France – Eight-bedroom Luxury Villa in Nice – €5,500,000
With 600m² of interior space and sitting on a large, 4,000m² plot, you wouldn’t believe that this stunning Hacienda-style eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom luxury villa in Alpes-Maritimes, Nice with far-reaching sea views is located close to the centre of town.
Despite its urban location, the house offers breathtaking views of the hills to the west and the sea and Cannes to the south west.
The colourful, mock-Roman interior with a sky painted on the main living space ceiling may be a bit exotic for some people’s tastes, but this makes it the perfect property for new buyers to move in and put their own stamp on it.
This coastal escape marketed by Leggett Immobilier, France for €5,5m, comes with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sauna, office and gym and much more.
Spain – Modern Architectural Design in Marbella – €25,000,000
This home takes the idea of contemporary design to the next level, with sleek architectural creativity and outlandish elements of interior design that just shouldn’t work but do. To see what we mean, check out the property listing where you will not only find stylish contemporary furniture gracing every room in the house but also more eccentric items, such as a giant two-storey giraffe, large gold and silver rocks stuck on the walls, a freestanding bath decorated with large silver balls and a full-sized pink ape in the dining room!!
This house has a futuristic ‘Tracy Island’ feel; you can almost believe the Thunderbirds are going to come into land with a part of the property, like the amazing double-decker swimming pool that spans two floors with a cascading waterfall running from one floor to the one below, opening up to house the Thunderbirds’ spacecraft.
Despite the eccentricities, if we had a spare €25,000,000, we can’t think of much better to spend our money on.
