Col de Villefranche France
A masterpiece awaits in the French Riviera.
Originally constructed in the middle of the 19th century, over the past few years this property
was extensively and whole-heartedly revamped and renamed Villa Gabrielle.
Villa Gabrielle was lovingly restored keeping all the key characteristics one expects of such a
historical property, yet enhanced intelligently and thoroughly with care while integrating all of
today’s modernizations expected.
The time, efforts, and details taken to give this majestic estate a new lease on life are absolutely
clear and not just for the short term but for many years to come.
Serenely perched on what feels like the top of the world in Col de Villefranche, this substantial
south-facing estate on a flat plot of 4200 sqm offers you 360° panoramic views towards Nice
and the Bay of Angels, Fort du Mont Alban, down towards the Mediterranean Sea over the Bay
of Villefranche and the peninsula of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.
While this property dominates the hillside, it still benefits from total privacy and a place where
one can watch the sunrise and set each day.
Outbuildings included, there is a total developed space of almost 1000 sqm with the main house
of 540 sqm composed of an entrance with a double living room and separate expansive dining
room, a modern kitchen opening onto a terrace, a fully equipped professional kitchen, a master
bedroom of 110 sqm with two bathrooms and dressing rooms. Four other bedrooms with
bathrooms and dressing rooms, and an office.
An independent guest house measuring 150 sqm including a 3 bedroom apartment with
bathroom, lounge, open kitchen, and dining area. Plus a full one-bedroom apartment for staff, a
PC security room, and a large individual laundry room.
The splendid garden is meticulously planted with both Mediterranean and tropical essences
embellished by an outdoor swimming pool of 17x8m along with 2 separate Koi fish ponds,
plenty of lush green grass with a shaded summer lounge, and an outdoor dining area with
barbecue and bar overlooking the sea making it ideal for entertaining family and friends.
Get fit and relax in the separate 136 sqm spa house set up with a fitness room, massage room,
dry sauna, steam room, and indoor pool.
For all you car enthusiasts, there is an underground garage of 155 sqm which can
accommodate 10 cars along with plenty more parking.
Overall, this safe and secure property investment currently has 9 bedrooms with the possibility
of adding a further two for a total of 11 bedrooms.
This estate has the best of both worlds. It’s a superb villa with a genuine sense of history that
has been reborn and reflects everything one imagines about France and Europe in general.
Best of all, it has that Cote d’Azur flair, yet gently combined with familiar aspects and designs
that would make someone from any other country around the world feel right at home.
Villa Gabrielle, being a turnkey property, means you have now found your ideal place in the sun
bringing consistent ease and inspiration to your life.
