Former Beauty Billionaire Estee Lauder’s French Villa Lists For $9 Million

May 10, 2022 Share

This six-bedroom villa belonging to former Estee Lauder has a Mediterranean view and is the ideal place for a summertime getaway and entertaining guests.

Estee Lauder was an American entrepreneur and co-creator of a cosmetics corporate empire, Estée Lauder Companies (EL). In its ninth decade, the company that bears her name is a major manufacturer and marketer of quality skincare, makeup, fragrance, and hair care products. More than 25 brands are sold in approximately 150 countries, booking more than $16 billion in annual revenues.

During her time, she oversaw the creation of five different brands — Aramis, Clinique, Prescriptives, Lab Series and Origins — and always insisted that the Company’s products be made from the highest-quality ingredients. 

The world has changed dramatically since Estée Lauder created her brand in 1946. Estée Lauder founded a billion-dollar cosmetics, skincare, and perfume empire. But the core values she embodied are more relevant and more inspiring to women of all generations than ever before. 

Now her former French Villa is looking for a new home. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea is a dreamy villa in the tony La Californie section. Previously once owned by cosmetics pioneer Estee Lauder as her summer house, the home lists on the market for over $9 million.

The elegant property sits on lush grounds of 1,280 square metres and has undergone a “tasteful renovation to create a comfortable and modern family home”.

According to Knight Frank’s listing, breathtaking views of the Mediterranean can be enjoyed from each property level.

From a significant entrance corridor with a grand staircase, the six-bedroom house opens to a few reception rooms, a visitor cloakroom, six loos and an eating room with a terrace space. Additionally, there may be a back and a high-end, absolutely outfitted kitchen.

“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it”

The Mediterranean coastline is home to endlessly beautiful landscapes. After all, tourists constantly flock here to pursue azure waters, rocky hillsides and ancient architecture. 

Why not get the best of both views with a villa with access to the crystal blue waters at every angle of the house?
