The house is locate in a park that was build by a Doctor of Louis XV to cultivate botanic plants.
In 1929 this park has been transformed in a small residence. The old part of our house has been built at this period.
With our architect we have kept this old part and have added a brand new and modern block to double the surface.
The interior is then a mix of old and modern furnitures.
The house has a lot of windows with a large view on the garden and the forest behind. The old masonry wall at the end of the garden is as old as the park and give a romantic style to our garden.
The garden is oriented to the south and benefit of an excellent sun light all along the day. The house is made of light concrete with a double aeration system that take the fresh air in the cellar to keep the house temperate during all season. An electronic alarm and automated windows screen help you to close easily the house when leaving.
