Deauville countryside mansion
Overlooking the wide valley of the Touques, along its eastern slope, on the heights of Pont-l’Évêque, hides this 15-hectare property with a spectacular panoramic view of the rolling countryside of the Pays d’Auge, with Deauville and the sea to the west.
After the gate, an alley leads to the doors of the house facing the east. The layout of the 336 m² of living space adopts a minimalist style with its simple, geometric, uncluttered elements, in the spirit of “Less is More” by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his keen interest in the interior-exterior relationship. The whole favors the concordance of forms with the functionality of the habitat. Past the vestibule, a circular floor invites you to discover the home. In line with the entrance, you can see the living room with its cathedral ceiling and its 180° breathtaking view on the landscape; large sliding picture windows open at midday onto the terrace; the dining room announces dinners in the golden light of the setting sun; the kitchen with central island is through, it allows you to enjoy the morning sun while contemplating the Japanese garden for breakfast; the west wing houses on the ground floor the parental suite, its bathroom and its dressing room. Two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, are located on the upper level which also includes a mezzanine and two rooms currently used as an office. At the foot of the estate, a charming half-timbered cottage has been built; it offers guests a warm atmosphere and a variety of landscaped views. A workshop adjoining the house, six horseboxes, and a swimming pool complete the set.
This place of balance reflects the fusion of imagination and nature. Each part presents the surprise of different plant architectures, the composition of which is inspired by topiary art and the creations of Pietro Porcinai. Play of shadows and lights, sunny spaces follow shady passages; Green lawns, boxwood tapestries, sculpture plants, myriads of flowers, large waters, the garden is connected to the landscape whose panoramas are framed by the foliage of the trees. The environment with its deep valleys with slopes covered with meadows and orchards, with wooded summits, is a true hymn to the landscapes of the Auge.
