Travel into Kirk Michael from Douglas along the TT course. Continue through the village, passing the school and Mitre Public House on the right. Continue past the shops and take a sharp left turn into Balleira Road which leads down to the beach. Ballyre House is clearly named and approached via a private concrete driveway with ample parking and turning space to the right.

A wonderful opportunity to purchase a traditional Victorian family house in a pleasant semi rural location just minutes from Kirk Michael's amenities which include a village shop/newsagents, Post Office, butchers, chemist, tearooms, saddlery, petrol station, primary school, church, friendly pub and various halls which host a range of activities throughout the year. Balleira Road is set just off the famous TT course but benefits from a Victorian Bridge which enables pedestrian access, along the old railway line to Glen Wyllin - a local camp site and play area which adjoins the coast road - just outside of the course. Ideal for race week! Glen Wyllin is a great spot for young families. A walk down Balleira and along the beach can also end at Glen Wyllin's shop - perfect on a summers evening. Entrance to beach pictured.
