What price can you put on one of the greatest and most celebrated Isle of Man TT viewing spots ever?

A rare opportunity to purchase an iconic piece of Manx history – Kate’s Cottage (official name is Kepple Gate Cottage) is situated on the Isle of Man tt Course, ideal for keen motorcyclists and offering amazing rural views over the surrounding countryside and Douglas Bay. Two areas of garden to the front and two parking areas to the rear to take six vehicles.
It looks pretty stunning from the outside, and the views of the Manx countryside are breathtaking.
They’re not lying when they say that it could do with a little bit of ‘modernisation’ though.
But something tells us that whoever buys this little place won’t be doing it for the interior decor…
Because THIS is the kind of view of the yearly TT races you could get!
Try this on for size!
Now, who fancies chipping in for an Motofire/crowdsourced holiday home? (We’re booking out May and June though!).
