A millstone grit villa with six bedrooms and
a garden in Versailles’ Chauchard Park

Location

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.

Description

This millstone grit house, standing in the midst of the private Chauchard Park, was designed by a local architect from Versailles, Page-de-Fontanelle, who also designed a number of houses in the town during the last century. Named “Villa Meryem”, it spans 206 m² of living space over four levels, reached via a wooden stairway. The ground floor comprises a dining room and a lounge, both south-facing and opening on to the garden. The first and second floors comprise six bedrooms. The basement includes a garage, a playroom and two cellars. A superb wisteria climbs up around the wrought iron railings.

“Villa Meryem”

A flight of steps, protected by a wooden, Roman tile-covered awning, leads up to the front door of the house.


Ground floor
The vestibule, with its Provencal style terracotta floor tiles, opens on the left-hand side into a kitchen, a bright, spacious room where meals can be taken whilst admiring the view of the driveway in Chauchard Park through its large window. A dining room and an adjoining lounge form a comfortable area spanning 43 m². Two large French windows open on to the garden. Each room has a fireplace.
First floor
The wooden stairway goes up from the vestibule to a landing providing access to four bedrooms and a bathroom with a toilet. All the rooms have light-coloured oak wood parquet flooring. Two south-facing bedrooms look out over the garden, behind wrought iron balustrades. The two other bedrooms are equally as delightful, one courtesy of its fireplace and the other because of its size.
Second floor
A landing provides access to two bedrooms with sloping ceilings. One is illuminated via through light from two shed dormers and the other, adjoining a shower room, via a large roof dormer.
The extension of the house on this level has resulted in the creation of areas and rooms full of charm.

Basement
This level is divided into two sections, reached via the inside of the villa, via the garden or via the street. They house a boiler room, a cellar and a children’s playroom.
The garden
The garden is reached via the dining room which opens on to a welcoming, south-facing teak wood terrace. A few steps go down into the garden, delimited by an old stone wall and planted, amongst other things, with an old olive tree and a rose garden.

Our opinion

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.
