A beautifully presented French provencal style home close to all local amenities within a pleasant and quiet setting.
The house was built in 1988 and is 280m (square metres) with overall land totalling approximately 4,610m (square metres). The property is situated at the top of a hill with no neighbours overlooking, although, there are neighbours nearby so the property does not feel remote. The house is approximately 160m above sea level with outstanding views of mountainous terrain and views of Pegomas village and Grasse.
The property is situated on the border of Mouans-Sartoux and Pegomas commune and backs on to the forest of Mouans-Sartoux which has stables and horse riding available, mountain bike trails and many locals use the forest to pursue other leisure activities. It is also near to the village of Mouans-Sartoux as well as the commune of Mougins but costs a lot less per square metre than those areas despite being so close.
There is also potential for development as the property’s overall land mass consists of 2 plots of land where one of the plot’s could be sold on and separated from the existing property. We have had quotes from local land experts (Geometre Expert Foncier) where details have been given on separating the land. This does still require planning permission to be completed but the opportunity is there and if approved then the value of the land and property would be increased dramatically.
There is within walking distance of the property a chemist, bakery, post office, cafe, restaurant etc.. . There are 8 big and modern supermarkets within 15 minutes drive with the nearest supermarket only 5 minutes drive away. There are several French schools within 6 minutes drive as well as an international school (EIB) in Pegomas.
The property is in a peaceful setting with clean air and less pollution due to minimal traffic flow which tends to be locals visiting the nearby forest or commuting to and from work. The nearest main village is Pegomas which is an upcoming area with new developments being built.
Nice airport is 20 minutes drive away, the nearest beach, in between Cannes and Mandelieu, is approximately 8 minutes drive away. Monaco is 45 minutes drive and San Remo in Italy can be reached in one hour. There is a local connecting road to the A8 called the Penetrante and this provides fast and easy access to Grasse hospital (10 minutes drive) or Cannes and the A8 (12 minutes). The A8 is the main motorway which goes along the south-eastern part of France and connects to places such as Nice, St.Tropez, Aix-en-Provence, Toulon etc.. .
The house has a large entrance area with hallway, a French style kitchen, dining/living room with fireplace, 5 separate bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with 2 separate WC. There is also a 1 bedroom self-contained apartment next door to the property with its own entrance and this apartment could be easily connected to the main house if required.
The house has stunning views of the surrounding mountainside no matter what time of year with the sun shining on to the property from approximately 09:30 hours up until 17:00 hours during winter months and 22:00 hours during the height of summer.
There is an infinity pool only a few short steps from the house which is easy to maintain and is approximately 72m (cubic metres) (12m x 6m in size). There is also a pool house nearby which could be converted into something bigger, as there is a small plot of land directly behind which was once used as a vegetable patch but could now be used to extend and create a small guest house, gym, sauna, office etc… .
There is also a very large basement which covers the footprint of the house with parking inside the garage for 2 average size cars but this would still leave two small rooms and a hallway for additional storage.
The property is heated by underfloor heating which is controlled by an electric Technibel pump and the running water is heated by an oil fuel boiler. The running costs are approximately €1,200 per year for the oil fuel and approximately €200 per month for the electricity.
There is a large driveway leading up to the property with enough parking for up to 10 cars.
The property has mains drainage, hidden garden sprinkler system for the grass areas, taps connected to the mains water for watering or hoses and these are dotted about the main parts of the garden, a shower tap for the pool, a kids swing and slide with a specialist safety rubber surface, along with a wooden play house and a wooden lockable shed for additional garden storage.
Overall if you are looking for a French home to live or use as a secondary home this house is a perfect opportunity to buy in an upcoming area close to everything required for modern day to day living.
