An impressive, spacious villa with huge potential, perched high upon the cliff directly above Monte Carlo Beach, with breath-taking panoramic views over the principality and the Riviera coastline as far as Italy.
Set within its own 700m2 of mature terrassed gardens, with a pool and numerous private areas - all with spectacular sea views - this pretty villa is perfectly situated for direct access to Monaco and the beach. Beautifully bright and calm, this gem of a property offers a refined ambience, comfortable living space, and some of the greatest views on the French Riviera.
This typical Riviera villa was originally constructed in the mid 1940’s and has recently benefitted from extensive modernisation, with scope for the new owners to apply finishings to suit any individual taste and budget. Spread across two floors, with bright, spacious and airy accommodation, the villa comprises on the ground floor a large, open plan kitchen/dining room (30m2) with stunning views over the legendary Villa La Vigie, and the sea beyond. To the rear of the kitchen, a door opens into a fascinating cave cut from the rock, which serves as utility room and downstairs toilet. To the side, a door leads to the 3rd bedroom (10m2), with en-suite shower room (shower with sea views) and large sliding glass doors leading to the front terrace, providing incredible views across Monte Carlo beach as far as Port Hercules and the Palace.
From the kitchen, the main staircase rises to the first floor, leading straight into the large, well proportioned Salon (35m2). From the salon, large glass sliding doors lead onto the balcony/terrace, with panoramic views out to sea and across Monaco. To the rear of the Salon is a large cupboard/storage area, which could be converted to provide access to the roof and future rooftop terrace (stairs are already in situ). From the salon, a door provides access to the master bedroom suite (25m2), a beautiful, bright and thoughtfully laid out space with en-suite bathroom (the bath has a sea view) and views from the bed across the Mediterranean and the principality of Monaco. A second doorway leads to bedroom 2 (14m2), another beautiful room offering en-suite shower facilities, large glass sliding doors leading to the balcony/terrace and a side door leading to a private garden area with mature plants and seating, all with stunning views out to sea.
Plans have been drawn up and approved for extensive expansion and improvement of the property, with the addition of a fourth bedroom with en-suite bathroom(25m2) and a large roof terrace (100m2). More information is available on request from your agent.
The property is accessed from the private garage via steps leading at first to the lower garden level, a large area with a beautiful mature olive tree and extensive views over Monaco and out to sea. A self-contained cottage/studio sits at the western end, comprising a well sized kitchenette, shower room and main bed/sitting room with dreamy views over the Mediterranean as far as the eye can see. The Studio is currently used for short term holiday rentals. From the lower garden, steps lead to the main garden gate and ground floor entrance. From this level, steps lead to the upper garden levels and roof top area, which provides incredible panoramic views, and has the potential to be finished as a secure roof terrace. Behind the house is a small infinity pool, perched on the cliff in complete privacy and with fabulous views out to sea and over Monaco. Further steps lead to a high balcony and private seating area, also with stunning views.
In all, the villa provides excellent accommodation, high levels of privacy and well laid out, easy to maintain gardens offering peace and fresh, clean air. The world famous Monte Carlo beach club and championship tennis courts are within easy walking distance, accessible directly by stairs situated opposite the entrance to the villa. The property provides ample scope for even the most adventurous plans, and gives this villa the potential to be one of the most stunning properties this side of Monaco. The final elements of the renovation programme are still to be executed, meaning that the new owners will be able to finish the works to their own individual taste.
Easy access to the Principality, Italy and the A8 motorway make this a most practical location. It is rare to find an opportunity to own one of the most sought after views, easy access to Monaco, within a reasonable budget and with so much potential.
