€4,200,000 ID: 148173

A 120-hectare estate dominating the French Riviera at Estéral in Nice, extraordinary views along entire coastline.
The Château, dating back to 1646, comprises roughly 500 m², ceiling and wall panels decorated with frescos and moulding, a chapel.

There exists a 400 m² farm on the domain, very beautiful trees. The grounds and buildings are to be upgraded. Nice Airport is within 20 minutes.

This is quite a rare opportunity to revive a grand and noble estate of Provence heritage.
Its size and location near Grasse as a virtual balcony overlooking the French Riviera, make of it a solid and long-term investment; an agricultural project may also be envisaged.

  • Environment 

    Exceptional historical estate which seems to “fly over” the French Riviera at Estérel (“Côte d’Azur de l’Estérel”) in Nice, extraordinary view of entire coastline, notably Cap d’Antibes and at times, right through to Corsica. The village of Tourrettes sur Loup is located but three kilometres from the Nice Airport, within 20 minutes. 
    - The property is to be renovated. 

  • Château
    Noble country manor dating back to 1646 composed of an ensemble of buildings, with an upper level built over the ground floor and attic, flanked by two square towers. The East tower is not included in the sale, surrounded by a row of hedges enclosing a small garden, this common ownership does not jeopardise usage of the property. 
    Floor area approximately 500 m², roofing entirely restored to new in 2006. Two stairways lead to upper levels, ceiling and wall panels decorated with frescos and moulding, a chapel. 

    - The Farm
    Below the Château, the farm stretches longwise and comprises two levels for roughly 400 m² of floor space. 
    - The Ruin
    An imposing ruin, the “Jas Vieux” is located in the heights of the Estate to the West of the Chateau. The roof having fallen in, is not guaranteed for reconstruction. It measures roughly 500 m². 

  • The Plot

    120 hectares / 296 acres in a single plot and facing the scenic view due south. Forest of tall trees surrounding the Château with very good possibility of reviving the original Park; stairs, alleys and fountains to be restored.
