Rue des Falles, St Pierre du Bois GY7 9EB
A charming detached Guernsey cottage situate in the peaceful lanes of St Pierre du Bois.
The property offers character features throughout, with a beautiful granite fireplace being the focal point of the lounge. Also on the ground floor is a charming kitchen/diner, large study/bedroom 4, utility room and useful boot room. On the first floor the master bedroom is complimented by an ensuite shower room with two further double bedrooms, a nursery and a family bathroom. Externally there is an attached barn and store offering scope to extend the accommodation (subject to the relevant permissions), two wooden stables and tack room, a wooden shed currently utilised as a dog grooming parlour, a large glasshouse and a detached garage. With ample parking and lovely gardens viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all that is on 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
