Clos De Tours is situated in a commanding coastal location above St Aubin’s Bay and set within approximately 2½ verges (1 acre) of land.
The extremely impressive Grade 3 listed home was designed by the late Roy Blampied and built for Lord Coutanche in 1933.
With many interesting and unique features, from the circular headed granite front door that leads into an impressive entrance hall with imposing open staircase and beautiful original panelled wall coverings, to the large spacious rooms which benefit from a flood of light with their south facing aspect looking out onto the manicured gardens. The sitting room is of grand proportions and leads into a small orangery which open into the gardens and pathways. The beautiful panelled dining room with its listed feature eighteenth century fireplace is also a wonderfully elegant room from which to entertain.
On the first floor there is a generous master suite with ensuite bathroom and dressing room, two further double bedrooms, two smaller rooms plus an additional two bathrooms.
The property provides scope to extend (subject to the usual planning consent) up into the 60ft attic if more bedroom space was required. There is also a large cellar on the ground floor that provides an opportunity to convert into a fabulous wine cellar.
Approached via a long sweeping driveway through the extensive grounds this property is extremely private with beautiful woodland paths, an orchard and manicured gardens.
The property further benefits from ample parking along with a detached double garage block and substantial workshop.
On the market for the first time since it was built by Lord Coutanche in 1933, Jersey's wartime Bailiff, Clos De Tours would now benefit from some modernisation to bring this wonderful family home up to modern standards for the next generation to enjoy.
The property is approximately only a five minute walk to the picturesque St Aubin's Bay and harbour with a plethora of restaurants and bars as well as shops and the parish church.
The airport is also approximately five minutes by car and all the shopping facilities at St Brelade’ s just a short drive away.
