on the seashore with a 180° view over the Bay of Sanary
This west-facing house, part of a closed residential estate on the coast, has a 180° view looking out over the Bay of Sanary and stretching as far as the islets south of Marseille. The beach extends directly in front of the garden, the little port of Le-Brusc is within walking distance and the picturesque village of Sanary, renowned for its market, can be reached in 15 minutes by bike. For those wishing to travel further, Toulon TGV train station is 20 minutes’ drive away and Marseille international airport about an hour away.
Constructed in the 1960’s, this 3-storey house comprises a vast main flat, laid out over the ground and first floors, above a basement, spanning approx. 130 m², which could be converted. There is also a guest flat, spanning approx. 70 m² and flanking a small private garden, all laid out below the main house.
The house can be reached via the east section of the paved garden, shaded by a tall pine tree. The entrance hall is followed by an adjoining vast lounge, spanning almost 70 m². Paved with a light-coloured marble, it features a fireplace, also made of marble. Two large picture windows look out westwards over the sea, just a few metres away. A shelf unit integrated into the structure forms a separating wall with a dining room which is extended by a veranda that also looks out over the sea. Two doors communicate not only with the lounge, but also with the vast outdoor terrace. A kitchen, a small study and a toilet are also laid out on this level. The kitchen communicates with a vast garage, where a little stairway provides access to a vast basement. The light, plain decoration adds to the feeling of spaciousness.
The stairway steps, like all the floors on this level, are made of black marble. This floor is taken up by five bedrooms, three of which are laid out on the west side and open on to a vast terrace looking down on to the sea. Each one has its own little shower room. A smaller bedroom is right next to the stairway and the last one, laid out lengthways, is currently used as a bedroom for young children. The latter two rooms look out over the east section of the garden. A bathroom, a toilet and a dressing room are also to be found on this level.
The guest flat
Laid out below the house and spanning a surface area of approx. 70 m², this guest flat comprises a room, with lounge and dining room areas, a large bedroom, a kitchen which is also an entrance hall, as well as a shower room, with a toilet. It is paved throughout with white marble. Laid out in a U-shape, the flat delimits a little private courtyard, protected by a tall hedge.
This completely paved garden spans just under 1,000 m². It is laid out around the house, with a driveway that goes from the entrance gates to a wooded area, used as a garage, and to the entrance to the house on the east side. A narrower driveway goes around the house and alongside the swimming pool to the large terrace, an outdoor living room dominating the sea. A flight of steps goes from there down to the west side of the house, giving access to the guest flat’s small private garden, to the vast basement as well as to a wooden gate that opens directly on to the beach just a few metres away. The swimming pool is enclosed on three sides by hedges and, on the side from which the Mistral blows, by a wall with large picture windows, making it possible to use this area for a large part of the year.
Impossible to be nearer to the sea, the major asset of this vast house is its location, with an unobstructed view over the Bay of Sanary. The cycle path going along the seashore passes in front of the residential estate, whilst the Cap-Sicié mountain range and Janas Forest provide a wide variety of nearby hiking trails. This house could be a real haven for relaxing during the holidays or a permanent home, where residents live in harmony with the sea and the seasons all year round.
