The nearby walk from Corbière Lighthouse to Portelet Bay is one of the most iconic and picturesque walks on the island, taking in stunning costal views as well as the ups and downs of the high cliffs.
This short walk is packed with sights to absorb. St. Brelade's Bay, recently voted third best in Britain, marks the halfway point. Containing a huge choice of places to relax as well as one of the Island's richest and most diverse nature reserves, Ouaisne Common.
Old Station House has one of the finest sea views in the Channel Islands
Originally the granite built station house was the last stop on the railway line from St Helier to Corbiere. The Victorian Station house has been sympathetically modernised & partly encased by a curved double height glass atrium which provides stunning views of the coastline, including Corbiere Lighthouse & St Ouen's Bay.
The property is upside down to make the most of the views. Downstairs there are 4 spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. In addition the master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe area. There is also a fully fitted utility room & downstairs cloakroom. The light & airy atrium incorporates a full length walnut bookcase with library ladder.
Upstairs is accessed via an open tread wood, metal & glass staircase, leading to a custom built kitchen from Bulthaup in Germany. There is a spacious dining area & a magnificent lounge with 280 degree views of the coastline. Extensive balcony area is ideal for entertaining whilst watching the sunset.
The property has underfloor heating & an integrated Sonos system which controls lighting, sound & the drive gate. The blinds in the atrium are electric & the blinds in the lounge are designed to reduce heat penetration.
Outside to the rear the original platform area is paved & the front is laid to lawn with railway sleeper raised flower beds. Planning permission for a 3 car garage expired last year but would be easy to renew as the plans are readily available. The footings & base for the garage are where cars are presently parked.
Old Station House is now one of the finest contemporary residences in the Channel Islands and a viewing is essential to appreciate just how stunning the vistas are from this unique property.
