Ref: 082022-009. Historic bastide nestled in the hills of Grasse in an intimate and privileged setting. Dating back to the mid to late 19th century, the property, set in almost 2 hectares of farmland, was dedicated to the local Grasse perfume and olive industry. At the end of the 1940s, after the Second World War, the main building, built on three levels, was enlarged by an additional wing. Today, the house is structured harmoniously around a central staircase. On the ground floor: cloakroom, a reception room, a library/lounge, a formal dining room, a piano room, a lounge with fireplace and a farmhouse kitchen. Opening onto various outdoor terraces and relaxation and dining areas. On the first floor: a living room/den, an office/library, the master bedroom with fireplace and the bathroom/dressing room. On the second floor: a large guest bedroom, adjoining bathroom, a bedroom/dressing room, and two additional bedrooms each with their own shower room. The house was renovated in 2009 to an impeccable standard, whilst retaining its historic charm with exposed wooden beams, Provencal floor tiles and hand carved stonework adorning the staircase. The extensive grounds were designed by renowned landscape architect Russell Page in the 1950s. The garden is structured around multiple terraces and ponds with hidden walkways and varied flora. Botanical enthusiasts will appreciate the properties of more than 60 olive trees, numerous fruit trees and mature plane trees. The entire garden is watered by a private well via an automatic irrigation system. The main house is separated from the pool area by a field of lavender to benefit from the greatest tranquility. Enjoy complete privacy and stunning views of the Grasse hills from the private pool area with summer kitchen, Moroccan style dining room and private guest accommodation offering two bedrooms, shower room. Extra-long saltwater pool with electric cover.
