It was built about 1925 (oral tradition) for Mr Sarrat, director of EGN (Electricity and Gas North Company) It was sold in 1937 to FACEJ (Forges and electrical workshops of Jeumont) It then belonged to the Jeumont-Schneider Company (now Areva), which has housed their successive CEOs. This house was sold to an executive of Jeumont-Schneider Company. I bought it in 2003 and sold it in 2010. Here are some references on the Internet about Sarrat House (french only):

Here are two photos taken just after the end of the building. These pictures are included in the book « Ensembles and Details of Architecture » (Authors: H. Lafitte - Architecte S.A.D.G., J.
