You can shake or stir it in this manor house full of amenity suitable for 007 in the south of France.
Indeed, the sprawling property, built on a hill overlooking the sea at the Cap de Nice, was once the residence of Sir Sean Connery best known for playing James Bond in the film franchise of the 1960s, 70s and 80s, according to the broker Knight Frank, who started marketing this lavish home this week for 30 million euros ($ 34 million).
From the outside, the Belle Époque-inspired mansion exudes classic French architecture, with wisteria climbing its facade and a cascade of landscaped gardens stretching toward the sea, according to the list. The recently renovated gardens are now bordered by colorful plantations and trace a path to the sea route, where one can reach the neighboring beaches.
The house takes a contemporary twist inside, with a fitness complex built under the main house. The cavernous and sunny belly includes a gym and an indoor pool that overlooks the Mediterranean. The pool level also includes a dining area and the main kitchen.
The 1.24-acre lot includes a second outdoor saltwater pool and two independent guesthouses.
The main house, like the rest of the property, is a mix of old and new, with period details such as rich, wide-planked parquet floors, contemporary floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an elevator.
A separate family room with its own kitchenette is located on the main level and is now used as a home office.
There are five bedrooms spread over the five levels of the mansion, including a master suite with private balcony and two bathrooms.
Connery, 89, no longer owns the property, but the neighborhood, just outside of Nice and a short drive from Monaco, remains a magnet for the wealthy and famous, according to the listing agent , Edward de Mallet Morgan, with broker Knight Frank.
