Details

One of Alderney’s most prestigious family homes, this imposing property is set within large private gardens and commands sea views into Braye Bay and beyond yet is central within St. Anne.

Built in about 1790, this large three storey Georgian house with multi room basement underneath exudes history with its fluted Corinthian columns framing an impressive front door with cobweb round-headed fanlight over.

The house is said to have been the residence of the military commander of the island’s garrison, yet a more recent document ponders whether it was for the naval commanding officer during the Napoleonic period because of the nautical motifs of the portico.

Its present configuration includes a grand entrance hall, living room, drawing room, kitchen, dining room, conservatory and cloakroom all to the ground floor. A striking stair case leads to a further reception room with wet room off, two bedrooms and a study. Whilst the second floor features an additional five bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The gardens present an outstanding artistic approach of differing levels, meandering paths and mature trees all set within traditional high stone walls.
