A detached cavity built bungalow which sits in the heart of St Martin’s Village with scope to convert the roof space and develop the garage.
A lovely spacious home, superbly situated with easy & speedy access to all St Martin’s amenities, and only a 10 minute cycle ride through pretty country lanes, to St Peter Port. With the highly regarded & successful Parish Primary School just a short walk up School
Lane, which Coniston has gated access onto, beyond which lie the gorgeous country hinterland of rural St Martin’s, this is a must see property for everyone, and especially families or those with grandchildren of a certain age.
Planning permission has been granted for 2 extensions to the property. The first is for the main house, to extend into the existing roof space to create 3 bedrooms, one with ensuite, a bathroom and a large balcony terrace area, along with separate generous kitchen, utility and living areas to complement an already spacious ground floor. The second is for the garage complex to provide a dower unit and extensive first floor storage with large windows to provide a light and accessible building.
Jerbourg Point marks St Martin’s and Guernsey’s south-east corner with panoramic views across to neighbouring islands. Fermain Bay was a favourite of Victor Hugo’s, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir captured Moulin Huet in fifteen of his paintings.
Cliff paths and green lanes provide excellent walks and Sausmarez Manor is a resplendent Queen Anne house, with regular events in its grounds. There are good family amenities, excellent hotels, restaurants and pubs, plus a M&S food hall for home dining. This is a sought-after location with a vibrant parish centre and housing market to match.
At the gateway to St Martin’s parish church stands La Gran’mère du Chimquière (the grandmother of the churchyard), where present-day brides often adorn the pagan statue-menhir (c.2500BC) with a floral headdress.Read our parish guide
