A distinctive period house, built by one of Guernsey’s most distinguished families during the 18th century in the manner of a Breton Chateau.
The property is close to some of the Island’s premier west coast beaches and is only 600 meters from the village shops and sandy bay at Cobo which offers excellent opportunities for windsurfing, swimming and sailing.
Extensively modernised and refurbished, Carteret Manor is notable for its light and generously proportioned rooms enjoying a south facing rear aspect overlooking secluded walled gardens which include a swimming pool and tennis court.
A fabulous family home with guest annexe.
Guernsey’s largest parish geographically and family-friendly at heart, with safe sandy beaches and leafy Saumarez Park, home to summer festivals, the National Trust of Guernsey’s Folk Museum and children’s adventure playground.
The near-legendary fish and chips on the sea wall watching stunning sunsets is as good as it sounds, shared by more formal west-coast dining, if preferred.
There are wide tracks of green-belt land, especially at Talbot Valley and nearby Fauxquets Valley, and an eclectic mix of housing styles and densities. This includes clusters of fine old farmhouses, notably in the hamlet of Kings Mills, although modern architecture is increasingly popular, especially when replacing 20th century buildings. The proposed redevelopment of La Grande Mare Golf Club to international status is affirmation of Castel’s inherent appeal.Read our parish guide
