La Maison Rouge is a unique 2-storey timber-frame house of Canadian design that was completed in 2011. Open plan interiors make this property an enviable and comfortable family home, which is also perfect for entertaining family and friends. La Maison Rouge boasts a living area of 1962ft ² / 182m² on a site that is approximately 30m x 30m or 100’ x 100’. This timber-frame house is located towards the west coast of Sark, with access from a public pathway that also leads to stunning views from Window in the Rock and Port du Moulin.
La Maison Rouge has 4-bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms; two with baths and shower overhead, another with a shower and the fourth with a wet room. This spacious property is immaculately presented, in excellent condition, and tastefully decorated throughout. The property has been finished to a high standard and includes hardwood solid ash wooden floors throughout and solid white ash doors. Siberian larch is featured through the ceilings in the dining room and mezzanine landing, with an impressive 2-storey cathedral ceiling dominating the lounge.
The house was imported from Canada from the renowned Viceroy company and is the Carlisle Mark lll model. The house benefits from solar panels and a Charnwood Island multifuel burner, located in the lounge, providing heating and hot water from an 18kW back boiler, or by a 3kW electrical element within the water tank in the winter months, and is well insulated. The house is built to Canada winterisation standards with super E windows making the house eco-friendly and economical to run. La Maison Rouge uses LPG gas bottles for cooking and has use of a shared borehole. The property is double-glazed throughout, complete with insect screens.
There are two additional outbuildings; both have been built to housing standards and are fully insulated. One houses the water filtration system and could possibly be used as a laundry; change of use permission has been granted for this outbuilding to be converted into a living space which could also be an extra guest bedroom. The other outbuilding is currently used as a recording studio with solid ash flooring but could also make an ideal office or extra guest room.
The house has been operating as a B&B and, with continued permissions, this established business could remain.
La Maison Rouge has mains electricity, hot water is heated by solar panels in the summer and is centrally heated by a Charnwood Island multifuel burner in the winter or by a 3kW electrical element within the water tank, LPG gas bottles, shared borehole, with a sealed pit for sewage.
