Truly a magnificent home, this property in the South of France oozes sophistication, and lavish opulence. From the outset we are treated to an extraordinary glimpse into a home, incorporating all the trappings and trimmings of a modern masterpiece. Elements of tradition are seen in the terracotta roof tiles, and these are wonderfully contrasted with angular contemporary construction that imparts a sense of majesty and admiration. The outdoor poolside area is beautifully appointed with banana lounges, sofas, and a good helping of deluxe 5-star ambience.

Looking from the outdoor balcony terrace to the coast below, we are treated to a striking view. The balcony terrace itself is delightfully furnished with a practical and tasteful dining table, and separate lounge area. The white colour scheme and render of the external walls communicates freshness, and works superbly with the seaside atmosphere. In addition, the huge tiles create the feeling of sand, and reiterate the coastal nonchalance, with a good helping of extravagance.

When enjoying yourself in such lavish and luxurious surrounds, it makes perfect sense to ensure your dining space reflects the style and beauty of the landscape. This wonderful image gives us a rare view into the modern and well-appointed kitchen and dining room. The colour scheme is white, light, and bright, while the contrasting timber tones and French grey dining chairs are interposed within the space and create interest. The two standout features of this domestic area are the statement light fittings. Hanging through the stairwell space is a huge drop crystal chandelier that injects enormous appeal. Similarly, poised above the glass dining table, the cylindrical disc shaped fitting adds brilliance, and contemporary charm.

What would a coastal mansion be without a comfortable and sumptuous cinema room? This space is perfect for your movie watching needs—the huge wall mounted television is situated in front of a crushed velvet rug, modular sofa, ensconced in multiple throw cushions and a plush rug. In addition to the media space, this room also encompasses a bar, perfect for a pre-film cocktail or beverage.

5-star bathroom

No tour of a stylishly refurbished and decorated home would be complete without a peek into the bathroom. For many, the bathroom is a space for relaxation, refreshment, and renewal—this bathroom offers all that in a tastefully sophisticated package. The oversized tiled shower is the icing on the aesthetic cake and provides a huge space to wash oneself. In addition the colour scheme is light and bright, with contrasting timber elements such as the vanity and door.
