in a little road concealed in Paris' 9th arrondissement
The Faubourg-Montmartre district, bordered by Paris’ great boulevards, has numerous entertainment centres such as the Folies-Bergère and the Théâtre-des-Nouveautés, amongst others. Fairy well concealed, this street features the superb neo-Renaissance style architecture with its gateways and their floral decoration. Its tranquil aspect is enhanced by the parking restrictions. In the peace and quiet of this lively district in the French capital, it reveals a real haven of coolness, with a central, little, enclosed square, adorned with a fountain, in the shade of its surrounding sycamore trees. All food shops are to be found nearby as are several schools. This area also has a very good public transport network.
Once through the entrance door, visitors’ eyes are immediately drawn to the row of windows in the lounge, where light simply floods in. This room is extended by a dining room, itself separated from the kitchen by a counter. One of the windows reveals the Sacré-Cœur in the distance like an observation post, keeping watch over the city. A corridor leads to a bedroom, where French windows open all on a level on to the terrace. The room faces a shower room and a separate toilet.
An interior stairway goes up from the lounge to the top floor. Directly under the roofs, it features some of the roofing framework’s impressive exposed beams and is illuminated via skylights, from which it is once again possible to admire the Sacré-Cœur. This level is taken up by a bedroom and a study. A corridor leads to a bathroom, one of the windows of which looks out over the bell-tower of Saint-Eugène-Sainte-Cécile church.
This flat has strip pattern parquet flooring throughout and numerous storage areas, dotted here and there. The many windows give it a triple aspect, enabling residents to take advantage of the sunlight all day long.
Resembling a house amidst an ocean of zinc rooftops, broken by the whiteness of the Sacré-Cœur, this flat appears to literally touch the sky. The comfortable, functional rooms are, therefore, steeped in light from dawn till dusk and from east to west. The south-west facing terrace is an additional asset. Once decorated with plants, it can be used by residents for lazing around, taking meals during clement weather and, why not, growing herbs. This property will appeal equally well to a couple with young children as to modern-day nomads who could make it their Parisian pied-à-terre.
