Oh I do like to be beside the seaside…

WORDS Sara Felton

Number two Green Island Cove is a simply stunning home which is literally within a stones throw of the beach at Green Island and the sea beyond, so close I’m sure you could skim stones on a high tide.  This house is one hundred percent all about its location and the lifestyle it will afford those who love the sea. You’re so close that you could be paddleboarding as the sun rises before hopping onto the coast road to commute into town.

Just imagine waking up every morning and overlooking one of the island’s prettiest beaches from this spacious recently constructed four-bedroom home. It has been designed for family living, and to make the very best of the visual and physical connection to the beach at Green Island.  Due to its recent build the house enjoys all the latest mod cons including energy efficient electric heating and extremely high levels of insulation making it very economical to run. Forming part of a select close of four similar properties the house is approached via a private driveway just off the St Clement’s coast road.

A gate from the garden gives direct access to the car park and beach in front and you’re also only a few steps from the fabulous Green Island Restaurant, which is so close that you’d possibly never have to dirty your own kitchen.

Internally the accommodation is arranged over three floors with the largest rooms all facing out to sea to make the very best of that to die for view.  On the ground floor there is a luxurious family kitchen and dining area which has plenty of space for entertaining family and friends. There are also doors leading onto the patio and garden, great for morning coffee or al-fresco dining when the sun shines. The ground floor also includes a generously sized entrance hall and fourth bedroom, which would work equally well as a study or home office. There is also a bathroom on this floor which is ideal for those who may want to take a early morning sea swim and shower before they head upstairs.  A large utility room and access to the double garage can also be found on this level.

Moving onto the first floor you’ll find the living room with doors opening out onto a large south-facing balcony. In the summer this will extend the lounge space making it perfect for enjoying sundowners. On this floor there are also two double bedrooms and a shared bathroom, both of the bedrooms have modern fitted wardrobes and plenty of storage space.

Moving up to the third floor you’ll find the spectacular master suite, which has a huge ensuite, dressing room and plenty of storage and another large south facing balcony.  The current owners have also installed a small kitchenette here which means there’s no need to head down to the kitchen to make your cup of coffee in the morning, meaning the enjoyment of your view will not be hampered and instead can simply be indulged.

As you’d expect of a home beside the sea Green Island Cove is south facing, which means you’ll be able to bask in the sunshine from the privacy of your garden, which has been laid to Astroturf for low maintenance. Of course you’ve also got the added bonus of the sheltered beach which is another suntrap and probably why everyone loves it so much. The beach is soft sand and there are plenty of rocks for children to play on and around, should they wish to explore when the tide is low.

Number two Green Island Cove is a fantastic home with plenty of storage and space for as many kayaks, paddleboards, bikes and boating paraphernalia as you want! When the tide is up you can be in the water within seconds from your doorstep, and minutes when it’s out! This really is a dream spot for lovers of the ocean and of course St Helier is only a 15 minute drive away too, what more could you want…
