Long gone are the days when a home by the sea meant cottage or Cape Cod. We live in an era where many new build properties are celebrating modern architecture, embracing the landscape in which they are built and proving that coastal living can be modern, chic and totally contemporary.
Treasures of the Earth is one of these properties. Situated at L’Etacq, with a short walk to the beach and with uninterrupted sea views over St Ouen’s Bay, the property is a testament to contemporary design and is the epitome of modern island living in relaxed luxury.
Formally an old warehouse, Treasures of the Earth has been lovingly restored by a team of local tradesmen, who have made the utmost effort to ensure that the future residents of this property will completely fall in love with it. Having met one of them on my visit to the property, it’s evident how much time and passion has gone into the project, which undeniably translates to the level of quality and character this building possesses.
Elevated on top of its own integral double garage, the design concept of this property is to maximise light and space, all the while showcasing the captivating views over St Ouen’s Bay. The atmosphere inside is tranquil and relaxing with bright white walls and grey fittings, paired with copious amounts of glass to allow for natural light to stream through the property.
At the heart of the house, the kitchen and living area takes your breath away with its open design concept. A south west facing glass wall envelops the interior space, exposing the grand views to bring the outside in. On the other side of the glass, the large balcony makes the most of the evening sun, as intense evening light is cast into the property as the sun sets over the bay.
The space is practically begging for an interior design-savvy individual to have immense enjoyment whilst styling this room. A state-of-the-art freestanding wood burner sits at the edge of the living area, and although it’s easy to imagine this space being enjoyed in the warmer months, Treasures of the Earth has been designed with all seasons in mind. With its all mains (no gas) and under floor heating throughout, an air flow heat pump and full double glazing, one can only imagine how blissful it would be to look out onto the frosty fields from the comfort of this space. For the summertime, a set of bifolding doors next to the kitchen area open out into an enclosed and private courtyard, perfect for alfresco dining or providing a safe place for children to play.
The kitchen itself is of minimalist design, with high specification Siemens home appliances, including Wi-Fi enabled hob and oven, and pop-up worktop extractor. The property’s interconnectivity even extends to its lighting, where the home lighting system offers a full colour range, enabling residents to create a unique atmosphere in this space that perfectly suits their style of living. A separate utility room and walk-in larder means that any clutter can be hidden away, ensuring this space remains in keeping with its design.
There are three bedroom suites at Treasures of the Earth, as well as a study next to the house bathroom which could easily be converted into a fourth ensuite if desired. All positioned off a long corridor, the first bedroom away from the kitchen would make an ideal guest bedroom, or for a young child. The next bedroom along is almost identical, with a slightly larger bathroom and dressing area. Fabulous for the eldest child, a mezzanine level within the bedroom overlooks the garden and surrounding fields, providing the perfect space for a teenagers snug or study.
The master suite is a showstopper in its own right. A beautifully finished bedroom with four large skylights that filter in the natural sunlight, make this room the wonderfully tranquil space you’d expect from a property of this standard. What takes this room to next level luxury however, is the ensuite bathroom. It’s as if you have a door to your own private spa, as you walk into the exceptionally finished space with sensory steam room, free standing bath, his and hers sinks, enormous rainfall shower and interchangeable lighting.
The property has an impressive landscaped, terraced garden with large flat grass and patio areas to sit and enjoy the spectacular views over the agricultural land and out towards the sea. Ideal for small children to play, or for a family with pets, the garden provides plenty of opportunities for those who enjoy outdoor space.
Treasures of the earth is an undeniably unique property that emanates style and luxury with an exceptional design and attention to detail throughout. Ideally suited to a modern family, or as a lock up and leave, this property is unlikely to stay on the market for long, so viewing early comes highly recommended.
