This incredible house of 350 m² with corten steel facade realized by the renowned architect Marc Held, perched on its pilings, feet in the water of its pond of 5.000 m² is discreetly nestled in the heart of a private park of more than 2 hectares in the heart of Gif sur Yvette.

From the external staircase that allows entry into this spectacular house, the water of the pond is already present under the first steps. The entrance reveals a spacious living room to ceiling steel frame, a height of more than 6 meters, windows overlooking the terrace and infinity pool, or its grand glass patio 8 meters from above. The open kitchen overlooks this beautiful living space, it has a rear kitchen on the lower level. The sleeping area is located on an upper plateau, without actually being a floor, it consists of four rooms with balcony that share two bathrooms. One of the rooms has a lower level for an office or dressing room.
A third plateau is lit by dome of light, this space arranged in library allows an access to the mezzanine which overhangs the room of life, and to the small terrace located at the top of the jacuzzi. This unique creation in the world, with the appearance of a failed ocean liner, is an architectural feat, with an earth-colored, oxidized facade that blends deliciously with its water environment and tall, century-old trees. Utopia deserves a nice renovation to allow him to continue to write his prodigious biography after obtaining a prize from the Buildings of France.

A second caretaker’s house of 110 sqm, on the edge of the Yvette, completes this extraordinary property.
