Villa Maeterlinck at Cap de Nice: indoor-outdoor living by Jean Nouvel

Villa Maeterlinck enjoys a prime location on the French Riviera, on the Cap de Nice, halfway between Nice and its international airport, and Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, the peninsula of billionaires.

Perfectly integrated into its landscape, it is set into the cliffside, in a green setting overlooking the Mediterranean.

Its ultra-modern glass architecture, its lengthy construction and its exposure provide exceptional natural light. Spread over 550 m², the villa designed by world-renowned architect Jean Nouvel offers a very high standard of living and an incomparable living environment.

Also located near the principality of Monaco, Villa Maeterlinck is a true jewel box of greenery and modernity at the end of the Cap de Nice, an exclusive property on the French Riviera.

A sharp interior of very high standing

No detail is left to chance. From the entrance through the fully vegetated roof, through the funicular, doubled by a staircase, which connects the two floors of the property.

The living room occupies the length of the house over 40 meters long, lined with windows opening onto the pool and the sea as far as the eye can see.

From the sea, the stainless steel and glass construction declines geometric lines on a base of magnificent exposed stones, the whole on a ground planted with Mediterranean essences. Enclosed by lush vegetation, the house is synonymous with discretion and privacy.

A careful choice of materials

All the living rooms, kitchen, suites and bathrooms have been designed with noble materials and are equipped with custom-made amenities.

Jean Nouvel designed the bathrooms in corian, which are complimented by Dornbracht elements.

The cabreuva parquet floor, a noble wood with deep red tones, blends brilliantly with the anthracite concrete accents and is reflected in the stainless steel profiles of the ceilings.


Towards an indoor-outdoor atmosphere

The main asset being the view, everything is done to enhance it and invite towards the outside. Thus the living room is embellished with three alcoves that lead to the terrace, as well as an outdoor patio of 140 m². As for the indoor-outdoor reception area, it represents more than 600 m².

A harmonious garden in its environment

This sumptuous property seduces with its 8600 m² of flowered gardens as well as its teak terraces, where takes place a magnificent outdoor infinity pool that offers a breathtaking panorama on the Grande Bleue. The mineral shapes of the pool contrast sharply with the crushed raspberry color of the outdoor furniture by Paola Lenti.

The garden and its intimate nooks and crannies offer the most beautiful of the Côte d'Azur's signature landscapes as well as spaces synonymous with relaxation.

Based on a concept by Gilles Clément and designed by François Navarro, the Mediterranean garden and its intimate nooks and crannies echo the landscaped roof on a metal and glass structure.

Le Cap de Nice

Nestled between Mount Boron, the Port and the sea, this exclusive setting is one of Nice's most prestigious neighborhoods thanks to its breathtaking views ranging from the Baie des Anges to Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.

You can also go there to enjoy the wild seaside of Coco Beach, or the menu of the mythical restaurant La Réserve, accessible by foot from the port of Nice. The coastal path leads to the Rade de Villefranche, on the other side of the Cape.

The Cap de Nice is dressed with magnificent properties in complete discretion, making it a prime location for a buyer looking for privacy and exclusivity.

Jean Nouvel on the French Riviera

Known worldwide for his museums with ever more innovative shapes with glass and steel structures, Jean Nouvel is building two buildings on the Côte d'Azur in Nice Ouest as part of the Meridia eco-district project.

In this axis that leads him to the Côte d'Azur, he designed two exceptional houses, the Villa Maeterlinck in Cap de Nice and the Villa Grand Cap in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.

These two exceptional villas, symbols of discretion and privacy by their very architecture, are offered for sale by the Private Desk of Côte d'Azur Sotheby's International Realty.
