La Verte Rue, St Martin's, GY4 6TQ
Detached solid block 1960’s bungalow situated in the quiet lanes of St Martin’s.
The property offers well-proportioned accommodation with a large kitchen/dining room ideal for family life along with a lounge and conservatory which overlooks the garden. There are three bedrooms serviced by a shower room with a separate wc. Externally there is parking for three cars to the front and a pedestrian gate opens on to the low maintenance and enclosed garden laid to gravel and paving. The property requires upgrading throughout but has the potential to create a lovely family home in a sought after location.
Jerbourg Point marks St Martin’s and Guernsey’s south-east corner with panoramic views across to neighbouring islands. Fermain Bay was a favourite of Victor Hugo’s, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir captured Moulin Huet in fifteen of his paintings.
Cliff paths and green lanes provide excellent walks and Sausmarez Manor is a resplendent Queen Anne house, with regular events in its grounds. There are good family amenities, excellent hotels, restaurants and pubs, plus a M&S food hall for home dining. This is a sought-after location with a vibrant parish centre and housing market to match.
At the gateway to St Martin’s parish church stands La Gran’mère du Chimquière (the grandmother of the churchyard), where present-day brides often adorn the pagan statue-menhir (c.2500BC) with a floral headdress.Read our parish guide
