Staggering 20-ft-high ceilings set the bar inside this voluminous live/work Paris loft, for sale in the city’s Bas-Montreuil district.
The industrial Paris property is listed via Espaces Atypiques for €1.299m, and you get plenty of bang for your buck inside the 2,207 sq ft loft, which has a flowing open floorplan to maximise its adaptiveness.
The pièce de résistance is the living room – a colossal 1,300 sq ft space crowned by painted steel trusses, skylights and the building’s towering corrugated roof. White walls, pale wooden floors and a fully-glazed facade exaggerate its massive proportions while enabling light-flow through the sundrenched space.
A freestanding kitchen has been installed at one end of the Paris property, complete with stainless steel shelving units and a 10-person dining table. At the other end, a stainless steel spiral staircase provides access to the mezzanine level bedroom.
Elsewhere, a second bedroom – complete with informal study space – is included in the floorplan, along with a more formal office on the main floor packed with wall-to-wall bookcases and an unusual circular doorway.
