Tax breaks, fantastic healthcare and the ultimate in luxury living. Joanna Orton, marketing director of Dandara, explains why the Isle of Man should be top of the list for property investment

Sitting pretty in the middle of the Irish Sea, between England and Ireland, the Isle of Man is a hidden gem of the British Isles. 33 miles long by 13 miles wide, the Island bene­fits from a temperate climate, excellent standard of healthcare and education, and the lowest crime rate in the British Isles.

The Island is also one of Europe’s most successful economies, enjoying over 30 years’ consecutive growth. Political stability and a business-friendly government have also helped to secure its reputation as a leading international business centre; and with no restrictions on residency or property ownership, no capital gains or inheritance tax, and a top rate of personal tax of 20%, capped at £125,000 per annum, it’s also attracting an increasing number of high value residents.

Catering to the needs of this discerning market is the multi-award winning property developer Dandara, whose ‘Premier Collection’ residences can be found in the most exclusive locations the Island has to offer, providing the ultimate in luxury living.


Set within an acre of private landscaped grounds, and providing an impressive 9,600 square feet of living space, The Henley delivers style and luxury in equal measure. This imposing classically proportioned home in the Georgian style, is situated within the exclusive ‘Ballanard Woods’ gated community of award-winning luxury homes.

From the show-stopping double-height entrance hall, to each of the four elegantly proportioned reception rooms, this exquisite residence has a unique allure. The bespoke hand-crafted kitchen features Kashmir granite worktops, handmade cabinets and the latest integrated appliances by premium manufacturers Gaggenau and Miele, along with a separate wine cellar so you’ll never need to worry about running out of your favourite Bordeaux.

There are five spacious bedrooms plus an additional self-contained guest suite; each featuring sumptuous ensuite Villeroy & Boch bathrooms, with the master suite also benefitting from a fully-fitted walk-in wardrobe and dressing area for an added touch of luxury.

With electronic gates and screened by mature trees, it’s hard to believe that this secure, private oasis lies just a mile from the bustle of the Islands’ capital.


In a secluded, picturesque coastal setting just outside the charming village of Kirk Michael on the island’s west coast, lies Cooil Dharry, a luxurious six-bedroom country residence.

Just 12 miles from the capital Douglas, 30 minutes from the island’s Private Jet Terminal and airport, and offering easy access to the rest of the Island’s key locations, Cooil Dharry provides the perfect combination of seclusion and accessibility.

Designed with the discerning homeowner in mind, this unique property provides over 11,000 square feet of accommodation and separate staff quarters set within 6.5 acres of grounds.

From the grand entrance hall with its triple-height ceiling and majestic sweeping staircase to the elegantly proportioned living accommodation and heated indoor swimming pool and spa, this spectacular country home is without comparison where innovative design and superb attention to detail combine to create a truly distinctive home.
