Location: Mouans-Sartoux, France

Price: €2,450,000 ($2,884,000)

Like a home straight out of the Flintstones’ town of Bedrock is this sculptural residence in Mouans-Sartoux, a small town in the Provence region of France. Designed by self-taught French architect Jacques Couëlle in 1962, the home is one of five “landscape houses” that he created, as well as a grand example of the architecture-sculpture movement.

The maison integrates itself into its environment with its organic curves and natural textures while opening outward to the Bay of Cannes and the Esterel Massif range. These motifs are found inside as well, where the 231-square-meter (or 2,486 square feet) interiors are characterized by rough stone, terra-cotta floors, ceramic, iron, and glass walls, doors made from wood and glass, and copper detailing throughout.

There are five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a large open-plan living area with a rounded fireplace and sliding glass doors that offer indoor-outdoor connections to the pooled terrace. A bronze mural by Constantine Andreou conceals two doors, one leading to the kitchen and the other to the cellar.

Just 15 minutes from Cannes, this exceptional, heritage-listed property is offered at 2.45 million euros, or $2.88 million, by Espaces Atypique. Have a look.
