Close to a town center keenly sought-after for its unique lifestyle and culture and a convenient distance from Paris, this superb architect-designed property in the heart of the Chevreuse Valley is surrounded by nature and benefits from no facing neighbors. "La Clairière" is in an elevated setting near Bois d’Aigrefoin and benefits from direct access to the hiking trails. Designed by the renowned architect Marcel Roux, a partner of Le Corbusier, and built for an industrialist in the late 1950’s, it has retained much of its original style and is an excellent example of the modern movement inspired by the very popular Household Arts Show which during the period known as the “Trente Glorieuses” attracted over a million visitors… and revolutionized the traditional single-family home. In came extensive glazing, rough stone walls, spacious open interior areas such as this 68 sqm living/reception room with soaring ceilings, raised areas such as this TV lounge, and this complete over 45 sqm master suite. Innovative too were immense windows running up the entire height of the building, bringing inside-out and outside-in, yet allowing for a cozy atmosphere around the monumental stone fireplace. Ahead of its time, the property is fully south-facing to capitalize on the warmth of the sun. The bedroom area backs onto the hillside, and its largest bedroom could easily be transformed into a self-contained studio apartment. Significant extension could be achieved by adding a supplementary floor. The current owners added a conservatory/study and a wide terrace, and the property also includes an annex with a basement and garage which could be used as a caretaker's house.
