Maughold sits in an elevated position beside Low Killantrae Farm. The property has stunning views over surrounding farmland, Luce Bay and on a clear day the Mull of Galloway peninsula and The Isle of Man can be seen in the distance. Maughold is a substantial three bedroom bungalow, which has been extended in recent years. The addition of a Conservatory has created the perfect place to admire the view and watch the sun set. Maughold sits under a tiled roof, is heated by oil fired central heating with additional underfloor heating in both the Conservatory and Bathroom. The property is double glazed throughout. The oil fired Aga in the kitchen provides a continuous supply of hot water. The Annexe is currently being used as an office, but with the separate Shower Room and central heating the annexe could provide secondary accommodation for extended family or visitors. The byre provides outside storage space, it was previously used to house livestock and many of the original features are still there.
