The town of Louveciennes in the French department of Yvelines, 10 km from Paris between Versailles and Saint-Germain-en-Laye, is renowned for the green open spaces linked to its past and, generally speaking, for its numerous parks and woods.
Originally a small village of farmers growing fruit trees and vines, Louveciennes boomed in the 17th century following the construction of the “Machine de Marly”, a hydraulic system intended to take water from the Seine for watering the gardens of Marly castle and Versailles Park.
This property is then set in this historic and cultural context.
It has an excellent local road network with a slip road on to the A13 motorway just 2 km away, making it possible to reach Paris in less than 20 minutes. The train station, also 2 km away, has links to La-Défense and the French capital taking less than 30 minutes.
The coaching inn
This property can be reached via either of the two entrances to the Park, initially known as the “Grille Royale” estate. Once through the gates, the driveway leads to the main courtyard or terrace, paved in the same way as Versailles, where the entrance to the house is to be found. This stone and brick residence has undergone major renovation works carried out in keeping with the original building: facade enhanced with brick motifs, slate roof with numerous shed dormers.
A second building, right at the end of the paved driveway, houses a small flat spanning approx. 37 m². It comprises a large living room with an open-plan kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom.
A double, lock-up garage, with remote-controlled doors, adjoins this flat and is extended by a lean-to for two-wheeled vehicles.
The garden, laid out around the house, spans more than 1,100 m². It is planted with a huge variety of flowers and shrubs which bloom throughout the seasons. Jasmine, dogwood, roses, boxwood, hydrangeas, maple, rhododendron, peonies and magnolias flower all around the courtyard and along the alleyways, near the fountain and the wrought iron greenhouse.
This former coaching inn, with its facades attractively decorated with brick, its roofing framework overhanging the gables and its wooden balcony with its finely wrought wooden railings, has all the charm of local architecture. The plants set out in the garden surrounding it produce a mass of colours, whilst concealing nooks and crannies. The natural surroundings are extended by Marly Park and the grounds of the superb neighbouring properties. Interior renovation works have provided modern-day home comforts without betraying the house’s character.
