Garches, HAUTS-DE-SEINE ile-de-france 92380 FR


Clos-Brétigny, with its 7 private hectares, is laid out 300 metres from one of the entrances to St Cloud Park Napoleon III’s former hunting grounds (Domaine National de Saint-Cloud). Since its creation at the end of the 19th century, Clos-Brétigny has guaranteed a much sought-after haven and quality of life. Its very central location puts numerous state and private schools within easy reach. This house is less than 10-minutes’ walk from the shops and Garches-Marnes-la-Coquette train station (line L) which has 12-minute links to La-Défense and 20-minute links to Saint-Lazare. A shuttle bus takes 20 minutes to get to private schools such as Passy-La-Salle and Daniélou in Rueil-Malmaison. The American School of Paris and the International German School are both a 5-minute bike ride away in Saint-Cloud.


This south-facing house, standing in the Clos-Brétigny district, has 375 m² of living space and a 1,458 m² garden which could be divided, making a real estate project possible. Its ground floor includes an entrance hall, a dining room, a double lounge, a kitchen opening on to an outdoor terrace, a vast veranda surrounded by a wooden terrace and a guest toilet. Upstairs it has a study, five bedrooms and three bath or shower rooms. One of the bedrooms has its own terrace whilst another features its own bathroom and dressing room. The basement is composed of several rooms including a linen room, a laundry room, a cloakroom, a projection lounge, a genuine wine cellar and an artist’s studio opening on to the garden. Said garden is immaculately kept and has an automatic watering system, outdoor lighting as well as two storage areas. This property also comes with a garage and a carport.

The house

This house, constructed from fine millstone grit at the end of the 19th century, has a gable elegantly decorated with coloured ceramic tiles. Extended in the 1920’s, a further two contemporary extensions were recently added, in harmony with its original style and facing the garden.

Ground floor
Once through the wide gates, a paved driveway leads to the front door of the house, sheltered by a porch way. A corridor, with attractive cement floor tiles, provides access to several rooms. A kitchen, on the right-hand side, is fitted with built-in cupboards. It is extended by a glazed eating area which precedes a wooden terrace, opening the entire room on to the garden. A spacious lounge, to the left of the kitchen, has parquet flooring and, with its fireplace, exudes a cosy feeling, ideal for reading. This is followed by a spectacular veranda, nestling in its verdant setting, which appears to extend the boundaries of its wide picture windows so as to incorporate the garden. It is surrounded on all sides by a wooden terrace with many areas. On the left-hand side of the entrance hall and leading to the lounge, a double living room features parquet flooring and an old fireplace. Its large picture windows communicate with a vast terrace that looks down on to the garden. On the left-hand side of a wooden stairway, going upstairs, is a guest toilet.
First floor
The stairway separates into two, making it easier to reach and move between the three bedrooms and two bathrooms on this level. The first bedroom, with strip pattern parquet flooring and refined moulding, has its own door leading to a terrace, looking down on to the garden, with verdant surroundings for as far as the eye can see. It communicates with a 1920’s style bathroom, featuring a free-standing bath set in an elegant alcove, lined with mirrors and Japanese-style wallpaper. The second bedroom, which also has access to the bathroom, has been redesigned as it was big enough to create an adjoining dressing room. The modern lines of this room blend perfectly with its old features such as its parquet flooring, its moulding and its fireplace. The third bedroom is a child’s room, decorated in soft hues, where daylight is filtered by old stained glass windows. On the other side of the landing is a modern, polished concrete shower room.
Second floor
This level, partially under the slopes of the roof, comprises a bathroom, on the left-hand side of the landing. Straight ahead is a bedroom and, on the right-hand side, are two adjoining rooms currently in use as bedrooms, but one could be turned into a study. The partially exposed roofing framework, together with the parquet flooring and the original-shaped windows, all adds to the charm of this floor.
Garden level
This level comprises several converted rooms such as a linen-laundry room, a large cloakroom, a games or projection room, a genuine wine cellar, fitted with a system that maintains its temperature and level of humidity, and an artist’s studio which is extremely luminous courtesy of its picture window and its glazed door leading to the garden.

The garden

This garden, designed by the architect who modernised the house, is vast courtesy of its lawn, majestic courtesy of its tall trees, including cedar and magnolia, and abounds in flowers courtesy of its many azalea bushes and its spectacular wisteria. Immaculately kept, with an automatic watering system and exterior lighting, it features several areas comprising a wide central lawn surrounded by tall trees as well as several terraces, steeped in sunlight or sheltered by vegetation. A treehouse will delight children whilst two sheds make great storage areas.

Our opinion

Set in such a superb district, this villa has had to maintain standards over the years. Not only has it succeeded but it has also magnificently combined opposites. The transparency of the veranda and the terraces in their verdant setting have blurred the divisions between the inside and the outside. The cosiness of the rooms is enhanced by copious amounts of light, flooding into their large floor surface areas. Refined contemporary lines blend beautifully with old wrought iron railings, wainscoting moulding, cement floor tiles and stained glass windows. The surrounding lush garden is a treat for the eyes and the verdant view continues into the distance. Any family moving in here can be sure that their friends will like their new home. And yet, this majestic setting is also ideally suited to extension and construction projects.
