A rare example of a characterful modern property, with beautifully tended cottage style gardens, sitting in an exclusive residential area and benefiting from both sea and rural views. 'La Forge' is located within the former Napoleonic battery of Fort George, perhaps the nearest thing Guernsey has to a gated community, and shares a boundary with the old militia parade ground of Belvedere Field.
The property has been recently refurbished and extended while the floorplan allows for the owners to live apartment style at first floor level, enjoying the best of the sea views and keeping the ground floor for ancillary accommodation and guests.
The gardens, while not especially large, are clearly a particular and delightful feature of the house. They include a number of different seating areas linked by meandering paths and an extended side garden that finishes in an elevated terrace and seating area, above the old forge itself, with open views towards Herm and Jethou.
