On the edge of Nancy's historic centre, not far from Place-Stanislas, a flat with a private terrace in an Art Nouveau style building.
Near to Porte-Désilles (an 18th century triumphal arch and memorial), at one end of Cours-Léopold, a large rectangular, wooded square that gives shape to the entire town of Nancy. All the districts in the old town, Vieux-Nancy, are on a lower level to the east. Place-Stanislas, in its centre, bears outstanding witness to the architecture of the time of Louis XV. Whilst the district to the west, spanning the immediate parallel and perpendicular streets, is dotted with the town's most sought-after villas and mansion houses.
Most of the town's cultural and nocturnal events take place in the nearby Vieux-Nancy.
The town's most well-known secondary schools and sixth form colleges are to be found in the local area.
Nancy train station, with fast 85-minute links to Paris, is just ten or so minutes away on foot.
This vast flat is part of a superb, dressed stone building constructed in 1901, a period that greatly influenced the École-de-Nancy (School of Nancy). It spans 334 m² over three levels, the first taking up the entire second floor of the building, which comprises a total of two. The third level is laid out in the attic space.
The main facade faces a street leading to Cours-Léopold, whilst the other facade looks out over a small courtyard. Beyond are the gardens of a fairly low, neighbouring building, beautifully reflecting a contemporary style.
The street facade immediately stands out courtesy of its Art Nouveau style, typically featuring interlacing decoration, sculpted with foliage and flowers, above the main windows. The building stairway draws particular attention because of a decor, highly symbolic of the period with wrought iron railings adorned with gilt brass, floral motifs, a piece of corner furniture coming from the École-de-Nancy on the first floor landing and an atrium window designed by Joseph-Janin (particularly responsible for a stained-glass window of the Villa-Bergeret), on the intermediate landing facing the entrance door to the flat.
Bikes and pushchairs can be stored on the ground floor of the building.
This flat, together with just four others, is part of an immaculately kept, small, co-owned building, managed in a family manner.
The flatThe building's wide, curving stairway has low steps, providing easy, untiring access to a little landing which leads to a single door, opening into the flat. An atrium window by Joseph-Janin, master glassmaker from the École-de-Nancy, can but catch the eye of all visitors as they make their way to the flat. The door opens then into a vestibule on the second floor of the building which is the first level in the flat.
A wide vestibule provides access to two large reception rooms opposite the entrance door.
A large lounge, with the warm hues of its herringbone pattern parquet flooring, features a marble fireplace topped with a trumeau mirror. Three, small-paned, picture windows take up almost all of the wall facing the street. This unusual layout, letting copious amounts of light into the room, represents a most outstanding decorative feature, reflecting the Victorian style.
The rectangular dining room also looks out over the street from one of its ends via an elegant
