between Village-Jourdain and Buttes-Chaumont Park
Ideally located between the district known as Village-Jourdain and Buttes-Chaumont Park.
The 25-ha park forms an area highly sought-after by all generations of townsfolk. All around this verdant oasis in the midst of the town, Haussmannian buildings are to be found near to the narrow, paved streets of the old working-class districts. Everywhere, terraces are frequented by artists and students as well as numerous families. The cultural life is also particularly rich courtesy of Centquatre cultural centre, Villette theatre and Paris’ National Conservatory of Music and Dance. Schools are numerous as are sports facilities particularly those devoted to young children. The district around Buttes-Chaumont Park is classified as a green zone. An authentic Parisian district, Village-Jourdain is especially sought-after for its peaceful way of life and its numerous shops. Pyrénées (line 11) and Botzaris (line 7 bis) underground stations.
The floor surface area is laid out as a 44 m² reception room, with a kitchen opening into a dining room and a lounge-library. A first bedroom has a bathroom with a bath, a walk-in shower and a sauna. A second bedroom is converted into a studio flat, fitted with a shower room and a toilet, which could have independent access if so required. A vast wardrobe as well as numerous cupboards complete the layout of these premises.
The co-owned building
The building is constructed around a T-shaped passageway, on to which open wooded courtyards and terraces. On the road side are old workmen’s cottages; around the passage way, outbuildings and garages have been converted into open-plan flats and small houses.
This 97 m² flat has two independent entrances: the first on the road side and the second off the co-owned property’s passageway. The reception room, spanning 44 m² and opening on to the verdant courtyard on the south side, is separated into several areas: first of all, a dining room next to a fully fitted, open-plan kitchen, then a lounge, where a wardrobe and a vast bookshelf unit take up an entire wall. Light floods in via wide picture windows and via skylights in the ceiling. The floors are covered with octagonal terracotta tiles. The main bedroom opens on to a terrace and has a bathroom, with a walk-in shower, a free-standing, lion-claw bath and a sauna. The second bedroom is laid out like a studio flat, with a shower room and a separate toilet. The stone and brick forming the walls have been left exposed. One interesting prospect is that the studio flat could be made completely independent.
Victor Hugo used to say “A breath of Paris preserves the soul” and, on the heights of Buttes-Chaumont Park, this saying has never seemed so true especially when strolling leisurely past the temple on the Isle of Belvédère. Paris appears close at hand in this verdant haven, a world where everything is possible. The air appears purer, the town bigger. Not far away, this flat is part of a small co-owned property with no nuisances to disturb it. Behind alleyways shrouded in vegetation, everyone knows everyone else and lives in perfect harmony. This open-plan flat, with its wooded courtyard and its vast rooms, exudes the same atmosphere. Courtesy of its unequalled flexibility, this property could become a family home, an artist’s studio or a refuge for a writer fleeing the hustle and bustle of the city.
