in an elegant Haussmannian building to the north of Paris’ 10th arrondissement
This prospering district of Paris, between the Sacré-Cœur and Avenue-Trudaine, just a stone’s throw from Gare-du-Nord train station and its extensive transport network, is greatly representative of the French capital. The combination of Bohemian cafés, restaurants with young chefs and numerous food shops forms an area abounding in energy. New life was breathed into the district under the Second Empire. In 1864, on the instructions of Napoleon III, Baron Haussmann created Boulevard-Magenta, a way into the modern Paris of the time, linking Gare-du-Nord to a new residential district. The luxury dressed stone rental buildings, built there by the Prefect of Paris, attracted a wealthy population charmed by their elegance, their construction quality and their interior facilities, all previously reserved for mansion houses. This flat is to be found in one of this district’s neo-classical buildings.
This property is composed of three full, L-shaped levels, overlooking both the street and the courtyard through five large openings on either side. It spans the first through to the third floor. The first and second levels are linked via an interior stairway, whilst a back stairway on the courtyard side provides access to all the floors. The five, south-west facing casement windows, overlooking the boulevard, let copious amounts of light into the adjoining rooms.
Moulded panelled doors, herringbone pattern, solid wood parquet flooring, wrought staff cornices, moulding, cap wall moulding and marble fireplaces all predominantly date from the construction era. These features typically adorned Haussmannian interiors. The ceilings, going up to a height of more than 3 m, also provide these spacious rooms with proportions typical of the architecture at that time. This property, which has authorisation to be used for commercial purposes throughout, could be divided by floor.
The architecture here, in this lively, increasingly sought-after district, with its excellent facilities, is eye-catching. The elegant, well-proportioned facade is a promise of spacious rooms and bears witness to an era when each material was meticulously selected. Inside, the Haussmannian decorative codes are to be found throughout. From one window to another, forming a genuine belvedere looking out over the French capital, the rooms offer an arial view over the Parisian rooftops, with the Sacré-Cœur as a backdrop. With its vast dimensions, period parquet flooring and adjoining rooms under high, moulded ceilings, all available for commercial use, this property can but tempt entrepreneurs and investors alike.
