Stunning Detached Houses
Three luxury detached houses, all with gardens, have recently been completed at Fremont du Nord, Rue de La Mare des Pres,St John, by Grange Developments. Two of these very desirable residences have already been sold with only the last home to be finished remaining on the market. Priced at £9995,000, its 2,357 square feet of accommodation includes up to four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a lounge, an open plan kitchen and a cloakroom.
The site, previously used as a store by the States of Jersey, was purchased last June by Grange Developments which has established an excellent reputation for quality and fastidious attention to detail in the 12 years it has been constructing property in the Island.
The homes are arranged around a paved courtyard, and although each has a different aspect, they all and enjoy a quiet rural location with stunning views views over the St John countryside. They are within walking distance of parish amenities including shops, the school and community centre and are just a short journey from Bonne Nuit Bay.
Although they are all examples of traditional local architecture, each home has an individual identity with variations in size and design including external finishes. One of the other homes is finished with render and has the addition of an orangery in its garden while the second has random granite walls with dressed granite quoins and detail. The home still available has random granite walls with granite sills and red brick detail around window and door openings.
