WORDS Imogen Pickering

Jersey is home to some of the best coastal views in Europe. With such picturesque views comes a responsibility for architects to maximise light and space, all the while considering the way in which local families want to live.

Overlooking Portelet Bay, The Fulmar is arguably one of our island’s most prestigious and highly sought-after developments. With far-reaching panoramic views and direct access to the beach, all within a secluded location, The Fulmar really is at the high end of local real estate. On the market with Broadlands, there now presents a fantastic opportunity to own the very best that this development has to offer, in the form of the prestigious, four bedroom penthouse apartment.

Penthouses are synonymous with luxury and 7 The Fulmar is certainly no exception. Despite only being a few years old, the current vendors have taken great pride in the property’s interior, upgrading all amenities to the highest quality throughout. With all the trappings of sophistication and exceptional style, lift access to all floors and the best views in the house; this property really is the ultimate indulgence in high-life living.

Modern architecture relies on a generous use of glass. Studies have shown that homes and offices flooded with light contribute to our quality of life. Throw a spectacular coastal view like Portelet Bay into the mix and this premise becomes essential. Meticulously designed, the ample use of glass at 7 The Fulmar is evident as soon as you step through the front door. A bright and spacious entrance hall is lit by two sets of double glass doors, opening into the kitchen and dining area. Dual aspect floor-to-ceiling windows bring in copious levels of natural light, with attention being immediately drawn to the phenomenal sea view from the south-facing balcony. An additional sizeable terrace runs alongside the west-facing side of the apartment, taking advantage of the evening sun and offering an ideal environment for alfresco dining and entertaining.

Penthouses often differentiate themselves by implementing luxurious amenities, the finest materials and high-end appliances, offering immediate wow-factor and a sense of prestige. With the assistance of esteemed local Interior Designer, Emily Musker of Waddington Architects, no expense has been spared in ensuring this property is anything short of astonishing. The eat-in kitchen, complete with ambiance-lighting and beautiful Corian worktops, has every possible integrated appliance. The flooring running through the living area is top quality Amtico. The curtains and blinds are of the highest quality and the neutral colour scheme is delicately offset by statement features, such as the textured gold tiled wall in the living room.

Aside from the elevated views over the bay, there is little evidence to suggest that this property exists within an apartment building, thanks to its intelligent design and layout over two floors. Towards the rear of the property, an impressive contemporary staircase with glass balustrade leads the way to the lower floor.

It leads to a lower ground landing, where two of the property’s bedrooms are located. The first comprises a square-shaped single bedroom, which is currently being used as a study, but also has great potential to serve as a young child’s bedroom or nursery. Next door, the second bedroom comprises an impressive space, complete with en suite bathroom, fitted wardrobes and its own balcony overlooking the bay, making it an ideal guest suite.

Following the hall toward the master bedroom, you pass a house bathroom, hidden utility, walk-in airing cupboard and a third double bedroom, before arriving at the extraordinary master suite. Immediately, your eyes are drawn to the same fantastic view over the bay, with a set of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors opening out onto another sizable terrace. Hidden out of view and accessed via a short corridor, a walk-in wardrobe and dressing area emanates luxury, providing plenty of fitted storage. The master ensuite bathroom exudes style with freestanding his-and-hers sinks, shower, slate-tiled floor and a marble feature wall. What’s more, a pristine freestanding bath sits proudly on an elevated platform, with a direct view of the bay from another floor-to-ceiling window.

This penthouse apartment at The Fulmar is unquestionably a prestigious and unique property. With The Fulmar continuing to be a highly sought-after and popular residence, prompt viewing with Broadlands comes highly recommended.
