in the gardens of a co-owned property at the foot of Montmartre hill
This house, at the foot of Montmartre hill, stands in the gardens of a co-owned property near to shops and Saint-Pierre market, the Parisian mecca of fabrics for more than a century. It is in this same district, when it was but a village, that Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas and Van-Gogh painted their most beautiful masterpieces. Paris’ 18th arrondissement, still exuding that era’s authentic, working-class atmosphere, is now a meeting place for intellectuals, artists and musicians as well as families and students. Especially as the Pigalle district, with its theatres and shows, is not far away, just like the Grands-Boulevards area with its trendy brasseries. An underground station (lines 2 and 4) is but a 3-minute walk.
The current co-owned building was constructed in 1994 around a vast inner garden, on the site of the old stables that once belonged to the Dufayel department store which, before the war, had the reputation of being the biggest in the world. Out of sight of onlookers, this cubic-shaped house is preceded by its garden, spanning approx. 30 m², and its hedges. With two levels and a basement, its total constructed surface area is 137 m², comprising 114 m² of living space. The facade features a first-floor, 4 m² terrace.
Accessed via a heavy front door, following a small terrace, the main level comprises a 35 m² living room. This area is divided between a dining room on the garden side and a lounge under a large atrium window on the other. The semi-open-plan, fully fitted kitchen is illuminated via an independent window. This level is paved with floor tiles throughout and all the openings are fitted with electric curtains.
The brilliant white, turning stairway goes up under a second atrium window to the first floor. This level comprises two bedrooms, with parquet flooring, one of which has a balcony. A third room, a small bedroom or study, is also laid out under an atrium window. Fully tiled, the monochrome, modernist bathroom features a double vanity unit and a bath. Next to it, a smaller shower room has a shower and a toilet. The visit of this level ends with that of the small, 4 m² terrace. Electric shutters have been fitted throughout this floor, including the atrium windows.
A wide stairway goes down from the ground floor to the basement, housing a games room, spanning approx. 20 m², with a high ceiling and parquet flooring. Further on are a laundry room, a cellar and a vast, 22 m², lock-up garage able to take a good-sized car and a scooter.
Paris’ 18th arrondissement and its colourful nights, where the air carries a fragrance of bustling, nonchalant creativity, where the world comes together with astonishment and delight. Cinema enthusiasts can enjoy the Louxor’s projection rooms, whilst those who adore live shows can visit the Pigalle district, just a stone’s throw away. In this young, resolutely dynamic and emblematic area, the new owners of this house will be able to take advantage of its spacious rooms, elegantly and tastefully decorated. Its rational, optimised layout features unusual, but not excessive features. The co-owned property, out of sight of the street and away from onlookers, stands in a green setting in a grey landscape.
