Property details


Investment opportunity.
Fully tenanted with an annual income of £79,000. This impressive S.S.I. listed residence, was once one of the most important St Helier homes, situated next to the Old Governer's Office. Filled with original functional features that so often were ripped out in the 70's and 80's. The sheer size of this opulent dwelling is just astounding, and such a rare thing in a St Helier private residence. Over the last 5 years the current owners have painstakingly restored and improved this property with a mantra of 'originality and quality whatever the cost'. Tastefully furnished with period pieces to complete what can only be described as a one of town's best residential properties. Available fully furnished if required.
Huge 4 bedroom house
2/3 Bedroom top floor unit
