Not too far from Paris, but with plenty of greenery on your doorstep. That’s just two reasons to love this 1950s Henri Calmat-designed property in Seine-et-Marne, Ile-de-France, France.
Of course, the architecture is another reason to love this place. It was actually designed by the architect for his own use back in 1952 and subsequently by his family.
It doesn’t look like things have changed with this one for quite some time. or at least, that’s the impression were get from the limited number of images inside the house.
Really, just the main living room is captured, which shows plenty of originality, from the floors, walls and ceiling through to the fittings and the central fireplace, described by the agent as a work of art. We can only presume the rest of the house follows suit. Oh yes, check out that roof too.
In terms of the living space, everything looks to be on the one floor. That includes an artist’s studio, a spacious living room with extensive glazing, a dining area raised up from it, the kitchen with additional space off it and a toilet.
Beyond that is the ‘family’ area, which is made up of a bedroom with its own bathroom (complete with marble floor), two more bedrooms on either side of a second bathroom and finally the fourth bedroom, which also has its own bathroom space.
Outside is a garage with room for two vehicles, a boiler room / laundry and a pantry. Three hectares of land too, a mix of woods and parkland.
More details and images on the agent’s site and if you like the idea of moving to France, this one is up for €657,000.
