appartments for sale in paris - oberkampf - on the edge of the marais district

A flat with a terrace on the top floor of an old workshop
in the area known as Oberkampf on the edge of the Marais district

Paris, PARIS ile-de-france 75011 FR


Rue-de-la-Folie-Méricourt is named after a proprietor called Marcaut, which became Moricaud and then “Méricourt”, who owned a folly, that is to say a country house there. This road was once the main street in the hamlet of Popincourt.
It is now a long quiet thoroughfare in the Oberkampf district, just a stone’s throw from the lively Place-de-la-République. This section of Paris’ 11th arrondissement gives the impression of being a lively, working-class village within the city. It is also a mecca for Parisian culture with numerous theatres, art cinemas and concert halls. It is a great place to live, especially in the summer when cafés and restaurants use their terraces. Epicureans will love its organic and numerous good food shops.


This flat is reached from the street via one of Paris’ old stone buildings, the entrance to which is protected by a numerical keypad security system. Once through the paved entrance hall and a small courtyard, a second door, again protected by a numerical keypad security system, opens into a corridor featuring small paving stones. It provides access to an inner, wooded and mossy courtyard. This is surrounded by workshop style buildings which once housed a badge factory. A metal and wood stairway goes up to the three levels. This flat is on the second and top floor. Spanning a floor surface area of 140 m², it comprises a living room, with a kitchen which opens on to a terrace, three large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and a study.

The flat

A grey-painted metal door opens into an entrance hall, lined with bookshelves. The large living room, under the roofs, features half-timbering, beams and parquet flooring, all painted white. A large picture window and skylights let in copious amounts of daylight. This room is lined with cupboards and bookshelves. A kitchen, discreetly fitted with kitchen units, takes up the back wall. The living room opens on to the terrace. A first bedroom, on the left-hand side, has a dressing room, a shower room and a toilet. A study has been laid out on the mezzanine. A picture window opens on to the terrace.
A second bedroom behind the living room has its own bathroom and toilet. Its windows look out over the courtyard. The mezzanine can be used as a sleeping or a study area.
A lobby on the right-hand side of the living room leads to a guest toilet and a room overlooking the courtyard, ideal as a study or an additional bedroom, as well as to a third bedroom. The latter, with its own bathroom and toilet, also opens on to the terrace.

The terrace

The rectangular terrace, spanning a surface area of 19 m² with wood flooring, is soberly decorated with plants. It can be reached via the living room and two of the bedrooms.

Our opinion

The transformation of former workshops into town-centre flats makes for living areas which are always interesting aesthetically speaking and which are often more comfortable than a traditional home. Such is the case here, in this central, lively and convivial district. Courtesy of the terrace and the large picture windows in the three rooms opening on to it, the separation between the inside and the outside is somewhat blurred. The mezzanines have the same effect on the levels. The areas are both self-contained and adjoining, just as families like them. This blend of the old with the contemporary is steeped in light.
