Cooper Brouard are delighted to offer Mentone House and Mentone Cottage to the market.
Conveniently situated nearby to the L’Islet amenities and surrounding beaches and walks of the area, this substantial home – which needs complete renovation throughout – offers someone the opportunity to create a super property with two bedroom cottage attached. The main listed building comprises three floors with a large extension to one side – please note, this extension needs completely recreating due to the extensive damage throughout this section of the property and fire damage in other areas. Suitable for cash buyers only.
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
