Michelle Mone, a lingerie tycoon, baroness and now British conservative politician, has put her seven-bedroom mansion on the French Riviera up for sale.
The businesswoman, nicknamed “Baroness Bra” for founding the lacy undies company Ultimo, is selling the idyllic home in the Cote d’Azur for €15 million (US$17.12 million). It’s one of six properties and two superyachts Ms. Mone owns between her and her new paramour, British businessman Douglas Barrowman, she told The Sunday Times in a Q&A.
“I’m probably happiest when gazing at the 180-degree views from our terraces over the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer and St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat,” she said, referring to the home, which has sprawling outdoor terrace space—including an infinity pool and spa—that looks over the water.
Despite her professed love for the place, it’s now listed with global brokerage Knight Frank. She told The Times she’s selling the home and likely one of the yachts they own, and dreams of having a sailboat built in which she and Mr. Barrowman can cruise around the world.
The home is built into a rocky bluff with green and flowery landscaping spilling over on the outdoor spaces. There’s a lounge where one can screen movies al fresco and an outdoor dining room that flows from one of the house’s living rooms, according to photos from the listing.
Inside is a billiards room with a wet bar, and an indoor spa with a massage table and fitness equipment.

Ms. Mone, whose enterprises include interior design work, has decorated the sunny getaway in neutral tones brightened by sparkling chandeliers, photos show.
“The current owners have meticulously restored and beautifully designed the contemporary interiors, to work sympathetically with the house and to make the most of the dramatic hillside setting,” says the Knight Frank listing.
The property comes with staff accommodation and private parking.
A representative for Ms. Mone did not immediately return a request for comment.
