A 1930 house set in a tranquil wooded garden
in a loop of the Marne river in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés
Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, VAL-DE-MARNE paris 94100 FR

Location

A mere 5-minute walk from the RER A and 8 minutes from the future metro station, in Saint-Maur des-Fossés, a residential town known for its peaceful yet dynamic character, 10 km from Paris. The town was formed by the merger of eight former villages on a peninsula surrounded by a loop of the river Marne and its municipal cultural and sports facilities are a beacon for the whole of the Val-de Marne department. Its riverbanks have been developed for walkers and sports enthusiasts, and lovers of traditional "guinguettes" (outdoor dance venues) can enjoy dancing next to the river.
The house is located in the residential area around the town hall, one of the most sought-after districts in town. Two higher secondary schools are nearby: Lycée Marcelin-Berthelot (15-minute walk) and Lycée d'Arsonval (8 minutes).

Description

The 1930 house stands at the end of a private driveway, set back from a well-known avenue of Saint-Maur-des Fossés, in the district of the Town Hall. Access to the property is secured by an intercom system and an automatic gate. A burglar alarm has been installed to protect the premises from break-ins.
The entrance to the property is via a Paris cobblestone driveway. The house is surrounded by a garden abounding in centuries-old trees, shrubs and flowerbeds, bordered by a cobblestone path identical to the entrance driveway. The two-storey house sits on grounds of around 430 m² and is therefore completely protected from any disturbance from neighbours. Built in 1930, the villa enjoys a dual east-western exposure.
It has a gable roof with interlocking tiles. The facade is rendered in white, highlighting the Virginia creeper climbing the wall. Palm trees adorn the main facade.
There are two entrances, on either side of the house, the main one topped by a flat glass and wrought iron canopy. A large glass door opens onto one part of the garden and a water lily pond. The windows are rectangular, apart from two arched openings - larger on the ground floor and narrower on the first floor. Numerous small-paned windows, predominantly low and wide on the ground floor and smaller on the first floor, bathe the building in light. All the windows are double-glazed and have aniseed green louvered shutters.
A fully-equipped, self-contained studio flat and a closed garage for one car complete the property, to the right of the entrance. It is possible to park a second vehicle on the cobblestone driveway leading to the house.

The house

The rooms are spread over two levels. On the ground floor, there is a dining area and an adjoining double sitting room with views over the garden, as well as a first bedroom with a bathroom and lavatory. The kitchen has direct access to the garden through the second entrance door to the house. It also includes a larder area.
A staircase leads to the upper floor of the house, where a landing serves three separate areas: the master bedroom, a third bedroom and a separate shower room with toilet.
A basement with a storeroom and boiler room completes the property.


The ground floor
The house is accessed via a wooden glass door with wrought iron fittings and glazed transom. The entrance hall leads to a dining room of approx. 18 m² to the right, where a wooden staircase ascends to the first floor. This room is followed by a 21 m² sitting room with straight strip hardwood flooring. A sober black marble and white earthenware fireplace provides additional heating to the main gas-fired condensing boiler. The sitting room extends into an area with a Burgundy stone floor and a large glass door to the garden and nearby pond. To the left of the entrance door is the first bedroom (approx. 9 m²) with en suite bathroom and lavatory. Opposite the entrance is a brightly tiled, fitted kitchen of approx. 15 m² with an old Godin range cooker. A utility room provides storage space. The house's second glass entrance door opens from the kitchen to the rear garden.
The first floor
The upper floor is accessed via the only staircase in the house, which starts from the dining room. A landing leads to the first bedroom (approx. 12 m²), which has built-in storage units and two windows, one of which is a skylight. The second bedroom on this level, with a floor area of almost 20 m², also has plenty of storage space and two windows, one of which is a skylight. From this bedroom, a staircase provides access to an 8 m² mezzanine, currently used as an office. Between the two bedrooms is a separate shower room with toilet. The bedrooms under sloping and beamed ceilings are air-conditioned and have narrow strip solid oak flooring.
The basement
With a total floor area of 18 m², the basement contains a Frisquet condensing gas boiler, installed in 2012. The space is presently used for storage.

The studio flat

Situated to the right of the entrance to the property, a self-contained, fully equipped studio flat with a total floor area of approx. 16 m², comprising a kitchen, a shower room with toilet and a main room, completes the living space.

The shed

This closed storage unit measures around 10 m² and provides space for garden equipment.

The garden

Extending over roughly 300 m², the garden features a wide variety of trees, shrubs and flowerbeds, as well as a water lily pond fed by a pipe, adding a welcome touch of freshness on sunny days. The vegetation protects the property from prying eyes. A sprinkler system makes everyday life easier. The garden is lit at night by judiciously placed spotlights.

Our opinion

The house's main asset is its location in the sought-after district around the town hall, close to transport links, theatres, the music school and shops, as well as the banks of the Marne and its "guinguettes". The building has been well maintained, allowing future inhabitants to move in quickly. The noble original materials and some of the old fittings have been retained, enhancing the comfortable furnishings and fittings that have been chosen throughout.
The garden, with its many different types of trees and shrubs, stretching out on either side of the house, adds to the charm of the setting, where finesse and sobriety are combined to create a discreet retreat offering precious tranquillity.
