An elegant and attractive period house situated at the head of Fermain Valley with open views across private mature gardens to the coast beyond.
Highfield provides bright, spacious accommodation tastefully and neutrally decorated throughout with high quality finishes and presented in pristine condition. An adjoining orangery provides an impressive additional reception room well suited to family living or entertaining while on the lower ground floor the property has been extended to provide a cinema and garden room. Highfield is set well back from the road and approached over an imposing circular driveway. Cliff path walks are on the doorstep and St Martin’s Village and Town are a very short drive away.
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
