Tour a remodeled house with a classically elegant interior

When the couple who own this house on Jersey, one of the world’s best homes, first entered it, they discovered a view they wanted to build their lives around. From its vantage point on a hill, the house looks out over a sweeping lawn to Mont Orgueil Castle on the coastline and France out in the distance. 

‘We’d rented two other properties on Jersey but when our landlord decided to sell we felt we couldn’t live with the uncertainty any more,’ the owner elaborates. ‘My husband was just back from a business trip to Australia and I’d lined up some houses for us to view. This was the last property we visited and even though he was jet-lagged, he was excited by it and we both had the feeling this was the one despite it being over budget,’ says the owner.
