Very near to Michel-Bizot underground station in Paris’ 12th arrondissement,
a 51 m² Haussmannian flat with a balcony running alongside
Paris, PARIS paris 75012 FR


Inhabitants of the Bel-Air district, where Avenue-Daumesnil and Avenue-du-Général-Michel-Bizot meet, enjoy a pleasant place to live between the Hausmannian facades and the tree-lined service roads. They can take advantage of numerous first-class shops, several nearby schools and a well-stocked market. A little further away, the city gate of Porte-Dorée and its outstanding palace, one of the most representative of the Art Deco style, Vincennes Wood and Daumesnil Lake are all ideal places for taking a stroll on a Sunday. This district has a good public transport network courtesy of Michel-Bizot (line 8) underground station, numerous bus routes and, a little further away, the T3 tram line.


This property, in a shopping district of Paris’ 12th arrondissement, is located on the fifth floor of a Haussmannian building. A lift goes up to this recently renovated, extremely bright, 51 m² flat. A living room and a bedroom, on the road side, open via several French windows on to a balcony running alongside the flat. On the courtyard side are a fitted kitchen, a second bedroom, a shower room, with an Italian shower, and a separate toilet. All the floors are still laid with the original parquet flooring which has been well-maintained. The ceilings are enhanced with cornices as those in flats built in the 19th century often were.

The flat

This 51 m² flat is laid out behind double doors in a star shape. A favourite amongst architects, this layout makes it possible to optimise space. The central entrance hall therefore provides access to every room. At the end, a south-east facing balcony, running alongside with finely wrought iron railings, provides access to a living room and a bedroom. A Prussian wood-burning stove, a real work of art, takes pride of place in the lounge. Set in the wall, fitted with a closing mechanism to keep the heat in and topped with a shelf, this finely wrought object can also be used as a plate-warmer. The ceiling is enhanced with refined stucco decoration. The first bedroom, featuring a white marble fireplace, could also be used as a study, a library or a dining room.
On the courtyard side is a fully fitted kitchen. A second bedroom, a shower room, with an Italian shower, and a separate toilet, complete this flat. First-class renovation works made it possible to preserve numerous original decorative features, starting with the continuous strip pattern parquet flooring, the cornices, fashionable during the Second Empire, and the old doors. All the windows are recent. The openings on the road side have acoustic double glazing for improved sound-proofing.

Our opinion

This flat, on a level with Parisian rooftops, is steeped in copious amounts of daylight and has an unobstructed view of the boulevards. One of the major assets of this typical 19th century flat is, without doubt, the long, narrow, south-east facing balcony running alongside it. This is a delightful place for taking breakfast, whilst listening to the gentle hum of the city below. This flat will immediately appeal to visitors. Its simple but clever layout, its luminosity and its wonderful location between Place-de-la-Nation and Vincennes Wood, make it an unspoilt and comfortable home. The proximity of numerous food shops can but be a bonus.
