Prestige Wilsons Estate Agents

Property Collection


Wilsons is a premier quality, very well established agency, dealing with all sectors of the Jersey residential property market, together with a specialist highly experienced team dealing almost exclusively with the high net worth sector of the market, handling homes in the £5m - £20m+ price bracket. Over the past 18 months Wilsons have successfully negotiated the sale of a wide range of premier properties to new 2(1)e qualifying

island residents, including the sale of the uber prestigious La Valette Estate, which secured the highest price ever paid in the Channel Islands. This specialist team is headed personally by the resident partners, Clifford Wilson and Aimee Sinclair-Horgan who have a combined 66 years’ experience in the industry, coupled with totally unequalled contacts and repeat business instructions.

The Jersey property market continues to make steady progress, with a healthy level of demand in most price ranges, balanced with a reasonable level of supply from intending vendors.

Prices in the lower and intermediate ranges have fairly cautiously advanced across a broad front, whilst in the higher (2(1)e) range,

£3m+, there has been continuing steady demand from wealthy newcomers, resulting in much of the ‘slack’ being taken up within this market sector and as a consequence prices having usefully firmed-up or advanced. The level of demand from 2(1)e qualifying persons is anticipated to increase in the coming months.

Whilst there is always a good level of demand for traditional style country homes, we find that the emphasis of demand from high net worth individuals, is increasingly focused on ‘cutting edge’ contemporary homes. Such homes, should if at all possible, have

stunning sea views and should feature the latest in technological innovation. According to size, specification and location, these

homes can have a value of anything between £5m and £10m, with the occasional truly sensational example reaching a value of well in excess of some £10m. Several such properties are currently under construction in the island, being custom built to private purchasers’ requirements.

Plans have recently been passed for an extensive redevelopment of the site. This includes new wings to the South and North plus various

improvements. The new owner has the choice to follow these plans or to

create their own version within the huge footprint that has been allowed. Alternatively just a cosmetic update would still leave a substantial luxury home. Plans are readily available for inspection.
