This house is a vintage  property that has recently been completely renovated and restructured to become an ultra contemporary home.  However all its original 1950’s features have not totally disappeared but have been subtly and tastefully taken advantage of to cleverly fit into creating an original harmonious modern style.
 
The use of high quality materials such as wood, stone, steel and latest generation resins all contribute to highlight and show off the property at its best.
 
The black and white “Cube” that is the house is made wonderfully attractive by the harmony and balance created by the colors used and the deliberate Asian style that provides space as well as comfort.
 
Everything is minimal and refined, from the leather sofas, to the lacquered tables and side boards as well as precious fabrics.  There are some beautiful ornaments, interesting paintings and above all generous light flooding in everywhere through a series of glass doors all opening out onto a flowered garden and a south facing furnished terrace. A lap pool and its clear water stretches out invitingly at the foot of the terrace.
 
 
Villa Carolina is built on two levels:
 
Garden level:
 
Spacious flat area punctuated by large openings and a clever arrangement of screens allowing for the organization of internal spaces according to their usage.
 
At the center there is a comfortable living room, to the East a dining room and opening out to the west side you find an unusual though practical designer kitchen.

Nothing is left out in this very interesting kitchen which displays an array of forms and styles found even in the unusual light fittings. Close to the kitchen which hides behind a screen there is an entrance area widening into a kind of library/office, itself leading to a landing and a metal swan neck shaped flight of stairs reaching to the first floor and the bedrooms.
 
Close to this staircase there is a utility room and guest cloakroom.
 
First floor:
Wood floors throughout.
A corridor leads to:
 
A Master Bedroom – with a queen bed (1.60cm) bed and a large en suite bathroom, with fitted dressing room and toilet.
Lovely match between shades of color, light and materials. This space once more shows the same Asian inspiration of clean lines and sophistication.
 
A guest room with a  queen canopy bed (1.60cm) and soft tones of blues and browns.
 
Asecond guest room with a queen bed (1.60cm) and cheerful and bright colors great for teenagers or young adults
Both bedrooms share the same shower room.
Separate toilet on the first floor.
 
The large village of St Rémy is only a few minute walk away and that has the benefit of offering real village life without the use of a vehicle for those wanting to experience a new kind of freedom during their holidays.
 
This is a totally unique house that plays with the light and sunshine and will allow you to spend the happiest of holidays in the Alpilles.
