Full Details

On the market for the first time since 1950, Bonaguil, a traditional Jersey Farmhouse which dates back to the 17th century, is situated in the heart of St Martin. In need of full refurbishment, the main house consists of five bedrooms and two reception rooms. There is also a large two storey granite barn, (which has no listing) that would be perfect for development, subject to planning. Steeped in Jersey history, some of the stone used to build the house was quarried from Les Ecrehous with only the front facade listed as Grade 4. The house has retained many original features, including the hearth in the original kitchen, with it's traditional ‘salt holes’ next to the fire that were used to keep the family salt dry. Surrounded by approximately nine vergees of land, including an orchard which is planted with traditional Normandy cider variety apples. The front lawn with a traditional apple crusher which leads to a lower cotil, has been allowed to return to nature since 1985. St Martin’s Church was said to be clearly visible from the front lawn in the 1950's. There is a deep well with a pump which supplies the house with all non drinking water, a 1950's greenhouse, a traditional pigsty now used as a store and a large stone woodshed. Parking for four to six cars is approached via a tarmac driveway to the rear of the house. Planning permission is still in place for the demolition of most of the north extension, and reconstruction to two floors with a new pitched roof. This will add a new kitchen/dining room with footbridge access to the back garden, and an ensuite bedroom and utility room. Viewing of this exceptional and unique home is highly recommended by vendors sole agent
