The House

When The National Trust for Jersey was gifted 16 New Street, in 2003, it was barely standing up. A year later, a £1 million donation allowed The National Trust to restore the house from the ground up. 16 New Street is now back to its former glory, a beautiful Georgian town house in the shopping heart of St. Helier.

History

In 1730, 16 New Street was built by a prominent property developer as part of a town project. By the early 19th century, the then owners refurbished the property to the new architectural fashion, changing windows, doors and even the roof to accommodate the modern Regency style. During the following hundred or so years, the place became a letting house, a Gentlemen's club, the premises for Jersey's YMCA, a manufacturing workshop and finally a storage facility. At this stage the house wasn't looked after any longer and the persistent lack of maintenance led to inevitable decay.

Visit

Now fully renovated, 16 New Street plays an important part in St. Helier's historical heritage and is well worth a browse. You can admire the Georgian interior and have a look in the little shop just a few steps off the main pedestrian shopping street.
