La Colle-sur-Loup, France
200 m2 – design by Jacqueline Morabito – SOLD
At the heart of the former capital of roses once cultivated for the perfume industry, this villa has been entirely rehabilitated and redesigned by renowned interior architect, Jacqueline Morabito. The result is spell-binding, with the decorator’s talent further enhanced by the world and works of the artist who lives here. This little corner of paradise is the fruit of the friendship between these two creators.
The villa offers living space of approx. 200 m2 in a landscaped garden of 414 m2. Its three floors are comprised as follows: living area on on the ground floor, sleeping area on the first floor, and at garden level the technical amenities and a vast artist’s studio, all benefiting from several terraces on each level, allowing one to enjoy the sunshine and quietness of the hinterland.
The tour begins on the middle floor: after pushing open the wooden front door with its lovely patina, one discovers the villa’s beautiful soul. The hall bids you welcome with a checkered marble floor retained from its past, extended to the left by the lounge area with its hearth, opening out to a vast sunny terrace, and laterally to the right by the dining-room with its minimalist made-to-measure kitchen, opening out to the lounge.
The nuances of white on the walls, table and central Corian island, the waxed concrete floor in the kitchen and the marble for the hall and staircase, all ensure coolness and light. Warmth is introduced by large windows letting in the sun and the magnificent unpolished parquet floors in the lounge and dining-room.
This level is prolonged by a superb U-shaped terrace around the house, with a surface area of 60 m2.
The upper floor devoted to the night area is comprised of two lovely bedrooms with walk-in closet, giving onto a south-facing terrace, a bedroom facing east, and a superb bathroom built of smooth plastered concrete. The view is truly delightful, with the sea in the distance and the old hill-top village of Saint-Paul de Vence to the east.
At garden level, the vast artist’s studio of approx. 64 m2 invites you to give free rein to your imagination, to discover or express your artistic soul. It benefits from a covered terrace of about 18 m2 facing east, a terrace of 53 m2 facing south, and direct access to the garden. This floor is completed by a lovely shower room.
The studio could be transformed to give three additional bedrooms, and the garden could also be enhanced by a lap pool adding a touch of coolness and well-being to this masterpiece.
Everything here basks in light and peacefulness, allowing your inspiration to take its natural course.
A chic and creative artist’s home for fans of the arts.
