A 325 m², 4-storey, open-plan flat with a terrace,
resembling a house, just 600 m from Square-des-Batignolles
Paris, PARIS paris 75017 FR

Location

Immense hunting grounds, where kings and nobles came to hunt game, originally covered the Plateau-des-Batignolles. After the French Revolution, a few hamlets and orchards flourished owing to the advent of a new middle-class. The little village of Batignolles then became a sought-after haven for Parisian shopkeepers who built their holiday homes there, prior to it becoming part of Paris’ 17th arrondissement in 1860. Nowadays, the district still exudes its village atmosphere and is one of the most highly appreciated in the French capital. Its small shops, like its covered market, are quiet and colourful. The Square-des-Batignolles and Martin-Luther-King Park are ideal places for taking a stroll of a weekend. There are numerous good schools in the area. Brochant underground station is but 250 m away.

Description

The ground floor entrance to this open-plan flat cannot be seen from the street. It is reached by passing through the hallway of a six-storey building which is accessed from the street. The ground floor, spanning 111 m², comprises a large, fully fitted kitchen, laid out under a wide atrium roof, a lounge, a dining room, a storage area and a separate toilet. The 100 m² basement includes a large, 73 m² room, set out as a projection room, a 19 m² storage room, a shower room and a laundry room.
The 66 m² first floor provides access to two bedrooms, a bathroom, with a shower and a bath, a separate toilet as well as a games room laid out in a conservatory. And lastly, the 52 m² second floor is taken up by an independent suite: the main bedroom adjoining its bathroom, comprising a shower and a bath, a dressing room and a separate toilet. A terrace completes this level.

The open-plan flat

This quiet open-plan flat is concealed behind a 6-storey, Art Deco style building. The entrance is on the ground floor, but a second entrance could be added on the second floor.


Ground floor
Double doors facing the front door open into a reception area which spans a total floor surface area of 110 m². On one side is a separate toilet and a stairway, going down to the basement. On the other side, the central area of the house, a large, fully fitted kitchen (a hob with two gas and two induction rings, a grill, an extraction hood, an American style refrigerator, an oven and a dishwasher) is especially bright courtesy of the copious amounts of light flooding in via an atrium. A wide, work surface incorporates a sheet of green marble. A large, high table can seat up to eight guests. The entire kitchen, topped with a wide atrium roof, extends into lounge and dining room areas, featuring refined lines and a resolutely contemporary style. The floor is covered with wide strip parquet flooring made from exotic wood. A stairway, behind glass walls at the end, goes to the upper floors.
First floor
The first floor, spanning 66 m², is isolated from the stairway by a glass wall. A wide corridor, with a window, provides access to two bedrooms with parquet flooring, one of which is extended by a veranda. The corridor, which includes an area with two desks, leads to a bathroom, lined with small red tiles, opposite the landing door. It comprises a dark wood vanity unit, housing two wash-hand basins and storage space. A sliding door leads to a bath and to a walk-in shower. This floor also has a separate toilet.
Second floor
The top floor of this open-plan flat is an independent suite, laid out around a large bedroom, of which the bathroom is an integral part. Both rooms are separated but by a floor-to-ceiling glass partition, giving the illusion of one large area. The entire room is steeped in light courtesy of wide openings on either side. On the left-hand side, two French windows open, furthermore, on to a pleasant terrace, with wooden-slatted flooring. Wide, chest-high planters run its full length, making it possible to add numerous plants to enhance the charm of this outside area. The bathroom includes two wash-hand basins, a shower and a bath. The old corridor, leading to the communal areas, houses a long wardrobe. Further on is a separate toilet.
Basement
A stairway goes down from the main entrance hall to the lower level and a large, 73 m² room, with a 3.15 m high ceiling. It is currently in use as an office and a projection room. The floor is laid with pale-coloured parquet flooring. At the end, separated by a glass-paved rotunda, another 19 m² area is used as a storage space. Behind a door are a laundry room as well as a shower room.

Our opinion

Plato once said: “Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity” and the philosopher’s words take on real meaning here. With its large, airy spaces that are so easy to move around, this open-plan flat features refined lines, transparency and light. Wood, dotted around here and there, not only adds a discreet touch of colour and enhances the brilliant white of the walls, but also injects a surprising and delightful warmth. These sober, modern premises invite peace and quiet as well as relaxation. All the residents can keep their privacy intact, lose themselves in daydreams or move from room to room in search of ingenious ideas. One of the attractions of this open-plan flat is its vast basement, where it would be possible to install offices or an exercise, music or games room.
