Carteret Manor is situated just a stone's throw from Guernsey's popular West Coast, including Cobo Bay and Grandes Rocques beach. The property has almost immediate access to the many amenities of the area, including a supermarket, local butchery, the Cobo Bay Hotel and several restaurants for fine dining whilst overlooking the bay.
The school catchment area for the property is La Mare de Carteret Primary and High School.
A regular bus route is available either from the coast road or Rue du Galaad.
Situated just a stone's throw from one of Guernsey's finest West Coast beaches, this historic and characterful property was built by the fourth Baron de Saumarez in the style of a Breton Chateaux in the early 18th Century. It has a commanding presence in the area and a striking architectural style that features two towers and high pitched gables in an attractive mix of local granite and smooth white painted render to give a great sense of curb appeal.
The ground floor of the original manor house is ideally set out for entertaining with typically well-proportioned reception rooms leading towards a more recent extension on the South elevation that overlooks the garden and provides informal family space. The accommodation features up to five bedrooms and five bathrooms, while a guest cottage offers semi-independent living or a potential income stream.
Externally the gardens and grounds are predominantly South and West facing with high levels of privacy both by the swimming pool or on the all-weather tennis court.
Garaging, outbuildings and an abundance of parking complete this excellent seaside home which has particular potential for those wanting to combine an outdoor lifestyle with a home rich in charm and period detail.
Travelling North along Cobo Coast road, take a right on to Route de la Mare de Carteret. The property is the tenth along on the right hand side before the filter. Perry's Guide Map Reference: Page 8 B3.
