Regarded as one of Jersey’s finest homes, this magnificent and distinctive period granite residence is located in a much sought-after part of the island. It stands protected by several acres of beautiful mature parkland gardens and grounds, and is widely recognised as being one of the island’s most spectacular private gardens. A swimming pool and tennis court are set within and there are delightful woodland walking paths, lawns, shrubbery, herbaceous borders, a rose garden and many other features that make this such an interesting and varied property.
On approaching the property, one notices that the front door is a replica of the door at St Ouen’s Manor – the oldest manor house and gardens in Jersey. The residence was built in the early 1900’s, at the request of a noteworthy local resident and is of The Arts and Crafts Movement vernacular, incorporating many unique and appealing features in its design. Over relatively recent years, the property has been subject of a significant, sensitive enhancement and refurbishment scheme and now presents as an outstanding family home. Restoration works have included reroofing of the principal structures.
The 8 bedroom main house (which measures circa 10,452 sq.ft) includes a fine range of elegantly proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms. Upon entering the period features are apparent and add to the charm and character of the spacious residence. The grand entrance hall features hardwood parquet flooring and exposed timber beams and leads into a range of magnificent reception rooms, all featuring comfortable granite fireplaces that are both a functional and aesthetic marvel. Another particularly stunning feature is the first floor billiard room with full cathedral ceiling. There is also generous secondary accommodation in addition to a detached granite-built staff bungalow, currently let to private tenants. Within the grounds, close to the house, is a fine artist’s studio which is currently used as a gym & yoga studio.
