near to the picturesque Poncelet Market in the Ternes district
This property is in Paris’ 17th arrondissement, between Place-des-Ternes and its flower market, in the middle of the famous Rue-Poncelet, but sheltered from the joyous hustle and bustle of the stallholders and the passers-by. The street was named in 1868 after Jean-Victor-Poncelet, a famous 19th century mathematician and Commanding General of the prestigious École-Polytechnique school. He is also renowned for the closure theorem bearing his name, projective geometry that is still used today as a basis for computer vision systems.
Nowadays, this district is one of the chicest in Paris, with its numerous Haussmannian buildings, its trendy, convivial streets as well as its many food shops, small cafés and restaurants that share a regular clientele. The area also has direct access to La-Défense and the roads leading to Normandy. Just a stone’s throw from Boulogne Wood for those who enjoy long walks, local residents can also appreciate Promenade-Pereire, an old railway line transformed into a flower-filled area, notably with a magnificent rose bed.
This flat is laid out in a classical L-shape, with the reception areas on the road side and the night-time areas on the courtyard side. The entrance hall, lined with numerous storage areas, leads to a double reception room, with three wide, insulating windows, of modern design, that pleasantly illuminate the room. The period marble fireplace, the solid oak wood parquet flooring and the cornice, with its geometric moulding, are all reminiscent of the 1930’s. The kitchen, with its resin work surfaces, is vast and fully fitted. It opens into the reception area, the entrance to which is bordered by a bar.
At the other end, a corridor, lined with a tall, wide bookshelf unit, leads to the private areas. The three bedrooms, spanning more than 15 m², all look out over a quiet courtyard. The guest toilet, both shower rooms and the bathroom are all tiled and were recently renovated. A communal system provides heating and domestic hot water. A ventilated and sound, 16 m² cellar, protected by an armoured door, is to be found in the basement of the building.
The charm of living in a district made lively by numerous shops, next to one of Paris’ most famous and renowned markets, whilst being sheltered from the district’s joyous agitation is what will appeal to a family or a professional wanting to set up office. The building, with its elegant facade, is enhanced by its immaculately-kept, middle-class communal areas. The flat is vast, perfectly renovated and still has all of the features that exude the charm of the Art Deco style. The proximity of Monceau plain and its verdant park, of the same name, or that of the wide, wooded avenues around Place-de-l’Étoile, with all public transport services, make this an excellent investment.
