This converted mirror factory – on the market for €2.5 million via Patrice Besse – could be just the place to be seen in Paris.
Sited in the city’s 11th arrondissement, the 392 sq m property lies beside a private courtyard on Avenue Philippe Auguste near the Place de la Nation.
It retains many hallmarks of the capital’s industrial architecture, including wood and metal balcony corridors and industrial windows. There’s also plenty of potential to play about with its layout: organised around a central courtyard planted with bamboo and olive trees, the property has eight rooms and could be easily reconfigured as a live/work space.
One thing it definitely isn’t short of is natural light, thanks to the factory’s original glass roofing. There’s also a private terrace on the top floor, connected by a kitchen.
