This Parisian apartment in the city’s 11th arrondissement comes with an abundance of space – and hints of a hidden industrial past…

Close to Le Square Trousseau, it’s sited in the heart of a neighbourhood known for its cabinet makers and artisan workshops. Large French windows open onto the third-floor apartment, whose own history can be read in its steel columns, cornices and industrial-scale proportions.

Soaring 3.3m-high ceilings and tall wooden doors and windows amplify the feeling of space in the four-bedroom property. Its pièce de résistance is the enormous 55 sq m living room.

Elsewhere, a glass and wood partition divides the kitchen and reception room, and parquet floors have all been painted black.

The apartment’s 25 sq m, plant-filled balcony overlooks the courtyard at the core of the building. It also provides access to a small, self-contained studio flat included in the sale.

It’s on the market via Patrice Besse for €2.58m.
