Le mas de Picasso à Mougins

Le mas de Picasso à Mougins

Quant à la maison en elle même, il y a entre il y a entre 1.700 et 2.400 m2 habitables, mais elle souffre d'un environnement un peu bruyant, avec une servitude de passage pour les promeneurs.

Dans un premier temps, en juin, la mise à prix avait été fixée à 18,36 millions d'euros, avant que Rayo Withanage, cet investisseur de nationalité néo-zélandaise, ne fasse une surenchère de 10% dans les 10 jours, portant ainsi la mise à prix à 20,196 millions d'euros (30 millions $). Un feuilleton immobilierAvant Pablo Picasso, cette maison a appartenu à la famille Guinness. Le peintre y vécut, pratiquement reclus, jusqu'à son décès en 1973; sa veuve y vivra jusqu'à son suicide en 1986.

Un acquéreur sri-lankais n'ayant jamais finalisé son projet, la banque de l'actuel propriétaire néerlandais, défaillant, entend bien recouvrer ses fonds. Il avait rebaptisé la demeure "l'Antre du Minotaure", l'avait agrandie et dotée de nombreux aménagements sophistiqués - piscine, ascenseur, climatisation, spa, garages, tennis - avant que des difficultés financières ne stoppent les travaux. Des visites ont eu lieu fin septembre mais impossible de savoir qui enchérira ce jeudi.

La villa de Mougins (Alpes-Maritimes), dans laquelle Picasso a passé les dernières années de sa vie, a été vendue aux enchères, hier matin, devant le tribunal de grande instance de Grasse. Rayo Withanage est l'associé majoritaire de la société Scepter Partners. Des baies vitrées ont été ajoutées pour faire entrer davantage de lumière.

Picasso n'y a toutefois laissé aucune oeuvre. Ce réseau spécialiste des propriétés de prestige et d'exception avait été approché il y a trois ans pour revendre le bien, alors estimé entre 20 et 25 millions d'euros dans son état de finition inachevé. Ce financier aurait l'intention de faire de la propriété une résidence secondaire.
