A 167 m² house, in a private alleyway,
on the edge of Montsouris Park in Paris’ 14th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75014 FR


Montsouris Park is one of Paris’ landscaped witnesses of the Second Empire, created by Alphonse-Alphand, Baron-Haussmann’s great gardener. This delightful district is marked by a neighbourhood comprising late 19th century detached houses and workshop-buildings dating from the 1920’s, with famous residents such as Foujita, Georges-Braque and Amédée-Ozenfant. Local surroundings include such convivial places as famous cafés and restaurants.
Just a stone’s throw from schools, food shops and Jourdan market.
The tramway, the underground and the RER train line from Porte-d'Orléans and Cité-Universitaire stations make it easy to travel all around Paris.


This sober-looking residence, in a private, secure street, with typical detached houses and workshops, dates from between 1910 and 1920. Its light-coloured brick facade features large picture windows which are either topped with marked lintels or are semi-circular. Facing east and south, it has the benefit of the peace and quiet of the private road as well as views of the Parisian sky and the park landscape. A wooden entrance door opens into a large, 50 m² lounge that opens on to a patio, a spacious kitchen and a laundry room. The basement comprises a cellar and a sauna. A flight of white-tinted wooden stairs then goes up to the 1st and 2nd floors. A first floor veranda or conservatory could be used as a study. On the same landing are a bathroom and a vast bright bedroom with two windows, once two bedrooms. The master bedroom is on the top floor. It, too, is filled with natural light and features a dressing room and a bathroom, with an Italian-style shower. The attic space on the 3rd floor has already been granted a building permit for conversion purposes. There is a private car parking space outside the house.

Space and light in a 1920’s house

A delightful alleyway, entrance gates with a security system and a parking space are but some of this house’s advantages. Planters attached to the facade await spring flowers.

Ground floor
A sober entrance door features diamond-shaped panels. It opens initially into a vast, 39 m² reception area, with white walls and exotic wood parquet flooring under a ceiling almost 3 m high. It precedes an 11 m² dining room or pleasant work room that opens on to a 12 m² patio, where seating has been set out. Sliding patio doors and a roof atrium let copious amounts of light into a 14 m², modern fitted kitchen. A pantry is laid out as a laundry room.
A luminous flight of white-tinted wooden stairs, with white wrought iron railings goes to the upper floors.

A spacious, 14 m² cellar can be used for family requirements or for laying down wine. A sauna will appeal to enthusiasts.
First floor
The landing provides access to a 22 m² bedroom, illuminated via two large windows, which could be converted into two separate bedrooms. Cupboards, a desk and a storage space leave room for a relaxation area. A bathroom, with its blue and green ceramic tiles, adjoins the bedroom. On the same landing below an atrium is a 19 m² conservatory, with white brick walls, which could be used as a study and games room.
Second floor
A vast, 17 m² bedroom, with carpet, has white walls. Picture windows look out between neighbouring buildings at the sky and, as on the first floor, towards the foliage of the park. It adjoins a 5 m² dressing room and a modern bathroom, featuring black and beige ceramic tiles as well as an Italian-style shower.
The attic, under its insulated roof, awaits conversion. The building permit granted means that it can be converted into additional communal or private living areas.

Our opinion

The stairway, with thin bar railings, acts as a light well and says much about the house. Every area from the patio to the conservatory, the vast reception room, with its supporting pillar, and the bathroom, with its combination of ceramic tiles, vies for originality. Contemporary lines formed, for instance, by the framework of the large atria blend beautifully with older features, including that of a porthole. Authorisation to convert the attic space has been granted. Montsouris Park is at the end of the private villa. Settling here would quite simply be confirming the previous choice of many shrewd artists and personalities.
