WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
The simple adobe architecture and unique personality of this home is inspiring and refreshingly modern. Beautifully and thoughtfully decorated with art from around the world including the owner’s, there is a marvelous mix of casual elegance and contemporary living. We love the slide away walls that open the house up completely for spectacular views of the mountains, the bay and the village below.
Sheltered into beautifully imposing rock formations and with far off south facing views of the Corsican countryside and bay beyond, this house integrates thoroughly within the rugged landscape and manages to be both chic and rustic.
The clean modern structural lines and earth tones blend seamlessly into the hillside in this architectural gem surrounded by lovely gardens, oak, fig and olive groves.
The large living area slides away completely on two opposing sides creating a vast indoor outdoor space that allows nature in. The atypical layout is an inspired design and creates a fantastic open air habitat that is fresh and inviting.
With lightly polished concrete floors, floor length windows throughout and an inspired melange of carefully selected and curated decor and furnishings, this home has been lovingly composed inside and out. From the owner’s own art to the assortment of distinctive objet d’art, you will find a stunningly unique collection that is spirited and modern.
Each of the three uniquely designed and simple double bedrooms are peaceful and tranquil and open out to their own terrace entrance. The master bath has an earthy and industrial feel with simple concrete design and fixtures. There is another full bath so that the home can accommodate up to six.
The fully equipped kitchen has an eat in dining table or even better, you can whip up meals for up to ten at the back patio dining area complete with BBQ for great alfresco dining.
The vast wooden terrace in front features several seating areas affording stunning unobstructed views and is the ideal spot to relax and enjoy with friends and family.
Refined and elemental, there is a unique modern aesthetic about Pietra Nova that is natural and relaxed where you can come to appreciate the Corsican countryside in a chic and stylish getaway.
