Nancy, MEURTHE-ET-MOSELLE lorraine 54000 FR

Location

Near to Porte-Désilles (an 18th century triumphal arch and memorial), at one end of Cours-Léopold, a large rectangular, wooded square that gives shape to the entire town of Nancy. All the districts in the old town, Vieux-Nancy, are on a lower level to the east. Place-Stanislas, in its centre, bears outstanding witness to the architecture of the time of Louis XV. Whilst the district to the west, spanning the immediate parallel and perpendicular streets, is dotted with the town’s most sought-after villas and mansion houses.
Most of the town’s cultural and nocturnal events take place in the nearby Vieux-Nancy.
The town’s most well-known secondary schools and sixth form colleges are to be found in the local area.
Nancy train station, with fast 85-minute links to Paris, is just ten or so minutes away on foot.

Description

This vast flat is part of a superb, dressed stone building constructed in 1901, a period that greatly influenced the École-de-Nancy (School of Nancy). It spans 334 m² over three levels, the first taking up the entire second floor of the building, which comprises a total of two. The third level is laid out in the attic space.
The main facade faces a street leading to Cours-Léopold, whilst the other facade looks out over a small courtyard. Beyond are the gardens of a fairly low, neighbouring building, beautifully reflecting a contemporary style.
The street facade immediately stands out courtesy of its Art Nouveau style, typically featuring interlacing decoration, sculpted with foliage and flowers, above the main windows. The building stairway draws particular attention because of a decor, highly symbolic of the period with wrought iron railings adorned with gilt brass, floral motifs, a piece of corner furniture coming from the École-de-Nancy on the first floor landing and an atrium window designed by Joseph-Janin (particularly responsible for a stained-glass window of the Villa-Bergeret), on the intermediate landing facing the entrance door to the flat.
Bikes and pushchairs can be stored on the ground floor of the building.
This flat, together with just four others, is part of an immaculately kept, small, co-owned building, managed in a family manner.

The flat

The building’s wide, curving stairway has low steps, providing easy, untiring access to a little landing which leads to a single door, opening into the flat. An atrium window by Joseph-Janin, master glassmaker from the École-de-Nancy, can but catch the eye of all visitors as they make their way to the flat. The door opens then into a vestibule on the second floor of the building which is the first level in the flat.


First level
A wide vestibule provides access to two large reception rooms opposite the entrance door.
A large lounge, with the warm hues of its herringbone pattern parquet flooring, features a marble fireplace topped with a trumeau mirror. Three, small-paned, picture windows take up almost all of the wall facing the street. This unusual layout, letting copious amounts of light into the room, represents a most outstanding decorative feature, reflecting the Victorian style.
The rectangular dining room also looks out over the street from one of its ends via an elegant “bow window” where the two, very narrow, side openings take on an original “arrow-loop” shape. Just like the previous room, it features parquet flooring and a fireplace, with a trumeau mirror.
Facing these two reception rooms and, therefore, overlooking the small inner courtyard is a large, fitted kitchen, composed of two rooms, one with the fixtures and fittings of the actual kitchen and the other laid out as an informal eating area.

Second level
The curving stairway goes up to a long corridor which, on the road side, leads to two large rooms, the master bedroom and its bathroom as well as a leisure room, both featuring very pleasant decor with fireplaces and, in the leisure room, a “bow window” similar to that on the floor below, but this time the two lateral windows are taken up by floor-to-ceiling oak wood panelling concealing bookshelves. On the opposite side, overlooking the small inner courtyard, are a third bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom.
A terrace completes the living space.

Top floor
This level has the same layout as the floor below with a large corridor leading to three bedrooms as well as a shower room, on the road side, and another room, currently in use as a laundry room, on the small courtyard side. The corridor here is separated from the stairwell by a partition wall, the top two thirds of which are glazed whilst the bottom section is composed of solid wood.

The terrace

A 31 m² terrace on the second level overlooks the small, inner courtyard. Concealed from onlookers, it forms an additional outdoor area.

The cellar

A superbly laid out cellar, with a fairly constant temperature, is used for storing food and wine.

Our opinion

This flat is becomingly set in a building that superbly reflects the Art Nouveau style which was especially rich in Nancy. Its interior decor, more in the classical taste of the 19th century, radiates charm and serenity.
Modern-day home comforts are nevertheless present as are many facilities that make the daily way of life extremely pleasant.
Its private terrace also adds to the feeling of well-being experienced throughout these premises.
And the nearby sumptuous architecture of Place-Stanislas is therefore an everyday setting instead of one existing in dreams.
