This detached three bedroom bungalow is situated in a quiet St Peter’s lane adjacent to the Colin Best Nature Reserve.
The property sits on a generous plot of almost 1½ vergees and benefits from a large garden, plenty of parking and a new timber frame double garage with store room or home office space above. As it stands, Le Courtil d’Aval requires full renovation throughout, however the current vendors do have passed plans as of September 2022 to create a stunning family home. A diverse property suitable for those looking to either renovate what is currently on site, or, create a more substantial property in a highly desirable area.
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
