Also Douglas includes a marina and is the islands main hub for transport on the island and ferry services to the mainland.

Please Note: The lighthouse tower is NOT for sale. It is the Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s Dwelling plus the Assistant Lighthouse Keeper’s Dwelling that ARE FOR SALE. At this time BOTH of these buildings have been joined to form ONE marvellous and sizeable home. It is certainly possible to return them to the original two dwellings if that arrangement is preferable to a new owner. Any questions, please feel free to ask.
