Typical of the middle-class houses from the “Belle Epoque”, it brings to mind the eclecticism of the second half of the 19th century. This robust, pointed stone residence is topped with a T-shaped, slate hip roof with zinc ridge crests and finials. The roof features four, two-sloped roof dormers with triangular pediments. Stone steps on the facade lead up to the main entrance, a double door protected by a wrought iron, rounded glass canopy. On one of the gable walls, a back door sheltered by a three-sloped canopy leads directly into the kitchen from a car parking area. Both the straight and triangular stone window framing is rendered. A long balcony complete with a wooden balustrade runs along the rear wall above a tiled terrace. A small, matching balcony crowns the bow window. The railings in front of the windows are of wrought iron with wooden hand rails.
It spans approx. 400 m² (4,305 sq ft) of living space. The original decorative features have been preserved: mouldings, rosettes, cornices, panelling, period marble fireplaces, etc. Modern-day home comforts: contemporary kitchen, double-glazing, door with interphone and electric lock systems, automatic garage door, borehole for watering, lighting for the parklands, alarm, etc. Recent, mains-gas-fired, condensing boiler (De Dietrich).
The floors are covered with old polychrome ceramic flagstones, tiles or herringbone pattern, oak parquet flooring. The large entrance hall leads left to the kitchen; right to a toilet and a dressing room; straight on to three adjoining rooms, a dining room (on the kitchen side) and two lounges opening on to the terrace and the parklands. A wide, pitch pine wood, two quarter turn stairway with wrought railings, leads upstairs. A door, under the stairway, leads down into the basement.
There is carpeted parquet flooring throughout. A large landing room leads to five bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room and a toilet.
There is carpeted parquet flooring throughout. A large landing room leads to four bedrooms, a toilet with a wash-hand basin and a toilet.
Spanning the total surface area of the house, the basement includes miscellaneous rooms and hall areas, a machine room and a large wine cellar.
An independent garage with space for three cars (2 under cover and 1 closed garage).
2,600 m² (0.64 acres) of well-laid out parklands, featuring bushes and shrubs and planted with various species of trees: oak, maple, horse chestnut, plane and lime with rose bushes and cyclamens in the undergrowth. At the back of the building, accessed from the lounge, is a tiled terrace (approx. 50 m² / 538 sq ft) that extends into a stairway leading down to the south-facing lawn and parklands. This immaculately kept property has walls on the road side and fencing on the parklands side.
This robust, stone, middle-class home is set behind its high stone walls. Spacious and comfortable, the residence is situated in a quiet, residential district of a small, preserved town of art, between the provinces and the Greater Paris area. Its south-facing aspect lets copious amounts of light into the reception rooms and the bedrooms facing the parklands.
The house is immaculately kept throughout and is soberly but elegantly decorated such that the new owners will be able to move in straightaway without carrying out any works.
This is, most probably, one of the most beautiful properties in the neighbourhood.
