Architect-designed coastal residence, with spectacular sea views
This impressive coastal residence enjoys outstanding views set within beautiful landscaped gardens. Re-modelled by Architects in 2017 to maximise the stunning sea views and landscaped gardens, Le Val Lodge now offers a contemporary style of living. The open plan layout is complimented perfectly by a wonderful interior design to create a relaxed and inspiring environment. This large property enjoys one of the finest prominent sea views of the Island's South West coast, available anywhere in Jersey.
The spacious entrance porch, which opens into the hallway, is defined by an impressive galleried landing. The open plan living area allows for both outdoor and indoor living. Large bi-fold doors from the drawing room and French doors from the kitchen lead out onto South West facing terraces, each having a panoramic backdrop of near sea, beach and coastal views. Perfect for enjoying outdoor family entertaining.
The high quality fitted kitchen and living space features a 'Roundhouse' kitchen and include a Gaggenau fridge freezer/glazed wine store. The appliance stack consisting of matched Miele appliances, two convection ovens, microwave/oven, inbuilt steam oven and two large plate warmers. The central island which is an integral part of the kitchen design, includes a Miele induction hob and downdraft extractor. Kitchen furniture also features a wall-mounted contemporary Welsh dresser and two pairs of walnut feature doors comprising pantry areas. The adjoining glazed sunroom has French doors onto the south and west terraces and extensive views of the formal lawn, infinity swimming pool and sea.
The first and second floor accommodation is thoughtfully arranged to suit families. A superb en suite master bedroom has fully glazed French doors onto the south facing roof terrace, flanked by two timber glazed sash windows all overlooking the south garden, pool and sea. Direct access is provided to the primary dressing room and spacious en suite bathroom, with a second dressing room opposite. The principal guest suite is a double aspect room looking south over the garden, beach and sea with west elevation overlooking the pool house, tennis court and tropical garden. Three further double bedrooms suites, plus separate ground and first floor bedroom suites, complete the bedroom accommodation. The architect-designed arrangement enables full enjoyment of the elevated costal views. Le Val Lodge is quite simply a world-class coastal home.
The large office suite is complimented by its own kitchen, these areas of the property also share magnificent views.
The self-contained one bedroom apartment offers spacious living with a kitchen area, shower room and double bedroom, ideal for visiting family, guests or staff.
The bespoke wine store, was supplied by cabinet makers who also designed and built the fitted wardrobes and furniture throughout the property.
The generous South West facing grounds comprise a lawn surrounded by terraces and a formal avenue of square hornbeam shrubs, which lead to the 14 metre infinity pool, described as one of the finest in Jersey. The pool is heated by air source heat pumps or oil. Between the main house and tennis court is the pool house, Jacuzzi and tropical garden which all overlook the citrus terraces of orange and lemon trees. The approach to the property is planted with an orchard of apple trees which straddle the entrance drive. The house is largely set within the centre of its grounds which comprise two acres.
The house has a road frontage of approximately 110metres to La Route des Genets. Entry is gained through double electric gates whilst the walled private courtyard is accessed separately by double electric coach' doors. Both are controlled through Control4.
The property now offered at Le Val Lodge is the result of a process of land assembly by the current owner. Our client has purchased the rear field and created an apple tree orchard, through which the entrance to the property now passes. The courtyard has been reconstructed as part of this new entrance route.
Additional land has also been acquired down the east side of the property. The result of this land assembly places the house centrally within its plot.
Other external works include constructing a 14M swimming pool into the South West-facing garden, to take advantage of the property's view over Quaisne beach and the heritage cliffs behind. Building a tropical garden area in front of the 'Jacuzzi' between the pool house and the tennis court.
Developing the citrus tree terraces within 'Le Petit Four' (the local historic name given to the the shaded bowl in this part of the garden.)
Immaculate throughout, in the most wonderful location.Geri O'Brien
