a large, 1900, Anglo-Norman house and its 3,900 m² of parklands
10 km from Paris, in the French department of Yvelines, the town of Marly-le-Roi, bordered by Marly Forest and Park, is renowned for its quality of life. This property is in a quiet, sought-after street. The proximity of renowned schools in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, including the Lycée International, is another invaluable asset. Marly train station, just a few minutes’ walk away, has links to La-Défense and Paris-Saint-Lazare taking less than 30 minutes.
The entrance door, reached via a porch, provides access to a vestibule, large reception areas, a kitchen with an eating area, a cloakroom, a separate toilet and a stairway leading to the other levels.
The basement, reached via the entrance hall, comprises a boiler room, two storage rooms and a wine cellar.
Outside, a caretaker’s cottage, spanning approx. 25 m², is built in a similar style to the main house. At the end of the property is a closed garage able to take three vehicles.
The main house
The front door, reached via the few steps and wooden structure of the porch, opens into a large vestibule. The hall area provides access to the reception rooms, including a large lounge, with strip pattern parquet flooring and large, wooden-framed, small-paned, picture windows that look out over the large garden, and a dining room leading out on to a terrace. Both these rooms intercommunicate and form a reception area spanning more than 90 m². Each is enhanced and dominated by a superb fireplace.
A toilet and a separate kitchen, big enough to take an eating area, complete the ground floor. The fully fitted kitchen looks outside via two large picture windows.
The stairway, housed in the entrance hall, leads to a hall area which provides access to two bedrooms, a games room, a bathroom and a separate toilet. Another door opens into the master suite which comprises a wonderful bedroom, extended by a wooden balcony, a large study, a bathroom, a shower room and a dressing room. There is strip pattern oak wood parquet flooring throughout all the upper floors.
The multiple roofs delimit some particularly interesting areas and rooms, divided between two large bedrooms and a smaller one with parquet flooring, a shower room and a separate toilet.
A boiler room houses an oil-fired boiler in very good working order, two storage rooms and a wine cellar hewn into the ground.
The annex house
The caretaker’s cottage, harmoniously reflecting a similar style to the main residence, spans approx. 25 m². It comprises a lounge, a bedroom, a kitchen and a shower room. With all modern-day home comforts, it is ideal for accommodating a couple of caretakers or gardeners or even a young au-pair.
The grounds, spanning more than 3,900 m², are enclosed by walls and hedges. They are planted with numerous varieties of trees and shrubs. Virginia creeper, rose bushes, saritea and ivy alternately climb along the main, south-facing facade. On the west side, an oak tree over a hundred years old, a lime tree of the same age and several other trees provide this large garden with some shade. Also dotted around at the gardener’s will are several fruit trees, including cherry, plum, hazelnut and apple.
A veranda on the east side of the house is an ideal space for storing garden tools and furniture as well as fragile plants.
This haughty, outstandingly bright and rationally laid out residence dates from 1900. It abounds in nooks and crannies as well as clearly delimited rooms, ensuring that there is no lack of privacy. With its 3,900 m² of parklands, planted with trees hundreds of years old, its completely unoverlooked terrace and the proximity of the royal park, it is set in renowned surroundings, sought-after for their quality of life. This property is in the town of Marly-le-Roi, on the westerly outskirts of Paris, near to the La-Défense business district, and will therefore appeal to all potential buyers seeking to combine living in the country with professional or educational activities in dynamic, attractive surroundings.
