St Saviour’s, of­fers in ex­cess of £1.5 mil­lion

For sale for the first time since its con­struc­tion 160 years ago, Fort Rich­mond, which comes with two acres, of­fers its new owner a chance to make a mark in the pages of his­tory. With a tran­quil coastal set­ting, it has been granted per­mis­sion for con­ver­sion to a pri­vate res­i­dence of five bed­rooms with six bath­rooms. Cooper Brouard (01481 236039)

St Martin’s, POA

Les Caches Hall dates from the 1700s and is reached via a long, brick-paved drive. De­spite its age, it’s been well kept and re­tains plenty of charm, in­clud­ing painted shut­ters, vaulted ceil­ings and wood­burn­ing stoves. There are five bed­rooms, an in­door pool and a ten­nis court and the pretty land­scaped gar­dens in­clude a pond with a per­gola in the cen­tre. Swof­fers (01481 711766)

Cas­tel, POA

In 25 acres and with all the de­light­ful seclu­sion that that en­tails, Beau­camp De Haut is a grand, hand­some coun­try house that’s on the mar­ket for the first time in 30 years. It fea­tures nine bed­rooms, a swimming pool, a ten­nis court, a walled gar­den, a sta­ble block, a barn and staff ac­com­mo­da­tion. Knight Frank (020–7861 1065) and Swof­fers (01481 711766)

St Peter Port, £5.5 mil­lion

Tu­dor Re­vival, half-tim­bered and very pretty, La Petite Vallee oc­cu­pies a sought-af­ter spot on the south­fac­ing val­ley slopes above Fer­main Bay, just out­side St Peter Port. It has seven bed­rooms (in­clud­ing the an­nexe), or­nate brick chim­neys and a glo­ri­ous or­na­men­tal two-acre gar­den that in­cludes a Vic­to­rian-style green­house and a la­goon-like swimming pool sur­rounded by an over­grown clois­ter. Martel Maides (01481 713463)

St Martin’s, £5.25 mil­lion

The heart-melt­ingly beau­ti­ful views from con­tem­po­rary Couin de Vacque are un­in­ter­rupted for 180˚. From its perch on the south-coast cliffs, St Peter Port can be seen, as well as Alder­ney, Herm, Sark and the French coast and the ground floor’s floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows open­ing onto the ter­race and the heated swimming pool mean you can en­joy the view to the full. The house has five bed­rooms and the gar­den has direct ac­cess to the cliff path. Swof­fers (01481 711766)

St Martin’s, £4.5 mil­lion

With seven bed­rooms and a staff flat, Le Vauquiedor Manor is ‘recog­nised as one of the is­land’s most at­trac­tive Ge­or­gian res­i­dences’, say agents. Set on the out­skirts of St Peter Port, the French in­flu­ence is ev­i­dent and the gar­dens, stretch­ing to just over an acre, have been beau­ti­fully tended.
