Magnificent cottage on site of the old train station in Gorey Village. The Jersey Eastern Railway began its service from St Helier to Grouville on 6 August 1873. A few weeks later on Wednesday, 27 August, the line was extended to Gorey Village and this building served as the station. Eighteen years later the line was added to further as far as Gorey Pier, opening in May 1891. The service ran for more than 50 years, until its closure in 1929. In 2003 Antler Properties redeveloped the site which involved taking the building back to the bare shell.
In keeping with the theme, the resulting cottage has various features including a railway style board showing the house name, and a patio going to the side of the original platform. The finish is to a very high standard with features including natural slate floor tiles throughout the ground floor and stylish windows befitting the character of the building.
A stunning house with oodles of character and an exciting history ideal for a couple or single person. Although it only has the one bedroom, the house is more spacious that first impressions suggest. Contact the owner's sole agent now to view.
