Green Fingers? I’ve always been a little shy of gardening. Alan Titchmarsh and Charlie Dimmock put me off for life. I still appreciate a good garden though. I may not be able to differentiate between different plants but the right ones, in the right configuration, always get my vote. It’s just the work to make them that way that concerns me. That having been said, I’m in the minority. I have plenty of friends for whom the garden is their life. Whether nurturing strawberries, growning tomatoes, mowing the lawn into nice stripey patterns or feeding the birds, it’s all good. Personally I’d go the big lawn, deck, jacuzzi combo. Throw in a barbeque and maybe a pool. But each to their own. This week’s Places featured a selection of homes with ample gardens, however you choose to use them. We also look at a fantasticrenovation, some wild interiors pieces and an easy guide to commercial leases. Handy reading for us small business types....

Here in Jersey where space is at a premium, it’s rare to find a property surrounded by its own land, with sweeping views yet only a few minutes away from town. It’s even more unusual to discover the property is one of the oldest buildings on the island, with a fascinating history of its own.

“It’s believed to be the original building of the area, and dates back to the 15th century” says the owner Richard Ledo. “Eventually, in the 1600s there was a farmhouse built, and the people occupying the farm lived in that rather than the cottage. We believe that this building became the brewhouse, where people from the area would gather to bring their hops and barley to brew up. I suppose it was a bit like an early forerunner of the local pub!” “When I bought the property, the cottage was completely derelict. It was just four walls, with a tree growing out of the middle of it. I worked with architects Anthony Gibb to restore it, being sympathetic to the original design and using original materials, but also with the aim of

returning it to a home that would have a contemporary appeal”. After a long period of renovation, the cottage is now beautifully finished, with soft interior colours echoing the warm tones of the granite features, and luxury fittings blending with original historic detailing. “The old part of the cottage still retains its historic atmosphere. We’ve restored it sympathetically, using traditional materials in order to allow the building to function. The walls in the old section are all lime plastered and distemper painted to keep the integrity of the cottage. The fireplace and chimney was rebuilt completely and features a green oak lintel in exactly the same design and size as the original would have been. That’s how we’ve approached all the oak work, it’s been designed to be as close as possible to

the way it was originally. The only difference is that we’ve used green oak, so it’s a new material, but still the same material. That’s very important to me.” The old part of the building is home to the main living area which has a cosy feel with a log burning stove and stairs up to the galleried main bedroom in the roof A-frame with exposed oak ceiling beams joined with wooden pegs. Next to the reception room is the strikingly modern kitchen, fully equipped with up to the minute Siemens appliances. “There’s a sense of transition as you move through the building into the contemporary part. We used large limestone flags in the old section to give it an aged look, but as you move through the hall, the limestone floor becomes polished and honed,


It was just four walls, with a tree growing out of the middle of it

highlighting the ultra modern, clean lines of the contemporary section.” Outside the kitchen is a large and private southfacing decked area. “It’s very unusual to find such a character property with this much land, and such a private location” says agent Howard Temple-Redshaw from Maillard’s Estates. “It would make a perfect little home for anyone seeking ‘the good life’”.

roof a very authentic weathered feel! We chose zinc on the roof of the extension so it will mellow down to a lead colour, and managed to find galvanized guttering that will fade over time to a dull steel. The exterior of the cottage should blend with the Jersey landscape around it, and almost fade into the background, leaving the property’s new owners to bring their own perspective to it”.

A tremendous amount of care and attention to detail has gone into ensuring the cottage was properly restored. “Paying attention to the details was important for this property, so we sourced a lot of materials locally. We reinstated the large granite slabs that would have formed the original hearth, and used reclaimed pantiles from a building in town that came to us covered in moss, and gave the

The cottage is surrounded by around 1.5 vergees of land that would be easy to adapt to many different uses. A paddock perhaps, or extensive gardens. Richard has his own vision for the property. “I’d love to turn it into a meadow and then just let it go wild and turn into a natural habitat. It’s such an unusual location, you can’t hear any traffic yet you’re not far from town.” You certainly get a feeling that the walls

have a story to tell. And after centuries of ale-brewing gossip while the building was possibly the local brewhouse, it’s not surprising the cottage has a unique charm. Yet with its contemporary interior, the cottage functions perfectly as a modern home that still blends in beautifully with its natural surroundings. 7 Le Pigneaux Farm 3 bedrooms Minstrel gallery Private decked area Fully-equipped high spec kitchen Modern bathroom / wetroom 1.5 vergees / Parking for up to 8 cars

Agents... If you’re marketing property your media choice is tough. Is the media relevant to your market? Is it targeted? Is the other content coherent with the property sector? is it cost effective? Like they used to say at the end of Record Breakers; ‘dedication, that’s the key.’ We’re 100% property. No discount vouchers, no nightclub photos. People that pick up Places are looking for property. After all, that’s who we’re after. We don’t want to tell you how to run your business or sell you software. We’re simply dedicated to producing the most focused media option for estate agencies in Jersey. If you’d like a free Places website or an off the shelf UK CRM product just let us know. There are a myriad of choices. They’re not expensive. We can offer you one free as part of your Places package if you feel the need... We play well with others too; we’ll feed data to any other site you fancy.

Get involved today.

Give us a call on 811100 and we’ll listen to you.

Gill Hunt President of the Jersey Estate Agents’ Association offers some simple advice on property valuation Everyone has an opinion of what his or her house is worth and rightly so. But have you ever wondered how an experienced agent will value your home? Just because a similar property transacted at a certain price, it does not necessarily follow that yours will too. Over the next few articles, we will discuss the process, which we go through to ascertain the price of a property. Firstly, we will consider the Geographical Factors. Where a property is located will greatly influence its value. We have all heard the term that value arises from three things: location, location, location. If you have the right property in the right location, you will have a valuable asset. A property with a sea view will always fetch a higher price than the one overlooking a car park, obviously. However this is not only about location it is about accessibility. The property might be very desirable but is it set at the end of a really long unmade road that no one knows who owns? A buyer might love the house but decide to simply look for another property because it will be ‘hassle’ accessing their home each day. Easy access to schools, work or the beach will be a bonus factor, for most. These are just a few points that need to be taken into consideration. Of course there are many more. Next issue we will discuss some more factors that will effect the value of your home. For more information, please feel free to contact me at g.hunt@choicejersey.com.
