A gorgeous modern house, Deauville

A gorgeous modern house

Both the architect and the owners went for open spaces, such as the first floor study, which connects to the dinning room.

Inspired by Le Corbusier, this 800-sq m countryside architect house is just10min from Deauville. Built in1993 between the highway and the seafront, mostly on a single floor, it favours open spaces (with a few nooks thrown in for good measure). Striving for "architectural happiness", it provides warmth and fluidity. "One really feels at home here. This is a harmonious family house," stresses Barnes Deauville, where light and nature play a big part, with bay windows and a beautiful Asian-style wooden sunroom. The property features a triple living room, a home theatre, a pool table and a glass taproom. On the first floor, a study overlooks the open-plan kitchen below. In addition to the six bedrooms, including three suites, with individual bathrooms, the house comes with a splendid indoor pool, hammam, a sauna, a jacuzzi, a sunbed, a fully-equipped fitness room, a wine cellar and two garages. The estate features a 4.8-ha park with a Japanese garden. Proposed price: 3,200,000 euros
