Completed in 1994, this remarkable architectural achievement is the work of the famous architect Pierre Louis Faloci, winner of the Équerre d’Argent prize in 1996 for his design of the Museum of Celtic Civilization.
On two floors set off by several parts jutting out sharply, the residence enjoys a delightful view of the Mediterranean and the Baou cliff in Saint-Jeannet. It is located in a quiet residential area on the commune of La Gaude, only 24 minutes from Nice's international airport and the sea. Facing south and east, the villa offers living space of approx. 280 sq.m in terraced and attractively landscaped grounds of about 3,400 sq.m. They play host to a heated pool 12 x 6 m to the south, and two architectural flights of steps to the north, leading to roof terraces on the upper level. Perspectives and plays on light underscore the beauty of this architectural feat. The house is in fact a very graphic wall of white breezeblock, offering architecture of strong symmetrical appeal.
It is comprised of an entrance hall opening out to a large living area consisting of a lounge with hearth, a dining-room and a second sitting-room conversing with the exterior through picture windows to the south and east. The living-room is overlooked by a mezzanine used as a study/office, crowned by the deliberately exposed breezeblock roof. The tour continues with a master bedroom with hearth and bathroom, three further bedrooms with two adjoining shower rooms, a laundry room and numerous terraces. A studio apartment of approx. 35 sq.m and a bowling terrain complete the amenities of this admirable property.
