A 240 m², open-plan, 4-bedroomed flat, with a clear, south-facing view,
ideal for mixed purposes, in Ivry-sur Seine
Ivry-sur-Seine, VAL-DE-MARNE paris 94200 FR


The building, between the banks of the river Seine and Cormailles Park, is in one of the first rehabilitated districts of Ivry-sur-Seine, a town on the edge of Paris’ 13th arrondissement. Food shops are nearby as are public transport services (bus, tramway, RER train line C, underground line 7) providing direct, easy access to the centre of the French capital, in addition to the future extension of line 10 of the underground from Austerlitz train station. The proximity of the “périphérique” ring road as well as the A4 and A86 motorways is yet another asset.


This open-plan flat is in an old industrial dairy which was rehabilitated as dwellings in the 1990’s. It is laid out on the raised ground floor, reached by crossing a large hall looking out over an interior garden. The first level of the flat, with a ceiling going up to a height of 5.30 m, comprises a large entrance hall, with a separate toilet and a storage area. It is extended by a vast living room, divided into various areas, with an open-plan kitchen. A separate bedroom, with an adjoining bathroom, a wardrobe and a sauna, complete this level. Two interior stairways give access to the upper floor of this flat, where a section of the corridor looks down on to the ground floor. This second level comprises a bathroom, a toilet, three bedrooms and a laundry room.
This particularly bright flat, facing south-east-south-west, features very tall atrium windows in the lounge area, providing a totally unobstructed view, as well as a balcony with a stairway. The latter gives access to the enclosed outside areas of the building, including a terrace-garden on a lower level. A double car parking space in the basement, reached via a lift, is included in the sale. This open-plan flat can be used for mixed purposes.

The open-plan flat

Visitors passing through the old factory doors, featuring their original curved reception window, have to cross the vast concrete hall which, still exuding its industrial air, is extended by an interior garden, planted with tall bamboo plants. This open-plan flat opens into an L-shaped entrance hall which leads to a first interior stairway and a separate toilet, followed by a storage area. The impressive, 5.30 m high ceiling then continues, right, to a vast living room, laid out as several areas used for a variety of purposes: a lounge, an open-plan kitchen delimited by a counter, a study and a dining room. The wide strip parquet flooring encourages residents to look towards the tall, south-east and south-west facing windows that let in copious amounts of light all day long. The view is totally unobstructed on the south and west sides.
A first bedroom, to the left of this room, is completed by a bathroom, with a walk-in shower, a bath and a toilet, as well as a wardrobe and a sauna. Here, as in the dining room or the study, the ceiling is lower, creating cosier areas under the upper level, reached via the entrance stairway or via a second flight of steps going up from the dining room. The upstairs, currently given over to the children, comprises three bedrooms, a bathroom, a separate toilet and a laundry room. Part of the corridor becomes a curved balcony looking down on to the lounge area. The concrete floors are covered with vegetable fibre matting.
The French windows at the end of the living room open on to a balcony, running alongside the flat and leading to a stairway. This flight of steps makes it possible to access the building’s outside communal areas, bordered by trees and shrubs, including a garden-terrace under the lounge windows and, further on, a playground area.
The sale includes a double car parking space in the basement, reached via a lift. Guests are able to park within the enclosed perimeter of the co-owned building and, when the weather is fine, join their hosts on the vast communal terrace laid out on the roof of the building, with a panoramic view.

Our opinion

The layout of the different areas over two levels and their varying sizes ensures that the privacy of every resident is preserved and provides a perfect balance between the advantages of a spacious open-plan flat and the characteristics of a more traditional one. A large family could find a comfortable home in these premises, unless an artist or any other professional were to decide to use them for their activity and their accommodation, one completely independent of the other. Additional character is added here by the architecture of the building which, ingeniously rehabilitated into dwellings and artist’s studios, still reflects its industrial origins in an elegant blend of metal, concrete, brick and glass. Minor decoration works would further enhance the unique style of these premises. Permitted used of the various outside areas means that residents can take advantage of the smallest ray of sunshine. This wonderful opportunity to live in the midst of such a district, abounding in numerous artists, is not one to be ignored or left to chance!
