An early 20th century family home and its 2,500 m² garden,
in Montmorency, just a stone’s throw from the national forest
Enghien-les-Bains, VAL-D'OISE paris 95880 FR


Since the 10th century, members of the Montmorency family, descendants of Charlemagne, have been lords of the Ile-de-France region; it is perhaps the most illustrious after the royal family. Their lands dominate the Montmorency Valley and the Plain of France. The town of Montmorency, standing on a promontory, has controlled the main routes connecting Paris to Rouen, to Beauvais and to Amiens since ancient times. It is some 13 km to the north of the gates to the French capital and 21 km from Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport. Several nearby train stations (on suburban lines and RER train line C) make it possible to reach Paris in 15 minutes. The town’s amenities include nurseries, infant, primary and secondary schools as well as sixth form colleges.


This Vigny stone house was constructed in 1910 and extended in 1930. It stands on the heights of Montmorency, near to the national forest. The town centre is a 5-minute car drive away. This residence, set in the midst of a landscaped garden, has two terraces. The vast rooms succeeding one another from the garden level up to the second floor include a kitchen which opens on to one of the terraces and a first lounge. The second lounge, on the garden level, spans 73 m² and is extended by the second terrace, followed by the garden. One of the four bedrooms divided between the two upper floors has a large bathroom. The attic space could be converted. The remainder of the rooms include a study, a dressing room, a summer kitchen, a laundry room, a cellar and a garage, able to take four cars.

The garden
Nothing disturbs the peace and quiet of this 2,500 m² walled area, planted with several species of trees.

Our opinion

The name Montmorency immediately brings to mind an illustrious lineage in the history of France, a vast national forest on the outskirts of Paris and the small town, on its edge, standing on a promontory. The fact that the house is in the top section of its large garden, makes the view of the natural surroundings, both near and far, even better. The first third of the 20th century is responsible for its decorative motifs, unpretentious outside and bold inside. Two immense lounges, two terraces and a stairway, the size and design of the railings of which are impressive. This very comfortable home appears to be the undefended result of a subtle balance between audacity and restraint known as good taste.
