This is a unique opportunity to acquire a detached 3 bedroom cottage with adjoining annex/restaurant area (formerly Cafe Rosa). The area previously used as a restaurant could easily revert to further accommodation providing a larger residence or this also offers a superb opportunity for someone looking to re-open the restaurant as a trading business.
This fine property is situated in a parkland setting of approximately 1.25 acres of fenced land, ideal for development subject to relevant regulations and planning permission - see info in the description below relating to the previous planning consent which was prior to site being divided into separate plots with the neighbouring plot now being built on.
The accommodation of the annex/restaurant comprises of the large restaurant area, L-shaped kitchen, preparation room and 2 customer WC's. The cottage/owners accommodation on the ground floor enjoys a large sitting room, dining room, utility room and shower room with the three bedrooms being situated on the first floor.
The property is approached by an imposing pillared entrance which is amongst the largest on the tree-lined Lezayre Road. Behind the expansive walled entrance is a large parking area providing extensive parking and turning facilities. The majority of the grounds are lawned which are complemented by fruit trees, a wooded grove and Manx palms. There is also a large detached workshop/external office (5x11m) with electricity connected.
The property requires modernisation, but with a little imagination presents a rare opportunity for the discerning purchaser.
Planning permission was previously held for the erection of an executive dwelling on the bottom paddock, with the area typified by distinctive large country homes. Please note no live approval is in place.
"A quaint Manx Cottage with roaring fire and wooden beams...in need of a makeover. Fabulous large workshop/home office. Beautiful 1.25 acre country setting with rear views to fields. Annex with varied business uses, or use as instant extra living space! Loads of car parking and attractive gardens. Private, peaceful but not far from town. 5 minutes from Sulby School and Ramsey Grammar School. Well worth a look for people with a bit of vision, or a developer. Not many opportunities like this around anymore! Why not book a viewing?"
