Type of property

Early 19th century country house


There is a record of the sale of undivided shares in the property in 2019 for £1,879,594. This was presumably a private transaction because the property was on the market for £2.5 million in 2021, described as the first time it had been offered for 50 years

Families associated with the property




Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

This early 19th century house, with its earlier core, has fine ashlar stonework. It retains original features and its historic character and cohesion as a grouping.

Historic farm group. Two-storey five-bay farmhouse with detached outbuilding (bakehouse?) to rear, two-storey L-plan west wing, and small detached granite rubble outbuilding to southwest.

Interior features of interest are the granite fireplaces and recesses in the ground floor lounge and dining room as well as an original staircase.

Old Jersey Houses

An entry in Vol Two suggests that the 1832 stone was erected by Philippe and Marguerite Anley when they moved to the dower wing on their retirement. This is wrong, and it's very difficult to see how the author could have arrived at such a strange assumption. The family relationship is actually the reverse of that suggested. Philippe and Jeanne were the parents of Philippe and Marguerite

It is also suggested that the Moise Luce on the earlier stones was one of the 12 men chosen in St Helier to report and advise on the property and lands of 'delinquents', the title chosen by Cromwell for any who did not support his cause
