A single-storey house on 0.5 ha of land, with woods and an olive grove,
to the south of Toulon harbour, with a view of the sea and just 100 m from the water
Toulon, VAR provence-cote-dazur 83200 FR

Location

This house stands in the privileged and protected district of Tamaris, densely wooded and just 100 m from the sea between Saint-Mandrier and Sanary. The seaside resort of Tamaris-sur-mer was created at the end of the 19th century by Michel-Pacha in the aim of recreating the atmosphere of the banks of the Bosphoros where he had made his fortune, with oriental-style houses. The shuttle boat that crosses the harbour to Toulon is but a 10-minute walk, making it possible to go to the market, to get to the train station or to see an evening show at the opera. 15 minutes from the motorway, 25 minutes from the TGV train station, 45 minutes from Hyères airport and 75 minutes from that of Marseille, 5 minutes from the shops.

Description

The gently-sloping, 5,400 m² grounds were originally part of a property constructed by Michel-Pacha at the end of the 19th century. This plot was separated in the 1980’s, making it possible to build a single-storey house, dominating the olive grove and protected from the Mistral winds by the woods. Three small outbuildings are dotted around the garden.

The house

Facing south-east, with a view of the sea from the lounge and three bedrooms, this house was constructed in 1981 and spans approx. 147 m² of living space. The house is entered on the north-east side, not far from a separate storeroom-laundry room. The door, protected by a canopy opens into an entrance hall adjoining a lounge-dining room, with a fireplace and two French windows, giving access to the south-east facing terrace. The kitchen faces south. A corridor providing access to a separate toilet also leads to a bedroom, with a shower room, open on to the outside. On the south-east side, a separate toilet and three bedrooms, two of which have access to a balcony, with steps going down to the garden. On the north side are a dressing room and a shower room. The single-sloping ceilings feature exposed beams and exude a very pleasant feeling of spaciousness. Floors are covered with travertine tiles, exotic wood or cement tiles.

The grounds

The garden, about half of which has French EBC (Espace Boisé Classé - listed wooded area) classification, is partially composed of terracing. The southern section is a little wood, with tall trees. The east side is planted with an olive grove, comprising 30 olive-producing trees. On the lower level of the garden, an old ornamental pool, with carp and papyrus, could be transformed into a swimming pool, although another area nearer to the house is also suitable. A stone cabin is ideal for storage purposes and houses the borehole pumping system intended for an inexpensive automatic watering system. The garden has six different water supply points. Two other sheds, made of wood, are used for storing garden tools. Another area is also laid out under the terrace. A well, with a wash-house near to the house, has been covered with a large shelter, exuding old-fashioned charm and supported on wooden pillars. Said shelter could become a summer eating area. The privileged seaside climate ensures rich and varied Mediterranean vegetation.

Our opinion

The location is exceptional, in the peace and quiet, in a district experiencing a complete revival and ever gaining in value. Pedestrian streets and a cycle path are planned to provide access to Les-Sablettes beach. Landing stages will accommodate water sports clubs. It will also be possible to go and try the seafood from the mussel and oyster farms. Laid out all on one level to make life easy, this house has just been restored on the inside, leaving but the outside awaiting renovation (rendering to be smoothed, shutters to be painted and a few windows to be changed). A possible 20 m² extension could create a fifth bedroom or a garage. The large, tranquil grounds, able to take a swimming pool, are in a privileged setting, completely out of sight and very near to the sea. They are made even rarer by their surface area and their pastoral atmosphere, with an olive grove, a wood and birdsong so near to the sea and the town.
