Hermes House was built in 1906. It was designed originally as Guernseys telephone exchange - in myth, Hermes functions as the emissary and messenger of the gods and as the technology progressed, and our telecoms required more space, the exchange moved on leaving behind a beautifully unusual space laced throughout with original Edwardian elements. The Edwardian style adapted traditional styles for a modern era, and Hermes House boasts many elements including noticeably high ceilings throughout and punctuations of craftsmanship including original parquet flooring and banisters. The original building was extended in the 1960s, a space which is now home to a fabulous, double height kitchen and dining room. The accommodation comfortably offers 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms, whilst the highly flexible accommodation could easily be split into two or more units if required. With parking for 5 cars to the rear and within close walk of Sausmarez Park, there is plenty on offer to admire and enjoy.
