An open-plan flat in an old coaching inn between Avenue-de-Madrid and Rue-de-Longchamp in Neuilly-sur-Seine.
The facade is the size of that of a house. After having climbed up two floors via a stairway in the bright communal areas, a door opens on to steps leading to this flat. Solid oak wood parquet flooring, wide picture windows, a ceiling resembling that of the nave of a cathedral, an effect caused by its 2-storey height, enhanced with an exposed period roofing framework. An elegant, curving, metal walkway, with straight railings and black glossy gadrooning, reached via a stairway with a central stringer and open oak wood steps, a monumental stone fireplace and an open-plan kitchen in the living room area are features that bestow this property with its character. A toilet is on the lower level facing the entrance. On one side, a living room area, with a fireplace, is followed by an eating area in front of a kitchen. Natural lighting is provided by windows on either side, overlooking the avenue and the courtyard, thus making this a through flat. On the other side, a circular hall area has a curved door which opens into a shower room, leading, in turn, to a laundry room; a second door, also curved in shape, provides access to a bedroom with a wardrobe. The quarter-turning stairway, with its eleven steps near to the entrance, goes up to a large study area, illuminated via Velux windows. This area could easily be partitioned and sound-proofed to create a third bedroom. At the end of the curving walkway is a bedroom. With sloping ceilings and spanning more than 30 m², it, too, is illuminated via Velux windows.
