Auction of Fields

On Tuesday 16thJuly, Martel Maides will be giving islanders the opportunity to bid for their own little piece of this paradise island, including some excellent agricultural fields. A public auction of 13 fields, split into 12 Lots, are to be offered for sale at the Cornet Street Auction Rooms at 6.00pm..

There will be a cliff-top field for sale in Torteval, fine agricultural land in St Saviours and Castel and, rather unusually, two good sized fields in the heart of St Martins will also be under the hammer as well as a waterfront field in the Vale.

One of the Lots to be auctioned by Martel Maides is located about as far north in the island as you can possibly go without falling off. It is located in the area known as La Maraive in the Vale and is accessed via a track from La Route de la Lande. The field is only separated from La Fontenelle Bay by a footpath. Despite being so close to the water’s edge, this field is remarkably well drained and would make a wonderful place for parties and picnics, but can also be used for traditional agricultural purposes.

Another Lot that is expected to attract a great deal of interest is an adjoining pair of fields just off Saints Road in St Martins. It is most unusual to have an opportunity to bid for such good fields in the heart of St Martins.

Three good sized fields off Candie Road in Castel are up for sale as well as 4 top quality fields in St Saviours, close to the St Andrews border.
