BUYING A VILLA ON THE MONT BORON, AN EXCEPTIONAL PURCHASE
The Mont Boron is one of the three hills, with Cimiez and Le Château that give Nice its identity. The properties for sale on this dominant position east of the town offer incredible real estate opportunities. The boulevard du Mont Boron winds up that eminence from Riquier area to the boulevard Maeterlinck. On more than three kilometres, this street is lined with impressive houses, apartment buildings and villas. The mix of architecture styles gives the stroll an eclectic vision. One of the most famous, Le Château de la Tour du Mont Boron, is at number 15 of the boulevard. Its architecture stand out with its clover plan giving a triple tower topped with a circular turret. Today it has been split into two apartments and offers an environment beyond compare. Another Mont Boron main road is the boulevard Carnot. It leaves the port to reach the Cap de Nice. It is bordered with a number of “Belle Epoque” villas, but also a building may come as a surprise like “La Maison Alsacienne” built in 1925 and still topped with a fake stork watching over its nest!
Discreet and quiet villas
Yet, the most beautiful residences for sale go unnoticed as they are nestling in the heart of discreet dead ends with old-fashioned names: Ernestine, Henriette or Germaine. One should venture a little to discover villas hidden behind climbing wisteria and jasmine hedges. One may even discover a palm tree stroking a façade ornamented with balusters. Walking up the Route Forestière that runs along the preserved park of the Mont Boron, one discovers magnificent residences that combine both peace out of traffic roads and breath taking sea view.
Owing to its overlooking location, its architecture history and the splendour of its environment, the Mont Boron is highly valued. Buying a villa there is a guarantee of privileged living environment and sound investment.
