La Vieille Rondellerie is delightfully situated in a traditionally sheltered position along a no through private lane towards the west of the island. This traditional Sark property is surrounded by fields, vineyards and farmland yet is located a short walk from the shops, churches and island amenities. The mature gardens offer a splendid retreat together with a well established kitchen garden and ample space for recreation.
Sark is located about nine miles east of Guernsey and twenty three miles north of Jersey with access only permissible by boat with regular ferries to Guernsey and Jersey where there are international airports. Flight time to Gatwick is about thirty minutes by jet.
Sark is spectacular in both its scenery and its simplicity; its tranquil beauty is unmarred by cars and yet enhanced by excellent modern facilities and telecommunications for residents and visitors alike. Sark is self-governing through ‘Chief Pleas’ and is presided over by the Seigneur. Transport on Sark is restricted to the horse and carriage, the bicycle and ‘shanks pony’. Tractors are, however, allowed by licence for general farm work, carting of goods from the harbour, and personal transport by arrangement. Everyday shopping facilities are available on Sark together with a selection of excellent hotels, restaurants and public houses. There are 2 churches, a school catering for children to the age of 15 plus, and a busy Island Hall where the strong sense of a lively community ensures many interesting social events are organised.
Sark does not levy any income tax, property gains tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax or value-added-tax on its residents. Other local taxes are very moderate.
La Vieille Rondellerie is detached traditional granite Sark long-house nicely extended and renovated to provide family accommodation in a ‘walk-in’ condition. The living space has been very well utilised and the whole property was refurbished in the 1980’s and has been continually maintained to a high standard by its current owners. The buildings are sheltered and well positioned to take advantage of the rural views which are clearly visible both internally and externally. The garden provides a lovely setting for the property and is very attractive, well stocked, easy to maintain and gives plenty of recreational space for a family, entertaining and pets. The house, outbuildings and its curtilage extend to approximately 0.6 acres.
