Description

In the midst of Paris’ 12th arrondissement, in a quiet, residential street, near to Daumesnil (lines 6 and 8) and Michel-Bizot (line 8) underground stations. A great many shops are in the immediate proximity.
The immaculately kept, 1925 building reflects a style of architecture somewhere between that of Art Nouveau and Art Deco. It has an inner wooded courtyard, a flat for the live-in caretaker and an area for storing bicycles as well as a lift. This 2-storey flat, spanning 103 m² of living space measured in accordance with the French Carrez law, is at the top of the building, on the 6th and 7th floors. The main level comprises an entrance hall, an open-plan lounge and dining room, a kitchen big enough to take an eating area, two bedrooms and a bathroom with a toilet. A spiral stairway goes up to the floor above with its slightly sloping ceilings in a bedroom and a study. This flat still has numerous original features such as herringbone parquet flooring, fireplaces enhanced with trumeaux, cornices and doors. Facing south-west over a private street, it is superbly quiet and extremely bright (top floors). This flat does however need some works to bring it in line with prevailing tastes.

The building

The building was constructed in 1925 by architect Jérôme-Bellat. This was one of his first big projects, prior to leaving his much more visible mark over by Porte-de-Champerret. Its brick facades, inlaid with stone adorned with plant and lion head decoration, are a cross between the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. The building is immaculately kept and features an inner wooded courtyard, reached via an elegant vestibule and leading to all the stairwells. It also has a live-in caretaker, a bicycle storage area and a lift.

The flat

This flat is laid out at the top of the building, on the 6th and 7th floors, and spans a surface area of 103 m², measured in accordance with the French Carrez law. There are but two flats per floor. Once a middle-class flat, it has been linked via a stairwell to what was three maid’s bedrooms, converted in accordance with good trade practices. The main level comprises an entrance hall, an open-plan lounge and dining room, a kitchen big enough to take an eating area, two bedrooms and a bathroom with a toilet. A spiral stairway goes up to the floor above with its slightly sloping ceilings in a bedroom and a study (a dressing room could be created). This flat still has numerous original features such as herringbone parquet flooring in the lounge and strip pattern parquet flooring in the other rooms, fireplaces enhanced with trumeaux, cornices and doors. Facing south-west over a private street, it is superbly quiet and extremely bright (top floors). This flat does however need some works to bring it in line with prevailing tastes. It also comes with a cellar.

Our opinion

With its numerous shops and beautiful buildings, this is a lively district which exudes a typically Parisian art of living. Both the building and the flat reflect similar airs, one of unpretentious refinement with just a touch of elegance, creating a wonderful timelessness. The layout of the rooms is especially outstanding and easy to move around, with an independent section upstairs. Modernisation works are required but the bases are there as regards spaciousness and architectural features. New owners will also appreciate its many sought-after assets including absolute peace and quiet, luminosity as well as its top floor position.
