This exceptional and unique property is situated in the picturesque village of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, right beside Monaco. Originally linked with the church, parts of the house date back almost a thousand years. Over the centuries, the house and garden has grown and changed with many alterations and additions. The previous owners were a famous decorator and a Vogue fashion photographer: Raymond Poteau and Henry Clarke.
Much of the current design is either original or based on their guiding principles. Raymond and Henry were very social and through Henry’s photography many famous people visited the house and gardens. Princess Grace once called the garden her favorite on the coast, a magical house unlike any other on the Riviera. The current owner has carefully refurbished this impressive property to a high standard while remaining true to its origins.
