Forming part of a classic late-Georgian row in a particularly sought after location L’Hyvreuse House is an exceptional property in many ways.
The period charm is immediate from the quintessential front door and continues throughout its generous range of accommodation. The south-facing garden is both surprising and a delight with sheltered sitting areas and carefully landscaped features leading in typical mews style to a secure double garage, a rare find for this style of property. Cambridge Park provides a welcome leafy aspect and to the rear are roof-top views towards the pretty town harbour and neighbouring islands beyond. Private and state schools are a short walk away as well as St Peter Port’s attractive centre with vibrant restaurants and shops. Viewing truly is essential to fully embrace this desirable property.
The picturesque harbour town combines pedestrian shopping and alfresco bars and restaurants. There are fine hotels, St James Concert Hall, Candie Gardens and two exceptional colleges in sight of each other, while Victor Hugo’s Hauteville House is in the older French quarter.
Its thriving square-mile in the business sector includes leading names in finance, insurance and law and Admiral Park is a modern, dockland-style redevelopment of apartments, offices and one of two Waitrose mega-stores in the parish.
St Peter Port still has open green spaces inland and a small park with a popular leisure centre. Old and new houses sit comfortably together but it is the larger Georgian townhouses, spectacular new-builds on high ground, brewery conversions and the Fort George private estate that catch the eye.Read our parish guide
