Asking price for St John’s Manor reduced by £4.5m
ONE of the Island’s historic manor houses has had £4.5 million taken off its asking price a year-and-a-half after going on the market.
St John’s Manor, which dates back to the 14th century, is the home of Canadian-born international businessman and diplomat for Rwanda John Dick.
The manor house, which boasts 58 acres of land, was put on the market in January last year with an asking price of £22 million.
After failing to sell in the last 18 months, the price for the house and the estate has now been dropped to £17.5 million.
Included in the sale are two guest houses, a private chapel, a tennis court and leisure pavilion, horse stables and three lakes.
On the website of Wilsons Knight Frank Estate Agents, St John’s Manor is described as being ‘regarded among the finest and most prestigious country estates in the Channel Islands. It adds: ‘The St John’s Manor Estate is of some 58 acres total extent (including agricultural lands) and comprises a magnificent classical manor house, which stands totally secluded and surrounded by in excess of 15 acres of truly magnificent landscaped gardens and grounds, with beautiful serpentine, a wildlife lake and a stunning Japanese water garden.’
The estate was acquired by Mr Dick, who became the Seigneur of St John, when he moved to Jersey around four decades ago.
