This unique property offers space, luxury and tranquility, right in the centre of one of Europe's most exciting cities. The property was originally an industrial building and has since undergone the most fabulous conversion into a contemporary 3-bed loft-style property, with a pool, views and glorious outdoor space.
Space and light featured heavily in the design brief and these are obvious throughout the property. There is a vast 356 m² of habitable space and the accommodation is set out over 3 floors. The middle floor is dedicated to the living space and has the kitchen and large living room, with access to the decked terrace. The upper floor has the master suite and the two other bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms and the master suite (50m2) has its own dressing room and terrace, with views across to the mountains. The lower level is currently used as a gym and cinema room.
The outdoor area is mostly decked and the two main areas (pool and terrace) are divided by a beautifully designed aluminium and wooden sunshade.
This property is located in Vieille Chapelle in the 8th arrondissement, one of the most sought-after in Marseille. The beach, shops and restaurants are all within 5mins walk. The city centre is also within easy reach.
France’s second city is situated on the Mediterranean coast so you can soak up that enviable sun, sea and sand lifestyle along with all of the offerings of a vibrant city.
Marseille may not be as polished as some of its neighbours along the French Riviera (Cannes, Nice etc) but the city has an edge to it and that’s the appeal.
The city has been designated a European City of Culture, something which has rejuvenated the city and enhanced the ‘melting-pot’ atmosphere that the city embraces.
The heart of city is the bustling Vieux Port. The day starts here with the age-old fish market where the fishermen sell their catch straight off the boats. The port is lined with seafood restaurants, bars and cafes – the atmosphere is lively and the setting is hard to beat.
Other highlights include the area around the Palais de Justice, which has become the foodie centre of the city, the trendy Le Panier district with its independent shops and contemporary architecture and the chic boutiques along Rue du Paradis (which the French do so well!).
The cities beaches are reputed to be some of the best in Europe and just outside the city is the stunning Calanques national park, where you’ll find jagged limestone coves and crystal clear waters.
Marseille-Provence airport is 15 miles from the city, and is served by both Easyjet and Ryanair. There is a 3 hour TGV service from Paris to Marseille and The Eurostar now has direct services from London to Marseille.
