What’s the new french villa on the market?
The new French mansion, dubbed the Villa d’Orleans, was just unveiled on Sunday by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Ministre de l’Affaires de l’) and is the latest in a line of luxury properties that have sprung up across France in the last few years.
According to the official website of the French government, the villa was designed by architect Pierre-Joseph Liguori and has “a private courtyard and gardens”, which are designed to “enhance privacy and security”.
The project will reportedly have an estimated price tag of “around 30 million euros”, making it one of the priciest luxury properties ever constructed.
According to The Times, the project is being designed by the Paris-based architectural firm of Jules Cousteau and will be constructed in collaboration with the French architecture firm of La Ligue de ligne, which has also recently won the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize.
The villa is expected to come with a large number of apartments, including five bedrooms, six bathrooms and an outdoor pool.
The villa’s interior is being constructed by the architect of La Villa D’Orlies.
The project is expected also to include a cinema and “a leisure area with terraces, a swimming pool, a spa, a fitness center and a garden”.
Although the villas interior will feature a number of bedrooms, the plan calls for the property to be a mix of studios, living and leisure spaces.
It is hoped that the villacraft will not only help improve the environment in the French capital, but also the environment around Paris, as the villager will be able to “take part in a lot of green space”.
According the official site, the French property will include a “private courtyard and a large garden with a swimming lake, a pool, spa, fitness center, a dining area, a terrace, a cinema, a restaurant, a theatre and a gallery”.
While the villay is currently only a concept, the plans have sparked controversy over the past year.
In April, French authorities ordered that the home be demolished, saying it “violates the rights of the environment”.
In March, France’s Environment Ministry announced it would be closing its Paris-area offices in response to the plans, stating the decision was made because the project “has no positive impact on the environment” and the “project is being undertaken in an unbalanced way” in “the most unequal and discriminatory manner”.
Last year, a report published by French environmental group BAF claimed that the proposed villa, which is estimated to cost “at least” 30 million Euros, would have “severe negative consequences” for the Parisian environment.
