in the Volontaires district of Paris’ 15th arrondissement
The 15th arrondissement, the biggest in the French capital, was created in 1860 when the town of Vaurigard was annexed to Paris. The northern area immediately became known as the “Necker district”. In fact, it was there in 1778, that Madame-Necker, wife of the controller general of finance to Louis XVI, decided to create a 120-bed hospice for the poor which was to become the famous Necker hospital at the beginning of the 19th century. Nowadays, this sector, stretching from the edge of the 7th arrondissement and Luxembourg Gardens, exudes a lively, residential and family atmosphere. In this setting, the flat is but a few minutes from schools, Lycée Buffon and Blomet swimming pool. Volontaires underground station (line 12) is nearby as are several stops on three bus routes as well as the “Noctilien” night bus service.
Said doors open into a wide perpendicular, entrance gallery which provides central access to all the rooms in the flat, creating a coherent, well-proportioned property, filled with through light. The floors are covered with herringbone pattern, solid parquet flooring, enhanced with the original decorative features. On one side of the main corridor, a 40 m² reception area is initially laid out as a dining room, illuminated via a picture window resembling a British bow window. It continues into a hexagonal, corner lounge area comprising three large windows, one of which is set above protruding cupboards that ingeniously conceal the old radiators. The walls are lined with wainscoting and cap moulding, whilst the ceilings are embellished with complex moulded motifs. These two rooms are extended by a balcony, with a distant view of Eiffel Tower.
A small kitchen, adjoining the dining room, requires renovation works to make it perfectly functional and to bring it in line with the rest of the flat.
The gallery also provides access to a discreet, practical cloakroom and then to the flat’s two bedrooms, one of which has a marble fireplace. Each bedroom features a small balcony, ideal for relaxing. And lastly, a bathroom, with a shower and a wash-hand basin as well as a laundry room, features more contemporary linear aesthetics. It is steeped in natural light via a window. This room can be accessed via one of the bedrooms. A basement cellar comes with this flat.
This flat is in an ideal location in the north of Paris’ 15th arrondissement. Local inhabitants walk everywhere, whether going shopping in the delicatessens, accompanying their children to school or taking advantage of the sunshine on one of the many terraces of the small, cosy restaurants. This pleasant, comfortable way of life is reflected in the flat, with its late 19th century, classical architecture and its wide, west-facing, bright, open-plan rooms. The balconies, big and small, create additional living areas and a natural, outdoor promontory, with a panoramic view culminating on the horizon in Eiffel Tower. This flat does, however, need some renovation works to give it back its splendour of yesteryear.
