Colombes, HAUTS-DE-SEINE paris 92700 FR

Location

Colombes is a thousand-year-old town between the French departments of Hauts-de-Seine and Val-d'Oise. In the 19th century, historian Julien-de-Gaulle described it in the following manner: “Between Asnières and Argenteuil, two and a half leagues to the north-west of Paris, is the pretty village of Colombes, in the midst of a peninsula formed by the meanders of the Seine. It has architecture reminiscent of the 12th century. [...] It is another of those delightful places populated with country houses, where Paris’ wealthy inhabitants take refuge during clement weather.” Today, the town is becoming more and more attractive courtesy of its many sports, cultural and educational facilities, its green open spaces as well as its proximity to the French capital (four SNCF train stations, two tram lines). Saint-Lazare train station is but a 15-minute train ride away. This dynamic should be reinforced with the build-up to the 2024 Olympic Games. Yves-du-Manoir stadium is, in fact, to host the field hockey events. Major investment is expected throughout the town.

Description

This house stands in a little, one-way street in the town centre of Colombes. The district is renowned for the quality of its way of life, its tranquillity and its local shops. The gateway opens on to a rose bush-lined driveway, at the end of which is the house. Its white facade rises up in the middle of the garden where numerous trees have been planted over the years. An unoverlooked patio has also been added to the outside. This spacious house spans three levels. The basement is laid out around a wine cellar. The ground floor comprises a vast lounge, a dining room as well as a kitchen with an eating area. The first floor is taken up by two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. A further three bedrooms are on a half-floor, as is a last bathroom. The top floor, the attic, can be reached via a retractable ladder.

The house

This house, dating from the 1960’s, was constructed using quality materials.


Ground floor
The entrance hall leads, left, to a lounge where a fireplace, with a stone mantel and a brick hearth, takes pride of place. An unusual feature of this room is its two stained glass windows. The floor is laid with marble tiles, featuring inlaid decoration. A dining room, adjoining the lounge, is illuminated via several double, basket-handle-arched, lattice-glazed doors, opening directly on to the patio. This outside area, paved with large stone slabs, is completely unoverlooked and ideal for taking meals outside in fine weather. Straight on in the entrance hall is the kitchen, with its eating area. Further on, the garage can be reached directly from the house. A stone stairway with scrolled, wrought iron railings, goes upstairs.
Half-story
The landing for the first half-floor is enhanced with several storage areas and provides access to the residence’s first two bedrooms. The first, 24 m² bedroom has its own marble bathroom, with a shower. Here, two wide windows open on to the terrace and the garden. The second bedroom on this level has a view over the patio below and also has its own private shower room.
Half-story
A flight of steps goes up to a second half-floor where there are another three bedrooms, a bathroom, a separate toilet and cupboards. A retractable ladder leads to a vast attic under the roofing framework.
The garden
An attractive, flower-lined driveway, bordered with rose bushes, leads to a sunny, 625 m² garden where nothing can disturb the owners’ tranquillity. It could also be used for parking several cars.

Our opinion

Impressionist painters such as Claude-Monet, Gustave-Caillebotte and Berthe-Morisot long roamed the streets of Colombes in order to catch a thousand reflections of Parisian countryside on canvas. A century later, the peaceful, residential streets of this affluent town, in Paris’ first “couronne” or inner area, still appears to exude a rural, pastoral atmosphere. This discreet, elegant house is just a stone’s throw from the town centre. Its tall facade, its haughty openings and its fine railings bring 19th century mansion houses to mind. This house, laid out around a pleasant outdoor patio, is a combination of outstanding, bright, flexible rooms. The shady garden, out of sight of onlookers, is the ideal place for appreciating the days that pass in the midst of lawns and rose parterres.
