in Saint-Mandé on the edge of Vincennes Wood and Paris
Saint-Mandé is a town in the Val-de-Marne department, nestling between Paris’ 12th arrondissement and Vincennes Wood, which owes its name to the little medieval chapel of Saint-Maudez, no longer in existence. It was as of the French Revolution that the village, with just a few hundred inhabitants, began to develop and is now much appreciated by those living in the Ile-de-France region for being near and yet far from the French capital. On the edge of Vincennes Wood and less than a kilometre from Paris, this 1930’s house stands in a quiet, residential street near to Vilmorin Gardens. The market is just a 5-minute walk, whilst lines 1 and 8 of the Parisian underground are but 10 minutes away.
The second hall stairway goes up to an upper floor housing a main living area spanning a surface area of 27 m². This through room is steeped in light courtesy of two floor-to-ceiling French windows, giving direct access to the south-facing terrace and garden, spanning a surface area 48 m². A wood-burning stove adds a touch of comfort to this convivial area, looking out over the natural setting.
The first floor includes two bedrooms, respectively spanning 12 and 9 m². Fitted with storage spaces, they are laid out around a bathroom, with a window. The top floor, peacefully isolated from the rest of the house, spans a surface area of almost 26 m². It comprises the house’s main bedroom which adjoins a private bathroom, looking out over the garden. The corner bath is fitted with massage jets for enhancing those relaxing moments. Further on is a separate toilet.
Saint-Mandé, laid out between the city and the wood, is an attractive town in the Parisian region. Families, students and the younger working population are attracted throughout the region by its efficient transport system and its neo-classical charm, combined with modern infrastructures. Several centuries of history are engraved here in the stone. The same can be said for this townhouse, dating from the Roaring Twenties, easily recognisable by its typical millstone grit facade. Its living areas are easy to move around. The layout has been designed to give its residents comfort and privacy. The generously high ceilings give the rooms further depth. This is a welcoming, well thought out family home in a reasonably-sized commune.
