Description

Les Augerez House is a breath-taking, luxury residence, set in mature grounds. including one of the few east-west valleys on the island, surrounded on three sides by large fields that form part of the estate. Les Augerez House offers one of the most private estates in Jersey - a secluded, beautiful setting and extensive accommodation.

Entry to the estate is down a discreet tree-covered lane. Ample private car parking space is offered. From the moment of arrival, it's clear that it is a welcoming and well-loved home.

Living

The main house frontage is swathed with green ivy creating the sense that the home and its magnificent natural surroundings are as one. There are twenty external windows on the façade alone, and seven sets of double doors, all designed to blur the line between interior and exterior living. Throughout, there is tremendous attention to detail. Here we find extensive paved areas ready to accommodate multiple dining options for 20+ guests. This area also benefits from the estate's hardwired Bose sound-system and wi-fi, as well as being home to a charming herb garden.

Sleeping

An exceptional main bedroom suite overlooks the mature gardens, complete with its own balcony. Along with this there are an additional 6 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There is more than enough space for a growing family or for friends to come and visit.

Pool Area

The rear central courtyard also offers access to the property's 20m x 9.5m heated outdoor pool. Housed in a large raised decking area, the pool features an infinity edge providing stunning views over the property's own valley below. Surrounding the pool there is extensive space for sunbathing and entertaining and this area also benefits from a separate spa pool and gazebo.

Outside

The grounds surrounding Les Augerez House are as magnificent as they are substantial. The valley setting, with a magnificent 36m granite-walled pond at the head of the valley in front of the house, has been intelligently and respectfully tailored for use by the present owners. Now a network of pathways links the grounds' many levels and stunning rural views can be enjoyed from numerous seating areas. These grounds welcome long country and woodland walks, picnics and outdoor games, all within the boundaries of the property.Take the path to the far end of the valley and you'll discover the summerhouse. Sitting atop a large south-facing decking area, extending on stilts out from the valley-side, the summerhouse offers total seclusion. It's a place to entertain the select few with a hardwired sound-system, wi-fi, a separate barbecue area and dazzling tree-top views.Benefiting from their own micro-climate, vast lawned areas and plentiful woodlands, the grounds at Les Augerez House are enchanting. It is no surprise to learn that they have played host to three weddings.

Additional Accommodation

At the rear, the property occupies three sides of a central courtyard. Along the west-facing side of the courtyard is an integral two-bedroomed cottage - this can be used as part of the main house, or a separate unit entirely.Along the north-facing side is a laundry room, a linen room (with slate-lined hardwood shelving), a high-ceilinged additional living room as well as a large multi-use room with newly fitted bi-fold doors opening onto the courtyard. The latter could be used as a pool room, a gym, or a home cinema.The property also enjoys a further separate two-bedroomed cottage which has a private entrance directly from the lane.

Location

This is a beautiful unspoilt rural location yet is within a short distance of village shops and amenities. Great for ramblers and dog walkers so close to the north coast walking paths, and the rolling dunes and sandy beach at St Ouen's Bay where the scenery is ruggedly beautiful and very popular with surfing and sail boarding enthusiasts.La Moye Golf course is fifteen minutes away as is the racecourse at Grosnez and the airport in St Peter. Local schools have an excellent reputation plus there are superb private preparatory, and secondary schools within a short drive.
