A traditional farmhouse set in a convenient and popular location close to Bordeaux Harbour.
This listed, semi-detached home offers excellent space for a growing family with three reception rooms, kitchen, 5 bedrooms, the principal bedroom with ensuite dressing room and bathroom, a family bathroom, excellent storage areas, workshop and double garage. Externally the property enjoys a large and private lawned garden along with ample parking. Situated close to coastal walks at Bordeaux and Beaucette this substantial home is 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
