To the manor born


Jersey is home to some truly picture-perfect locations - an idyllic place for a country escape. Aimee Sinclair-Horgan of island-based agents, Wilsons Knight Frank, explains why Maufant Manor is one of her property favourites

What Jersey lacks in size it certainly makes up for in character. A glorious island with some of the hottest summers in the British Isles and a rich and varied history, the island has plenty to offer its thousands of yearly visitors – it’s also a popular place to set up a second or even permanent residence.

Located just three miles outside of the historic capital, St Helier, Maufant Manor is a property worthy of its stunning surrounds. This charming country estate stands in an unspoilt rural part of the Parish of St Saviour, the second largest parish on the island and birthplace of 19th century actress and socialite, Lillie Langtry.

There has been a property on the estate grounds since at least the 14th century, and the manor’s current incarnation has in recent years, been the subject of comprehensive yet location sensitive modernisation and improvement to create a traditional, yet practical family home.

Facilities within include; high quality independent guest and staff cottages (three and two bedrooms respectively) and a multi-tasking leisure complex which incorporates a spacious home cinema, well-equipped gym, games room and billiard/ party room.

According to Aimee Sinclair-Horgan of Wilsons Knight Frank, the estate saves its best features for the outside, with around 33 acres of landscaped gardens, grounds, orchard and agricultural lands.

“The gardens are stunning,” she says. “For me, they’re the most appealing feature of the property – the feature lake is truly spectacular. And with a hard tennis court and a wellsheltered heated swimming pool onsite too, the lucky person who snaps up the property will have a home to be proud of.”

Even the entrance to the main house has a touch of class, with a mature beech tree lined driveway leading up to automatic gates. The accommodation in the main residence is ideal for entertaining family and friends and includes three large reception rooms, a study, five-bedroom suites, and a magnificent family kitchen opening to a fine orangery /dining area, which accesses directly into the gardens.

“We’re really pleased to be able to offer this property,” says Aimee, “It’s a genuinely unique purchase, and we look forward to seeing the next life chapter that the future owners make for themselves there.”

“We’re advising people to book viewings with us now, as we’re not expecting this home to be on the market for very long.” she adds.
