This flat is between the heights of the Marais district and the Oberkampf area known for its streets abounding in small courtyards and little known passageways, resulting from the districts’ past industrial and craft activities.
Today, one of the main roads in Paris’ 11th arrondissement, Boulevard-Voltaire, called Prince-Eugène when it was created in 1857, takes its current name from French writer François-Marie-Arouet, known as Voltaire (1694-1778). This long Haussmannian style avenue was inaugurated by Emperor Napoleon III on 7 December 1862. Filles-du-Calvaire, Oberkampf and Saint-Ambroise underground stations are within easy walking distance.
Paris’ 11th arrondissement is not perhaps the most famous or the most chic of the French capital. It is, however, one of the liveliest and the most emblematic of old and, even, today’s Paris. Nestling in an early 20th century, dressed stone building, this flat can be reached by crossing a paved courtyard, steeped in serenity and abounding in vegetation. The stairway, freshly repainted in hues of taupe-grey, provides access to this property laid out on the top three floors of the building. The right-hand door on the fourth floor opens into a 2-roomed flat. The entrance hall leads to a spacious dining room which precedes two bedrooms, with parquet flooring, as well as a separate kitchen, with terracotta floor tiles, and a separate toilet. A 2-storey, 5-roomed flat takes up the next two floors. An entrance hall opens, right, into a living room, with herringbone pattern parquet flooring, one of the Haussmannian interior features. A marble fireplace in the middle of the living room will create a warm atmosphere on winter evenings. Straight on from the entrance hall are a fitted kitchen, with terracotta floor tiles, and a separate toilet. A finely decorated, spiral stairway goes up from the living room to the top floor which comprises four bedrooms. Wide windows on each level let in copious amounts of natural light which enhances the old features. The immediate surroundings are extremely quiet.
Boulevard-Voltaire is indeed worthy of bearing the name of one of the French writers from the Age of Reasoning who earned France first place in what Elisabeth-Badinter called the “Les Passions Intellectuelles”. It is one of the longest Haussmannian style streets and is the most architecturally homogeneous one in Paris. Protection by the facade building and a courtyard, where vegetation thrives, provides residents with all advantages along one of the French capital’s liveliest streets, between République and Nation underground stations. The most fashionable of convivial places abound. This property, on the top three floors of the building, with its self-contained flat on the 4th floor and its 2-storey flat on the 5th and 6th floors, is ideally suited to a multitude of layouts. It will not only appeal to an investor but also to a family who could reorganise the interiors to suit their needs; preserving, of course, the old decorative features.
