French Castle with Picasso Murals!
For the first time in over 50 years, one of the most exceptional properties in the South of France has been put on the market. For art collectors, incurable romantics or for anyone whose artistic hero is Picasso, Château de Castille in the hill town of Uzès, France above Marseilles is a French castle on almost five acres that was owned by Picasso’s friend, art collector Douglas Cooper. Due to their close friendship, Picasso sandblasted five massive murals onto the castle walls. Hard to imagine that when an original Pablo Picasso painting can fetch $100 million dollars, that the castle with five of his largest works is priced at just under $10 million. Accessed via a tree-lined drive, at 8,611 square feet, it has seven bedrooms, eight baths, three kitchens, two living and dining rooms, a separate house for staff, a formal knot garden and historic decorative garden objects. Five original Picassos with a 13th century French castle thrown in for good measure, is priced at $9,728,902.
