Villefranche sur Mer :
Turn of the century stone built factory converted into a luxurious, contemporary ‘loft’ style villa overlooking Cap Ferrat and the Villefranche bay. Vast 300sqm reception space with 8 meter high ceilings designed around the period machinery which was used to purify the town’s water supply with Ozone. There are living and dining areas, spaces dedicated to working and a platform with a bespoke hifi set up for listening to music. Made to measure professional stainless steel kitchen designed by Alain Ducasse opening onto a teak wood terrace fitted with a large spa and enjoying panoramic views over the sea. There are 4 ensuite bedrooms, one above the kitchen with a private solarium and en suite bathroom, 3 more on the garden level, all fitted with audio/visuals and en suite bath or shower rooms. There is a laundry, a machine room and a separate apartment for guests. This is a beautifully executed conversion with exceptional appointments – full automation, Mcintosh hifi systems integrated into all of the rooms, a heated pool , a spa, hammam, cctv cameras, a parking platform for 2 cars and building permission for a 2 car garage and caretaker’s apartment.
Quality location in a quiet and discreet dead end road on the heights of Villefranche within walking distance to the shops and fast and easy access to the sea, to Nice and the airport and Monte Carlo.
Manhattan on the Riviera ! An exceptional one off proposition that would no doubt be impossible to reproduce !
