Villa Cambray’s fantastic location commands a truly magnificent view over the entire south coast from St Helier around to St Aubin, with the coastline of France clearly visible in the distance. With ownership of the land to the south of the Villa falling within the Villa’s boundary the view will never be lost. The spectacular site deserves the sort of special attention and passion worthy of its location and for that reason, great care, thought, and painstaking attention have been expended to ensure that the facilities being provided and the lifestyle choices the Villa will offer have been fully maximized.
There is an immediate feeling of light and spaciousness upon entering the main lobby on the ground floor of the property, which is also prevalent throughout the entire Villa, with care having been taken to create as many open spaces as possible. This has been emphasised by the “floating staircase” which has been cleverly cantilevered into the structure, also providing an opportunity for some exceptional lighting effects.
The lift shaft in the foyer will be a special eye-catching feature of the Villa with the shaft being lined with composite back-lit marble panels. With a scenic glass-walled elevator car, the short ride from floor to floor will be an experience your passengers will relish.
The main living space at Villa Cambray has been specifically designed so as not to interfere with the panoramic vista and enable direct and open access to the outside entertaining terrace, pool, and dining areas
The dining area is positioned so that guests can enjoy the spectacular scenery through both the westerly and southerly-facing windows.
The sliding glazed panels can be opened to provide a seamless connection to the outside eating area. Ideal for summer buffets.
In the manner that would be expected, the owner’s suite commands the most impressive of views. Having its own private terrace, on the south side of the Villa overlooking the spectacular coastline, the sunrise to the left or sunset to the right can be enjoyed over coffee or cocktails.
The finishings throughout the bedroom are planned to be impeccable with Calicut marble, a luxuriant bathroom, walk-in large shower, modern appliances including a walk-in W.C cubicle with TV and automated, self-cleaning toilet.
Along with the master bedroom, there is an additional 4 bedroom suites.
We believe that the gymnasium and cinema are two of the outstanding facilities that Villa Cambray offers a buyer, enhances wellbeing and entertainment options. The 12-seat tiered cinema with laser projection, and 185” screen is perfect for hosting movie nights or watching sporting events.
The wine room is one of the villa’s principal optional areas. As currently planned, its capacity is approximately a thousand bottles. Its climate-controlled environment will be perfect for the maintenance of fine wines for daily enjoyment and aspiring collectors.
The office space within the Villa is located adjacent to the vehicle salon, allowing the owner to admire his prized possessions whilst working toward future acquisitions
The ancillary building to the north of the villa has currently been designed as additional office space, where the owner and supporting staff can be comfortably accommodated. With the facilities being proposed, other uses for this structure may however also be viable.
Starting in the summer of 2021 the scheme encompasses the meticulous crafting of the 8,450 sq ft residence from the bedrock of the southerly slopes of the Bailiwick to be ready for a second fix and final fit-out commencing in the autumn of 2022.
The subterranean parking for up to 8 vehicles has been included, as has the gymnasium, wine room, spacious cinema with 185” screen and laser projection, the 15-meter infinity pool, the two inner and one outer kitchens, the luxurious owner’s suite, the four guest suites, the lower and upper deck sun terraces, and outdoor dining areas, but also included is the absolute opportunity for the owner’s involvement in the final layout, interior design and material specifications and selections.
Having crafted the structure the way that we know purchasers will love; a new owner will then get the opportunity to work alongside us every step of the way.

A Buyer's Choice
The developer has meticulously planned Villa Cambray through until completion in a way that we think provides the ultimate in lifestyle opportunities.
But they understand that any owner coming into a residence of this stature will want the final living experience to be true to their own individual needs, styles, and preferences.
That is precisely why Villa Cambray is being offered for sale at the completion of the shell and core stage, allowing the new owner to thereafter guide us as to any personal desires, enabling our artisans to undertake all finishings and fittings in complete compliance with those wishes.
If for instance, the buyer would like to select the hand-cut match-book Italian marble for the owner’s suite, the flooring in the drawing-room, the oak paneling in the garage, a bespoke modern approach to the front kitchen, or even the tiling in the heated infinity pool, then those choices can be yours and we will deliver to those personalised specifications and vision.
The interior designers and bespoke furniture makers are on hand to assist with the process and to offer as much assistance and guidance as the owner requires throughout the course of delivering the ultimate product for the ultimate lifestyle.
The site upon which the Villa is being constructed was acquired in July 2019, with the expectation that works would be underway in 2020. It has, however, been an extraordinary world in which we have all lived recently, and quite understandably, the original schedule has gone back, by almost 12 months due to delays in planning and permissions.
The owner has, however, not wasted that time. Quite to the contrary. Every element of the project has been revisited and wherever possible improvements have been made.
One example is the total re-engineering of the lower ground floor structure and floor slab above to eradicate all columns or partitions that were originally thought to be essential. This is an area in which the structural engineering gurus have excelled. In so doing creating a dramatically improved open plan internal space, that can now be seamlessly connected to the equally amazing outdoor environment creating a summer setting to enthrall one’s guests.
They have also undertaken a detailed and thorough set of computer-simulated smoke and fire propagation plans to ensure safety and compliances with by-laws relative to evacuation.
So, the extra time has been of great value, enabling them to deliver what we now know to be the finest result they can possibly achieve from the site.
Building works are scheduled to start in July 2021, once the demolition works and ground clearance has been completed.
The shell and core will be complete no later than September 2022.
The Villa will be offered for sale in June 2022 to allow relatively seamless integration of the owner’s aspirations as we begin the final task of second fix and fine finishings, leading to a handover in the spring of 2023.
