Gorgeous and full of character is this Provencal 3 storey, 4 bedroom farmhouse with separate studio, previously home to renowned Italian artist Giuliano Mancini, ideally located near the heart of Saint Paul de Vence.
This unique Mas Provencal oozes charm and warmth with its spacious open plan living areas, fully fitted and equipped kitchen, and four sizeable double-bedroom suites, of which one is a totally independent studio.
Throughout there is a tasteful mixture of typical Mediterranean materials, from local stone, hardwood and Italian terra cotta flooring to glazed tiles from Fayence.
Access to the house is on the first floor, taking a small staircase that goes up from the path, where there is space to park two cars. Residents also benefit from free parking passes in the town. These few steps lead to a beautiful terrace which bypasses a good part of the house. Above and to the left is a small independent studio, with its shaded terrace, accessible from its private staircase.
From the main terrace, the entrance to the house opens into a large living and dining area with its traditional open, bright and fully equipped kitchen. From the generous dining room, access to the living room with its open fireplace, perfect for reading or a game of chess, is via two small steps. On the right, the living room opens onto a beautiful small terrace of approximately 15m² with a view of the rooftops and the hills as a backdrop.
Once again inside and from the dining room, the corridor on the left leads to the first bedroom, with its hardwood floors and vibrant colours reminiscent of Provence. A staircase descends to the lower level.
Facing the main entrance, the solid oak door opens onto a staircase leading up to the spacious master suite, with its large open terrace of around 30m². There are panoramic views of the hills on the left, the chapel and the ramparts of the historic centre, the umbrella pines and finally the valley on the right. At the end of this terrace, a wrought iron spiral staircase leads to the main terrace.
By taking this last staircase, the eyes are attracted by its decorated niches, with subtle lighting, and on the left is the third bedroom, with its "earth" colours and its many storage possibilities. However, it is this reception hall with its stone columns, vaulted ceiling and 65m² of total surface area that impresses. The room is very bright, thanks to large bay windows facing south. It is currently divided into three distinct spaces: a library / reading / office space on the left and in the centre.
It is literally within 200m of the medieval fortress's main northern gate into the beautiful historical centre, where there are cobbled streets lined with wonderful restaurants, art galleries and boutiques steeped in history.
For some years the lower level of the property served as a sort of informal clubhouse to the Saint Paul art community, using its unique, vaulted living room / bar and where a wonderfully warm atmosphere continues to reign.
This lovely property is 20 minutes to Nice airport and the Allianz Riviera stadium, 35 minutes to Cannes and Antibes, 45 minutes to Monaco, the Esterel national park and the Italian border, 60 minutes to Ventimiglia and the nearest ski resort, 2 hours to the Verdon Gorge, France's very own "Grand Canyon".
Of the 70+ courses in the region, golf enthusiasts will particularly enjoy Cannes-Mougins (30 minutes), Saint Donat (40 minutes), Monaco (45 minutes), Esterel and Terre Blanche (both 1 hour), and Taulane (75 minutes).
