It was under the reign of Louis XIV that Marly-le-Roi gained recognition with the construction of its chateau, a peaceful retreat for the King who wished to escape the turmoil of Versailles. “I had Versailles built for my court, the Trianon for my family and Marly for my friends“ he said. Sadly the chateau was abandoned by his descendents and finally demolished during the First Empire. This remarkable 17th century property in the heart of the old village is all the more significant as it bears witness to this illustrious period in Marly-le Roi ’s historic past. Set in about 825 sqm of grounds, it offers 300 sqm of elegant and refined living space oozing with period charm and featuring Versailles-style and Herringbone parquet flooring and fireplaces. Boasting a magnificent central staircase, it includes beautiful reception rooms opening onto a superb terrace, and four bedrooms. There is huge further potential to fully exploit. The gardens feature a magnificent greenhouse, and are planted with palm trees as well as a very old wisteria. With a garage. The property is very peaceful yet a convenient distance from the shops and amenities.
