About this property
Villa La Vague offers a rare opportunity to own a big, traditional family house, within walking distance of the famous Monte Carlo Casino Gardens.
The home’s views are protected, so Villa La Vague will always enjoy unobstructed panoramas of the still blue sea.
Usually these rules can also make it difficult for buyers to make additions to their homes. But in this property’s case, planning permission has been granted to transform the four-story, four-bedroom house into a six-story, six-bedroom modern mansion, topped with a rooftop swimming pool. (The listing price includes the property only. The buyer will pay extra for the additions, which are optional.)
The photographs displayed are CGI’s of the proposed future villa.
The un-modernized villa measures roughly 513 square metres. The proposed plans will bring the home to more than 700 square metres, with six bedrooms and staff accommodations. There will be closed to 220 square metres of terrace space.
The existing villa’s architecture is typical of that found along the Riviera, with tall, narrow shuttered French windows opening onto balconies. It is however “a little tired,” and is needed a renovation.
The house currently has few modern amenities, though it does include private parking for two or three vehicles on the lower ground floor (a rarity in Monaco), as well as a laundry room and an elevator.
The proposed plans call for state-of-the-art audio and visual technology throughout the villa, in addition to a spa, sauna, steam room and gym on the lower ground floor. There would be a rooftop terrace with a swimming pool and Jacuzzi.
The house sits on Rue des Giroflées, a private street next to Avenue Princesse Grâce, and its beach, Plage du Larvotto, which is 10 minutes from Casino Gardens. Monaco is small enough that residents can easily wander from one end to the other, and visit its bars, restaurants, high-end shops and hotels.
