Beautiful 170m2 4 bedroom villa in Villefranche-sur-Mer, panoramic sea view, scope to build pool and extend

This charming Provencal villa built in the 1950s is located in a small gated domain close to Col de Villefranche and is set over two levels, with the possibility to enlarge the property. It would also be possible to add an infinity swimming pool overlooking the Bay of Villefranche. You have a beautiful sea view from all the rooms in the house, a large terrace, and a terraced Mediterranean garden with flowers and bushes.

Situated inside a prestigious gated domain with several luxury villas, this house has its own private gate and driveway, with covered parking for one car just next to the house, and more cars can be parked on the private driveway or inside the secure domain. You also have a separate pedestrian gate with access to the street below.

Upon arriving at the house you have a pretty courtyard terrace with a sea view, and two sets of stairs leading down to the different levels of the garden. Enter the house and after the entrance hall you have a spacious bright living room, with an open fireplace, and large French doors leading out to the terrace with a panoramic sea view. There is another room with a small en-suite bathroom (WC and shower), offering a double aspect view of the sea and the snow-capped mountains in the distance. This room could be used as an office or even an extra bedroom. The fully equipped kitchen is to your right from the entrance hall, with a large window boasting a truly breathtaking sea view, and doors leading out to the terrace.

Follow the elegant staircase downstairs and you have 4 separate bedrooms to your right – all with direct access to the delightful garden (or future pool and with sea view. To your left there are two bathrooms and one separate WC, and a storage room. Without much work involved there is scope to create one en-suite bedroom on this floor, possibly even two.

Under the house you have two separate cellar spaces with plenty of space for storage.

The ambiance of this place is impossible to describe in photos – in the evening you can sit on the terrace enjoying a spectacular view over the Bay of Villefranche – which in the summer attracts some of the world’s most impressive superyachts and splendid firework displays – and in the mornings you’ll witness dreamy sunrises over the sea. Depending on the season you might be surrounded by typical sounds of the South of France – from frogs in the spring, to crickets in the summer.

The villa is in an excellent location in Villefranche-sur-Mer, at the end of a cul-de-sac in a very quiet neighbourhood. In just a few minutes you’ll be able to walk to amenities such as a small grocery store, a bakery, a pharmacy and a great local brasserie. The bus stop is a short walk from the property, and the walk down to Villefranche old town and the seafront/beach takes about 15-20 minutes. From the house you can also walk to the Parc du Mont Boron in less than 10 minutes – here you’ll find beautiful unspoilt nature and hidden forest trails, with exceptional views over the Bay of Villefranche and the city of Nice. You can be in Monaco or at the Nice airport in just 20 minutes.

This property would make a gorgeous holiday home or primary residence. It is also a great investment for those who would like to do holiday lets. With a bit of refreshment – mainly the bathrooms – it would make a lovely home as it is, or there is also scope to build a modern luxury villa on the land.
