About this property

  • Unquestionably one of Guernsey's foremost town houses of the Georgian era, built during a particularly prosperous period of the Island's rich history. The finest in a row of three similar homes, this substantial property stands in a prime residential area with views to the front over Cambridge Park and large south facing terraced gardens at the rear.

    The Elms has four floors of accommodation, with an interconnecting lift over three of them, that include a full basement level that opens out into the walled garden. Unusually, the property has three Open Market inscriptions allowing it to be sub-divided for separate occupation - subject to planning.

    The principal rooms display all the grandeur and proportions expected in the reception areas of this period and all are enhanced by characteristic features and large elegant windows providing high natural light levels and some sea views over St Peter Port. The garden level has a traditional stone flagged hallway floor leading off to family rooms including a snug, a large kitchen and two studies.

    The large walled gardens are one of the primary attractions of the property and they fall away in a succession of south facing terraces with an open aspect over the Victorian gardens of Candie Museum. Beautifully tended lawns are interspersed with ornamental shrubs and borders, paved areas for sitting out and taking in the views, a reflecting pond and a large propagation greenhouse.

    On one side of the house a pair of vehicular entrance gates opens to a courtyard, providing parking for a couple of cars, which is partly bounded by an original coach house offering garaging and general storage.

    This is a rare opportunity to purchase an outstanding, characterful home in a sought after location.
