Tucked away and far removed from any road noise, approached by a private driveway leading into a cul-de-sac shared with only one other property is this immaculate five bedroom detached house. Completely refurbished by the current owners with no expense spared, it now offers a most stunning family home in which space is certainly not an issue with just under 3000sq ft of living area. The addition of an orangery with vaulted ceiling and bi-fold doors leading from the well-proportioned kitchen is superb for entertaining or just extra space for the children to play in, and there is a separate utility and laundry room.

Rich pickings If we were a billionaire we would have homes all around the world which we could fill with trinkets and collectables such as the lovely ones on this page.

Coup d'état

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

Cushions are the finishing touches which make a room homely. A cushion lover would be able to furnish a double bed with four pillows and seven cushions - excessive, perhaps, but this demonstrates that it’s worth exploiting your current abode’s cushion capacity. They are the perfect addition to any room, making kitchens more comfortable and encouraging cosier cuddling on the sofa during the winter months. Barbara Coupe’s line of hand-embroidered cushions are an ideal choice, with her more traditional designs ranging from charming to eccentric (she does a particularly edgy entomology collection) as well as the popular British Made collection. Firm favourites are the typography cushions displaying slogans such as “GIRLS ONLY IN THIS AREA” and its male counterpart making it easy to stake your claim on the sofa when curling up for a night in.

The White Company's bedding is exquisite. It feels good, really good. Their Hungarian goose down duvets teamed with understated bed linen, a luxurious bedspread and casual cushions makes the most comfortable retreat to cosy up and leave the real world well and truly outside. And if any overly inquisitive partner challenges the cost of the bed linen, simply argue that you spend more time in bed than you do in your car. No argument can rival such logic.

We absolutely love the Chi Chi Boutique in St Aubins which is full to the brim with unique clothes and awesome jewellery, so we were delighted to hear that the Chi Chi empire is now growing. Chi Chi Home & Gifts has just opened around the corner from its sister store making St Aubins the perfect place to get all your Christmas shopping done without having to subject yourself to the madness of town this winter. We managed to track down the lady in the know, Charlie Van De Ruyter, Owner of Chi Chi to find out what would be her top recommendations for unusual Christmas gifts for the person in your life who has everything:

Special Slippers

Beautiful handcrafted slippers by Stasia are an absolute delight to wear. Great for blending your home and lifestyle. Plus they are presented with their own drawstring linen bag so they will make a perfect gift. £35

Lumin Lights

These contemporary lights are affordable and light to carry. With a variety of colours available they are perfect for creating an atmosphere both inside and outside. £35

Unique Socks

Everyone needs a pair of socks for Christmas! These hand made socks from Lisbeth Dahl are simply luxurious. They look fab pulled up with a pair of boots, and really do keep the chill out. £34

Elegant Kimono

I love this silk Kimono with its intricate pattern. This will be going on my Christmas wish list! (hint hint) £43

Pretty Lantern

An Eastern style lantern really gives the home a warm Christmassy feel. Also great for summer nights in the garden; not just a one hit wonder. £35

Frog in Lotus

A golden delightful frog is a winner for Yoga enthusiasts. £19.50

incredible secluded suntrap during the summer. Every room has bi-fold doors that open out onto the courtyard, so in warmer weather it creates a huge open-plan indoor/outdoor living space where you can stroll easily from sofa to sun-lounger, and have supper alfresco every evening under the stars.

Turn into the driveway at Le Pavillon du Bourg, and you’d hardly know the house was there at all. A long granite wall is all you can see of the property, but walk through the modern front door, and it all opens up in front of you. Centered around a decked courtyard, this supermodern house is 2,400 square feet of immaculate, contemporary style – all arranged for easy living and just a minute’s walk away from the beach. Having everything on one level makes for a seamless flow through the house, and all the rooms are linked by the central courtyard. The property’s cleverly designed so that the public area of the house – the long open plan living and dining room forms the centre of a u-shape, with the bedrooms stretching off at either end. The stunning centerpiece of the house though is definitely the red cedar-decked ‘outdoor room’. Sheltered by the surrounding walls on all sides, it’s an

