Bordel Lane, Vale GY3 5BD
Smartly presented throughout and tastefully decorated this spacious family home is situated in the quiet lanes close to L’Ancresse and Bordeaux.
The property offers well proportioned accommodation on the ground floor leading out to a west facing composite decked area and lawned garden beyond all enclosed by timber fencing. On the first floor three double bedrooms are serviced by an ensuite shower room and family bathroom which were both fitted just last year. A well maintained home worthy of closer inspection.
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
