A 288 m² architect-designed house with garden awaiting renovation
in Antony, just a stone's throw from Parc de Sceaux
Antony, HAUTS-DE-SEINE paris 92160 FR


8 km from Porte d'Orléans, the main gateway to the capital, the town of Antony lies at the meeting point of three departments. The area enjoys excellent road links, a wide range of public transport services, cycle paths and access to Orly airport in less than 8 minutes via the Orlyval shuttle service. The RER B regional express train line puts the town within easy reach of all Paris stations, as well as Massy TGV high speed railway station. The municipality benefits from a highly attractive geographical location, at the crossroads of major thoroughfares and trunk roads, including the "coulée verte" (planted walkway) of the South Paris region, as well as green spaces covering almost 20% of its surface area. There are several nurseries, public and private primary and secondary schools nearby, including the prestigious "Institution Sainte-Marie".


Situated in a well-known residential area, right next to the Parc de Sceaux and the RER station of the same name, the house offers a floor area of almost 288 m², on a plot totalling approx. 735 m². It was built in 1974 by a particularly inspired architect, who focused on the intimate link between the home and its surroundings, both verdant and urban. The layout follows and respects the curves of the terrain, which is planted with numerous species of trees and shrubs. A first terrace, accessed from the sitting room, and two others on the upper floor are designed to enjoy the garden. The original owners clearly sought to create a unique residence.
With its wide facades extending over three storeys, rendered in white and clad with slate, featuring large openings with wooden surrounds, sliding or fixed with glazed transoms, the house could embody the '70s Architectural Manifesto. The innovative layout, the generous proportions and the quality of the natural materials used at the time of construction make this house an atypical building complex, perfectly integrated into its surroundings. Some of the original features, such as the staircase, the very backbone of the house, and the fireplace with its three hearths, are all in good condition. The interior decor is complemented by the view of the outdoor spaces, accessed from various rooms in the house, and the concrete roof terrace, another place from which to enjoy the surrounding greenery. The basement, of the same floor area as the other levels, provides large storage spaces, as well as a service flat and a garage, with ample parking for four cars.

The house

The ground floor
The entrance hall leads on one side to the central staircase and on the other to a guest lavatory with handbasin, a first bedroom with a shower room, a cupboard and a small kitchen. Next follows a large passageway, with custom-made wardrobes, leading to two bedrooms, currently joined to form one, a shower room and a separate lavatory. A study lit by two openings precedes the reception area. A flight of steps then leads to the sitting room and the dining room. This is where the massive, cylindrical fireplace stands, with its brick and concrete triple hearth opening onto the two rooms and the garden. The sitting room is designed to provide a panoramic view of the garden and terrace, allowing the eye to gaze over the shrubbery. The grounds are not only perfect for a family, but also an ideal place for entertaining friends. The kitchen, scullery and pantry are accessed from either the dining room or the entrance hall, which makes it easy to move around. The floors are laid with charcoal-coloured tiles, with the exception of the bedroom, which has hardwood flooring. The walls and ceilings are finished with roughcast or painted white, with the exception of the passageways, where the ceilings are clad with warm-coloured wooden strips.
The first floor
At the end of the half-turn staircase with wooden open-riser treads and a metal and glass balustrade, protected at the top by a metal, wood and glass screen, there is a landing with bespoke storage units all along its length, leading to two bedrooms, one of which measures almost 21 m² and features an en-suite bathroom with window and a small closet. There is also a kitchen on this level, which could be converted into a bathroom. Two terraces offer stunning views and the chance to soak up the sun on fine days. Some of the floors are covered with inlaid parquet.
The half-story
There is a service flat on the split-level before the basement, comprising a kitchen area, a shower room, a separate lavatory and a bedroom with a window opening onto the street.
The basement
The basement includes two storage areas of around 19 and 23 m² respectively, a ventilated wine cellar with an earthen floor, and a 30 m² workshop with built-in cupboards and a window. Finally, there is a garage for four medium-sized cars.

The garden

The completely enclosed, lawned and tree-lined garden, adorned with small flowerbeds and various shrubs, features a stone-paved terrace topped by a massive wooden pergola bordering the house, and is accessed from several points on the ground floor. The resulting osmosis between the garden and the interior space is particularly pleasing, both inside and out.

Our opinion

The architectural style seems to have been inspired by the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Pure lines, simplicity, harmony and audacious light communicate and respond to each other. Each opening creates a different picture of the garden, blurring the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. The ever-changing spectacle of the seasons is played out behind the huge openings which frame the lush green scenes. Renovation and refurbishment work will allow a large family to adapt the property to their needs and to fully enjoy the generous, flowing spaces offered on all levels.
