Apartments for sale at Nice Garibaldi
On leaving the port of Nice and walking up rue Cassini, you come across Place Garibaldi that was recently renovated and given back to pedestrians. There, the renown arcade house café and restaurant terraces: the square has become a must-see where to have a drink or a meal outdoors. The Théâtre National de Nice and the MAMAC (Modern and Contemporary Art Museum) adjoin Place Garibaldi to the north and the cinema Mercury entrance is under the south arcade. The square is also the way into the Old Town and its typical alleys and to the pleasant Promenade du Paillon leading to Place Masséna. There, you are in a dynamic and family area with numerous shops and public services, good transport links and a tramway line 1 station (line 2 is being built currently).
Authenticity and charm of Place Garibaldi area
Buying an apartment in that booming area is an opportunity not to be missed. In the authentic Niçois buildings, (there are very few recent ones) you will find different surfaces: one-bedroom flats bordering the old town as well as family ones or uncommon duplex nested in unexpected spots. It is by no means rare to push open a carriage gate and find yourself disoriented in an inner courtyard with small trees, completely hidden from the street. There you will enjoy the benefit of a garden in town, an oasis of peacefulness close to the shops and services, a rare priviledge.
Typical Niçois flat or contemporary renovation
If you choose the beauty of the Niçois style, there will be local red tiles on the floors, fine mouldings on the high ceilings and louver shutters on the windows. The flats have beautiful surfaces with large bedrooms. As the area is a favourite among young people, it is also possible to find contemporary designed lofts. Solid oak floors, American kitchen opening onto the reception room, they are refurbished to the highest standards and answer all the needs of comfort: air conditioning (very useful from May onwards), splendid roof terrace maybe. Other amenities not to be overlooked when buying property in the Garibaldi area are the parking spaces in particular.
Making an investment
Place du Pin entirely restored, rue Bonaparte and its new small businesses, adjacent small streets refurbished… In this area in total and constant renovation, you may make profitable real estate investment. When buying an apartment as is and turning it into a contemporary one, you will own a property much sought after in this part of Nice. And you will get much added value in case you sell.
