Maison dans le parc ou jardin public


Explanation:
There is a famous restaurant in New York called Tavern on the Green. It is in the middle of Central Park. One of the definitios of "green" in the OED is as follows:
"A piece of public or common grassy land, especially in the centre of a village: a house overlooking the green."
I know these are common in New England in the US. More context would be helpful, but I am fairly certain that it cannot be translated as "maison de campagne" as it might be right in the middle of town!
