In Bagnolet, on the outskirts of the area known as Les Lilas, on the site of a former medal factory, dating from the 19th century, and surrounded by old orchards. Bagnolet was long a farming village, a garden where inhabitants of the French capital took a stroll on Sundays. When Haussmann reorganised said capital, a part of the numerous evicted Parisians took refuge in this district. Consequently, a group of qualified workers, notably tailors, cabinetmakers and experienced craftsmen settled and made their mark in Bagnolet.
Porte-des-Lilas and Mairie-des-Lilas underground stations, just 10 minutes away on foot, provide 20 minute links with the centre of Paris (line 11 Mairie-des-Lilas/Châtelet). The T3 line of the tramway and Adrienne-Bolland or Porte-des-Lilas underground stations provide north/south access to Paris.
This south-facing garden forms the very private centre of the house. Landscaped in a Japanese style with rock gardens, pebbles and a Japanese lawn, it is planted with variegated holly and a mauve wisteria as well as maple, cedar and sycamore trees. At the end, on the right-hand side, the swimming pool, designed to resemble an ornamental pool, is concealed under wooden flooring in the autumn.
This house set out around an unoverlooked, south-facing, Japanese-style garden with its swimming pool would be ideal for an artist seeking peace and quiet as well as space and light. A family with children looking for independence could live in harmony, given the spaces on offer and the layout of the premises.
This house, built of wood, glass and metal including stone, plants and water, is within 200 m of the French capital as the crow flies.
