Domaine proche Deauville
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 panorama over the rolling countryside of the Pays d’Auge, with Deauville and the sea. to the west.
After the gate, an alley leads to the gates of the house facing the east. The layout of the 336 m² of living space adopts a minimalist style with its simple, geometric, refined elements, in the “Less is More” spirit of the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his pronounced 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 house. In line with the entrance, the living room with its cathedral ceiling and its breathtaking 180° view of the landscape are revealed; large sliding bay windows open to the south on 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 at breakfast; the west wing houses the master suite, bathroom and dressing room on the ground floor. Two bedrooms, each with bathroom, are on the upper level which also includes a mezzanine and two rooms currently used as an office convertible into bedrooms. At the foot of the estate, a charming half-timbered cottage has been built; it offers guests a warm atmosphere and a variety of scenic views. A workshop adjoining the house, six boxes for horses, 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, whose composition is inspired by topiary art and the creations of Pietro Porcinai. Games of shadows and lights, the sunny spaces follow the shaded passages; green lawns, boxwood tapestries, plant sculptures, myriads of flowers, fountains, the garden is connected to the landscape whose panoramas appear 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 real hymn to the Auge landscapes.
