Rue de la Maraive, Vale GY3 5BE
This charming, farmhouse is located in a lovely quiet lane between L’Ancresse Common and Beaucette Marina.
The accommodation comprises well-proportioned reception rooms with a rural aspect, great character, and good head height, along with 3 bedrooms, one of which enjoys distant sea views, and a family bathroom. A large attic offers ample storage but could be converted to create further accommodation, subject to the relevant permissions. Externally, there is ample parking to the rear, a workshop, and an enclosed paved area. Viewing is highly recommended by Cooper Brouard.
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
