A COUNTRY mansion 15 times the size of an average Jersey house has gone on sale for £25 million – and could become the most expensive property ever sold in the Island.
Maison de la Valette – built in 18 acres of land in the heart of Trinity – boasts five bedrooms, four reception rooms, a wine store, a cinema room, a swimming pool and an orangery - and if it fetches its asking price, the sale of the 22,000-sq-ft residence will eclipse that of Daisy Hill House in Grouville, which sold for just under £19 million last year.
London-based estate agent Knight Frank are working with Wilsons, of Jersey, on the sale of the huge mansion, which took five years to build. Wilsons Estate Agents refused to comment on the details of the property.
The pristine white-walled building, which appeared in The Sunday Times ‘Houses of the Week’ list on Sunday, was built just two years ago for an international property developer as his principal home, but Peter Edwards, leading on the sale for Knight Frank, told the JEP that ‘not many offers had been made to date’.
