[The park] is simply a fantasy, to have an extraordinary garden, a pure amusement, and not at all a desire to mimic a nation which, when it makes a ‘natural’ garden, uses a roller on all the greens and spoils nature” (Jarrassé, Grammaire des Jardins Parisiens,
pg. 78). An interesting comment from the artist, but innovative in nature. Parc Monceau brought something new to the Parisian people, and it is this characteristic that Blue Ocean Luxury Homes will bring into the Lowcountry.
Design, craftsmanship, service, and responsibility are the four cornerstones of the foundation for every Arthur Rutenberg home. While these concepts are not unique and you can certainly find them with other builders, the Monceau model home exudes these qualities in its own light, as does every other structure with the ARH logo on it.
Just like the Parc Monceau, our Monceau model home is also known for its diverse charm. It is our own fantasy. Each room is its own unique garden, taking its inspirations from various sources, most especially the lovely Lowcountry.
While walking up to the home, you are immediately introduced to French-inspired themes; steep roof pitches, scattered arches, natural colorings, and the stone tower entry. The feeling lingers as you cross the threshold and into the home-centered foyer. Here, there are three instant lines of sight into various corners of the home, making the home feel much larger than it appears to be from the outside. The rear of the home has a much larger glass-to-wall ratio, bringing in a vast amount of natural light, with stunning sights of the pristine Fazio North Course.
Walking into the Monceau’s open floorplan, the Great Room, Kitchen, Casual Dining, Lanai, and Cabana all flow as one in a stunning array of uninterrupted space. A cathedral style vaulted ceiling spans from the fireplace in the Great Room to the exposed hood in the Kitchen. Here the designers brought in decorative cables, gaining their influence from the famous
Pinewood Estates at Bok Tower. These cables correlate well with the exposed beams lining the ceiling. To complete the room, a stone surround on the fireplace is mirrored across the room as the Kitchen backsplash.
As you continue to walk through the home, you will find many more unique features. The designers’ goals were to have the French Country meet the Lowcountry in a stunning, new fashion, but we invite you to be the true judge of that.
The Monceau model home’s Grand Opening is being held on the 24th of March. We invite everyone to come visit the Monceau and tour its gardens while enjoying drinks and foods. Immerse yourself in its culture and see how you feel when gazing upon its walls. Can you smell the Parisian lilies? Can you imagine the French Court, tailored in the 18th-century styles, making themselves merry on the Lanai with a bottle of 1787 Château Margaux, and pondering their next round of golf? Let your imagination soar and you will be delighted with your stay.
