One of the greatest properties in the French Riviera is on the market for the first time in 56 years.
The Chateau de la Croix des Gardes was featured in the classic 1955 Hitchcock film To Catch a Thief. Now, you can own a piece of cinematic history, because the chateau has hit the market for the first time in 56 years, listed with Sotheby as ‘Price Upon Request’. According to the New York Times, the property is looking at offers in the $57-$113 million range.
The 13-bedroom, 13,000 square-foot, 3-story house was designed in the Belle Epoque style, and features formal French Gardens, a winter garden with an indoor waterfall, and an infinity pool. It sits on 25 acres atop a hill with panoramic views of Canne and the Mediterranean. It also includes a guesthouse, a Turkish lodge, and an orangery.
So if you have multiple millions lying around, and are a huge fan of either the South of France, or Alfred Hitchcock, you should probably make an offer immediately. A place with a pedigree like this probably won’t last long.via ]
