Trinity residents will have noticed a great deal of disturbance at the top of Bouley Bay. The one time Mount Hotel which has played host to many weddings, christenings and other family occasions and which was so popular with the younger parishioners, and especially the Young Farmers? Club is reborn as an exclusive gated development of luxurious yet affordable one, two and three bedroom units.
Although situated in a peaceful rural location on the north coast The Mount is within walking distance of the Trinity Arms, a local convenience store and of course the beach at Bouley Bay. Across the road is the Jardin D?Olivet with cliff paths and of course stunning views towards the coast of France.
Because of the nature of the development there really is something for everyone at the Mount. There are three one bedroom apartments with prices starting from £258,000 which include private parking, guest parking, a block built store and a large landscaped communal garden.
The jewel in the crown is a fabulous apartment located in what used to be the old restaurant. This unit includes two double bedrooms (both with ensuite bathrooms) a fabulous kitchen with granite surfaces and features, a house cloakroom, a drawing room and a huge conservatory overlooking its own large private gardens. Unusually this unit has its own front and rear doors.
The old pub has been replaced with a very large and contemporary two bedroom apartment with solid French oak floors and open plan receptions. This unit includes two very chic sunken courtyard areas for low maintenance alfresco dining.
Other units include a three bedroom cottage, a very spacious ground floor apartment with a large private garden and a three bedroom apartment with a huge elevated terrace which benefits from sea and country views. Because of the unusual layout of this unit it could also suit a two generation family.
Unusually for Jersey the Mount has not been overdeveloped. The owners have worked with Carlo Riva of Riva Architects to keep, for the main part, all of the units within the existing structure. This has left plenty of room for private gardens for 40% of the units and a more than generous and beautifully landscaped communal garden for the remaining units. The parking allocation is generous and every unit benefits from a blockbuilt store. Conveniently placed around the development are wall mounted hoses for watering the gardens and cleaning the residents? cars.
The developers have worked closely with David Hick who has provided all of the furniture in the show flats which are tastefully decorated and which include carpets, curtains and all fitted light fittings.
This is an unusual opportunity to buy an apartment in one of the country parishes as most of the developments in recent years have been in town or on the outskirts. Forty percent of the units are now under offer.
