In Paris, at the end of a private pedestrian street in the 11th arrondissement,
a 123 m² duplex flat with a 72 m² courtyard garden
Paris, PARIS paris 75011 FR


Between Oberkampf, Ménilmontant, rue du Chemin-Vert, boulevard Beaumarchais and boulevard des Filles-du-Calvaire, the Saint-Ambroise district enjoys a privileged location in the centre of the 11th arrondissement. In these small cobbled streets, students and artists gather on the terraces to savour the atmosphere of this fashionable district of the capital. The flat is located on the edge of the Marais and near the Place de la Bastille. Everything here is in walking distance, be it everyday services, places for outings with friends or cultural sites. The public transport network in the area also makes it easy to get around the capital.


The flat is located at the end of a private pedestrian lane, hidden from the street behind a double building. The remains of a 19th century convent, former workshops and green spaces planted with trees and flowers follow one another all the way to the courtyard garden enclosed by a wrought iron gate. Sheltered from any passers-by, the duplex offers on the garden level an entrance hall, a guest toilet, a kitchen, a large living/dining room and a bedroom comprising a shower room and a wardrobe. The interior staircase leads up to a landing serving a bathroom with toilet, a second bedroom and another room currently used as a workshop. The entire south-west facing facade of the flat is a genuine glass wall with a multitude of windows and doors overlooking the garden. Climbing vines and ivy also growing on the wall at the end of the cul-de-sac enliven the complex and create a plant-rich space.

The flat

The entrance hall features straight parquet flooring and double-glazed windows overlooking the garden courtyard, as well as a guest toilet with a small washbasin to the left. Past the kitchen, it leads directly to the living room located at an angle. Protected by a frosted glass sliding door, the kitchen adjoins a laundry room where the gas boiler has been installed. Again, a wall of windows and double glass doors opens the living room entirely onto the garden. Straight parquet floors and exposed beams lend a special charm to this room. Space-saving cupboards have been fitted under the interior staircase and a dining area has been created between the kitchen and the stairs. A bookcase frames the door to the right, which leads to the main bedroom with exposed beams and direct access to the outside. This is an independent master suite with a wardrobe and a shower room featuring a walk-in shower and a double washbasin. The wooden step staircase is lined with bookcases. The landing with exposed beams leads to a blue and white tiled bathroom with washbasin and toilet. Follow on the right the second room with parquet flooring and a workshop that could be transformed into an additional room. Both rooms also open onto and overlook the backyard. A cellar completes the property. The entire flat is south-west facing.

Accessed either through a double wrought iron gate at the end of the private driveway, or from the flat through the living room or master bedroom, the courtyard garden is paved with old cobblestones. Numerous plants and shrubs in earthen pots create and enliven different spaces. The surrounding green walls create a surprisingly bucolic atmosphere in the heart of the city. The backyard garden is for exclusive use in connection with the flat.

Our opinion

A country house in the heart of the city! This is the impression given by this duplex flat surrounded by greenery. In the calm of a private lane that ends there, behind the gates of the courtyard garden, family life or artist's life, everything is possible. Some refurbishment work will enable future buyers to implement their project in an unusual location, in the heart of the city but preserved from hustle and bustle.
