a large sunny balcony, in Paris’ 19th arrondissement
This residence, in a district known as “Amérique”, stands in the midst of a “little bit of countryside” composed of several streets predominantly featuring houses. Buttes-Chaumont Park, 24 hectares of green open space, is 10 minutes’ walk away. The nearest underground station, 200 m away, is Télégraphe on line 11, which provides 20-minute links to Châtelet. Bus routes 48 and 60 as well as route 75 which is to be extended as far as Panthéon and the Robert-Debré tram stop on line T3b, are all close to hand. The recently renovated Place-des-Fêtes is home to a market on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Amongst other amenities and shops, there are a supermarket, a frozen food shop, a chemist and a post office. Numerous good schools such as the “Living School” are not far away.
A first door opens into the residence’s entrance lobby. Straight in front, an oak wood stairway with cleverly integrated lighting. A garage, on the left-hand side, can take a medium-sized car. A room, on the right-hand side, could be used as a storage room. At the end of the corridor, a laundry room opens on to the 8 m² courtyard, with a lean-to cleverly concealing a machine room.
The hall area leads, right, to a toilet, with a window. A separate kitchen, at the end, is lined with coloured ceramic tiles and illuminated via windows overlooking the courtyard. It precedes a 26 m², bright living room, with a lounge section featuring a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf, and an eating area. It is naturally illuminated via two east-facing picture windows which let in copious amount of sunlight.
The hall area provides access to a first bedroom with cupboards and a built-in desk. The picture window looks out at the sky. A dressing room is on the right-hand side. Straight on, a second bedroom has built-in cupboards. The floor is covered with light-coloured oak wood parquet flooring laid in a strip pattern. It is followed by a fully tiled bathroom, with a bath and a window overlooking the courtyard.
On the left-hand side is a shower room, with a shower and a wash-hand basin. It precedes a third bedroom, naturally illuminated by a French window opening on to a balcony. These rooms are followed by a fourth bedroom that also opens on to the balcony. The floor is covered with light-coloured oak wood parquet flooring. Straight on, a separate toilet is illuminated by a skylight and a study could be transformed into a dressing room or even a shower room as the plumbing is already laid on.
If Paris was in the country there would be no criticisms to be made. And such is somewhat the case for this house, set amongst the others in a very quiet paved street where vegetation appears to come out of the facades. The forever warm, 1950’s style has left here an extremely beautiful, well-structured oak wood stairway. The living areas can be reorganised over the four levels in accordance with the new owners’ requirements and tastes. If by any chance greenery is found to be lacking, Buttes-Chaumont Park is but a stone’s throw away.
