Welcome to one of Grace Nicols Homes’ most striking contemporary villas – its design is unapologetically futuristic, with a jutting flat-topped roof and sharp angles, contrasting sharply with the serene and relaxing setting. The facilities cater for family and friends: with a saltwater swimming pool, basketball court, table tennis and spacious curated gardens, Villa Annabelle is the ideal holiday destination, and only a 10mins drive from Montpellier’s historical centre.
On the villa’s south side, you will find the villa’s large swimming pool with its deckchairs and sun loungers, which is located directly below the wooden terrace. This terrace consists of an illuminated dining area which accommodates 10 people, as well as a corner lounge area with sofas and a coffee table. A barbecue area is at guests’ disposal (with a Weber barbecue, traditional barbecue, and plancha), and makes for a convivial affair on those sultry summer evenings by the poolside.
The large garden and the multitude of flowers and olive trees it contains is framed with stunning dry-stone walls. At the back of the garden, young and old can enjoy a space dedicated to basketball, as well as a ping-pong table.
The Villa Annabelle is spread over three floors : the staircase from the pool leads to the middle floor. From this point, a spacious entrance offers two sleeping areas symmetrically to the left and right, and a staircase leads to the upper and lower levels.
The middle floor’s fully equipped kitchen is extremely well lit thanks to the sliding bay-windows giving access to the terrace, and its central island makes cooking meals for both the indoor and outdoor dining areas a breeze. It offers an array of top-of-the-range facilities (fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, kettle, filter coffee machine, and Phillips Expresso coffee machine with coffee grinder). This kitchen shares an open plan with the large living room, its second indoor dining area, and its lounge area with two sofas and several armchairs facing a fireplace and a piano. Again, the combination of this room’s refined furniture and huge windows offering sweeping views of the villa’s grounds, results in an undeniable feeling of “inside outside” living.
The two middle floor suites each comprise a double bedroom with large closets, an office area, and an en-suite shower room with toilet. The upper floor is entirely dedicated to the large parental suite, which is accessed by a floating staircase. There you will find an office area, a master bedroom with a walk-through dressing-room, as well as a bathroom (shower and bath) which has access to a roof terrace with stunning views and even a glimpse of the sea.
Finally, the lower floor of the house offers a further two bedrooms, each with two twin beds (which can form double beds) and fitted wardrobes. They share a shower room, with two sinks and a toilet. They also share a small living room with a kitchen (fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine, kettle, toaster, oven, hob, coffee machine). Both bedrooms open onto the garden’s north and eastern sides, and have access to a covered terrace with its table tennis table.
Two cats live at the property and will need you care and attention.
The Villa Annabelle is located in the Aiguelongue district just north of Montpellier. The area is renowned for its green landscapes, clean air, and verdant biodiversity, making it the perfect getaway for those looking to relax in a lush natural setting, whilst a stone’s throw from Montpellier’s historical centre.
As it is located in such close proximity to civilisation – with local shops including a bakery, pharmacy and grocery store, deli, newsagent, bank, and restaurants all being a short walk away – the use of the on-site parking will be reserved for excusions further afield: with restaurants a 5mins drive, Montpellier centre 10mins, the beaches and Airport are 20mins.
Local attractions include The Pic Saint Loup, as its breath-taking landscapes capture whole swathes of the South Coast; or the small traditional medieval villages nearby (and all the charming features that come with them) : open-air markets, vineyards offering wine-tasting, and plenty of cultural discoveries.
As a certain someone might say: “From Aiguelongue with Love”…
