La Rocque Es Rousse, Vale, GY3 5BU
A quaint cottage situated in a sought after location alongside L’Ancresse Common.
The property has recently undergone some upgrading including the installation of a new kitchen and bath/shower room suites would benefit from finishing and continued modernising. Externally there are enclosed south facing gardens and the potential to create parking. A delightful detached home with great scope.
The ancient names of Le Clos du Valle and Vale Vingtaine de l’Epine remain on record but they are administered as one and jointly called Vale.
The parish offers wide sandy beaches and surfing at Portinfer, two fishing harbours at Grande Harve, a marina at Beaucette and horseshoe harbour at Bordeaux. There is a Royal 18-hole links course within extensive common land that also has a competition-standard rifle range.
Vale and its former abbey found favour with William the Conqueror and his father before him, whose storm-torn ship found safety at L’Ancresse (the anchorage). Wealth and industry have long since been Vale’s bywords, displayed in numerous 17th- and 18th-century farmhouses, pretty cottages and vast Victorian villas in an inland maze of lanes.Read our parish guide
