We are particularly proud to present this true architectural gem which, thanks to the love and dedication of its current owner, has preserved and maintained its remarkable and original pure Art Deco style. Set in 3.5 hectares of grounds in a sought-after village just five minutes from Rambouillet, “La Chesnaie” offers 465 sqm of living space on four floors.
Crossing through the monumental entrance gates, the superb pavilion comes into view along with three outbuildings for vehicles and horses, as well as a highly original little theater.
Designed and built just before the Second World War for a Parisian industrialist in order to welcome his guests, this former hunting lodge imitates plans and elements of a pavilion created by Paul Petit for the 1937 International Exposition of Art and Technology in Modern Life. He also designed the furnishings which are to this day in the property. As was custom at the time, for some two years a group of artists and craftsmen were invited by the architect to create the decorative elements, thus creating a remarkable harmony and coherence. Among these were painters, sculptors and glasswork artists who are today internationally renowned, and who also worked on such iconic buildings as the Folies Bergère and Palais Chaillot.
Each and every detail brings back this remarkable and creative period, and evokes the property’s magnificent natural environment and its vocation as a hunting lodge. Outside the sculptured bas-relief pediment is in itself an architectural masterpiece, while inside the monumental entrance hall is breathtaking. Along with a wealth of modernist features, a ship’s rail and porthole give the impression of a cruise liner, very much a fashion in the 1930’s.
Inside, each room boasts its original marble or tesserae-mosaic floor surfaces, often old rose in color so typical to the period. Particularly notable are the ground-floor lounge-bar which served as a ballroom and conservatory, and which features stucco medallions, mother-of-pearl incrusted columns, and a copper-top bar. Upstairs a remarkable reception room features polished red stucco walls, as well as a superb fireplace with a sculpted falcon atop…A terrace commands an open view of the French formal garden as well as its mirror pond which features a sculpted herd of wild boar seemingly drinking…An exceptional billiard room is on the second floor, as are seven bedrooms in which the Art Deco style is omnipresent and a delight to behold. In the kitchen original solid oak and enameled tiles, a must in the period, have been meticulously preserved.
The property is sold entirely furnished, including the statues, in order to preserve its exceptional character and style.
A unique property steeped in history under an hour from Paris.
