The agent commented: “[This is a] stunning castellated cottage, echoing the Scottish baronial style, nestled in the heart of Maughold village triangle, adjacent to the delightful church and surrounding fields.

“With views towards Maughold Head and over Port Mooar, it offers one of the most desirable settings on the island.”
