An 18th-C. property with a garden of 545 sq.m surrounded by the narrow streets of Le Haut-de-Cagnes, the historic part of Cagnes-sur-Mer.
This village house of approx. 350 sq.m built of stone bearing the patina from bygone centuries plays host to a well-preserved residence. A romantic hideaway of genuine charm where time seems to have stood still. In a commanding position, this building comprised of eleven main rooms offers views from Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat to Cap d’Antibes, not forgetting the hinterland: everything construes to appeal to the visitor in search of authenticity.
On three floors, the property offers:
– on the ground floor, an entrance hall, a lounge with fireplace, shower room, kitchen, dining-room and bedroom;
– on the first floor, a hallway, a bedroom with handbasin, bathroom, separate WC, and 2 further bedrooms;
– on the 2nd floor, 2 bedrooms, a large lounge/library, and a shower room;
– several cellars, terraces and two gardens complete the property.
The gardens with their succulent plants, age-old Tuscan cypress trees, and other Mediterranean shrubs and plants are a real haven of tranquillity.
Once owned by a writer whose name is inscribed in the Panthéon in Paris on the list of writers who died for France, this residence welcomed within its walls painters, writers, musicians and actors famous in the heyday of Cagnes.
These souvenirs create romantic charm whose beneficial effects can still be felt today. Renoir, Soutine, Modigliani, Ziem, Klein, all fell in love with this village and the hills surveying the Mediterranean… Now it's your turn!
Work on the programme, with high potential. The property, which could accommodate a swimming pool, is close to shops and only 6 km from Nice's international airport.
