Route de Farras, Forest, GY8 0EA
A striking detached Victorian Villa offering 5 well proportioned bedrooms all of which have en suite facilities and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room at the rear of the property in addition to a formal dining room and a wonderfully bright drawing room with imposing marble fireplace.
The property sits well back from the road and is approached over an in/out tarmacadam drive. At the rear of the property the enclosed south facing gardens are mainly laid to lawn with an area of decking located behind the kitchen and a fire pit. Oak Lodge is ready to move in and enjoy and will prove an excellent family home being well positioned for the popular Forest Primary School, nearby shops and is only a short drive from some of our most picturesque bays and coastal walks.
Formerly known as Trinity, Forest takes its name from its once densely-wooded habitat. The parish is the highest in the island and includes dramatic parts of Guernsey’s south-coast network of cliff paths, best accessed from Le Gouffre. There is a honeycomb of hedge-lined lanes and an enchanting valley down to Petit Bôt Bay, with the charming hamlet of Le Variouf above.
The German Occupation Museum near the parish church is as much for locals as it is visitors, and the family-owned Forest Stores is delightfully retrospective, yet a must for the island’s best family kitchens. The community spirited and award-winning Forest Floral Group is tireless in enhancing the parish they see as a gateway to the island, in the form of Guernsey’s modern airport.Read our parish guide
