WORDS Lucy Sanderson
What happens when you mix opulence with homeliness? This stunning property, that’s what. Distinct features of farmhouse-chic blended perfectly with all the modernity of a brand new build, Tesson House on La Rue Des Pres Sorsoleil is really rather unique.
Elevated in amongst the treetops of St Lawrence, this property boasts remarkable views and ample light and space. Considerately laid out, the rooms are large and the outdoor areas are plentiful and cleverly thought out. Each window presents a picture-perfect opportunity to take in the greenery and the scenery; every aspect lends itself to a formidable view, so if you like nature then this home is certainly for you.
From the outside one can see the property is something special, but inside there is a sense of space that is something to behold. Vaulted ceilings and voluminous rooms mean the whole family can enjoy their own special part of the house. Tesson House is a beautiful, luxurious hideaway that evokes a real feeling of ‘getting away from it all’.
Featuring four large bedrooms, the home would make for an ideal family bolt-hole and with its unique status, this property can be sold to anyone looking to live in Jersey. Of course, the price tag reflects this, but how do you put a price on perfection?
There is no pretention about Tesson House; the property is the ultimate luxury pad, yet it retains a true homeliness. The four large bedrooms are complimented by beautifully opulent marble in the bathrooms and fixtures and fittings fit for a King or Queen. Again, the designers have managed to create this opulent feel whilst integrating it into what feels like a perfect family home.
The kitchen is an impressive space, with a specification to rival any high net-worth home. La Cornue range of kitchen utilities set the tone for highly modern kitchen usability and the decor is the ultimate in stunning home-styling. To the rear of the property and flowing directly out from the kitchen is the über-private and totally tranquil sun terraces, lawn and hot tub area. The outdoors of Tesson House offering complete privacy; surrounded by trees and plants and positioned over a peaceful woodland setting. Look out to find all manner of wildlife, especially the red squirrels who feed and flit about the treetops right outside.
There is ample parking, an enclosed garage and also two acres of woodland to roam around in. Should the need be there, the bus stop is right outside and there is a private footpath to the beach nearby. Easy access to St Helier, to St Aubin and the surrounding area – not that you’d realise once you’re at Tesson House because the privacy is truly spectacular.
In addition to the house itself, this property also features a one bedroom apartment, perfect for generational living or for on-site staff to be accommodated very comfortably indeed.
If you have a cool £3.45million to spend, all you really need to move in are some wellies and a whimsical love of nature…
