Overlooking the bay of Cannes and the Esterel, in the heart of a secured domain between Mougins and Cannes, only a few kilometres from the beaches, a sumptuous Maitre's residence nestled in the heart of 19 hectares of forest (classified woodland), olive trees, vegetable garden and numerous Mediterranean species. 5 hectares of fully landscaped and fenced grounds surround the property and give it perfect privacy.
The 1,400 sqm castle, a former monastery built by the monks of the Lerins islands, was transformed into an aristocratic residence on the French Riviera by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1912. It was not until after the First World War that the castle was acquired by Baron de Wolverton and became his holiday home for several decades.
In the 1980s and 1990s many film stars and celebrities stayed there.
Very recently, the castle has been completely renovated and restored with high quality materials and now benefits from the latest technology and unrivalled comfort.
A 21×6 m swimming pool, a sumptuous pool house fully equipped with a 90 sqm summer lounge, a clay tennis court, a 130 m golf practice range with putt and chip area, a spa, a gym and a petanque court, a caretaker's house of about 170 sqm, a sheepfold to be restored (potential area of about 350 sqm), complete its many assets.
Property with a heartbeat. A must see.
Ideal family home.
