For sale: 1960s-designed house in Bois-le-Roy near Paris, France

Bois1

The pictures of this 1960s-designed house in Bois-le-Roy near Paris, France say it all really – my jaw dropped when I saw it.

The house was designed by French architect Claude Parent, winning awards aplenty, including being selected as a worldwide architectural masterpiece by the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Arts in 1983. We love that curved concrete roof, which is clad in copper, as well as that wood, glass and concrete finish for the house. Part space age, part mid-century, totally stunning.


Bois2

Inside you get bright split-level living space, a double high ceiling
(curves permitting), three bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom, a mezzanine
reception / study area and if you feel energetic, a tennis court.

If our Lotto numbers come up, we’ll be buying it this weekend. Just as
long as we win enough to pay the £1,170,000 asking price. Check out the
extra photos at the website, well worth your time.
