Detailed description

Built on commission by Pierre Petit, part of whose original work was exhibited at the 1937 Paris Universal Exhibition on the theme of "Hunting and Fishing Rendezvous", this house encompasses four floors and a basement and offers almost 460 m² of living space.

° The monumental double main door reveals a sumptuous entrance, entirely frescoed over a 6m height. From this entrance, we enter the lounge/bar on the right, which still has all its original decoration (bar covered in coloured glass tubes, coloured stucco wall units by Jean René Debarre, multi-effect backlighting, etc.), and several rooms that were once used for service purposes wich still have their original furnishings.

° On the left is the splendid spiral staircase leading to the large living room (53m²) on the 1st floor, also with its original Art Deco furniture, abundantly lit by the bay windows giving access to the vast half-moon terrace overlooking the park, the pond and its fountain, the rose garden and the gardens.

Also on this level are :
- a delightful small lounge with its private terrace, separated from the living room by two stained glass double doors designed by Jean Joseph Kef Ray.
- the kitchen and pantry.

° A suspended staircase, real masterpiece, leads to the second level where takes place :
- the billiard room.
- 3 bedrooms, including the 45m² master suite (with bathroom, dressing room and 30m² private terrace), two further bathrooms, a dressing room and a separate WC.

° At least, on the third and top floor, takes place a vast landing area and three bedrooms, all with their own distinctive mosaic floors in typical Art Deco style.

This exceptional property offers 3.5 ha of enclosed parklands completely out of sight, with a tennis court (area to be renovated), two horse stalls and a career, a secure double garage, a vegetable garden and its authentic period theatre inspired by Louis Lumière (with revolving stage and original decorations - to be renovated).

The many details of the original adornment, furniture and lighting (polished stucco walls, glass or marble mosaic floors, oak parquet flooring, translucent concrete, stained glass windows, eglomised glass, etc.) are in pristine state of conservation, and most of them are referenced (look book of the Universal Exhibition, many works signed and numbered).
