The district of Fourqueux in Saint-Germain-en-Laye owes its names to the word “filcusas”, Latin for the ferns that covered the ground in the forests on this land in the Middle-Ages. Hunting grounds, then the property of Louis XIII who gave it to his doctor, Charles-Bouvard. In 1836, Victor-Hugo decided to live here. His daughter, Léopoldine, held her communion in the Sainte-Croix church, derived from the chapel founded by Queen Clotilde in the 7th century. Long fertile farmland, the town progressively developed, attracting many expatriates when the International Lycée was created in 1952.
This flat is entered via a communal courtyard. A stairway leading upstairs has been completely redesigned by the architect who rehabilitated these premises. Solid wooden steps, creative lighting and a graphite wall set the tone, with a welcoming atmosphere, the enhancement of the old and a touch of modernity. The stairway railings which delimit the first room form a sombre, discreet wooden bookshelf unit, the exotic wood handrail of which reflects the warm hues of the parquet flooring. The rooms, featuring the exposed roofing framework, are enhanced by the copious amounts of light flooding in through the double aspect windows. A partition, featuring a rectangular opening, delimits a colourful, built-in kitchen. Two steps go to a corridor which leads, on one side, to a bathroom, with a toilet, as well as to a laundry area. On the other side is a storeroom which could become a study. The corridor opens into a lounge, the floor of which is covered with old terracotta tiles. The spectacular, old, oak wood roofing framework probably dates from the 18th century. It is enhanced by the soberness of its white walls as well as the light flooding in through its windows and its skylight. Wide, wrought beams blend with the plain lines of a wide, wooden fireplace. Alcoves hewn in the wall provide splashes of bright colour. A little step goes to two bedrooms, with old terracotta floor tiles. Solid wood, built-in cupboards reflect modern lines. Both bedrooms have an unobstructed view.
These premises exude charm. The charm of its setting, in the peace and quiet in the middle of an old village. The charm of the old and modern materials used for building it. And lastly, the charm of the overall layout, the designer of which has created a convivial, luminous home, steeped in its history and enhanced with a delicate touch of modernity as regards the unexpectedly spacious rooms. There is no doubt that new owners will find a feeling of peace and well-being in such an unspoilt setting on the outskirts of Paris.
