in the heart of the 5th arrondissement, the historic cradle of Paris
The 5th arrondissement of Paris with its many historic buildings is one of the oldest in the capital. Covering most of the Latin Quarter, it was built by the Romans in ancient times. Facing the Luxembourg Gardens, the building is close to a number of prestigious schools - the Collège-Lycée Lavoisier, the École Alsacienne, and the Louis-le-Grand and Henri IV lycées. This extensive public garden which forms part of the 6th arrondissement provides an ideal spot for both sporting activities and relaxing strolls through wooded and flower-filled grounds. Theatres, cinemas and restaurants are just a few minutes from the flat, situated at the heart of a vibrant artistic and cultural district.
It is easy to get around Paris thanks to a wide range of transport options, including the RER B and bus lines 38 and 82. For destinations further afield, the nearby RER B is equidistant between Charles-de-Gaulle and Orly airports.
The slate and zinc roof features dormer windows at the top of each bay. The solid wood entrance door in the centre is glazed and topped by a transom. The building is accessed via a hall with carved wood wall panelling and original floor tiles in multicoloured geometric patterns. A lift leads up to the fourth floor, where a landing serves two flats.
The property comprises two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a double living room, all in immaculate condition, with herringbone parquet flooring, marble fireplaces and walls and ceilings with ornate mouldings. It also includes a cellar and free parking in the building's courtyard.
Located on the fourth floor, it is accessed by a lift to the landing serving two flats. Once through the reinforced double wooden doors, the hallway leads to the bedrooms on the left and the 30m² living room on the right. The vast living room features herringbone parquet flooring, walls with decorative mouldings and a ceiling height of around 3 metres. Two large windows provide plenty of natural light and an unobstructed view of both the courtyard and the adjoining garden.
In the hallway, the first door opens onto a fitted kitchen and the second onto a bathroom with two basins and a bath. At the end of the corridor, there are two bedrooms of around 13 and 15 m², both of which are quiet and overlook the garden. They offer plenty of storage space and their windows are fitted with electric blinds.
Each room features a marble fireplace, herringbone parquet flooring and panelled walls. The ceilings also have moulded cornices with spandrels bearing floral motifs.
This is one of the most central addresses in Paris, in a lively, sought-after district popular with Parisians, but which would also suit occupants from elsewhere looking for a prestigious place of abode. Given its pristine condition, the flat does not require any work. Mouldings, herringbone oak parquet flooring and natural light are the hallmarks of this elegant property, reflecting its location and period. The future inhabitants can unpack their suitcases an immediately feel at home. The flat enjoys plenty of natural light, and conversion into a professional office such as a lawyer's or doctor's practice would be just two of the many possibilities offered by this prime address.
