As with a lot of overseas property listings we see, e’re having to struggle with translated details and minimal fact, but we do know this is a 1960s Jacques Rabinel-designed modernist villa in Aulnay-sur-Mauldre, near Paris, France.
By near Paris, we mean just over 20 miles from Paris, as far as we can see. Which is just about commuter distance if the road and rail networks are with you. The house itself dates from the late 1960s and is described as a holiday home – although there seems plenty of space for this to be a home min itself. At the price, so it should.
Not strictly a relic of the period, this place has undergone a significant restoration in 2003, leaving a place that’s faithful to the original design, but with the kind of finish you would expect of a modern home.
In terms of layout, you get what’s described as a ‘sumptuous’ lounge which opens onto a south facing terrace, with open views over the surrounding countryside. There’s also a ’60s-style style kitchen and a sauna on the ground floor. On the second floor there are three bedrooms, one listed as a ‘parental suite’, plus a family sized bathroom. You also get a roof terrace if you go up further.
Other features mentioned include a distinctive fireplace and stone work and a ceiling ‘in the shape of sail’. Plenty of land surrounding the place too. Probably more besides – if you are interested, check with the agent for the full breakdown. But make sure you have around £903,320 to spend though.
