Unique large urban villa, Niçoise-style with a nod to the “Belle Époque “, built around 1930 under the supervision of Architect Sylvain Furet, known for his typical “Belle Epoque” style.
After many uses, the villa was thoroughly renovated around 2011/2012 with input from International interior designer/architect “Piet Boon” from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. A central kitchen was chosen as the centrepiece of the house, natural tones combined with white walls, high pivot doors, oak parquet floors, spot lighting (Modular), many niches for art objects, high 3-meter ceilings, skirting boards and spacious landing areas.
During the renovation, all water and electricity pipes were replaced and all floors, ceilings and many walls were insulated. All walls were re-plastered. Hitachi-Airco-reversible installation with two heat pumps. The roof has been renewed and insulated as well as fitted with two new chimney flues so that a fireplace can be installed in the bedroom if desired.
The villa stands on a plot of 600 m2, much of which is south-facing garden, with an ancient Linden blossom and a beautiful Magnolia providing welcome natural shade in summer. In the garden is a 7-metre swimming spa with separate jacuzzi and a hardwood terrace surrounding it. The garden is sheltered.
There is ample space to park several cars.
