IN THE SPOTLIGHT: STUNNING JERSEY FARMHOUSE17/02/16
What have we got here?
A handsome fellow set over two or three storeys with gardens and outbuildings. Not much sign of actual farming these days...
Sounds rural. And old. Tell me more.
Jersey farmhouses may be old in age, but the space and style they offer suits modern families to a tee. Full of character but renovated to modern day standards, a farmhouse provides a spacious home that’s built to last. In a prime position with views over the countryside, there are big gardens for the kids to run wild and garages for cars, bikes and workshops. The large farmhouse kitchen is the heart of the house, a big warm hug as soon as you walk in. It’s the place for everything from family breakfasts to parties with friends. An aga and open fires will keep you cosy in winter.
Where can I find one?
These gems are dotted around the country parishes, peering out over courtyards or through archways.
Did you know...?
The use of either green or pink paint on farmhouse doors and windows is a sign of political allegiance dating back to the 19th century, when locals chose between the Charlot or Magot parties. Even today, the presence of established laurels or rose gardens in old houses gives a clue to the past political preference of former owners.
The best bits?
A true family home with history in an idyllic location. And did we mention this is a multi-generation home which means the grandparents can always be on hand to babysit!
A home loved by all the family where lasting memories will be made.
