on 5,400 m² of terraced land near to Bandol
An hour from Marseille airport and 45 minutes from that of Hyères, 20 minutes from Toulon TGV train station, 50 minutes from Marseille and 55 minutes from Aix-en-Provence. Less than 10 minutes from the motorway slip roads at Bandol and less than 15 minutes from the sea and the town centre. This house dominates the sea and the hillsides with a 180° view providing an airy sensation.
This south-facing house, with plain architecture, was robustly constructed on the rock in 2000. Two separate sections could be united to span a total of 290 m² of living space: 225 m² for the two main levels and 64 m² for a garden-level flat.
It is possible to park under a carport in front of the main entrance door. A few steps go up to the main level which opens on to a terrace, dominating the sea. A flight of stone steps goes down to a 5x9 m swimming pool, filtered using chlorine or salt.
Adjoining the entrance hall is a small, raised study, followed by the main room that opens into a kitchen, enhanced with a stone sink, and an area given over to a billiards’ table. This main room features a large fireplace, with an interesting, attractively curved chimney breast in place of the classical trumeau. The ceiling is 4.4 m high. An adjoining bedroom, with a shower room, is extended by a back kitchen.
There are terracotta floor tiles and exposed ceiling beams throughout the house.
A stairway goes upstairs from the main room.
A south-facing bedroom, with a shower room and a dressing room area, provides access to a terrace, with a view of the sea. Steps go down from this terrace to the swimming pool. Another two bedrooms, one with a mezzanine, share a bathroom. A dressing room and a toilet are separate.
A 64 m² flat, all on a level, opens on to the garden. It comprises a living room, with an open plan kitchen, and a bedroom, with a shower room and a dressing room. There is enough space to be able to easily integrate a stairway or a lift going up to the main level. The main room opens on to a terrace, with a verdant arbour, via picture windows. A fountain takes pride of place.
Group of buildings
These buildings span a total of approx. 100 m². They include an open, 27 m² carport, intended for 2 cars, adjoining the front door. Another 44 m² covered area is 50 m away.
A stone pool-house, with a built-in barbecue and a summer kitchen, stands near to the 5x9 m swimming pool, constructed below the main terrace. An area hewn out of the rock on the garden level, with a door and an old-fashioned window with a wooden lintel, is used for storage purposes. A 9 m² workshop completes the property.
The view over the sea and the hillsides immediately stands out. There are no neighbours that could make a stay here less than pleasurable. Also worthy of note are the noble materials used to construct this house, still in pristine condition. The self-contained flat, all on a level, is undeniably an additional asset. Less than 15 minutes from the motorway, the sea and the town centre, this house would be ideal as a holiday home or even a permanent residence as it is near to all daily necessities such as shops, medical facilities, schools, etc.
