A 91 m² flat in a 17th century townhouse
near Place Saint-Sulpice in the 6th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75006 FR

Location

This former mansion, close to the famous Saint-Sulpice church, was built around 1630. Elegant boutiques and terrace cafes abound in this legendary district of the Left Bank, between Rue de Tournon and Rue Bonaparte, the Marché Saint-Germain and Place Saint-Sulpice. The Luxembourg Garden provides a refreshing backdrop, and several metro stations are close by: Saint-Sulpice, Mabillon and Saint-Germain-des-Prés (lines 4 and 10).

Description

The stately Baroque portal leads to an entrance porch, followed by a paved, tree-lined courtyard featuring small slate-roofed lodges, with a view of the Hôtel de Brancas and its grounds planted with chestnut trees. The 91 m² flat is on the first floor, accessed via an impressive flight of ashlar and oak stairs. Calm and light are the hallmarks of this property. The flat offers a clever layout: the pleasantly proportioned reception areas, living and dining room, are separate from the two bedrooms. The master bedroom has an adjacent closet and a shower room, with the view of the Hôtel de Brancas in the backdrop, while the guest bedroom with its shower room could be used as a study, if required. The stainless steel kitchen is discreet, despite being open to the dining area. A cellar completes the property.

The flat

A judicious blend of classicism and modernity, this 91 m² flat is located on the first floor of the building. The windows, facing the street and the paved courtyard, provide plenty of light in every room and offer stunning views of the Hôtel de Brancas and its chestnut tree-lined grounds. The French-style beamed ceilings and floors with straight strip or Versailles parquet and terracotta tiles, currently carpeted, blend harmoniously with the polished concrete, brushed stainless steel and black sandstone tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms. While the walls are chiefly painted white, those in the dining area boldly feature vermilion red. The humble entrance leads to the spacious 34 m² reception area, with oak pillars between the living room and the dining area. This is extended by the 10 m² brushed stainless steel kitchen at the back, where hosts and guests can chat together. The utility room is functional and practical. The independent private areas, master bedroom and guest bedroom or study, have each their own shower room. The closet of the master bedroom, with its unobstructed view over the paved courtyard, doubles as a boudoir.

Our opinion

In this central district of the Left Bank, a hub of Parisian cultural and intellectual life, the 17th century period building matches the living space. Steeped in silence and authenticity, this light-filled flat, which could also be used for professional purposes, will regain its original splendour once it has undergone some refurbishment work.
