Nestling on Corniche Kennedy and facing the Mediterranean, this 19th-C. private mansion offers a panoramic view of the bay of Marseille stretching from Île Gaby to Île Maire via the Château d'If. This remarkable property was built by a ship-owner of Marseille so that he could watch his ships sailing off to sea. The mansion's generous volumes of approx. 460 sqm bask in natural light. The property is entered directly from the Corniche: a long corridor hollowed out of the rock leads to a lift to the ground floor, giving a 'Hollywood movie atmosphere'. A path also leads to the residence's front door via a stairway. The mansion bears witness to the rich past of the Corniche, blending the charm of yesteryear with today's comfort and convenience, all benefiting from a very enviable location with unimpeded view of the sea and horizon. The ground floor consists of a vast reception room of 120 sqm with a hearth, study and fitted kitchen. The outdoor area is comprised of a large teak terrace plus a roof-terrace above the elevator building, a summer kitchen with wood-burner oven, a swimming pool and jacuzzi with dark blue tiles, and a caretaker's apartment. A staircase from the lounge leads to a real labyrinth of generous volumes comprising the sleeping accommodation. A large master suite benefits from a balcony overlooking the sea, a walk-in closet, bathroom with shower and balneo bathtub. This floor is completed by a second suite giving onto a small courtyard at the rear of the residence with a balcony, walk-in closet and bathroom, and three more bedrooms enjoying beautiful sea views, one with a shower room, and a bathroom. One reaches the tower by means of a ladder to find a charming small bedroom, a real beacon guiding one's gaze to the immense expanse of sea that accompanies life here on an everyday basis. To the rear of the mansion, a flight of stairs leads to a charming self-contained studio with terrace. Facing south-west, the property benefits from rare appointments in this neighbourhood, a stunning view, the beach 50 metres away, a 4-car garage with access from the Corniche, a lift, large shed, wood store, a tower awaiting development, and a huge area beneath the main terrace, all in grounds of 1,143 sqm with exotic vegetation. This private mansion recalls the sumptuousness of the 'follies of the Corniche', built in an iconic era which saw the construction of the Valmer and Gaby Deslys villas. For fans of history and unique settings for large receptions…
