Travel out of Ramsey along Lezayre Road, passing the schools and continuing along, taking the first right turn into Gardeners Lane. Follow the road along to the roundabout then take the second exit onto Poyll Dooey Road then turn left immediately in the direction of the nature reserve. Upon reaching the parking area, continue straight ahead (sign posted 'No Vehicular Access) where the property will be found a short distance along on the right, being well set back from the lane.

NB It may be worth noting that during times such as TT Week, when Lezayre Road is closed for racing, an access road is opened on Greenlands Avenue which provides an alternative route to Ramsey town centre.

Poylldooey House and barn are set in approximately 2 acres on the edge of Ramsey town within a popular nature reserve. Limited vehicle access ensures privacy whilst it is possible to walk into town via a pathway through the reserve itself. The spacious accommodation is presented in excellent order and has the benefit of a lime render to the exterior. The current owners have a good eye for detail and have added many pleasing features over the years including a superb 'Amdega' orangery, two more recent bathrooms (as at 2021) and a electric 'total control' Aga. The house sits within formal gardens with private patios, a large kitchen garden with a quality 'Hartley Botanic' greenhouse, orchard, woodland and large pond in addition to an 'in and out' driveway with a large parking area. The separately accessed barn offers an exciting opportunity, having previously been granted planning approval for conversion into a separate dwelling. At present, the barn provides a spacious garage, a fully decorated studio/ home gym/ office (registered for business use), workshop and various other out buildings/ pens with a small paddock alongside.
