Cap Bénat, Bormes-les-Mimosas, France
236 m² – design André Lefèvre-Devaux – architecture moderne(1972)
SOLD : Remarkable architecture created in 1972 by the famous architect André Lefèvre-Devaux, located in the secure domain of Cap Benat.
Its achievements are characterized by an optimal insertion in the site, its rooting, the alliance of raw materials (the stone of Bormes, the concrete and the wood), a reassuring architectural thickness, the perspectives, the alternation of solids and voids and garden roofs.
The villa develops an area of approximately 236 m² on two levels and a roof garden, on a plot of land of 2837 m².
The upper level hosts the entrance, the living room, the dining room, the kitchen, an en-suite bedroom with bathroom, dressing room and small living room, as well as a laundry room. The lower level has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which can be converted into a 2-bedroom suite and the technical room with the boiler room. A cellar and a garage complete the set.
Cradled by the sound of the waves, the villa benefits from magnificent landscaped grounds by renowned landscape designer Jean Mus, with private access to the sea, punctuated by terraces set in the rock and a stone path plunging down to the Wed.
The spaces of the villa are largely open to the sea and enjoy a panoramic view of the entire bay and the Golden Islands. Its terraced roof garden blends into the surrounding vegetation, making the house almost imperceptible in the landscape.
Solidly rooted in its land, the villa gives an impression of monolithic solidity and durability desired by André Lefèvre-Devaux. Its architectural design expresses the massive nature of the materials used – local stone and concrete. The architect has carried out a real work here of setting up the building on the ground, respecting the hard rocks that have been cleared as the earthwork progresses.
It is possible to enlarge the house and build a swimming pool. Possibility of mooring a boat a few meters away in the private port of the residence.
This residence is unique for its remarkable architecture, its location and its landscape quality.
A true architectural masterpiece and manifesto of integration in a heavenly site…
