House Pontoise (95)

An early 19th century house, facing its parklands, in the midst of the old market town of Luzarches.
40 km from Paris, 10 minutes from the Francilienne ring road with links to the A16 and A1 motorways, 20 minutes from Charles-de-Gaulle airport and its economic zone, Luzarches has the benefit of a unique road network. Its train station makes it possible to reach the French capital in 45 minutes courtesy of which, employment and professional opportunities are nearby. And yet, this house stands in the midst of a very old market town, not far from the village square, with its 14th century covered market place and Saint-Côme church. Food shops, a café, public amenities, a chemist and a health centre, all within walking distance, provide an ever-traditional way of life. And lastly, Chantilly Forest, on the outskirts of the market town, is ideal for long outings on foot or horseback.
This house stands between a narrow street and its parklands, planted with centuries-old trees. The property is accessed via a little, wooden, pedestrian gate which opens directly into the garden. The house is separated from the outbuildings by the parklands, at the end of which is a set of gates, opening to let cars on to the property.
The houseThis large house was constructed during the reign of Napoleon 1st. The Empire style is discreetly reflected by the neo-classical architectural features such as the two columns supporting the entrance porch, the five perfectly aligned bays, the slatted shutters at each window and the general symmetry of the building. Its sober decoration, free of ostentation, inspires a luminous, timeless elegance which legitimises imperial elegance. But, adjoining this direct, pure architecture is another, radically different building, adding a picturesque touch. In fact, this second section is composed of a partially half-timbered facade, an oblong turret, with a slate roof, a small balcony and a roof featuring a break, very different from the gable roof covering the main house. Although these two architectural identities, neo-classical hieratism and neo-medieval folklore, are directly opposed to one another, their contrast does not shock. This is no doubt due to the patina of time and the similarity of sizes which produce an overall harmony despite the differences in style.
Ground floor
Double, glazed doors provide access to a vestibule, its stone floor tiles laid in a chessboard pattern featuring black inlaid decoration. A stairway, set back on one side, represents the centre of the house. It is enhanced via a large wall mirror facing it. Said entrance hall leads, on one side, to a large lounge and, on the other, to a dining room and a kitchen.
All the reception rooms are illuminated via several windows that let in copious amounts of light and blur the boundaries between the inside and the outside. On one side, the dining room, with herringbone pattern parquet flooring and two French windows opening directly on to the parklands, is able to seat some twelve guests. It is adjoined by a pantry, followed by the kitchen. On the other side of the vestibule, the large lounge where two ambiances exist side by side: that of the lounge itself overlooking the parklands and that of the area around the fireplace. The latter is composed of brick and undoubtedly dates from the 1920’s. This reception room precedes a study-library, exuding a more confidential atmosphere. An independent studio flat, with a bathroom and a kitchen area, completes this level.
First floor
A hanging stairway, with a varnished wood handrail, protected by cast iron baluster railings, goes to the upper floors. A central landing, with old terracotta floor tiles, provides access to six bedrooms, exuding a similar ambiance to the ground floor, but cosier and with more privacy. Small fireplaces and old parquet flooring add …
