It could be villain’s lair from a James Bond movie, it could be a movie set. But above all, this 1960s modernist property in Les Vigneaux, Hautes-Alpes, Southeastern France could be your next home.
Details on this place are pretty much non-existent. We’re guessing the era and we suspect there’s an architect’s name attached to it. But if there is, it’s not an easy one to find. However, we do have some amazing imagery of a house seemingly untouched for decades.
It shows a house that echoes the craggy mountain scenery around it, with huge windows to take in the Alpine views, substantial balconies to take nib the air and an interior that mixes stone, concrete and wood to great effect. Lots of open space inside too. This is party central. Talking if inside, looks like there are substantial galleries too, along with an interesting staircase, equally stylish fittings and interior design pieces that would keep a 20th century art and design dealer trading for years.
Yet despite all that originality, this does look like a house that’s lived in. Everything meticulously maintained, the plants are alive and well, a laptop is open on the desk. This isn’t just a relic. This is a period house offering modern-day living space.
That space is down as 350 sq. metres, including six bedrooms and five bathrooms. So plenty of room for a posse of your friends to hang out for a while without getting under your feet. It’s also said to be in green space near tennis facilities, ski stations and hiking routes. So ideal for outdoor types.
If you want to live here, the price is €995,000, which works out at around £842,000.
