Overlooking the Old Town and the Bay of Angels from the Heights of Cessole, this splendid house, built in 1856, has a massive 265 m² of habitable space and grounds of just under half an acre with a pool. The interior is a perfect marriage of the contemporary and the historic. The property is just 15 minutes from the airport.
With glorious views of the Mediterranean and the city, this atmospheric house is 10 minutes from the La Libération quarter of the city and the Gare du Sud. It is 20 minutes’ drive from the Principality of Monaco and also from Sophia-Antipolis and Nice international airport is 15 minutes away.
Nice, capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera, sits on the pebbly shores of the Baie des Anges. Founded by the Greeks and later a retreat for 19th-century European elite, the city has also long attracted artists. Former resident Henri Matisse is honoured with a career-spanning collection of paintings at Musée Matisse. Musée Marc Chagall features some of its namesake's major religious works.
The building has been entirely revamped in a somewhat eclectic style but one that encourages a feeling of wellbeing and a sense of the good life. The accommodation, measuring a very spacious 265m² of habitable space, has the feeling of a family house and, on the main level, consists of the living areas which open on to the garden and enjoy the breathtaking sea views. First is the very large sitting room with fireplace and a corner dining area, a separate kitchen, large study and a utility room.
The fine, original staircase leads to the two upper floors. On the first floor, there is a suite with a large bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. There are two further bedrooms which share a shower room. On the second floor is the master suite of impressive dimensions which occupies the tower of the house. This consists of a large bedroom, a dressing room and bathroom.
In the basement there are a large number of store rooms. The grounds measure 1800m² (0.44 acres) and include a lovely pool. There is plenty of car parking behind the house.
