in the peace and quiet of a private road in the midst of Montmartre’s Abbesses district
This house is in the peace and quiet of a no-through road in the midst of Paris’ Abbesses district, just a stone’s throw from the square of the same name.
The Abbesses district stands on the south side of the hill or “Butte” in Montmartre, dominating all of Paris.
This district of the French capital, with its air of a cosmopolitan village, has attracted artists, musicians, actors for more than a century.
Montmartre’s Butte is characterised by its many flights of steps, cutting across paved streets and leading to the top where the Sacré-Coeur watches over Paris.
This lively sector abounds in shops.
The area has a good public transport system with underground lines 2, 4 and 12 as well as numerous bus routes.
An entrance hall on the ground floor, with storage cupboards, opens into a very bright, south-facing living room, under a glass atrium roof. A few steps go down to a dining area which faces an open-plan kitchen. A store-laundry-toilet area adjoins the kitchen.
A room at the end, behind sliding picture windows, could be used as a television room and a spare bedroom.
A stairway leads from the living room to the bedrooms on the two upper floors.
The first floor comprises two bedrooms and a shower room, with a toilet. On the second floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a toilet.
Facing the house, in the garden, a large covered area, with electricity and water laid on, could accommodate an extension of the house or even a self-contained flat as a door opens directly on to the private road.
This house reflects a resolutely modern style both inside and out. It was constructed in 2012. Extremely luminous and filled with sunlight, it is eco-responsible and has numerous storage areas.
Immediately to the left of the entrance hall, the living room is steeped in light through a large atrium with quadruple glazing. Spanning the entire 5 m high ceiling, it is self-cleaning and has four remote-controlled windows.
On the right of the entrance hall, a few steps bordered by storage cupboards lead to an eating area, able to take a large table and facing a fully-fitted, open-plan kitchen. These rooms precede a television room that could also be used as a spare bedroom.
A laundry room houses a double-flow Frisquet boiler and a toilet. This section with the house’s reception rooms has underfloor heating and polished concrete floors.
The stairway goes to a corridor which provides access to a child’s bedroom, the master bedroom, with a dressing room and to a shower room, with two wash-hand basins, a large shower and a toilet. This level could become one large master suite.
The stairway runs alongside a wall of vegetation, looking down on the lounge, to a second landing with a few steps leading to the second floor.
It comprises two children’s bedrooms and a bathroom with a toilet.
The external walls are constructed from “Thermibloc” thermal blocks, lime-rendered on the outside as well as the inside.
It has no load-bearing walls.
All the windows have triple glazing whilst the glass atrium roof has anti UV, quadruple glazing and is self-cleaning.
The house has a double-flow ventilation system which could easily be incorporated into an air-conditioning system.
It will soon be possible to recuperate rainwater which can then be used for toilets and washing machines.
Awaiting attention, the 150 m² plot of building land offers numerous possibilities.
Currently facing the house is a 50 m² covered area where water and electricity are laid on. It has a door providing access to the private road.
This area could be connected to the house or be converted into a self-contained flat.
Fluidity takes pride of place in this contemporary house: that of light, notably flooding in through the large, glass atrium roof as well as that of the layout of the areas in relation to one another courtesy of the subtle use of different levels. And lastly, the fluidity of materials, with pure lines and polished concrete appearing to make the way of life of the family living here extremely airy. A covered area in the courtyard-garden, building land spanning the same surface area as the house, could provide ideas for future use. This property is in a very good state of repair and the district of Montmartre is well-known.
