A 1947, fisherman’s cottage, with a panoramic sea view,
in Toulon’s Mitre district
Toulon, VAR provence-cote-dazur 83000 FR

Location

The Mitre district, bordering that of Mourillon and the port of Toulon, is reminiscent of a village, protruding into the sea. A much sought-after district, it is inhabited by a large number of sailors. The house is a 5-minute walk from the local shops as well as Mourillon and Mitre beaches, a 10-minute walk from Mourillon’s renowned daily market and 5 minutes by car from a large supermarket with a shopping mall. A TGV train station is 10 minutes away and Hyères airport 25 minutes away.

Description

This cottage was constructed in 1947 and is now divided into four separate sections. A simple building, it spans two levels under attic space and features straight openings. The section available for purchase is that which has the best view of the sea. Its panoramic vista, stretching from Notre-Dame-du-Mai to the Faron mountain, includes Saint-Mandrier and Six-Fours fort. A 22 m² courtyard and a 6 m² balcony dominate the harbour.

The house


Ground floor
A wicket gate opens directly off the street into a little, 22 m², west-facing, wooded courtyard, from where it is possible to see the harbour and the boats as they go to and fro. A flight of steps goes up to the entrance door to the main level, glazed to provide even more light. A lounge-dining room, opening into the kitchen via an archway, forms a room spanning approx. 46 m², made luminous by five windows. High ceilings enhance its airy feeling of spaciousness. A French window on the south side provides access to a 6 m² balcony, overlooking the sea. A south-facing bedroom, with a wardrobe, looks down on to the Mediterranean Sea; another bedroom has cupboards. There is parquet flooring throughout with the exception of the kitchen which is tiled.
Floor
A white-painted, single-flight, wooden stairway goes upstairs from the lounge. Two children’s bedrooms, with sloping ceilings and large roof dormers, have been laid out in the attic space. The roofing framework trusses are exposed and painted white, providing luminosity. In each bedroom, the section where the sloping ceiling is lowest has been transformed into cupboards, running the full width of the room. A shower room with a toilet has been installed between the two bedrooms. There is parquet flooring throughout. Two small, 3 m² attics are used for storage purposes.

Our opinion

This bright house, with its very wide view enhanced by the harbour, is in a particularly good location, 5 minutes from the shops and the beaches, where everything is within easy walking distance. Ideal for living in all year round or as a holiday home, it could also be used for a seasonal letting activity. The main level, with 2.88 m high ceilings in the living room and the two bedrooms, exudes a pleasant feeling of spaciousness and also has a balcony adjoining the lounge. The attic space is superbly laid out for children. A garage near to the house is an asset that cannot be ignored, even if it is usually easy to park near to the house.
