Filled with antiques and brimming bookshelves, this Parisian atelier in the city’s 9th arrondissement is like stepping out back in time.
The three-bedroom bolthole – on the market via Espaces Atypique for €4.7m – is steps from the Rue des Martyrs and is entered via a quiet courtyard garden. Its living room, bedrooms and kitchen can be found on lower floors, with rooms featuring warm wooden floors, carved columns and stained glass windows.
Per the listing, the converted workshop will need some renovating but the bones offer plenty of inspiration for its grand revival – especially on the third floor. Here a glass-capped atelier crowns the Paris property.
This voluminous space has soaring 8.5-metre high ceilings and a mezzanine library that skirts the room, decking in swooping arches and built-in bookshelves that are stuffed with volumes and antiques.
