    About this property

    • This most distinctive country mansion occupies an exceptionally secluded and sheltered setting, within unspoilt countryside in the Parish of St Lawrence. The exclusive residential complex is accessed off a long private driveway and affords a high level of security.

      The property stands protected by extensive agricultural lands, woodland, and gardens. The total site area is estimated at circa 39 vergees (approx. 17 acres) forming a compact country estate.

      Completed in 2001, the principal residence, is of French Château style architectural influence, and offers a very comprehensive range of most elegantly proportioned and well-planned family accommodation, which includes a truly stunning double galleried reception hall with feature marble staircase, 4 principal reception rooms, 6-bedroom suites, a fine indoor swimming pool complex and a home cinema.

      Particular attention has been paid to how the property ‘flows' and how the interior relates to the exterior, taking advantage of the properties location, and utilising optimal facilities for family living.

      Set across from a large rear courtyard/forecourt area, is an original granite mews (18th Century), providing 2 delightful self-contained 2-bedroom cottage units, facilitating an excellent guests' facility together with household staff accommodation.

      Within the extensive grounds, is a hard tennis court and a very large and relatively modern agricultural style barn facility, ideal for adaptation as an equine manége or potentially for accommodating a private car collection or similar. The lands extend primarily Eastwards, and a private pathway gives direct access down into Waterworks Valley (Chemin des Moulins) with its network of scenic walking routes.

    A stunning and very impressive home built in a traditional style and situated in the center of St Lawrence.
