The town of Versailles, some fifteen kilometres from Paris, expanded under the encouragement of Louis XIV who, after having moved the sovereign power out of Paris, decided to give away plots of building land along the main roads leading to the castle, then undergoing construction. Hence, the creation notably of the Countess of Provence’s Music Pavilion today standing in Chauchard Park, a 12 ha estate which is also home to the very well-known private school, Lycée-Sainte-Geneviève. Versailles itself has numerous other good schools, including the famous Lycée-Hoche and Lycée-Grandchamps. Just a few minutes from the house are the Jussieu-Montreuil, Porchefontaine, Carré-Notre-Dame and Avenue-de-Saint-Cloud markets, making everyday life easier. Three train stations provide 15-minute links to Paris.
A flight of steps, protected by a wooden, Roman tile-covered awning, leads up to the front door of the house.
A garden, a large, south-facing terrace and no less than six bedrooms: there is no need to highlight the fact that this millstone grit “Villa Meryem” has the assets essential to a real family home. The property is set back in the peace and quiet inside Chauchard Park, in a most prestigious town, where it is extremely pleasant to live near to the castle and its parklands. The fireplaces that notably heat the living rooms provide this residence with a countrified ambiance and yet Paris is but 15 minutes away by train. It is therefore quite possible to go to work every day in the French capital before coming home to the family of an evening in the midst of trees and roses. In addition, four markets, held in the town, are yet another asset as the quality of their produce is highly acclaimed.
