Rue du Lorier, St Pierre du Bois GY7 9JU
This detached chalet bungalow has been well maintained including the recent renovation of the roof creating 2 large bedrooms and a shower room, a lovely family home situated in the rural lanes of St Pierre du Bois.
On the ground floor a separate lounge, 2 further double bedrooms and a bathroom with 4-piece suite accompany a modern and spacious kitchen/living room which gives access and outlook over the rear garden and patio housing a hot tub. Externally there is ample parking and a fore garden which could create further parking if desired, a gravel drive leads down the side of the house to a timber garage providing excellent storage or workshop. The south facing rear garden is part paved and part laid to lawn with a low height timber fence separating from the vegetable patch with a greenhouse and sheds. Situated a short stroll from the local primary school and west coast sandy beaches and sunsets at L’Eree this lovely home has much to offer.
Step back a pace into rural St Peter’s, where the family next door will have owned the same house for generations. Tradition and the beauty of these houses go some way to explain why, and strict planning measures allow limited opportunity for new residents wanting to share this sylvan idyll.
St Peter’s has two coastlines – dramatic high cliffs to the South, with an exceptional stretch of the cliff-path network, and sandy beaches to the West that, with Torteval, host the annual Rocquaine Regatta (Henley, it’s not!). At the far end of L’Eree beach is the tidal island of Lihou and the adjacent nature reserve that form Guernsey’s first RAMSAR site. Also hereabouts are the showground fields for the annual two-day West Show, an agricultural and side-show extravaganza.Read our parish guide
