This pretty house dates back to the late 1960’s and is built over two levels for a total floor space of approximately 190m².
In need of some minor renovations, it sits atop a fenced, wooded plot of approx. 2700m² in a quiet residential area that was once the property of Baroness Alice de Rothschild, who owned huge swathes of land around Grasse in the early part of the last century.
The house is only a few minutes from the town centre and boasts the most amazing views over the Bay of Cannes.
Bathing in Mediterranean sunshine from mid-morning right the way through to late evening, the house oozes charm and warmth with its generous, bright and airy living spaces and four bedrooms, including a spacious 37m² master bedroom suite on the upper level.
But life outside is just as important and this house has plenty to offer, with its lovely pool area and vast terrace overlooking the trees, the perfect spot for dinner with friends on a warm summer’s evening!
The electric iron gate opens out onto the rear of the house and a parking area beyond, above the pool. To the left, a stone staircase leads down to the lower level and woods. The front door opens into the main living space on the upper level… A landing leads to a corridor with a guest toilet and the master bedroom suite to the left, with in-built cupboard space and direct access to a lovely, south-facing balcony with dominant views. Ahead is the living / dining room, with access to that same balcony and a lovely stone fireplace, a very cosy spot for the cooler winter months. French windows with book cases either side paint a very pretty picture, affording wonderful views and drowning the lounge area in glorious, natural light. To the right there is a functional, fully-equipped kitchen.
A central staircase with wrought-iron features leads down to the lower level, opening out onto a lounge / hallway area, leading on to the south-facing terrace… From here a corridor immediately to the left leads to a large bathroom and a twin bedroom beyond, with direct access down to the woods and the staircase leading up to the rear of the house. Further to the left is another bedroom, a single, with direct access to the terrace, shaded here as situated below the upper level balcony... To the right another large double bedroom of 22m² with a separate shower room and finally a utilities room, housing the gas-fired boiler, laundry facilities and storage cupboards for tools etc.
Finally, let’s take those French doors out onto the huge terrace, affording ample space for games, dining and relaxation, while off to the right is the large 13x6m pool and pool house, offering toilet and shower facilities and even a spare room. Outside areas in particular will require some attention (pool, terrace, studio and garden), while inside a fresh lick of paint and some minor renovations wouldn’t go amiss in certain areas. Gas-fired central heating, outside parking for two cars... To sum up, there is loads of potential in this lovely Provençal property, an ideal family or holiday / rental home just waiting to be discovered!
