Jean-Baptiste Colbert, minister of Louis XIV, acquired the estate in 1670 and called on the greatest artists of his time for his estate at Sceaux. André Le Nôtre designed the gardens by remodeling the rugged relief of the site, gardens to which La Quintinie, the king’s gardener, added an orchard and vegetable patch. The orangery was built by Jules-Hardouin Mansart.
