This stylish detached property has been renovated and extended by the current owner with a renowned local architect 12 years ago, the result is a fabulous fusion of fisherman’s cottage and modern living space with vaulted ceilings and double height windows.
Situated close to L’Ancresse Common, sandy beaches and fabulous coastal path walks this lovely home requires internal viewing to be fully appreciated.
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
