on the first floor of an old building in Lyon
The flat is situated in Lyon's 4th arrondissement, in the historic Croix-Rousse district, between the Maison des Canuts, now a weaving loom museum and workshop, and the impressive Gros Caillou rock, a remnant of glacial erosion. The neighbourhood is a maze of streets, alleyways and tree-lined squares, once home to weavers' workshops that have since been converted into homes. Nearby, the famous Wall of the Canuts, a 1,200 m² trompe-l'œil wall painting, depicts the typical atmosphere of the plateau, its houses, staircases and inhabitants. The building is located in a small street, close to a metro station and a stone's throw from the boulevard de la Croix-Rousse, where a market is held every day.
A low door leads from the landing to a hall, which in turn provides access to two flats. The door to the flat opens onto a corridor serving two bedrooms on the right, each with a mezzanine, a high ceiling and a tall window. There is a shared bathroom on the left. A passageway leads to the main living area, with a kitchen opening onto the corner sitting room and dining area. The ceiling beams and joists are exposed. The separate lavatory is housed in a small tower. A wooden staircase leads to the third mezzanine bedroom. It is separated from the main living area below by a screen wall. A television lounge area and attic space complete this level. The floors are of hardwood and the windows are double-glazed. The dual aspect ensures plenty of natural light. A vaulted cellar of around 12 m² provides additional storage space.
A typical silk worker's flat, intelligently restored and carefully decorated to bring comfort and modernity to a place steeped in history. This quality property, which offers both natural light and privacy, has been beautifully renovated. Set between streets and alleyways close to the Piazza Bertone, in the chic, bohemian village district of the Croix-Rousse, it enjoys all the advantages of urban living and is a great place to live. All that remains is to move in and peacefully enjoy the great quality of life in a privileged area: stroll up the hill, take advantage of the market and food shops, the terracotta-paved squares and the many lively terraces in the area.
