Exquisite villa overlooking magnificent beaches of La Garoupe presents rare offering in French Riviera’s Cap d’Antibes

Views spanning from the Bay of Antibes to the French Alps, this two-acre property offers three separate structures and magnificent gardens designed by Jean Mus

London, U.K. (August 29, 2019) — This modern Provençal-style estate combines architectural excellence with a storied locale in the French Riviera to create a residence beyond compare. The main residence, all on one floor, boasts three bedrooms with en suite baths, a bright and airy reception room, a formal dining room, a gourmet kitchen and a vast veranda overlooking the gardens and the Bay of Antibes and Nice. Jean Mus, the world-renowned landscape architect, designed the gardens and greenery that surround the estate to create a verdant, private sanctuary. The master suite is a pampering oasis that opens out to the lovely gardens.

Located in the one of the most sought-after areas of France’s Cap d'Antibes, this timeless residence is offered at price upon request by Michaël Zingraf Real Estate with global marketing services provided by Christie’s International Real Estate.

This secure property is buffered by walls of mature trees and composed of three separate structures offering almost 10,000 square feet of luxury living. The external architecture of the veranda’s rounded colonnades is artistically mirrored inside with remarkable vaulted ceilings. Perfect for indoor-outdoor entertaining, the impressive fireplace and glass walls in the living room allow for year-round enjoyment of the home’s enviable views and locale.

A separate, two-story guest house has four bedrooms with en suite baths, a reception area, a kitchen and dining room. The caretaker’s house offers an additional three bedrooms, reception and dining room. The property includes a two-car garage and additional parking on-site.

Said Georgina James of Christie’s International Real Estate: “The French Riviera is renowned worldwide as one of the globe’s most glamorous destinations and this estate is located in one of its most exclusive enclaves. A property of this scope and beauty and location is truly a rarity. The magical gardens of Jean Mus elevate the estate to new heights.”

Jean Mus has been likened to a painter or poet with flowers and plants his medium. His designs are notable for being in harmony with nature, capturing scents and colors to create gardens to delight the senses. Mr. Mus’s Mediterranean landscaping at the Cap d'Antibes estate cover the entire two-acre property. The gardens are a haven of complete privacy and tranquility with manicured lawns, exotic trees, flowering plants, a landscaped pond with a waterfall, and walking paths throughout.

The property also hosts a resort-style sun terrace with heated infinity pool, pool house, and views of the expansive garden and the stunning locale.

Martine Lemoine, the broker for Michaël Zingraf who is representing the property, said: “Considering its location, its quality and its sea views, this property is a unique residence even for Cap d’Antibes.”
