“Le Vézillon”

Vaucresson, quiet and verdant, was a holiday resort much sought-after by Parisians seeking rest and relaxation in the summer months.
Constructed at the end of the 19th century, this Norman-style property, with its half-timbering, stands in a 1,200 m² garden. Half-timbering, a construction technique known since Ancient Rome, has been used in France since the Middle-Ages.

Ground floor
The residence’s main entrance hall features a large, solid wood, arched door and pastel-coloured, mosaic patterned floor tiles. It provides access to a 60 m², double reception room which is steeped in light courtesy of seven large windows, facing east, south and west.
The herringbone pattern parquet flooring, a great classic in Haussmannian interiors, guides the light and creates depth. A stone fireplace contributes to its conviviality on winter evenings.
On the right-hand side is a conservatory, under an atrium forming an intermediate area between the inside and the garden, and a fully fitted kitchen, communicating with the conservatory, the garden and the reception room. This kitchen is big enough to include an eating area. A winding, oak stairway goes upstairs.

First floor
This level has light-coloured, oak wood parquet flooring throughout. It comprises four large bedrooms with high ceilings. All the rooms are bright and face the garden.
Also on this floor are a bathroom, with a shower, adjoining one of the bedrooms, a separate shower room, a large dressing room and a separate toilet.

Second floor
The second floor, with its sloping ceilings, houses a master bedroom, with its study area. A French window opens on to a balcony, with a clear view of the garden.
It precedes an elegant bathroom, enhanced with mosaic tiles in hues of grey and old parquet flooring. It is fitted with a bath, a shower and two wash-hand basins.
A pleasant bedroom has a first dressing room, whilst a second is separate. A separate toilet. The landing walls are lined with cupboards.

This level runs the full surface area of the house. It can be reached via a stairway in the kitchen. A fully panelled billiards’ room is steeped in daylight via three openings. Also in the basement are a workshop, a large games room with a window, a linen room and a storeroom.
The entrance hall, featuring old terracotta floor tiles, provides access to a shower room, with a shower, a toilet and a wash-hand basin, as well as to a spacious garage. The upstairs comprises a dining room-kitchen and a bedroom.
The garage can be entered via a courtyard, with Napoleon paving, whilst the outbuilding is reached via its paved terrace, where garden furniture is obviously laid out during the summer months.

The garden
The garden, spanning a surface area of 1,200 m², includes a 30 m² outbuilding, simply exuding character. Planted with trees and shrubs, it is steeped in serenity. The summer terrace in front of the outbuilding faces south. A pergola is but waiting for climbing plants. When the trees are in leaf, this naturally protected area is completely unoverlooked. The garden is also big enough to take a swimming pool.

Our opinion

Projections, gables, stone and half-timbered masonry, all these architectural codes make the ever-attractive Anglo-Norman style both elegant and familiar. And then there is the refined design of the glazing and the atrium framework, bringing images of a certain art of living to mind. Vaucresson is no longer in the depths of the countryside where, at the end of the “Ancien Régime” (old order), the first hot air balloon, carrying animals in its basket, successfully landed. The town, nevertheless, remains airy, quiet and verdant. A large family settling here, in the main residence and its outbuilding, will have adequate privacy for all of its members in light, bright rooms.
