Location
Hillcrest is an exclusive luxury close of individually Architect designed homes. The modern designed homes are sensitive to their vernacular and designed around the sites attributes, exploiting the sites topography and providing breath-taking and ever-changing views across St. Helier and out to sea.

From their elevated position along the top of Westmount, the homes will have stunning panoramic views across the town and St Aubin's Bay, including Elizabeth Castle, yet will be within convenient walking distance of St Helier's shops and amenities.
Design
Three houses are positioned along the ridge of the escarpment, arranged internally to maximise full advantage of the views, living accommodation extends out on to open terraces connecting inside and outside seamlessly, enlivening the full experience that the site affords.

House three, again along the escarpment, is designed with a traditional internal layout and blends a contemporary horizontal roof with a more traditional pitched slated roof to the site boundary.

Houses four and five along the escarpment edge are designed as inverted homes, bedroom spaces open out to the lower garden, whilst the open plan living room extends out through fully glazed sliding, folding doors to a large terraced area surrounded by frameless structural glazed balustrading. The buildings are completed with flat roofs of high performance industry leading membranes with brise soleil edging.

The design of the building has been purposely designed to blend with the topography of the site, accordingly houses four and five are set down into the site with lower level bedrooms and upper level living accommodation, and house three is more traditional in layout with living accommodation at ground level with bedrooms above.

A unique piece of artwork as part of the Percentage for Art Scheme will unite the concept for the buildings/the site relevance with the site name, in a dynamic piece of sculpture.

The houses range in area from circa 2600sqft to 3200sqft, providing functional, stylised, quality four plus bedroom accommodation appealing to families, couples or individuals alike.

The properties are being offered for sale off plan or fully completed. The potential for off plan purchase will allow interested parties the chance to develop internal specifications to suit more personalised requirements for a truly unique solution
