WORDS Imogen Pickering
Cutting-edge contemporary homes reflect the very best of modern architecture, and 2 Clos De La Ferme Rose is certainly no exception. Designed by Godel Architects and built just four years ago, the St Brelade based property boasts approximately ⅓ acre of architectural masterpiece, set within the confines of an exclusive residential close.
Local architects and designers continue to push the boundaries and reimagine how we live by using tight angles, multi-level surfaces, floor-to-ceiling picture windows and innovative design schemes. Contemporary living adheres to a few principles that define its simple aesthetic: open-floor plans, clean lines, minimal clutter, and a neutral color palette. These elements are key to a serene and sophisticated lifestyle, which 2 Clos De La Ferme Rose encapsulates perfectly.
Tucked away in a countryside location accessed from Route des Genets, the property is one of four prestigious homes built on the former Rose Farm campsite. Accessed via a set of electronically operated gates, the property boasts an array of spacious and meticulously-designed outdoor spaces; the first of which greets you as you arrive at the property.
A sizeable paved driveway offers parking for 8+ cars, in front of an impressive abri-soleil terrace casts striking shadows over the al fresco dining area, to give a breathtaking sense of arrival. Overlooking the property’s second impressive courtyard on the lower ground floor, it’s immediately evident before even entering the building that this property possesses extremely high levels of design sophistication.
Entering through the front door, you are met with a bright and spacious entrance hall, with a grand floating staircase ahead of you. To the right, the formal living room occupies the east wing of the upper ground floor, complete with a beautiful freestanding wood burner stove. A set of sliding doors open onto the property’s upper ground floor terrace, extending for the width of the house and offering further al fresco dining solutions, overlooking the garden and valley beyond.
On the other side of the entrance hall, the breathtaking eat-in kitchen is filled with natural light, thanks to the double-height floor-to-ceiling window, with bifolding doors which open out onto the terrace. A large Corian topped island occupies the centre, with plenty of room for a large family dining table ahead of it. The kitchen comes complete with all of the high specification appliances you would expect from a property of this standard, including two conventional ovens, steam oven, induction hob, microwave and wine cooler.
What was originally an additional terrace has since been converted into a conservatory that now adjoins the kitchen. All encompassing glass seamlessly brings the outside in, offering a bright and tranquil space, with spectacular views over the garden and surrounding grounds. Behind the kitchen, a smaller reception room provides space for a snug or formal dining room, as well as access to the abri soleil terrace at the front of the property.
Upstairs, an enormous mezzanine level overlooking the kitchen comprises the property’s playroom. With plenty of eaves storage and glass balustrade providing a view into the space from the dining area below, it’s the perfect solution for a family orientated household, particularly those with young children.
The other half of the top floor provides the space for large office, again with plenty of eaves storage. With a house bathroom located next door, this space could easily convert into an additional bedroom, providing an ideal environment for guests, or live-in staff, away from the rest of the house.
All of the five bedrooms in this property are located on the ground floor, providing a cool setting away from the otherwise heavily glass-orientated house. All with impressive ensuite bathrooms and generous wardrobe space, the property very comfortably offers high specification sleeping quarters for the whole family and visiting guests. Arguably the most noteworthy, the master bedroom suite and the opposing second bedroom both benefit from large dressing rooms, enormous dual sink ensuites and direct access to the garden.
The large lawned garden sits directly in front of the north-facing side of the property. With minimal maintenance, the flower beds lining the perimeter boast an array of mature trees and plants, with the dormant trees at the far end of the lawn allowing a view to the valley during the winter.
2 Clos De La Ferme Rose is an exceptional family home that effortlessly combines signature design with versatility and functionality. New to the market with Wilsons, an opportunity such as this seldom knocks twice, so prompt viewing comes highly recommended.
