Beautiful Neo-Provencal villa above Grasse with stunning panoramic views to the bay of Cannes
This lovely villa was completed to the highest specifications in 2012 and sits peacefully in a woodland environment of just under 1 hectare that was once the property of Baroness Alice de Rothschild, member of the iconic family behind so many beautiful architectural and botanic masterpieces on the Côte d’Azur and elsewhere in Europe. At only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, its beautifully-landscaped gardens and lawn, replete with many a Mediterranean plant and shrub, boast amazing views over Grasse Old Town all the way down to the sea.

The villa oozes contemporary style and comfort with its large, open living spaces and 3 sizeable double-bedroom suites, each with access to a terrace spanning the full length of the building. Throughout there is a tasteful mixture of noble materials such as Egyptian marble and Scandinavian black granite, along with fixtures and fittings of the highest quality and an elegant, central staircase with wrought-iron features.
The immense lower level comprises a beautifully-decorated main reception room of over 80m² with large dining and lounge areas, a fully-equipped contemporary kitchen and two offices. When venturing out onto the beautiful lawn, a barefoot stroll in the lush grass is a must on your way to the swimming pool, heated for the cooler months, with its south-facing sun terraces and a view that is simply to die for!
Once through the wrought-iron gates the driveway leads down to the main entrance of the house, with a large double garage to the right. There is a nice covered terrace that will afford relaxing moments in the shade, ideal for reading or a game of chess. To the left is a staircase leading down to the garden as well as direct access to the upper-level terrace. The main entrance of the villa opens onto a landing that leads to the three double-bedroom suites including one master with a corner office and walk-in wardrobe, two with a bathroom and one with a shower room, as well as a hydraulic lift servicing all three levels of the villa immediately to the right (two main levels and the basement).
Taking the central staircase down to the living area, the generous proportions of the reception room are as striking as the impeccable quality of the finish. There is plenty of light and colour afforded by the three big bay windows, facing south-east and opening out onto the garden. Immediately to the right are a dressing room and a corridor leading to the kitchen. To the left and if required, the two offices could easily be converted into a further master bedroom suite of up to 30m², opening directly onto the lounge via double sliding doors. Other notable features include an elegant, enclosed, wood-burning fireplace, a complete home cinema projection system with a 3.5m / 136” retractable screen, full home automation and integrated security systems.
From the garden, this level of the property extends further out to the right towards a large terrace with retractable awning for outside dining, entertaining or indeed further relaxation, leading on to the swimming pool with its pool house, summer kitchen, sun loungers and shower facilities.
Equipped with double-glazing throughout, aerothermal heating and a thermodynamic water heating system, the villa is highly energy efficient, respectful of the environment and cost effective. The 145m² basement offers further development possibilities and could indeed be your “cherry on top” for this exceptional property!
