A majestic country house in Cannes

A majestic country house in Cannes

Built in the 1930s in the heart of a 12-ha park, this villa provides 1,200 sq m of living space

Built between 1920 and 1930, this gorgeous country house, ideally located, has an incredible view over the Mediterranean Sea and the Esterel mountain range. "Designed by architect Oliver Hill, this house has curb appeal, stresses the John Taylor agency. Few other properties in the region provide 1,200 sq m of living space with a 12-ha park." Vintage elements such as wood floor, exposed beams, stone arches and fireplaces have been retained and perfectly restored. The ground floor features a vast entrance hall with a rotunda, a splendid cut stone staircase, a cosy living room opening on the terrace, a fully equipped kitchen connecting to the summer living room, a library and a magnificent vaulted dining room. There are eight bedrooms in the upper levels, four of which are en-suites with dressings and bathrooms (one of the wings is reserved for guests). The basement houses a linen room, a kitchen and an indoor swimming pool, currently under construction. Other amenities include a 100-sq m keeper's house, a guest house, an outdoor pool and a clay tennis court surrounded by pine trees. Close to the Royal Mougins Golf Club, this fantastic estate is only 10 minutes away from the sea and 15 minutes away from Cannes' renowned Croisette Boulevard. Proposed price: 22,000,000 euros
