The house was used as the headquarters and entertainment by the head of the infantry during the German occupation and has German tunnels/bunkers that ran under the property to the Savoy Hotel nearby which was one of their headquarters. A bunker was also built in the courtyard between the first and second world wars. Please ask and happy to show you.

I live in Jersey, Channel Islands but I have also lived in the UK, Wales, Cape Town, Spain and Italy.
I work in finance and household partner runs a hairdressing and beauty salon. I enjoy restoring properties, interior design and run a few rental properties. So I very much understand the issues of and running let properties.
Having grown up in the hotel trade I also appreciate the hospitality business. I enjoy my home and respect others homes and have been persuaded to become a host from friends that stay as guests!
I enjoy fine and simple surroundings, whilst enjoying dining out, watching the world go by with a glass of wine, meeting people, exploring and being wondered by new destinations and historic sites. I am an art fan from old masters to contemporary and when relaxed enough a frustrated painter, although been too busy the last few years to indulge this.
I look forward to being welcomed as a guest in your home or you in mine and making your acquaintance.