And if you’re looking for modern technology, this home has is in spades. Digicode entry, jacuzzi bath, HD Apple TVs and a smart lighting system that’s remote controlled - turn into the drive and have the lights turned on, blinds closed and your favourite music playing – all at the touch of a button. In another clever touch, motion sensitive lighting in the bathrooms means you never need to flick a switch, and the hallways are fitted with floor-level LED lighting that switches on automatically as darkness falls, so no stumbling around in the dark if you get up in the night. The attention to detail in this property has really paid off. Take the Bauformat kitchen for example. Top quality Siemens appliances – including three ovens, a built in wine cooler, and a boiling / ice cold water tap make it an extremely functional kitchen for any level of entertaining, but the clean, contemporary lines of the Silestone and

ucked away in the heart of St Clement countryside, you’d hardly know Le Pavillon du Bourg existed from the outside. If you’re looking for a luxury hideaway with the latest technology, where you can get away from it all in style, we think we’ve found your perfect pad.

Zodiac worktops, cleverly designed kitchen layout and lighting make it stunning to look at as well. It’s the same story in the bathrooms, which are also from Bauformat. Each of the bedrooms has its own ensuite bathroom, all with their own individual sleek finishes and clever touches. The master bathroom even has a top of the range jacuzzi bath with a built in flat screen tv for the ultimate in bathtime lounging. The master bedroom is right at the end of the ‘west wing’ of the house, and overlooks the courtyard and the property’s low upkeep garden. It’s a spacious room, with its own separate large walk in wardrobe, where handbuilt shoe cupboards are just waiting to show off a collection of Jimmy Choos. Currently two of the bedrooms are used as a home office and a gym – an easy example of maximizing the flexibility of this property’s layout, especially as each has its own ensuite bathroom. The property really comes to life at night, with stylish lighting systems inside and out. Evening outdoor entertaining is easy with the terrace just a couple of steps away from the kitchen, and when the air starts getting cooler, step inside and warm up near the fireplace with its modern double fire. There’s even space outside to put a hot tub. With plenty of parking, a double garage and outdoor store area just off the driveway, this is a deceptively spacious four-bedroomed house that takes advantage of its secluded setting to create a wonderfully private indoor/outdoor home. Even when the bi-fold doors aren’t thrown open to the courtyard, skylights and picture windows let the light in and create easy visual links to the other areas of the house. It’s the sort of home that’s a cosy bolthole in the winter and a secluded suntrap in the summer, when the alfresco terrace turns into the heart of the home. Whether you’re looking for a party house, a romantic hideaway or simply a safe, easy upkeep environment for a young family, we think you’ll fall in love with our property of the month.

How To Be Top As we enter a New Year, Gill Hunt of The Jersey Estate Agents’ Association takes a look at what may lie ahead for the property market. Although mature estate agents are apt to say that they have seen it all before, this time it is different. No one has seen this market under this set of national and international financial conditions before. But what is rather refreshing is that the uncertainty now cuts down buying on speculation and more about the real and age-old essentials. Le Corbusier, the pioneering architect, stated that, “The requirements for a house should be to provide a shelter against heat, cold, rain, thieves and the inquisitive”. He didn’t add that a house should also provide its owner with an investment return of seven per cent year-on-year.

For the first time since the 1960s property investment can take more of a back seat in the house buying mindset and, instead, fundamental life requirements can come back to the fore. Of course with other financial instruments providing so little in the way of return, property is a natural way in which to invest. But with little or no indication about if or when the market, will return in strength, we are left with simpler decisions and choices - does a property suit our requirements in size, location, style and price?

We quickly learn to expect that there is an investment opportunity to be gained from property purchase in a rising market. But we are rather slow to appreciate the reverse is likely in a poor market and/or in particularly adverse economic circumstances as we have now.

Maillard’s Estates

Jersey’s independent property magazine

2011 was a hard year in property and this year may not be much better. We may have new American, Russian and French presidents, more ructions in Europe and the Middle East, and greater privations at home before we see improvement. But still there is a reassuring level of market activity that has more to do with need than discretion. This is the market we have and this is the market we have to deal with – and deal with it we will. Real buyers and sellers should not be deterred. Indeed they should be encouraged as the more life there is in the property market the more life there is in the economy. But those still insisting on the sort of financial profit they may have achieved several years ago should perhaps think again and get real. It will be the enlightened who get to the top of the property class in 2012, not those in denial.
