on the edge of the French capital in Gentilly
In the 7th century, King Dagobert gifted the village of Gentilly to Saint-Eloi, his goldsmith, minister and advisor. The latter established a colony of foreign jewellers there, known as the “Gentiles”. They settled on the banks of the river Bièvre, near to a few cultivating farms. And that is how the market town of the Gentiles became Gentilly. The centre of the village was formed by an abbey, no longer in existence. In its place now stands the listed Saint-Saturnin church, set just behind the “périphérique” ring road.
This house is set in a quiet street in the Plateau district, on the heights of Gentilly. It is less than 100 metres from a station on RER train line B, with its 10-minute links to Paris and its 30-minute links to Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport. It is also near to the A6 motorway and the “périphérique” ring road. Cycling enthusiasts would easily be able to reach the centre of the French capital in 30 minutes.
On one side, a straight wooden stairway goes directly up to a mezzanine which is laid out as a lounge or relaxation area. A temperature-controlled, programmable, wood-burning stove was recently added and promises to heat winter evenings. The floor above is taken up by two bedrooms, with parquet flooring, bordered by a large picture window. Either could be converted into a study or an office. They adjoin a bathroom, reflecting a minimalist style with a bath and a vanity unit. The fourth and top floor comprises a main bedroom, with a private bathroom. It also gives access to an attic.
In addition, this house comes with a parking space and a bicycle shed.
Sober, harmonious and resolutely contemporary, this house is set on the outskirts of Paris, in a quiet, secure co-owned property, almost isolated from the rest of the world. The interior of this transparent, tall, 4-storey home is both welcoming and airy as well as being tastefully decorated. The solid furniture is minimalist, the lush garden omnipresent. The layout is ingenious as each room stands out courtesy of its versatility: the lounge could become a games room, the bedrooms, an exercise room and the top floor could be used for professional purposes. The energy performance of the appliances is also extremely efficient. In short, this elegant, functional property is immaculately kept and would make a first-class, sound investment.
