Located with direct access to the south coast cliffs and its walks, La Rocque is also ideally situated close to the conveniences of St Martins Village with its shops and businesses. A short walk way is the Hotel Jerbourg, ideal for a dinner or afternoon tea.
Situated in one of the most desirable areas of St Martin’s, moments from the East and South coast cliff paths, La Rocque enjoys spectacular views over the east coast, islands and French coast beyond. It is truly one of Guernsey’s most impressive contemporary homes.
Spacious accommodation, beautifully presented and designed in a crescent, maximises the light and stunning outlook from every room. Each has floor to ceiling windows and doors leading on to terraces or directly to the landscaped gardens and pool. This magnificent home in excess of 6,500 sq ft has been built to an extremely high specification throughout.
The initial approach to La Roque with its warm curved granite walls and granite set paving provides a pleasantly understated perspective concealing the extent of the property and land from the adjacent bridle path. The external appearance is a striking contrast to the architectural masterpiece that is immediately apparent upon entering, surpassed only by the views seen in every direction. No expense has been spared in creating this exclusive and luxurious home.
The layout of the accommodation flows across three floors each accessed by a remarkable glass and steel spiral staircase. The main living space on the entrance floor consists of an impressive sitting room to the north, with the large family kitchen to the south, separated by the dining hall. Internal walls and doors of glass create a variety of settings perfect for entertaining. A sonos system covers this floor to provide music or other streaming services.
The dining hall, a sumptuous space, currently used for formal entertaining, has seating for 14 beneath dramatic globe crystal chandeliers.
The sitting room is ideal for every season with sofas and chairs positioned to enjoy the views as well as a log burning stove for cosy winter evenings.
The wonderful kitchen has an adjoining walk-in pantry, premium brand integral units, a dining table for informal family meals and glazed doors leading to the large roof terrace, superb for al fresco dining.
This floor also has a cloakroom, shower room and well proportioned study.
The stunning ornate steel and glass staircase leads to the middle floor. Five en suite bedrooms each open on to the extensive paved area surrounding the swimming pool, jacuzzi and leading to the gardens beyond.
The generous principal suite has a well appointed walk-in dressing room as well as a fabulous bathroom also enjoying the amazing views.
Each of the other en-suite bedrooms has its own style, and a second bathroom, attached to the central bedroom, can provide facilities for the adjacent pool.
The fully equipped laundry and large linen cupboard provide extensive storage and is conveniently situated on this level. One of the real surprises is the lower ground floor, again accessed from the beautiful spiral staircase. A property of this nature deserves certain luxuries and in this case the cinema room and wine cellar are a welcome addition to an already well rounded house. This level is also home to a box room, invaluable for storage, a toilet and shower room, and the main plant room for the house where all the equipment is located to run the solar power and water, air source heat pumps, ventilation and underfloor heating systems.
Travelling along Jerbourg Road from St Martins, take the last lane on your left before the Monument and continue to the end of the lane. Be aware, it is a dead end, and there's no ability to turn around at the end.
