Maison du Jardin is a property with lots going for it, least of all its location. Lovers of the western parishes will want to take note, as this four bedroom house is in a prime spot in St Brelade, within easy reach of all amenities within the vicinity.
Travers Farm Lane is just seconds away from Woodbine Corner stores, known by almost everyone. Turning down by this landmark convenience store onto the Noirmont road, which takes you on to Portelet and Ouaisne, you are just a few hundred meters away from the turning down to this property on the right hand side. It’s proximity to coastal walks and some of the finest beaches on the island makes it an absolute must view for those who agree that ‘west is best’.
The current owners have been in residence for more than 10 years and are only now moving on due to the needs of an ever expanding family. What they are leaving behind is a beautifully presented well built family home, which would easily be moved into straight away. One thing that strikes you as soon as you enter the property is the bright open spaces and generously sized rooms. The hallway alone is large enough to accommodate a desk and bookshelves, making it an excellent space to work from. There is also a large coat room, perfect for storing all of your outdoor clothes and a fabulous downstairs toilet too.
The hallway leads on to the large open plan living and entertaining space, which was opened up by to the current owners looking to make the very best of their home, with a growing family in mind. Although of course that doesn’t limit this house to families as the generous open plan design allows the kitchen, living and dining areas to merge together seamlessly and spill out onto the rear garden, making this a dream house to entertain guests of any age.
The large kitchen is handmade and the clever use of curved edges mean that the granite worksurfaces are both aesthetically pleasing and practical too. There is a feature central island, into which a large NEFF hob is built and there is plenty of space to sit and eat here too. There are not one but two NEFF ovens and a combi microwave and warming draw too, you can just imagine the benefits this will bring to preparing Christmas dinner or large dinner parties. Of course you’ve also got a dishwasher and enough cupboards that will mean you’ll never need to worry about not having enough storage.
Off the kitchen there is what was formerly the laundry room, but has now become a very useful playroom with the laundry being moved into the large garage, also accessed from here. Whilst this house already has plenty of room, these two rooms could easily provide an opportunity to extend the property and, subject to planning permission, make this into a good two generation property or home with income.
The back garden has rather practically been laid with easigrass, which means no need to haul out the lawn mower every few weeks. Instead you have a lawn which remains green and well kept all year round, but fear not as there are still plenty of opportunities for those with green fingers to get their hands dirty, thanks to the surrounding bedding areas. Both serve to make this a lovely outdoor space, with direct access to the main house.
Upstairs there are four well-appointed double bedrooms, all with lovely plantation shutters installed, which mean interior transformations can easily be accommodated, without the need to constantly change your curtains. There is also a large airing cupboard, home to a massive pressurised water tank, which means you’re never going to be out of hot water. There is also access to a large floored loft, which runs the full length of the house and will make for excellent storage.
The generously sized master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and, if you stand on your tiptoes, a distant sea view. It also has an absolutely fabulous luxury en suite bathroom, with double sinks, a beautiful bath and underfloor heating all coming together to make this space a real sanctuary. Worry not though, the house bathroom is of an equally high calibre. Both have been updated by the current owners and are stunning.
With coastal walks, plenty of restaurants, beautiful beaches and excellent transport links all within walking distance Maison du Jardin is an ideal option for either a family or the executive couple.
