Regarded as one of Jersey's finest homes, this magnificent and most distinctive period granite residence, is located in a much sought-after part of the island. It stands protected by several acres of beautiful mature parkland gardens and grounds and is widely recognised as being one of the island's most spectacular private gardens. A swimming pool and a tennis court are set within the grounds and there are delightful woodland walking paths, lawns, shrubbery, herbaceous borders, a rose garden and many other features that make this such an interesting and varied property.
Set in picturesque surroundings, Grey Gables is located within close proximity to the beach at La Haule and to St Aubin's Village / harbour, St Brelade's Bay, as well being a short drive away from the island's airport, crucially, without being on the flightpath.
The residence was built in the early 1900's, at the instance of a noteworthy local resident and is of The Arts and Crafts Movement architectural vernacular, incorporating many unique and appealing features in its design. Over relatively recent years, the property has been the subject of a significant, sensitive enhancement and refurbishment scheme and now presents as an outstanding family home. Restoration works have included reroofing of the principal structures.
The accommodation provided is most comprehensive and includes a fine range of elegantly proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms. A stunning feature is the first floor billiard room with full cathedral ceiling. There is also generous secondary accommodation in addition to a detached granite-built staff bungalow. Within the grounds, close to the house, is a fine artist's studio which was designed to be versatile and so accommodates a range of activities from bridge afternoons to being used as a gym and yoga studio.
Grey Gables is approached via an original granite entrance gateway leading to a large gravelled entrance forecourt. There is also a further secondary entrance drive and garages to the West.
