This beautiful Belle Epoque villa is only one kilometre from the legendary Croisette in Cannes and once belonged to Estée Lauder, founder of the international cosmetics company “Estée Lauder”. The exclusive residential neighbourhood of La Californie in Cannes is characterised by picturesque parks, magnificent villas and extraordinary properties.
The villa, which was built in 1920, is well appointed with ultramodern furnishings and offers breathtaking panoramic views of the sea. It has 10 rooms, 6 bathrooms, a guest apartment as well as a swimming pool, and a total area of 450 m².
In memoriam: Estée Lauder
The distinctive design of Estée Lauder’s cosmetic line is graced with a concise, Mediterranean turquoise blue. The turquoise-blue walls in the staircase add an exciting, colourful accent. The current owner of the villa is also honouring her famous predecessor by dedicating a room to her memory, containing works of art, memorabilia and photographs documenting her life and success. These precious belongings can also be purchased.
Lauder came from a Hungarian-Austrian family, who immigrated to the US and achieved great success. Shortly after she founded her company in 1946, innovative marketing activities brought Lauder fame: she had handed out free samples for advertising purposes in trendy hotels and well frequented department stores – a first in the history of the cosmetics industry. When she passed away in 2004, Estée Lauder was one of the wealthiest women in the world. Shortly before her death, she was awarded the Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honour in the USA.
The Cote d’Azur real estate market is one of the most attractive markets in the Mediterranean region. The region between Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, Cap d’Antibes and Cannes is one of the most popular regions in the entire world. Furthermore, the real estate market with its prestigious properties is one of the most stable markets in terms of value retention.
