Greenhill, a St Peter property with an original 17th century facade

Greenhill in St Peter is said to be one of the best examples in Jersey of an untouched 17th century facade. There is a round arch dated 1674, the roof has not been raised and the windows retain their original proportions. There are stones inscribed AMP SDM and NPM, but these have not been deciphered.

"We have here a picture of what a rather superior and substantial house looked like towards the end of the century, and that is soon after Jean Chevalier was writing his diary", Joan Stevens wrote in Old Jersey Houses.

Sadly that is all we are told about what could be considered to be one of the most important 17th century properties in the island.
