Valbonne is a charming village, 20 minutes’ drive from the coast and dating from Roman times, with plenty of beautiful architecture. It is also the location for our current project – work is still in progress with completion due this summer.

In October 2018 we were approached by American clients wishing to renovate a house they had recently purchased. The couple live in California and had been looking for a property in France for more than a year, to spend time on holiday with their family. They finally found the house of their dreams – a beautiful terracotta red fronted villa with 10,000 square metres of garden.

In total, the property is 340 m2 in dimension and whilst the size and land space is suitable for the client’s needs, the internal layout is not. The building dates from the 1980s and is now in need of updating.

We have been closely working with a US based architect who has redesigned the interiors, necessitating the removal of all of the walls and repositioning of the window spaces. We will be removing the old PVCu windows and replacing with stylish and durable aluminium frames with triple glazing.

The revised plans have created a large master bedroom, together with grand and luxurious walk-in wardrobes for both husband and wife. In addition, there are two guest rooms both with ensuite bathrooms.

Downstairs, the couple have opted for open plan living with a spacious living room area, kitchen and a large double fronted gas fire.

The project is gradually coming together and we intend to complete the works by the end of June 2019 including the laying of underfloor heating and cooling. Below you will see photographs of the project prior to the work starting last autumn.
