Ref: 082022-009. Historic farmhouse hidden in the foothills of Grasse in an intimate and privilaged setting.
Originally dating back to the mid to late 19th Century, the property, set on 4.45 acres of agricultural land, was dedicated to the local perfume and olive industry of Grasse.
After the war in the late 1940s, the farmhouse, built on three levels, was seamlessly extended with an additional wing. Today, the house flows harmoniously around a central staircase.
On the Ground Floor: a Guest Cloakroom, Reception Room, Library/Sitting room, Formal Dining Room, Piano Room, Sitting Room with fireplace and Farmhouse Kitchen. Opening up to various outdoor terraces and seating/dining areas.
On the First Floor: a Sitting Room/Den, an Office/Library, the Master Bedroom with Fire Place and Master Bathroom/Dressing Room.
On the Second Floor: a Large Guest Room with adjacent Bathroom and Shower Room, a Bedroom/Dressing Room, and two additional Bedrooms with each their own Shower Room.
The house was renovated in 2009 to impeccable standard, all the while retaining its historic charm with exposed wooden beams, provencal “tomettes” tiles, and hand carved stone adorning the staircase.
The vast grounds were designed by esteemed landscape architect Russell Page in the 1950s. The garden articulates around multiple terraces and ponds with hidden passages and a diverse species of flora. Botany lovers will appreciate the properties 60 plus olive trees, numerous fruit trees, and mature platanes.
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 for total tranquility.
Enjoy total privacy and a stunning view over the hills of Grasse from the private swimming area with Summer Kitchen, Moroccan style dining and lounge area, and private guest accommodation (two bedrooms with shower room).
