The stunning restoration and refurbishment of Highcliff in St John has transformed this traditional granite country estate, stables and paddocks into a striking and characterful family home with magnificent infinity sea views across 15 acres of land above Bonne Nuit Bay on the North coast of Jersey. The approach the DiCasa team have taken on this spectacular property is nothing short of a Herculean feat. While trying to be acutely respectful to the original building, this complete refurbishment has produced a home both stunning and traditional, yet also strikingly modern in execution and finish.
The former garage has been converted into a luxurious two-bedroom en-suite guest cottage for the possibility of multi-generational living while also offering a fabulous detached home office accommodation if so desired.
There is no doubt that Highcliff is one of a kind, set within gracious formal gardens, mature woodlands and natural coastal headland. A boundary-pushing refurbishment set on a magical spot with a vista across undulating coastal landscape with the DiCasa hallmark of luxury and highly deserving of closer inspection.
The main house is magnificent in its own right and the team were determined to retain its character and they have succeeded in their vision. It’s far from what you would expect and contains the signature DiCasa colour palette of luxe nudes and taupes, complemented with rich dark oak wooden flooring and velvet carpets across this five-bedroom en-suite mansion.
The imposing hallway is refreshingly bright and modern but with exquisite traditional touches like the vintage radiator covers, leading to an impressive walnut rail and wrought iron staircase.
The rich dark flooring continues into a formal drawing room and large dining room, finished with luxurious fabrics, elegant rugs and a wonderful collection of antiques strategically placed to make use of the space. The sumptuous colour scheme contains splashes of colour, bold and brave but not too much. The choice of accessories and sculptures provides an instantaneous homely feel.
Highcliff’s kitchen has an impeccable layout, neutral and pale blue palette and traditional four-oven Aga cooker. The effect of this neutral colour scheme is welcoming and cosy, minimalist and fresh. Reconfigured to produce an expansive island with three breakfast chairs and marble white top, there’s a serenity, luxury and comfort to this stylish kitchen.
Highcliff also offers the perfect family room, which has been beautifully decorated around a wood burning stove, surround sound cinema TV and blackout curtains. The thought of winter drinks and dinners around a roaring fire and log burner is too delicious to imagine, especially with their half-moon luxe sofa.
Wood burning stoves are more efficient and cleaner too and excellent alternatives to an open fire. Sustainability is key in every DiCasa home with their designers considering the environment, social and economic impact of every refurbishment, totally committed to sustainable construction and greener living.
The bedroom suites are set across the first and second floors of this grand property. The luxe velvet carpet is throughout giving one that audacious hotel feel. The first-floor master bedroom suite combines contemporary furniture shapes with traditional detailing. Gold gilt antique mirrors adorn the walls and walnut antique pieces align the bedroom.
Each bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, an essential requirement for the modern family. The bathrooms in this vast home are en-suite, finished with underfloor heating, luxury sanitary ware and marble. The only thing one needs to bring when you move in is your clothes. Even the bathrooms come complete with robes, towels and the obligatory Sonos surround sound.
The former garage has been converted into a luxurious two-bedroom en-suite guest cottage, in the same neutral and luxurious colour palette. Substantial in size the guest house has an open plan kitchen and sitting room with a romantic Juliet balcony that overlooks the grounds and swimming pool. Next to the pool there is also a self-contained pool house which contains a full kitchen, changing and shower facilities with inbuilt Sonos to the exterior walls making for fun pool parties. The pool itself has been completely refurbished with new contemporary lighting.Bedrooms: 6
