Exceptional property, with historical monument status, offering spectacular views over the bays of Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Villefranche-sur-Mer. For sale by Savills Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.
Originally, the villa was built in 1931 for Louis Le Sidaner, son of the post-impressionist painter Henri Le Sidaner, based on the plans of the Grasse architect Jean Bouchet, trained in Paris at Redon and Tournaire.
The main theme of the architect was to construct the property on the upper part of the land, using the natural slope of the ground 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 maintaining the history of the Belle Époque of the French Riviera.

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.
Enjoying all-day sunshine, the stunning grounds feature Mediterranean plants and flowers, and a swimming pool overlooking the sea.
