Called ‘Valle Crisonis’ in the 12th century, the town of Vaucresson began to develop spurred on by Abbot Suger, a reformer of the Saint-Denis Abbey and adviser to King Louis VI. Situated seven kilometres to the west of Paris, the town is set in a pleasant valley surrounded by lush hills. This green town, and its twenty two hectares of unspoilt countryside, stands half way between Versailles and Saint-Cloud.
Paris is reached by regional Transilien train, line L in just twenty five minutes.
Numerous schools are close by: a nursery school at the end of the road, secondary and high schools as well as a sports centre just four minutes by foot.

The house

The house built at the end of 19th century, in Victorian style, the age of architectural romanticism, is set in a garden of 855 m2. A number of features characterise it. They are both structural and ornamental. The conservatory topped by a smaller corbelled structure is reminiscent of the Elizabethan era. Semi-circular arches in the conservatory and pointed arches in the corbelling are associated with architectural orders in fashion in England in the Middle Ages. Attention is drawn to the window with semi-circular arches facing the conservatory and separated from it by a simple rectangular window: where does the creativity lie? With the semi-circular arched window or with the pointed arched windows? A touch of absurd is stylistically essential here. What is more, the multi-coloured stained glass windows of the structure above the conservatory highlight the medieval references of the Victorian style. The roof has flat tiles, the pediment and facades are salmon pink with white architectural outline features that complete the overall effect of the property beautifully.


Ground floor
The main entrance is via a small vestibule incorporating a staircase for the upper floors. The floor is covered with black and white cement tiles in a checkerboard pattern. A decorative cast iron radiator adds to the stylistic harmony of the house. On the garden side of the property, access to the house is through the conservatory, with its coloured ceiling matching the facade and its exposed beams. A double sitting room with chevron parquet flooring, marble fireplace, typical Vésinet stained glass window and ceiling mouldings, just some of the late 19th century architectural features present here. Then, a dining room with an open kitchen and two windows that illuminate the room perfectly look out on to the garden. A laundry room, a small guest bedroom and a toilet complete this ground floor.
First floor
A wooden winding staircase leads up to four bedrooms, each of which looks on to the garden.
A master bedroom of 16m2 with a stained-glass bow window reflects the style that Guimard used in Vésinet for his own villa “La Hublotière”. An adjoining bathroom with Klein blue tiles and a large window. Three other spacious and bright bedrooms as well as a shower room and a toilet complete this level.

The garden
On a 935m2 plot of land, the garden occupies 855m2, both with lush vegetation. Three old oak trees are registered as “remarkable trees”.
Cherry trees and other fruit trees have been planted in this bucolic surroundings.
A closed garage accommodates two cars.
The house is detached and has no vis-a-vis.

Our opinion

Stylish and well balanced. There is a touch of extravagance thanks to the Victorian style architecture and a sort of rebalancing with the surrounding nature in the garden: just the right combination to make it a very nice home to live in. This undisturbed colourful gem is to be found very close to Paris.
