A 1930’s house and its garden
in the Montretout-Coutureau district of Saint-Cloud

Saint-Cloud, HAUTS-DE-SEINE ile-de-france 92210 FR


The history of France owes some of its more spectacular pages to Saint-Cloud. The town is named after Clodoald, grandson of Clovis, who took refuge here in 551 in order to escape from his uncles, out to kill him. Saint-Cloud was, at that time, but a hamlet of woodcutters and fishermen named Novigentum. Clodoald created a sanctuary and lived there for the rest of his life, whilst his family continued to slay one another for the crown.
The town, 5 km from Paris, is in the French department of Hauts-de-Seine. It is bordered by its park and renowned for its pleasant way of life. Montretout plateau is much sought-after courtesy of its proximity to the golf course, the park and the racecourse. State schools are but a 5-minute walk away. The American School and the German School are also nearby. A train station, just a stone’s throw away, provides 20-minute links to Paris-Saint-Lazare.


This house was built in 1930 at the time when the district of Montretout-Coutureau was created on farmland, interspersed with large residences belonging to wealthy Parisians. Prior to 1936, the Boulevard-de-la-République was known as Boulevard-de-Versailles. It was lined with boarding houses and coaching inns where travellers used to stay. This house, with its 280 m² garden, spans 190 m² of living space over three levels. Its plain facade can but be covered with wisteria and Virginia creeper. This south-west facing property is peaceful as well as sunny. The ground floor comprises a kitchen, big enough for a family to take its meals there and having a door opening directly out on to a south-facing terrace, a bedroom, a shower room and a toilet. Upstairs is a tripe aspect living room, featuring a 1930’s style fireplace. A bedroom and its bathroom as well as a toilet complete this level. The cathedral ceiling on the top floor creates an air of an artist’s studio. It comprises three bedrooms, a study, a bathroom and a separate toilet.

The house

The gates to the property provide access to the garden. The house can be entered via an entrance off of a quiet, pedestrian street. The garden, enhanced with a wooden terrace, is planted with all kinds of trees. Wisteria grows around the French window which opens directly into the kitchen. Virginia creeper, ivy and miscellaneous other climbing plants create a verdant wall.

Garden level
The 40 m² kitchen, with Provencal terracotta floor tiles, encourages its residents to linger. Wide picture windows provide access out on to the wooden terrace where it is pleasant to take meals as soon as the weather is clement. This garden level also comprises a small back kitchen and a laundry room, a room which could be used as a bedroom and a shower room with a toilet.
First floor
The 45 m² lounge area is exceptionally luminous courtesy of its triple aspect. The light-coloured, oak wood parquet flooring and the 1930’s style fireplace make this room very attractive. A bedroom, its bathroom and a separate toilet complete this level.
Second floor
A wooden stairway goes up to the third level. Exposed roofing framework beams, a mezzanine and a cathedral ceiling set a very artistic tone throughout this floor which is pleasantly steeped in light. This level comprises three identical bedrooms, a study under the roofing framework, a shower room and a toilet. It could become the realm of three or four children.

Our opinion

A little private universe, this property constitutes a countrified haven very near to the French capital. This is one of the advantages of Saint-Cloud which, furthermore, meets all family requirements. This pretty house, far from fanciful, is embellished by grasses and plants that are somewhat wild just like the era in which this house was constructed. Several interior, highly convivial areas contribute to the holiday air that prevails throughout. It has something quite resplendent which can but be enhanced by a few minor works.
