Route des Laurens, Torteval GY8 0RA
Spacious detached three bedroom bungalow situated in the rural parish of Torteval with sea views over Les Tielles.
The accommodation is smartly presented throughout, externally there is good parking with a large garden to the rear housing a block built store and a large workshop with vehicular access. A spacious and low maintenance home in a tranquil location with potential to extend, subject to the usual planning permissions.
Torteval is in two parts, although only 100 feet apart at Rue de L’Aitte. It includes Pleinmont Point, a favourite walk beginning at the quaint harbour of Portelet. The higher ground is Guernsey’s equivalent to Land’s End and the start, or end, of the spectacular south-coast network of cliff paths.
The sandy stretch of Rocquaine Bay and its regatta shared with St Peter’s are mentioned above, but Torteval’s great attraction is the Scarecrow Festival, annually drawing in 8,000 people over two days, strolling through the patchwork of scenic lanes near the parish church.
There is space aplenty throughout the parish, due to the relatively low ratio of houses, and demand is high. Some buyers say it’s too far out, which, for others, is what makes Torteval special.Read our parish guide
