Introduction

An Historic House on Jersey set in inspiring gardens & grounds.



Location

There can be few more desirable places in the world to live than Jersey, the most southerly of the British Channel Islands.
With London, Paris and Geneva just a short flight away, and frequent links to all major European destinations, you can enjoy a cosmopolitan lifestyle in a relaxed and unspoilt location without the hassle of living in the city.
Grey Gables lies in the heart of the rural parish of St Brelade in the South west area of Jersey. The property enjoys a peaceful elevated position above La Haule Hill and St Aubin and has excellent access to Jersey Airport. St Aubin and its harbour with many superb restaurants is within easy walking distance and the centre of St Helier is under four miles away.


Description

Grey Gables is a unique property on Jersey because of its exclusive setting in extensive gardens and grounds that in the past have been opened for charity. In addition to the main house there is a 2 bedroom cottage, an indoor swimming complex, the separate 'Bridge Room', garaging and stores in the 7.5 acre private grounds.

The main house is mainly constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof with three striking gable ends characterising the front facade. The property has undergone continual improvement works over the past century and, for example, now features a skilfully crafted conservatory. It is clear to see the dedication and effort that the family have put into the property over time.

Stone steps lead to a substantial front door constructed of solid timber. The entrance hall features exposed timber beams, decorated panelling and a large hearth. The ground floor is well laid out to allow ease of flow; the numerous reception rooms are grouped sensibly around and near to the hall whilst the service wing is consolidated to one side of the house. The reception rooms include two drawing rooms, the dining room, study and the specially constructed conservatory, all of a traditional finish and intricate decorative features.
On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms of which 3 are ensuite and 2 share a further bathroom. There is a very unusual games/snooker room on this floor which is large and which enjoys excellent views over the grounds. On the second floor there are 2 further bedrooms and a self contained 1 bedroom flat with a living room and kitchen.
An extensive basement provides storage and a wine cellar.
Outside there is the Bridge Room, a summer house which has been used until now to play bridge. The bridge room connects to the greenhouses and garaging. The swimming pool complex contains an indoor swimming pool, changing rooms, kitchenette, shower and WC. A gardener's complex includes store rooms and workshops, a rest room, a bathroom and kitchenette. Furthermore, there is a 2 bedroom cottage currently used as the gardener's cottage, and a hard tennis court. Please refer to the floor plans for full details on the layout of the buildings at Grey Gables.

The gardens and grounds are immaculately kept and are compartmentalised by box hedging and borders. The gardens are so striking that they have until now been opened for charity and attracted large numbers of people.
