Iconic California Architecture in the North of France
Also called Villa Neutra, this modern house was built in 1969 for the industrialist Marcel Delcourt, an entrepreneur from the North (CEO of 3 Suisses from 1948 to 1988). Designed by the American architect Richard Neutra, in collaboration with his son Dion Neutra and his partner Bruno Honegger, this house is the architect’s only project in France and the last work of his career. The property, located near the famous Villa Cavrois (Robert Mallet-Stevens), has been listed as a Historic Monument since 2000.
At the heart of a 7,300 m² wooded park, an exceptional surface area for this location, the house has a living area of 370 m² on 2 levels.
The ground floor accommodates an entrance and a vast living space all in space of approximately 130 m², including a living room and a dining room opening on the park and two terraces, and an office space. A kitchen, a parental suite with bedroom, bathroom and dressing room, and a bedroom with shower room complete this level. A beautiful right-angled staircase leads to a large landing with storage space serving four bedrooms, three of which have a terrace, and two bathrooms.
The property also includes a triple garage and a basement.
Some of the interior fittings such as the staircase, the bookcases and the living room furniture were designed by Richard Neutra and his partner Bruno Honegger.
The house is located in the city center of Croix, 20 minutes from the center of Lille by car or public transport (metro station 100 meters from the property – Gare Lille Flandres 16 minutes by metro) and benefits from a privileged environment with all shops and amenities.
