This spacious, split level family home, built by an architect in 1980 was conceived and has been enhanced to meet multiple needs with no work required. Independent access for a relative or an au pair with their own living and dining area ? Yes. Separate space for teenagers ? Yes. Possibility to increase to 6 bedrooms? Yes. Add to this a well-preserved garden with patios front and rear, mature trees, a cobbled driveway with off-street parking for several cars, a garage (currently used as a shed), firewood storage, recently cleaned pitched roof and high-speed internet with easy access to Paris and the overall package is a compelling one.
Chavenay is a small village 35 km West of Central Paris (<30km to La Défense) popular with some English speaking ex-pats due to its location on the bus routes for the international schools in Saint Germain-en-Laye (just 11km away). The majority of the village’s homes were built from the locally quarried stone as was the communal wash house which still stands today behind the 13th century Eglise de Saint Pierre. Residents enjoy its calm, country oriented pursuits (think happy, muddy dogs, cycling, horse riding and 2 golf courses) and access to Paris by car or by train from nearby Saint Germain en Laye (RER A), Saint Nom la Bretèche (Train L to Saint Lazare) or Plaisir Grignon (Train N to Montparnasse). The village has a local shop, bakery and pharmacy and for the weekly shop it’s just a 10mn drive to Plaisir. For some history, you are only 20 minutes from the extraordinary architectural heritage sites of Versailles and Saint Germain en Laye.
Schools: In Chavenay itself there are: 2 crèches, 1 public nursery and primary school (180 children in total). Public secondary school is at Collège Jean Monnet in Feucherolles (7 min drive) and Lycée Sonia Delaunay in Villepreux (also 7 min drive). Many children from Chavenay attend French or International private schools in Saint Germain en Laye or Versailles and are well served by school buses.
