HEC Domaine Saint Marc, Jouy-en-Josas
A unique opportunity so close to the capital, this 19th century property with a guest house and outbuildings is in an exceptional setting surrounded by woodland, lakes, fields and pastures. Located in a peaceful no-through road yet not isolated, it benefits from two separate entrances one with motorised gates. Steeped in history, it was owned until recently by the Mallet-Oberkampf family whose ancestors are renowned for their part in the creation of the iconic Toile de Jouy fabric. Occupied by the Germans during the Second World War, the property was successively home to a nature loving butterfly collector, and for several months Burt Lancaster who stayed here with his family during a film shoot in France. Offering 460 sqm of floor space and 400 sqm of living space, the property has been renovated throughout with new roofing, windows, heating and insulation. On three floors, it includes beautiful living and reception rooms, one featuring superb oak panelling and a black marble fireplace, a fully fitted and equipped kitchen, seven bedrooms with bathrooms and dressing rooms, a screening room and vaulted wine cellars. Terraces offer superb panoramic views of the park's meadows and centennial lime, oak, cedar and pine trees. The property also comprises a guest house offering about 160 sqm of floor space and 136 sqm of living space requiring fitting, a workshop, a garage, a pool house and a heated 14 x 3 metre swimming pool (hot-air pump) with a counter-current. A tennis court could be created in the enclosed grounds. Under 5 minutes from all amenities and 8 minutes from the station by car, 27 minutes from Porte de Saint Cloud, 30 minutes from la Défense, and near renowned schools (Hoche, St Jean Hulst, ND du Grandchamp, Buc etc) as well as Paris Saclay and the HEC campus.
