A rare example of a traditional Guernsey farmhouse set in beautiful countryside.
A lovely farmhouse property of mixed age which has been lovingly maintained and includes ancillary accommodation for extended families or those seeking live-in help. Standing in a small sheltered valley with rural outlooks on all sides, Les Blicqs is one of a few similar properties in an area which is largely untouched by modern development.
While having some original features dating back some three hundred years or so, such as a wonderful Inglenook fireplace, the main frontage is more Georgian in style with attractive windows, good ceiling heights and enhanced natural light levels.
A delightful kitchen opens on to an inner courtyard with a conservatory at one end that links to a converted barn, which is currently used as a family/games area with a mezzanine floor. A further detached stone farm building has been converted to provide a two room ground floor office, with a one bedroom apartment over.
There are attractive formal and cottage gardens surrounding the main house that include, lawns, gravelled and paved areas, a pergola, flower and shrub beds, and an ornamental koi pond. The outlying grounds are parkland in style and laid to grass interspersed with mature trees; leading on to a large outlying field. Other building include garaging, garden stores and a laundry room.
Les Blicqs represents a rare example of a traditional Guernsey farmhouse with obvious appeal to those looking for a characterful home in beautiful countryside.
