A bright, 2-roomed flat in the peace and quiet of a cherry tree garden,
in a no-through road at the foot of Montmartre hill on Paris’ Right-Bank
Paris, PARIS paris 75018 FR

Location

This flat is at the foot of Montmartre hill, in a discreet, little no-through road off Rue-Lepic, which winds its way up towards the heights. It was on this same hill in the 19th century, when it was but grasslands, orchards and mills, that Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas and Van-Gogh painted their most beautiful masterpieces. This district still exudes that era’s picturesque, Bohemian atmosphere, where artists and actors roam the streets amongst an anonymous crowd. Furthermore, Place-du-Tertre with its portrait artists is but a stone’s throw away as is Sacré-Cœur and (no doubt) one of the best panoramic views of Paris, together with numerous food shops and terraces.

Description

The paved road is lined with houses. The garden is protected by a low, millstone grit wall, itself topped with wrought iron railings, giving the entire property complete privacy. A pathway leads through the garden to the house, the floors of which have been converted into flats. With its white-rendered facade and its slatted shutters, the house reflects a typically countryfied appearance, undeniably reminiscent of Montmartre’s character.
The entrance door, protected by a numerical keypad security system, features a glazed panel, decorated with fine wrought iron scrolls. It opens directly into a hall, the floor of which is paved with cement tiles, featuring coloured, geometric motifs. These go perfectly with the period, quarter-turning stairway, with its wooden steps, reflecting a 19th century air.
This flat, on the second floor, is very bright courtesy of two south-facing windows, overlooking the garden. A good-sized, reception room opens on to a fully fitted kitchen. These two open-plan rooms create a wonderful feeling of spaciousness. A pivoting door, ingeniously concealed in a wall and almost undetectable at first glance, provides access to a vast storeroom. This is big enough to keep a laundry area, with a washing machine, as well as several storage areas out of sight.
The second section of the flat is laid out at the end around a bedroom, with a window overlooking the courtyard, opening directly on to a bathroom with a bath. A separate toilet is to be found near to the entrance.

Our opinion

This pied-à-terre, exuding positive vibes, is set at the foot of the hill, both fairly close to and yet sufficiently far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the lively Montmartre village. Facing south and looking out over a magnificent cherry tree, its residents can take advantage of a luminosity that is not often to be found on the heights of Paris. It is this very special light, concealed or filtered by the trees, cold of a morning and warm until dusk, whilst changing with the seasons, that probably inspired Utrillo when he painted Rue-Lepic more than a hundred years ago. New owners can move into this cleverly laid-out flat straight away.
