For our featured selection this week we take a look at properties that are large enough to contain a big brood. With that extra space does come an extra price tag, but we’ve managed to find a lovely six bedroom for well under a million. Why not take a look on page 6. We’ve come across a fantastic removals company that does it all ; from trips to Ikea to moving your reptiles, they can cater for every aspect of moving things to and from the mainland. Read more on page 17. Also this week we have an article on Designed Interiors Ltd and what they have been up to over the last year or so. Director Jessica Lightbody and her design team have established themselves as one of Jersey’s most dynamic and refreshing interior design practices.

Interiors News

Designed Interiors Ltd Director Jessica Lightbody and her design team have established themselves as one of Jersey’s most dynamic and refreshing interior design practices. Collectively the team have 20 years experience in interior architecture, design & decor. With an internationally recognised qualification from the world-renowned KLC School of Design, Chelsea Harbour, London, an Honours degree in Interior Architecture & Design and a Masters Degree in Interior Design, their qualifications and experience are second to none. Recognising that many businesses in the Channel Islands outsourced to the mainland for professional design services, Jessica established a local design practice to meet the needs of local residence and businesses. A decision was taken early on to separate commercial and residential under the names Hospitality Interiors and Designed Interiors respectively. The team’s conceptual design process is based on calculated factors with a focused understanding of ergonomics, spatial theory, behavioural psychology, human scale and experiences inherent in public and private spaces. This facilitates the development of a multi-sensory approach to interior spaces with a sense of belonging and integration. Responding to an increased call for social and environmental responsibility in design the company aims to stay abreast of current eco-trends, incorporating sustainable or “green” design with a philosophy to “reduce, reuse, recycle” wherever possible whether the ultimate goal is decoration, renovation, conversion or architectural detailing. Jessica and her team have the training, knowledge, skills and experience to not only meet but exceed the expectation of the most discerning client, be the requirement 16th century French & British countryside, glamorous Art Deco or the latest contemporary eco-trends.

M&S Home

New Store Opening at Liberty Wharf M&S Home have just launched hundreds of new items, from furniture and home accessories to a huge lighting collection. Their new Liberty Wharf anchor store means they now have oodles of space for lots of lovely lines which they couldn’t have fitted into their old St Brelade’s site. We love their colourful cookware and utensils which should bring a touch of extra zest to your kitchen. Also, when you pop in to check out the new store you’ll be able to get a bargain as M&S have recently lowered the prices on thousands of ranges, without compromising any of the quality you’d expect from the brand.

BookMySpace – Going The Extra Mile BookmySpace is a locally run transportation company operating between Jersey and the UK on a weekly service. The company was formed when it was identified that a need existed for a one to one service being available at the end of the phone 7 days a week, a company that goes the extra mile. Offering a personal service is one of the key roles of the company. The lorry is loaded, taken straight to the destination and unloaded. There is no exchange of vehicles in large warehouses, no handling over and over again of the goods – just straight forward thinking all the way. They collect, ship and deliver – it’s as simple as that. Aside from day-to-day transportation for any type of household or commercial goods, they are well known for the IKEA shopping experience. Unlike other companies, they offer a regular service to IKEA, Homebase, Argos, Tesco, Asda and Toys R Us. So you only normally ever have to wait a few days before the driver is outside your house knocking on your door to deliver. They even have a license to deliver reptiles, spiders and fish! If you wanted to buy or sell something on EBAY but couldn’t work out how to get it between the Island and the UK Book My Space will provide you with a quote the same day. All you need to do is provide them with a description and weight of the item and a postcode for delivery. They also offer a removals and relocation service. To take the stress out of moving house they have boxes and bubble wrap, packing tape and scissors. So they will either help you pack, pack it all up for you, or just come round, load it all up and deliver. Their service is all tailored to what will suit you best and their prices are lower because they just offer the essentials. Book My Space are also registered clearance agents with Jersey Customs, so they can assist you in making your Goods and Services Tax (GST) payment in advance whilst the ferry is at sea, so it’s straight to your door and no delays on arrival. What is great about Book My Space is that they really think about all the small touches ; their drivers are really friendly and their office number is always available to ensure you are never talking to an answer phone. Straight forward thinking, to the point advice, without the frills. Open 7 days a week the team at Book My Space will be on hand for support and assistance.

How to Interpret a Survey Gill Hunt President of the Jersey Estate Agents’ Association takes a look at giving buyers an informed choice. We find that buyers can be unnecessarily disappointed by the survey report simply because they are not familiar with some of the terminologies used.

Mark Frei

Associate Negotiator Thompson Estates

Favourite Parish? St Lawrence Dream Car? Aston Martin Favourite Book? The Hitchhicker’s Guide to The Galaxy Favourite Film? Catch 22 Favourite Drink? Tea Favourite Holiday? Sailing holidays What possession would you save if your home was on fire? My golf clubs Describe your dream home? Country residence with sea views, heated indoor pool, extensive gardens and walled kitchen garden. Town or Country? Country Beach or Mountains? Beach Do you do any sports / hobbies? Golf / Sailing Where in the world would you most like your holiday home? France Do you have any pets? A west highland terrier

Increasing litigation and a massive rise in professional insurance premiums means that surveyors are understandably becoming very cautious as to how they describe their findings. For example, a survey might read, “We found no evidence of woodworm or rot, but would recommend further investigation by a specialist timber treatment company”. Very few, if any, timber specialists will provide a clean bill of health along with a 20-30 year guarantee unless they have actually been commissioned to carry out a timber treatment programme – at a price. Such caveats can apply to the causes of damp, wall fractures, etc. and to some extent render some surveys irrelevant. Ultimately it usually comes down to a matter of common sense, and even an acceptance of various imperfections as part of property ownership, especially in respect of older homes. A basement flat might not be quite as dry as a second floor flat; but does this make it uninhabitable? A crack that has existed but not expanded for 50 years may look unsightly, but does it really mean the property is falling down? Some woodworm is not uncommon, and is easily treated. Ultimately, unless the results of a survey express grave and clear concerns, then it is up to you the buyer, not your surveyor, to decide whether any alleged flaws are really likely to significantly affect your enjoyment of the property. So, as they say on Crimewatch …… don’t have nightmares!

What is the most unusual feature you have ever seen in a home? It has all been pretty normal!
