Bouc-Bel-Air (13)


250 sqm
4 bedrooms

Plot : 2 000 sqm


A Seventies villa in the Aix region

Cette maison aux lignes modernistes a été construite en 1973 et a conservé l’ensemble de ses aménagements d’époque d’un grand raffinement, qui font la part belle à l’artisanat, de l’art verrier à la ferronnerie d’art.

Set on a 2,000 m² plot, the house spans 250 m² over two levels.On the ground floor, there is an entrance hall illuminated by coloured Murano glass, a beautiful L-shaped living area with lounge and dining room, separated by a sculptural concrete fireplace with double hearth, and a fitted kitchen with pantry. The living room opens onto vast wooden terraces sheltered by a planted pergola, with a stone summer dining room and stone barbecue area.

An impressive spiral staircase in brown lacquered metal leads to the first floor, which includes the sleeping area. This comprises 4 bedrooms, including a 26 m² master suite with a 21 m² terrace and bathroom in pink marble from Portugal and stained glass windows. The three other bedrooms, one of which has a balcony, share a shower room with walk-in shower, which was refurbished in 2020. One of the bedrooms has a surface area of 30 m² and features a piece of bespoke furniture designed by Mélanie Fleury, who created a mobile structure comprising a bed, dressing area and storage units.

The house benefits from a vast landscaped garden planted with trees and shrubs and featuring a superb free-form swimming pool with an original concrete diving board. The property is surrounded by high hedges that protect the privacy of the residents.

A 33 m² garage with storage room completes the property.Planning permission is currently pending for the creation of a separate 30 m² flat.

The house is ideally located in Bouc Bel Air, a charming hilltop commune between Marseille and Aix-en-Provence, famous for its views of Mont Sainte-Victoire and Mont Ventoux.Bouc bel Air is 15 minutes from Aix en Provence, with fast motorway access. The TGV train station and Marseille Provence international airport are 15 minutes away.

Synthesis of the arts

The original structure of the house, dating from 1973, has a carefully crafted geometric composition, made up of cubic modules alternating smooth rendering and stone cladding, enlivened by offsets. One of the cantilevered volumes overhangs the entrance, protecting it from the elements. A contemporary extension was added to the complex in 2001, blending in perfectly with the existing building while offering greater living comfort.

Designed as a synthesis of the arts, the building has retained all its highly refined original materials and details, such as the decorative terracotta cladding around the entrance, the abstract Murano glass windows running the full height of the rear façade, the brown and pink marble, the geometric tiling in the bathrooms and kitchen…

The spectacular metal staircase serving the first floor is made up of 15 sheets of steel arranged in a spiral, each folded twice to form the base resting on the floor, the tread and the handrail in the same piece of metal.
