Description

Formerly the home of a well known actor, a spectacular, important and extremely rare property benefitting from a unique position just a short walk from the Colombe d'Or. Enjoying post card views of the village of Saint-Paul and the sea beyond together with a dominating and perfectly quiet location within the most exclusive and sought after "domaine" in the area, this extraordinary estate actually comprises, as well the bastide/main house, two guest cottages and a staff house, the ensemble being in perfect condition for having been comprehensively renovated quite recently by the previous owner (again an important media personality). This most attractive "demeure" lends itself particularly well to large scale and high level entertaining and stands in beautifully landscaped grounds of 5 000 m², a most worthy crown for this fabulous jewel ! Double security gates at the entrance to the private estate give a first indication that the properties thus protected are somewhat special . and it is the case. The gates to the property itself, themselves a work of art, again offer an intriguing "avant goût" of what is to be found behind them ! This commences with a long, beautifully planted drive leading to a generous courtyard adjoining the main house. Access to this is directly into the huge and spectacular living room with its monumental fireplace, open plan staircase and full width French windows offering unhindered access to the particularly convivial "summer dining room" (with its 20 seat table) from which guests appreciate the incredible panorama of the village directly in front. Completing this level is a professionally equipped kitchen together with a second, outdoor, catering kitchen. The upstairs is almost entirely taken up with a thus monumental master suite, extending again onto a theatrical terrace with its Jacuzzi (the glass floor of which as actually a light well for the sitting room below) and from which to enjoy, but this time privately, the extraordinary vista. This floor also comprises a guest suite and a study. Guest cottage 1: built on 2 floors and adjoining the pool this very pretty stone built "mas" comprises on the ground floor : an apartment with 2 suites, a sitting room and very pretty terrace and upstairs ; a 2nd, independent apartment with 2 further suites and a terrace. Guest cottage 2: the original old "bergerie" is now a perfectly adorable little "hideaway" comprising a sitting room, with the original bread oven and a bedroom. Pool-house: at the far end of the pool area and again built entirely in stone, another very special "mazet" built on 2 floors, the lower of which has a spectacular window into the pool and formerly used as a "party room". Pool-side barbecue/bar. Staff house : located at the end of the property. The gardens, designed by the highly reputed Jean Mus set off the estate quite remarkably and comprise a wealth of typically Mediterranean flore including olive trees, rosemary and lavender but also include, via some very pretty and perfumed paths, several, almost hidden, pergola-shaded sitting areas, particularly conducive to siestas. Garaging and car ports for 8 cars.
