A splendid 271m² family apartment with five bedrooms on the third floor of a
19th-century edifice with a lift, nestled between the towns of Le Chesnay and Versailles
Versailles, YVELINES paris 78000 FR


The edifice lies in the town of Le Chesnay. It stands on a broad, sloping road that separates the towns of Versailles and Le Chesnay. This street takes you to the Saint-Antoine plateau, which is known for its burrstone houses built in the early 19th century. From different train stations in Versailles, you can reach central Paris in 30 to 40 minutes. On foot, you can get to the nearest station, Versailles-Rive-Droite, in just a few minutes from the property. The prestigious secondary school Lycée Saint-Jean-Hulst, which is on the same street as the property, is roughly one hundred metres away. And the shopping street Rue de la Paroisse with its many shops and market square is only a 15-minute walk away.


The building dates back to 1888. It has a ground floor, a first floor, a second floor, a third floor and a loft. It is built of stone and coated with pale rendering. A slate roof crowns the edifice. On the street side, the facade is made up of three sections, the central one of which is crowned with a roof segment that resembles a pediment. This central section protrudes slightly and has two balconies that are similar to one another, aligned with each other on the second and third floors. The facade is adorned with a wealth of architectural articulation: the window surrounds, stringcourses and cornice of modillions have mouldings and the entablatures, friezes and corbels are finely sculpted. Lines that mark the facade horizontally and vertically and that display almost perfect symmetry are offset with the decorative curves of the faces and foliage that bring each level to life. On the garden side, the elevation is also divided into three parts. This rear side is decorated more plainly, with simpler mouldings forming a stringcourse and cornice. It is crowned with the same kind of slate roof segment resembling a pediment. The building’s entrance is a monumental wooden door that is painted, glazed and crowned with an arched fanlight. This door leads into a large hallway that runs all the way from the front of the edifice to the rear side with a paved floor, built-in pilasters, sculpted friezes and a high ceiling that is vaulted and coffered. The front and rear elevations are punctuated with tall windows that fill the interior with natural light and are fitted with louvred shutters of painted wood. The apartment lies on the third floor. You can reach it via a lift. It offers a floor area of around 271m². This fine dwelling could be the home of a large family, yet it could also host guests very comfortably. A spacious entrance hall with a ceiling embellished with mouldings takes you to three connecting rooms: a lounge, a dining room and a library. Taken together, these four spaces offer a floor area of over 100m². Solid wood strip flooring and beautiful chevron parquet extend across the rooms. Like the entrance hall, all the reception rooms have ceilings with mouldings. These ceilings are over three metres high. Several rooms feature sculpted marble fireplaces that are pale grey. Tall double-leaf windows bathe the rooms in natural light. French windows lead from the lounge out onto a large balcony that you can enjoy in the summer and that extends the reception space. The apartment is not at all overlooked. The different rooms offer different views: you can look out at the Palace of Versailles and its firework displays, the Saint-Antoine plateau, and other delightful districts of Versailles. The remarkable sense of spaciousness in this dwelling is majestic. The rest of the apartment is taken up by two tiled bathrooms, two tiled shower rooms, and four big bedrooms with large windows and high ceilings adorned with mouldings. The kitchen floor is adorned with large tiles. This kitchen adjoins a pantry and a utility and linen room. A spacious garden extends behind the edifice. In this garden, there is an outhouse with a bicycle shelter that is available to all the inhabitants of the commonhold building. Lastly, the property includes a private cellar with a floor area of around 40m².
