A 392 m² house, its indoor patio and its terrace
in a former mirror factory near Place-de-la-Nation


Avenue-Philippe-Auguste, in Paris’ 11th arrondissement, leads on to Place-de-la-Nation. It is in the district known as Sainte-Marguerite, in the south-east of the arrondissement, and is named after Philippe-Auguste, King of France from 1180 to 1223; his statue stands on one of the Trône barrier columns. The nearest underground station is Nation, on lines 2, 6, 1 and 9 as well as the RER train line A. Bus routes include 76, 56, 86 and 57, which spread widely around the French capital. There are bike rental and car share points nearby. Cinemas and theatres can be added to the numerous first-class food shops that are to be found locally.


This house is accessed via a communal wooded courtyard, protected by an electronic keypad security system. Standing in peaceful surroundings, the house faces south. It is set out around an inner patio, with two separate entrances. The house comprises 8 rooms, 6 of which are bedrooms. A quiet, suntrap, 17 m² terrace is on the top floor, connected to a summer kitchen.

The house

Lower Level 1
The main entrance door opens into a lobby which provides access to the lower level and, thus, forms an independent access. Its chestnut wood stairway leads to a landing that provides access to two rooms which face the patio and are naturally illuminated via openings. The other side houses a large area comprising two rooms used as offices. A wine cellar and a boiler room are also on this level. The central open patio which communicates with the rest of the house extends up to the 10 m high glass roof. A second quarter-turning stairway provides access to the ground floor.
First level
The house’s main metal and chestnut wood stairway, facing the entrance door, goes upstairs where it is extended and comprises the railings around the central patio. On the left-hand side are a storeroom and an open-plan kitchen with its bar opening on to an eating area as well as a first 78 m² living room with a fireplace. The kitchen floor is tiled and a window looks out on to the courtyard planted, amongst other things, with olive trees, bamboo, lilac and rose bushes. On the other side to the right is a study area set out in an alcove illuminated via three windows. This is followed by two bedrooms with dressing rooms and sharing a bathroom with a toilet as well as a laundry room.
Top floor
On the left-hand side, a summer kitchen and a second 68 m² lounge, the fireplace of which could be reinstated as the flue was not removed. A few steps go up to the quiet, suntrap terrace. In the other section, a bedroom illuminated by windows and looking out over the courtyard has a dressing room and a bathroom. Next comes a second bedroom with a dressing room and a shower room, followed by a cupboard and a separate toilet. All the floors in the house feature light-coloured, strip pattern chestnut wood flooring. The bathrooms, toilets and the kitchen are tiled. There are numerous built-in cupboards, cloakrooms and storage areas as on the other floors of the house.
The 17 m² terrace faces south-west. It is very peaceful and not immediately overlooked. Six guests can be seated around a table. It could, however, easily be extended by taking space from the second lounge.

Our opinion

Light appears to be the trademark of this old mirror factory, now a delightful residence, steeped in sunlight and tranquillity in the centre of Paris. It will appeal to those seeking airiness and spaciousness, inside and out and would be ideal for self-employed professionals wanting to work from home courtesy of the two separate entrances. It would also suit families who like to gather around a fireplace during the winter or sunbathe on the terrace in clement weather. With its elegant, wood and metal balcony corridors, the house also strangely evokes an ocean liner, exuding a soothing atmosphere for its passengers throughout stationary, dreamy cruises.
