Modernist1

Had some money left to you? Won the Lottery? or just plain rich anyway? If either of those applies to you, check out this 1960s-designed modernist villa in the south of France.

Designed in 1961 by Claude Parent, one of France’s most revered modernist architects, it mixes raw concrete and glass walls for the structure, throwing in a stunning view of the French Riviera from its location at the summit of Cap d’Antibes. Yes, perfect for the jet setter in all of us.

When you tire of the panoramic views of both the Bay of Antibes and Golfe-Juan, there's plenty of living space over its four floors, including four bedrooms and terraces for each level.

The property was listed in France in 1989, which gives you an idea if its originality. We suspect it also means a hefty asking price too. The seller has it down as 'POA' which probably means only those with a bulging bank account need view.
