Rue des Simons, Torteval, GY8 0LW
Situated in the picturesque parish of Torteval, La Grande Maison is a charming semi detached property with a great deal of potential.
Included in the excellent sized rooms and gorgeous Guernsey granite throughout, 3 garages and ample parking compliment the space that the rural plot provides. The substantial country home benefits from stunning gardens surrounded by agricultural fields, which adds to the overall farmhouse feel to the property.
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
