OCCUPYING AN UNREPEATABLE BEACH-FRONT LOCATION.

Set in the very heart of St Brelade's Bay in what is regarded as one of Jersey's most sought-after locations, this beautiful traditional property is located alongside the Parish Church, directly over the beach.

Virtually unique, this historic granite residence enjoys an extensive frontage directly above the beach and commands magnificent aspects across St Brelade's Bay and goldens sands. Notwithstanding its prominent location, the property enjoys a deceptively high degree of seclusion.

This lovely period home stands set within generous sized picturesque gardens, of an extent that is not normally associated with a St Brelade's Bay location and the gardens include lawns together with mature planting, and aspects include unparalled views across the sands, to the pier and the full extent of the bay.

The house which is believed to originally date back to the 16th century, possesses most enormous charm and character and includes an original Jersey farmhouse homestead, together with later 19th and 20th century additions.

The accommodation currently provided, includes 4 receptions rooms, 6/7 bedrooms, and 5 bathrooms and there is excellent scope for a purchaser to adapt the accommodation to personal tastes and requirements.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY FOR A DISCERNING PURCHASER TO ACQUIRE THIS DISTINCTIVE HOME, WHICH OCCUPIES ONE OF JERSEY'S FINEST AND MOST EXCLUSIVE LOCATIONS

HISTORIC NOTE:
La Rocquaise was once owned by the internationally acclaimed surrealist French photographer Mdme. Claude Cahun.
She and her partner, Marcel Moore, purchased the property in the late 1930's and remained living there, through the years of the German occupation. They managed to successfully avoid the scrutiny of the German occupying forces and actively conducted German resistance efforts through the occupation years, until shortly before the liberation of the island, when they were arrested. Fortunately, the island of Jersey was liberated in May 1945 and the step sisters survived.
