A most distinguished residence set in elevated position overlooking mature grounds of some 5.2 acres. Ownership of the property has not changed in over fifty years and is indeed a unique opportunity for any discerning purchaser. The original property dates back to the 1600's, with the larger main house being added in 1762, as evidenced by the date stone on the door lintel. The current owner sympathetically incorporated the barn and coach house to create a gallery and the splendid five-arch cloister room, thereby creating the beautiful residence which exists today. There are five reception rooms, including the 43' cloister room, with a magnificent vaulted ceiling, five glazed full height arches with doors to garden and, a large granite fireplace, two galleries, morning room, kitchen, several domestic rooms including kitchen, summer/pool room, four bedrooms, guest-suite, housekeepers flat and staff flat. Of particular note are the impressive grounds: the sweeping driveway approach is lined with Magnolia trees, the main garden is sloping south and, together with Jersey's renowned micro climate, makes the perfect environment in which many exotic flora can flourish. The owner has more than a keen interest in horticulture and has based the formal gardens on the famous gardens at Montserrat. There is also a paddock, tennis court and swimming pool. In addition to the main residence there are two semi-detached granite cottages with garaging, yard and gardens.
