Surrounded by stunning sea and coastal views, this unique property, which sits just a short hop from the picturesque Green Island beach, has been beautifully designed and finished throughout.
The aptly named Beach House, with its neutral colour scheme and open-plan configuration, boasts oodles of potential. Spanning a good 4699 sq. ft. it’s anything but short of space. In fact, with it’s extensive basement (currently used as an indoor football pitch, fitness area and spacious workshop) there’s plenty of provision for storage of all requirements. Those looking to put their own stamp on this property could easily fashion this space into a state-of-the-art home gym, a contemporary studio or home cinema.
The locality is not only renowned for its beautiful, south facing sandy beach (of which many locals have dubbed their favourite) but also, its ideal position – whereby uninterrupted sea views are accessible from each of the sun-drenched balconies, the terraces and the garden with its charming beach hut. It’s also in close proximity to the number 1 bus route, ample amenities, and sits just a 15-minute drive from a handful of the local schools.
The ground floor, with its impressive entrance hall, is home to an integral flat, comprising a lounge diner, fitted kitchen, and one en-suite bedroom – a perfect place in which to entertain kid’s sleepovers, multi-generational living quarters or a fully functional office space – this self-contained accommodation is an asset to homeowners looking for an investment that leaves plenty to the imagination. Also on the ground floor, you’ll find a downstairs restroom complete with shelves fashioned from driftwood found on the local beach – a further nod to the ocean.
Every family home deserves a splendid kitchen; The Beach House has just that. With its charming country style, Cotswold Stone flooring and glass doors leading out onto the patio, it boasts oodles of personality – the perfect place to indulge in home cooked meals, conversation over coffee and alfresco dining. Of course, if you’re less of a culinary connoisseur, you can always walk the few steps to the Green Island Restaurant – a popular beachside eatery specialising in delicious, freshly cooked local seafood.
On the first floor, you’re met by a generously proportioned open plan living and dining area, with doors leading out onto a raised sun terrace. From entertaining family and friends, to indulging in summer drinks on the balcony, this is a great spot to spectate a little of Jersey’s ever-changing vista, as well the many planes ducking and diving at the Jersey Air Show.
Come winter, snuggle up by the double-sided stove, which has been fitted into the central chimneystack, so that each verge of the hearth is visible. You’ll also find the study on this floor, which could easily be transformed into a fifth bedroom if required.
The bedrooms on the upper level all feature their own private balconies along with contemporary, future-proof, Velux roof windows, which look out onto the beach and beyond. Even on a dull day, there’s little need for artificial light.
With its sweeping interiors and doors of glass, this serene residence visually connects to its exterior surroundings. Both the sea views and tropical-style gardens, featuring under lit palms (inspired by many trips to Dubai) can be viewed from almost every room in the household, whilst the open plan interior creates a sense of spaciousness and clarity, further enhanced by the rich quality of natural light.
Aside from the spacious accommodation, The Beach House is the only house in Jersey to offer direct vehicle access from a cobbled slipway, which makes it the perfect investment for seafaring individuals who desire continuous access to the open water.
What was once an old fishing cottage is now a modern, beachside retreat – perfectly suited to active families looking for a contemporary space to call their own. Brimming with potential, this property provides all the ingredients for family leisure.
