During the 17th century, it became a matter of prestige for the French Bourgeoisie to build mansion houses outside the cities, which were called « folies ». Originally isolated in the countryside, urbanization eventually caught up with the folies. It is therefore a 190sqm folie and its 280sqm garden that we invite you to discover, nestled in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, a quiet part of the city, and a mere 10mn walk away from « Le bois de Vincennes ». Invisible from the street, a tranquil pathway leads you to the secured garden gate. You then walk across a walled garden, complete with apple trees, rose bushes and a covered vegetable garden, to arrive to a 35sqm stone terrace. You reach the light flooded mansion, with its numerous windows and high ceiling (3m), through a vestibule leading on one side to a dining room with marbled floor, and on the other a wide living-room with a stunning Versailles wooden floor. At the end of the vestibule, you will find a cloakroom and guest toilets. The kitchen opens onto a little courtyard with shed and utility room, then on to a cosy Ryad-style patio, ideal to enjoy relaxing moments by the fountain and winter garden. You reach the 1st floor by going up a spectacular solid oak staircase leading, on the garden side, to a wide bedroom with dressing room and a second bedroom with storage space. On the courtyard side, a large bathroom with shower and bathtub, separate toilets, a small bathroom with hip bath, and a small room with toilets and sink. Going up one more set of steps, you reach the 2nd floor with 3 spacious bedrooms with storage space, including one with its own en-suite, as well as another bathroom with bathtub and fitted cupboards, and a small functional kitchen. This property is perfectly fitted for private or liberal professional use, and also comprises two caves and a parking spot.
