About this property

  • La Carriere is a magnificent example of a traditional manorial Longhouse dating back to the 16th century and stands in an unspoilt hamlet on the edge of the island's spectacular south coast cliffs. This imposing property takes its name from the quarry that provided the granite for its original construction over five hundred years ago.

    More recently a reconstruction project spanning four years established new benchmarks in terms of quality of craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Works at this time included the complete underpinning of original walls, the addition of sympathetic extensions, the raising of a whole new oak framed roof, and the excavation of cellar space.

    The historic and attractive form of the dressed and random granite elevations are matched for character inside with a superb array of carved stone features, inglenook fireplaces, flagged floors and wood panelling.

Magnificent example of a traditional manorial Longhouse.
