Water Cleaning Station Conversion
We continue sharing stories about the building conversions. This conversion is quite different from the others. It’s not a church or a tower. We’ve seen a few of those lately. But it’s a water cleaning station on French Riviera. The now beautiful 5,400 square feet home was once a 1910 water cleaning station that was abandoned in the 70′s.
The station was bought in 1996 by Philippe Tondeur who turned it into an amazing living space with the designer Bernadette Jacques. The house is surrounded by breathtaking views of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat and features its own heated swimming pool. Another pool is set in a green lawn and a gravel covered ground with a living tree that provides shade for an outdoor lounging area.
The house also includes a 700 square foot guest house with one bedroom and one bathroom. There is also a big hot tub and a 5 car garage. Interior features preserved parts of the water cleaning station’s machinery.
There are overall three bedrooms and three bathrooms in the house. One of the bedrooms has a view of the outdoors. The bathroom are finished with stone and tiles and feature sleek modern furniture.
The house features a wooden terrace near the pool wth parts that indicate the building’s former purpose. The views of sea that open from the swimming pool terrace are simply amazing.
House’s interior is clean and modern with smooth wooden floors and white color scheme. Elements of the water station are seen here and there and the kitchen is made in contemporary style with stainless steel surfaces and modern gadgets. In one of the bedrooms the bed is divided from the bathroom with a rippled wall that provides two entrances to the bathroom behind it. The house is now on sale.
