This MODERN DESIGNER HOUSE was constructed to be both a family home and A WORK OF ART. Designed at the turn of the century by AWARD-WINNING ARCHITECT, Sophie Berthelier, it blends durable materials like copper with spacious interiors and natural light. The house was constructed IN GROUNDS THAT WERE ONCE GARDENS OF A CHATEAU and was specifically designed to make the most of the outdoor space as well as provide views of the chateau from every room.

The main living area boasts south facing floor-to-ceiling windows and allows for multiple sitting/dining areas. It shares a fireplace with the modern, fully-equipped kitchen. The master suite includes a small office area, dressing room, bathroom and WC. There are two additional bedrooms, a media room and a luxurious home spa. While beautiful, both inside and out, it was also designed to be functional. Most rooms have built-in wardrobes and cupboards providing plenty of storage. Every room has outdoor access and vehicles have direct access to the main entries to allow for easy loading/unloading of groceries, luggage, etc. The property has been outfitted with wall-to-wall hardwood floors, underfloor heating, electric shades, central vacuum system, integrated water-softener, strategic outdoor lighting and automatic sprinkler system.


ABOUT THE AREA

The village boasts a number of local shops, services and train station 6km away. The town hall, located in a 17th-century castle, organises various clubs and activities. In the chateau grounds one can see remains of the famous Louis XIV canal. For needs on a grander scale, residents are only 15 minutes from Chartres. Along with shops, restaurants, sports facilities, aerodrome and other businesses, it's home to Chartres Cathedral, a World Heritage Site renowned for its stained glass, gothic architecture and rich history.
