Vallauris, France

Glassbox – SOLD

300 sqm. – Living accommodation

Located on the commune of Vallauris, known as “the French centre of ceramics”, where Picasso and Jean Marais both chose to live for a while, this property at the heart of a residential area offers a sweeping view of the hills towards the sea. It is 8 kilometres from the centre of Antibes and 20 kilometres from Nice Airport.

Built in 2007, this villa which stands out for its assertive design is the work of a renowned Swiss architect who worked with Jean Nouvel. It follows the topography of its grounds of 2,000 sqm. laid out on terraced embankments. A cantilevered glass cube accentuates the villa’s highly specific architectural design. Laid out on three levels, it is set south-east towards a wooded garden reached through vast sliding windows on embedded rails. Its surface area is more than generous : approx. 300 sqm. Mostly made of glass, the façades reflect the light and the white of laurel flowers, giving a real explosion of fragrance in the spring.

The ground floor opens via an entrance hall with a benchseat in light wood, leading to a TV lounge and a bedroom/study with a bathroom. Stairs lead down to the lower floor, comprised of three bedrooms with shower rooms and windows opening out to the garden. Finally, the top floor provides a living area of approx. 70 sqm opening out to a 12 x 4 metre pool, and comprised of a living/dining-room and a kitchen divided into two islands. The master suite with its bathroom and walk-in closet completes this floor. The use of white granito with touches of blue for the floors is prolonged on the terrace, further enhancing the impression of continuity between indoors and out, in perfect osmosis with the Mediterranean art of living. Inside, transparency and brightness magnify the space. Slatted sun shields protect the glass walls from prying eyes and dazzling sunlight. Surrounded by lovely palm-trees, the terrace at the upper end of the property plays host to a jacuzzi. A large adjoining garage for three cars completes the villa.

From a technical point of view, the property benefits from an alarm system, insulating glazing, underfloor heating and reversible air conditioning.

For fans of light and discerning architecture.
