A contemporary twist on a classic

This impressive four bedroom, high quality, converted granite farmhouse has been lovingly renovated and extended. The developers behind the project have not only paid attention to all of the up to date modern details you’d want from a property like Holly Lodge, but they’ve also retained the original Oak beams, which complement the modern theme of this vast property.

The exterior of the property boasts the original date stone, you’ll also see dotted around the salvaged beams and the horseshoes which would have been nailed in by the original owners for good luck.

Located only a short drive to village amenities and five minutes by car to your choice of two of the islands finest beaches and with rural views over unspoilt agricultural land in St Ouen. This is a perfectly situated property for those who long to be away from the hustle and bustle of island life. It is close to all the amenities of St Quen’s village and on a regular bus route, whilst town is just a 25 minute drive away for those commuting to work.

The development work has been carried out using only the finest materials to make this a truly one off stunning, low maintenance, high efficiency family home in the country.  As soon as you walk through the front door you are struck by the peaceful environment the property provides, the soft feel underfoot of the porcelain tiling in the entrance hall is welcoming and the light installation suspended from the third floor really is a feature in itself, each glass orb has been handcrafted and is individually strung, adding a real wow factor as you enter Holly Lodge. 

Off to the right you have the crown jewel in this property, a kitchen / dining room that would keep any home, or professional, chef happy for hours.  The kitchen was designed and installed by La Haute Cuisine and has been created with entertainment in mind.  You won’t find a single wasted space amongst the endless supply of cupboards and draws, all hand finished and soft closing.  Even the softly rounded corner cabinets are functional, making this a real dream come true for those who love to cook.  There is also space to house a significantly sized dining table, meaning that your guests won’t be far away from you, or the under counter wine fridge.  Even the fridge is a delight, this and the other high quality appliances, are top of the range and have functionality you may only ever have dreamed of before.

With double doors leading on to the south facing patio area you really do have the most incredible flexible entertaining space within this property. The patio provides a great al fresco dining option and is wired for electrics and home to the date stone and archway of the original property, which have both been lit to provide a spectacular feature when the sun sets. Just off the kitchen diner is the spacious lounge area, a light and airy room perfect for relaxing in once you’re finished entertaining in the kitchen. The downstairs also has a further reception room which would lend itself to many uses, perhaps a playroom, a formal dining room, or even a gym, the choice is very much yours.

On the second of the three floors you’ll further discover just how flexible the living accommodation is within this property.  Firstly the impressive Master suite and dressing room, fitted with a vast selection of built in wardrobes, a luxury en suite, incorporating a large walk in shower, his and hers wash basins set in Silestone worktops, enough space to tango in, if you would wish to. A further double room, with another beautifully finished en suite bathroom and a further two rooms, one which would make an excellent cinema room or man den for the tech savvy homeowners and a smaller room, which would make an excellent home office, nursery or even a craft room.

Moving up to the third floor you really get to experience just how well the space within this property has been used.  There are a further two double bedrooms, both with en suites.  One of which could easily provide a self contained option, for those with growing children wanting a little bit of privacy.  This larger bedroom, has a Juliet balcony with beautiful rural views, light flooding in from the Velux windows and room for a walk in wardrobe that would be the envy of many.  This floor also hides a further door, which leads in to a large floored storage area, perfect for all those essentials you need, but don’t want to see on a daily basis. To the exterior there is also a good sized level lawned garden, separate patio areas around the house, a double integral garage, and generous parking facilities.
