Sophisticated family living

Les Huguenots sits within the confines of Les Fourneaux Estate; a peacefully quiet and rural location in the ever-popular parish of St Brelade. Encompassed by fields and with the amenities of Les Quennevais just a short drive away, this four-bedroom home is the ideal investment for those in search of a family home, who wish to reap the benefits of living in the west coast of the island.

A stone’s throw away from Corbiere Lighthouse, the circa 2,700 ft² property boasts spacious living accommodation, including 4 double bedrooms and 2 sizeable reception rooms. In an elevated position above its own integral garage, the property sits proudly, set back from the road, encompassed by its impressive gardens.

From the ample driveway, a set of steps lead to the main entrance, where a charming stained glass front door greets you. As you enter the property, you are then met with a bright and spacious entrance hall, with detailed parquet flooring leading the way to the surrounding ground floor rooms.

To the left, a dual aspect dining room comprises the first of the property’s large reception rooms. With a log burner stove in place, the space could easily convert to become a welcoming living room, with plenty of dining space available in the neighbouring kitchen.

The contemporary kitchen is minimal and sleek, with an enormous polished granite island dominating the room. Spacious, well-designed and with plenty of hidden storage, it’s the ideal eat-in living space to compliment family life, without compromising on functionality and style.

From the kitchen, a set of double glass doors open to Les Huguenots’ all-encompassing garden. Low maintenance, decorative and with a myriad of mature trees and plants, it takes me back to fond memories of my childhood in my Grandmother’s garden; exploring the nooks and crannies, watching the visiting wildlife and running around in what felt like an enchanted forest at the time. With its own patio dining area, fish pond and shed, this outdoor sanctuary is perfect for nature lovers who enjoy nothing more than spending quality time in the garden, or dining alfresco with family and friends.

Also on the ground floor are 3 of the property’s double bedrooms, with one of which benefiting from its own en suite bathroom. Sizeable, well-lit and with plenty of fitted wardrobe space in each, there is plenty of opportunity to host guests, utilize as office space, or indeed to accommodate family members and children.

An impressive contemporary staircase adorns the entrance hall. Beautifully slick wooden banisters are contrasted with shiny metal railings, making it a notable feature of the property in its own right. Leading the way to the top floor, it offers a sense to the level of sophistication that exists upstairs, where arguably the property’s most extraordinary rooms are found.

At the top of the stairs, sitting between the master bedroom and the property’s second large reception room, is the upstairs bathroom. Lavishly decorated, the luxurious washroom is like something you would expect to find in a pristine 5-star hotel. Featuring an enormous Victory spa bath, separate rainfall shower and illuminated fixtures and fittings, it’s like having your very own slice of premium spa luxury in your own home.


Neighbouring the bathroom is the property’s spectacular master bedroom; an enormous, bright and contemporary space with plenty of fitted wardrobes and cupboards. A large dormer window brings in vast levels of natural light, offering far-reaching views over the surrounding fields and coast beyond.

Across the other side of the landing is arguably Les Huguenots’ most breathtaking room, comprising another sizeable space equating to the same size as the master. This second reception room is currently being used as the main living room of the house – and there’s no surprise as to why. A beautiful, contemporary free-standing wood burner sits at one end, adding a touch of nordic charm to this bright and airy loft space. Another dormer window assists in lighting the room, boasting views of Corbiere Lighthouse, Radio Tower, the Railway Walk and neighbouring Channel Islands. With its phenomenal sunset views, it comes without question that future residents of this property will spend a large percentage of their time enjoying this spectacularly unique living space.

Les Huguenots is a property not to be missed for those looking for a spacious family home that they can make their own. With its unique layout, magical gardens and convenient location, it’s the ideal home for a modern family that can also be enjoyed by generations to come. It’s an often overused turn of phrase, but the photographs of this property really don’t do it justice. New to the market only this month, arranging a viewing with Benest Estates comes highly recommended.
