Melview, Ballaragh Road, Laxey


Beautifully located in the eastern village of Laxey, Isle of Man, sits the dramatically situated contemporary residence of Melview, offering a new perspective on refined contemporary living. The calm village surroundings pervade the entire house, offering uninterrupted panoramic sea views and dematerialising the boundaries between the interior and exterior.

Just minutes from the UK, and with borders re-opening this summer, residents of the Isle of Man enjoy the peace of mind that the Island is one of the safest places to live in Europe with very low crime rates, and that children will receive high standard of education in one of the top-quality public or private schools such as the brilliant Laxey School located just a stone’s throw away from this idyllic property.

Presented in faultless decorative order throughout using a calming neutral palette and offering an incomparable living experience, the property is set in landscaped grounds of approximately one acre and is distinguished by a spectacular 45 (13m) triple aspect living room with vaulted ceiling and a lavishly equipped 28 (8m) kitchen/dining room, together with a sitting room/TV room, games room and study and five generously proportioned en-suite double bedrooms.

Additionally, planning permission has been granted for an extension to create a recreation room. The property boasts extensive balconies and terraces from which to enjoy the magnificent coastal views, while a wealth of discreetly integrated sophisticated smart home technology adds to the comfort and convenience, including Lutron PIR lighting and a Systemline multi-room audio system. The property is situated in an elevated position in Ballaragh Road on the outskirts of Laxey village, conveniently located a short car drive from Douglas to the south and Ramsey to the north.

At 33 miles long and 13 miles wide, the Isle of Man is a secluded treasure in the heart of the Irish Sea, and Laxey is the perfect reflection of this remote way of living next door to city life. Lap up the truly stunning environment and nearby beaches, or kick back in on of the village’s independent coffee shops safe in the knowledge that you are never far away from the Island’s capital of Douglas.

Laxey is also home to the Island’s most dramatic tourist attraction, the Great Laxey Wheel or Lady Isabella, as she is also known. As the largest surviving waterwheel of its kind in the world, it is a feat of Victorian engineering and ingenuity. People can watch the mighty wheel turn and climb to the top for panoramic views across Glen Mooar Valley.

The dedicated Locate Isle of Man team would be delighted to help you through the relocation process.
