  • Sold by Cooper Brouard

An unusual ground floor flat forming part of a converted granite cottage.

The property requires modernising and upgrading throughout and offers large rooms with good storage. Behind the flat there is a double garage which has been part converted to create a sun room with double glazed doors opening on to the lawned garden. With the appropriate planning permission there is scope to fully convert the garage to residential accommodation or alternatively a low maintenance home with a fantastic work shop with power and water already in place. With ample parking provided on gravel driveway viewing is recommended to appreciate all that is on offer.

  • Vale

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.
