A family house and its 400 m² garden
in the midst of Chauchard Park in Versailles’ Montreuil district

Versailles, YVELINES ile-de-france 78000 FR


The Music Pavilion of the Countess of Provence, wife of Louis XVIII, stands in the current Chauchard Park. It was constructed by J.F-Chalgrin around 1780. This pavilion is attached to a little, enclosed, rectangular garden, at the end of which is a statue of Alfred-Chauchard, founder of the “Grands Magasins du Louvre” department store in Paris. The Countess’s park was divided into two at the time of the French Revolution. One section became the private school, Lycée-Sainte-Geneviève, in 1913 and the other belonged to several successive owners, the last of which was Alfred-Chauchard. He built housing on the land for the most deserving of his workmen who became owners in 1902. Versailles has many schools, including the well-known Lycée-Hoche and Lycée-Granchamps. Just a few minutes from the house, the Jussieu-Montreuil, Porchefontaine, Carré-Notre-Dame and Avenue-de-Saint-Cloud markets make everyday life easier. Three train stations within a 15-minute walk provide links to Paris-Saint-Lazare and Paris-Montparnasse.


This millstone grit house stands in the midst of the private Chauchard Park. It spans a total floor surface area of 268 m², spread out over four levels, reached via a wooden stairway. Large picture windows make the house particularly luminous, especially as the main rooms face south. Several large terraces look out over the 400 m² garden.
A lounge-dining room on the ground floor is steeped in copious amounts of light. The kitchen, with its eating area, communicates not only with the living room but also opens on to a superb 36 m² terrace, overlooking the garden. This level also includes a guest toilet.
The first and second floors comprise a total of four bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room and two toilets. A large, 75 m² basement houses a self-contained bedroom, a laundry room, a wine cellar and a storage room, with numerous built-in cupboards. An unoverlooked, heavily wooded garden borders the house.

The house

This house, dating from 1902, is constructed from millstone grit. The red tile gable roof features two skylights. All four levels of the house feature a geometric architecture. Facing south, it has two large terraces: one on the ground floor and the other on the first floor, making it possible to sunbathe in the peace and quiet.

Ground floor
The vestibule, with its floor covered in large terracotta tiles, provides access to a living room. This spacious room is illuminated via two large windows and a light well. A stone fireplace in the lounge area provides a warm note in the winter. This area continues into a cleverly fitted, 17 m² kitchen and eating area. It opens on to a 36 m² terrace which, looking down on to the garden, can be used for taking meals outside during clement weather. This level also includes a toilet.
First floor
A wooden stairway goes up from the vestibule to a landing that provides access to two large, south-facing bedrooms. A bathroom, with a toilet, and a shower room are also to be found on this floor.
Second floor
Two bedrooms with sloping ceilings are both illuminated via skylights. They have a bathroom with a toilet. It would be possible to install a shower.
The 36 m² terrace, adjoining the kitchen, forms an additional room. With large, stone-coloured floor tiles, it is laid out just like a living room. There is a canvas roof for use during bad weather, with a specially designed lighting system.
The basement spans a floor surface area of 75 m². It includes a bedroom, with a proper window, which is totally independent. A study with a French window has a door leading directly outside, making it ideal for those seeking to work from home. This level also comprises a laundry room, a storage room and a wine cellar.
The garden
The 400 m² garden, fully enclosed by walls, is planted with several species of trees and numerous spring flowers. The tranquillity of this green open space is not troubled by any nuisances. A chalet, at the end of the garden, is used for storing all that is necessary to make the summer months comfortable.

Our opinion

This property, with a garden, a large terrace and no less than five bedrooms, has all the assets essential to a real family home. It is set back in the peace and quiet within Chauchard Park, in a most prestigious town, where it is extremely pleasant to live near Château-de-Versailles. Fireplaces that notably heat the living rooms, bestow the residence with a countrified air. And yet Paris is but a 15-minute train ride away! It is therefore quite possible to go to work every day in the French capital before spending evenings with the family amidst the roses. Furthermore, the four markets, held in the town, are yet another asset as the quality of their produce is highly acclaimed.
