You'll want to take a look inside this tunning Belle Epoch inspired mansion located in the South of France and once owned by Sir Sean Connery. The sprawling property is built into a hillside that overlooks the sea in Cap de Nice and was once the home of Sir Sean Connery, who is best known for playing James Bond in the film franchise of the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s. The lavish home is up for sale and priced at US$34 million.
The mansion exudes classical French architectural design with wisteria climbing over its facade and a cascade of landscaped gardens that stretch toward the sea. The newly renovated gardens are now lined in colorful plantings and trace a path down to the sea road, where you can reach the nearby beaches. There is so much to love about this home, from its scenic location to its stunning exterior and interior. The hoe is almost 11,000 square feet with two pools, a patio that overlooks the French Riviera, a full-sized gym, sauna, and landscaped grounds to name a few.
The stunning home is contemporary inside, with a fitness complex that is built underneath the main house. The cavernous, sun-drenched underbelly of the mansion includes a gym and an indoor swimming pool that overlooks the Mediterranean. The pool level of the home also includes a dining area and the main kitchen. The home sits on a 1.24-acre property that encompasses a second salt-water swimming pool outside and two independent guest houses. The main house, like the rest of the stunning property, is a mix of old and new, with period details, to include rich, wide-plank wood flooring, and contemporary floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and an elevator. There is a separate family room with a kitchenette that sits on the main level and serves as a home office. The home has five bedrooms that spread across the mansion’s five levels, including a master suite with a private balcony and two bathroom suites.
The home is located in an area just outside of Nice, France, and just a short drive from Monaco, which is a magnet for the rich and famous. One of the amazing things about the French Riviera is the sense of celebrity as it is a favorite haunt of royal families as well as people such as Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso, Grace Kelly, and Sir Sean Connery. Both Sir Elton John, and Tina Turner have also owned homes nearby.
The home is located in the French Riviera, which is on the southeast coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, at the foot of the Alps. Nice is the second-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast and it is the second-largest city in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region after Marseille. It is approximately 13 kilometers from the principality of Monaco and 30 kilometers from the French-Italian border. Monaco has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate with strong maritime influences and a humid subtropical climate. As a result, it has balmy warm, dry summers and mild, rainy winters.
