|Further details indoors|
The upper floor was where the original owner entertained his male friends with billiards or banqueting. This was, and has now been restored to, a delightful living area with an ornate coved ceiling, an exact replica of the Georgian original.
The original fireplace now contains a wood burning stove (wood provided). The tiles on the hearth were found below the porch during excavations.
The floor in the porch, also discovered during the works, is slate in the shape of an oval billiard table.
The slate cladding on the outside of the upper part of the building, very unusual in the Isle of Man, was mostly still in situ.
The ground floor was the coach house, which has now been converted to:
Master bedroom with king size bed and built-in wardrobe. French windows from this room open onto a paved patio.
Twin bedroom also with built in wardrobe.
Bathroom with bath and separate shower. The washing machine is also housed in a built-in cupboard in the bathroom.
The back door on this level opens onto large lawned area with picnic table suitable for a barbeque.
A ground source heat pump provides a constant supply of hot water and underfloor heating for the property.

The Isle of Man region
The Isle of Man is a gem in the centre of the British Isles. Because of the Gulf Stream the climate is milder than the neighbouring countries. A self governing Crown dependency, we have our own bank notes (on a par with the Pound) and postage stamps. The Island boasts the world's largest water wheel, 2 castles, excellent museums, stunning scenery, horse trams, steam and electric railways.
The Coach House is close to the stunning west coast of the Isle of Man. Set in the rural plains of the central valley and at the foot of Peel Hill, the Coach House is an ideal base for walking and other outdoor activities, yet also close to the amenities of Peel and the main, and historic, transport networks.
Walking: the steam train heritage trail is close by as is Peel Hill, the coastal footpath (Raad Ny Foillan), and various other inland walks, gardens and arbouretum.
Peel is 2 miles away (shops, bank, post office, churches, castle, museum, Cathedral, House of Mannanan, golf course, WiFi at the Western Swimming Pool or the Toy Box). See Peel Online for more about the Peel community.
St Johns is 1½ miles away (shop and post office, tearoom, church, Tynwald Hill, Tynwald Craft Centre).
Wildlife: the area boasts a fine array of wildlife, including choughs, hen harriers, seals and basking sharks.
