A splendid house just west of Paris with a guesthouse, a pool,
a tennis court and lush grounds that cover more than 4,200m²
Orgerus, YVELINES paris 78910 FR


The property is nestled in Orgerus, a charming village with 2,500 inhabitants. It lies just west of Paris. You can reach it one hour from the French capital by car. The town of Thoiry and its famous zoo lie a few kilometres from Orgerus. A secondary road linking together the towns of Septeuil and Neauphle-le-Vieux takes you to Orgerus, as does a road that goes from Richebourg, another local town. Orgerus has a train station. Line N on the Paris region’s Transilien rail network runs through this station. From there, you can get to central Paris in only 46 minutes. The village offers many shops. And a market where local producers have stalls is held twice a week here too.


The property lies in the heart of the village, a stone’s throw from its vast tree-lined central square where the village market takes place. Several shops stand around this square. The walled grounds cover more than 4,200m². An electric gate leads into them. There is a main house, which offers a floor area of around 345m², a guesthouse with a liveable floor area of around 170m², a swimming pool with a sliding roof, a porous-concrete tennis court, and a building with two garages and an adjoining shelter. A shed adjoins the main house. Gardening tools and machinery can be stored in it. Beyond the covered entrance gate, a vast area beside the garages offers parking space for several vehicles. The main house and the guesthouse have some architectural traits and materials in common: walls of stonework that is exposed or rendered, two floors, gable roofs of flat tiles, and windows shaped as large semicircular arches. The entrance doors of both houses face the garden. And all the French windows of the reception rooms in both dwellings lead straight out into the garden too.

The main house

This former village farmhouse was built in the 18th century. It is made of stone. On the garden side, the stonework is exposed. The building has now become a charming L-shaped dwelling: two sections stand at a right angle to one another, linked together by a glass-roofed gallery. A flat-tile roof punctuated with dormers crowns the main section. Large, evenly spaced French windows in semicircular arches lead out from the ground floor to a paved terrace that edges the dwelling and takes you to the garden. Rectangular windows along the first floor bathe the upstairs interior in natural light. The main house offers a liveable floor area of around 345m². It has a ground floor, a first floor and a loft that has not been converted. A condensing gas boiler heats up the house’s domestic hot water.

The ground floor
A large entrance hall with a floor of pale stone tiles connects to many rooms on the ground floor: a cloakroom, a guest lavatory, a spacious lounge with a fireplace, a first office, a dining room, a vast kitchen, a scullery, a utility room, a second office adjoining the utility room, a cellar, and a storeroom. A small separate hallway on the ground floor lies beside the second office.

On its right side, the large entrance hall connects to the lounge and the dining room. Together, these three rooms form a vast reception space that offers a floor area of around 90m², adorned with pale stone floor tiles. The lounge is bathed in natural light from two arched French windows that lead straight out into the garden. One wall features a broad, majestic stone fireplace in the middle of it. Beams painted white run across the ceiling. Their light tone contributes to the room’s brightness afforded by the large French windows. The dining room lies in the gallery that connects the house’s two sections together. Its glass roof and French windows leading straight out to the garden fill it with natural light. An office lies in line with the entrance hall. It offers a floor area of around 12m².

To the left of the main hallway, there is a vast modern kitchen with a floor of polished concrete. It features a central island unit with a lava-stone work surface. Exposed beams run across the ceiling and give the kitchen character. A scullery and a utility room adjoin the kitchen. Next to the kitchen, a second entrance hall on the ground floor connects to a large office with wood strip flooring beside the utility room. The two rooms could be turned into a spacious bedroom with its own bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.

The upstairs
Two staircases, each leading up from an entrance hall, take you upstairs. The first floor has a bathroom with a lavatory and four spacious bedrooms. The vast master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. Two of the bedrooms share a shower room. At the top of the staircase leading up from the main hallway, there is a corridor. On one side, this corridor connects to the master bedroom and to another bedroom. One the other side, it takes you to a spacious landing that serves as a television lounge. A second staircase leads straight up to this landing and takes you to the two other bedrooms. Throughout this level, the floors are made of concrete and carpeted. These carpets could be replaced with wood strip flooring if preferred. A trapdoor leads to the loft, which has an insulated floor.

The guesthouse

The guesthouse was built in the 20th century in the same style as the main house. Its elevations are coated with pale rendering. Glazed semicircular arches along the ground floor recall those of the main house. It offers a liveable floor area of around 170m², spread over two levels: a ground floor and first floor. A roof of flat tiles crowns the dwelling. The guesthouse stands almost at a right angle to the historical main house, separated from it by a lush lawn. It is a long building that is divided into two parts: one section houses a workshop and the main house’s boiler room; the other section is the guest dwelling. The ground floor includes a spacious lounge with a fireplace, a tiled shower room with a lavatory, and, lastly, a room that offers a huge bath with water jets. On the first floor, a landing connects to a large bedroom with sloping attic ceilings and to a loft space that has not been converted. On the ground floor, the floors are made of polished stamped concrete that imitates wood strip flooring. Upstairs, the floors are made of concrete and are carpeted. The walls are made of concrete that has been plastered and painted.

A network of convection heaters warms up the guesthouse. And the dwelling’s domestic hot water comes from electric hot-water cylinders. A swimming pool and a pool house beside it extend the guesthouse.

The carport
To the right of the covered entrance that leads into the property, there is a parking area where several vehicles can be parked. It extends in front of a double garage with an adjoining shelter for two cars. This structure, crowned with a roof of flat tiles, is built in a cottage style of timber and rendered concrete. It blends well with the rest of the property.

The pool-house
A pool house stands in line with the swimming space of around 90m². This small building houses a summer kitchen and the pool’s technical equipment room, which includes a dehumidifier. The sliding pool roof can be slipped into the little structure’s loft entirely.

The garden

The vast garden is a secret oasis of greenery that covers over 3,500m². Here you can admire a beautiful patchwork of lawns, woods, bushes and clusters of flowering shrubs. In the middle of the garden, there is a small terrace of timber decking. It lies opposite the French windows of the main house’s lounge and forms an island surrounded by a lush lawn. You can place garden furniture on this wooden terrace in the shade of tall trees that tower around this delightful spot. And a large terrace with a pergola adjoining the guesthouse lies opposite a tennis court with a porous-concrete surface and a tennis training wall.

The swimming pool

The swimming pool is 9 metres long and 4.5 metres wide. It has a pale-blue liner and it is equipped with a counter-current system. The whole space dedicated to swimming, including its paved poolside area, covers around 90m². A sliding roof of translucent panels on rails turns the space into an indoor swimming pool. A dehumidifier ensures that these panels do not mist up, so swimmers can enjoy views of the garden. In the summer, the roof can be slid entirely away inside the pool house.

This delightful property is a rare gem, tucked away in the heart of a charming village near the vibrant town of Thoiry. It has been looked after remarkably well, maintained meticulously and decorated with refined taste. This secret haven exudes character and authenticity. Its generously sized rooms are flooded with natural light. High-quality materials, both old and new, adorn the place.

With its large main dwelling, guesthouse, pool, tennis court and village with a train station offering rail journeys straight into central Paris, this splendid property could be a wonderful main home or a magical holiday home where different generations of an extended family can truly relax and host friends.
