          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1991

          About the owner: Jean-Paul and Melinda have owned the house since 1991. For many years they ran the popular 'Jean-Paul's Bistro' from this location. Since closing the restaurant, they have fully renovated the house for luxury living. They are now living in France for a good part of each year, dividing their time between Blue Hill and Villefranche sur Mer.

          Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill:
          The location was selected for unique setting, ocean-front views in the middle of our small, charming village.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We have been able to create an oasis in the village, with magnificent gardens and views, right in the center of everything. Each bedroom suite has complete privacy with its own modern bathroom, luxury linens, beautiful antique furniture and paintings from renowned artists. The house offers two living rooms, a large modern kitchen and formal dining room, along with a screened porch.
