    About this property

    • Originally built in 1931 for Louis Le Sidaner, son of the post-impressionist painter Henri Le Sidaner, tis villa takes inspiration from the plans of the Grasse architect Jean Bouchet, trained in Paris at Redon and Tournaire.

      The main idea of the architect was to construct the property on the upper part of the land, using the natural slope to create a rectangular villa on four levels. On the north side of the property, three superimposed rectilinear staircases form the origin of its name “La Ligne Droite” (“the straight line”).

      The carefully preserved architecture reflects the characteristics of the modern movement of the 1930, with particular attention given to the effects of the natural light, optimised by opening several of the rooms onto the garden and the sea.

      A magnificent roof terrace offers views towards the bay of Beaulieu and the villa Kerylos, as well as the bay of Villefranche and its old town.

      The property was awarded the 20th century heritage label on 28 November 2000, then listed as a historical monument on 10 December 2001. Such prestigious recognition makes this villa in Cap Ferrat unique, and contribute to the continuation of Belle Époque history on the French Riviera.

      The living area spans 595 sq m and is arranged over four levels. The main level is composed of a reception room, a dining room opening onto a south facing terrace, a further terrace to the west, and a kitchen.

      The lower level includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms and one shower room. The principal bedroom, together with three further bedrooms and an office, are situated on the upper levels. Profiting from all-day sunshine, the stunning grounds feature Mediterranean plants and flowers, and a swimming pool overlooking the sea.

      A caretaker's apartment with two bedrooms and several parking spaces complete this exceptional property. Presenting an excellent refurbishment opportunity, the property is ideal for a passionate architect wishing to restore "La Ligne Droite" to its erstwhile splendour.
