On the Left Bank, in the 7th arrondissement and near the Bon Marché,
a 142 m² flat with a full-length corner balcony overlooking the Hotel Lutetia.
Paris, PARIS paris 75007 FR

Location

Until 1789, the Left Bank of Paris was named "l'Outre-Petit Pont” (beyond the little bridge), after the bridge that was for a long time the only crossing point from the Ile de la Cité to the south bank of the Seine. The flat is located in the Saint-Thomas-d'Aquin district, to the east of the 7th arrondissement and on the edge of the 6th arrondissement. Here, at the natural crossroads of the Left Bank, just a stone's throw from Saint-Germain-des-Prés and numerous green spaces such as the Luxembourg Gardens or the secret Catherine-Labourée garden, the 17th century or Haussmann-style buildings are home to embassies, select boutiques and elegant grocery stores... The “Grande Épicerie de Paris”, a showcase of international gastronomy part of the Bon Marché, the oldest department store in Paris, is only a two-minute walk away, as is the Sèvres-Babylone metro station (lines 10 and 12).

Description

The building was erected in 1880, a typical example of Haussmannian architecture. Bas-reliefs, pilasters and mouldings, elaborate ironwork railings and balustrades harmoniously decorate the dressed stone facade. There are seven floors in the building, with two shops on the ground floor, then six residential floors and finally an attic floor. The five floors are served by the carpeted main staircase and a lift, while a secondary staircase leads to the attic rooms. The rear staircase also provides access to each flat through a service door. One of the special features of the building is that each flat extends over an entire floor. A balcony, accessed by five French windows, runs along the façade of the fifth floor. Here, the 142 m² flat enjoys a double exposure, light pours through the windows on both sides, ensuring the natural illumination of the whole space throughout the day. The flat requires a full renovation and has all the assets of classic Haussmann-style charm: oak parquet floors, solid panelled doors, moulded plaster cornices and marble fireplaces. In the centre of the large rooms, the sitting room boasts delicately inlaid parquet flooring and a curved wall with two French windows. It is here that the seemingly carved façade develops its unobstructed and elegant view. You only have to step out of one of the French windows to enjoy a fantastic view of the Hotel Lutetia. Some of the greatest artists of the 20th century, from Josephine Baker to Hemingway, stayed in this jewel of Art Deco architecture, built during the Belle Époque and listed as a Historic Monument. The layout of the remaining rooms can easily be modified. Currently, there are two bedrooms and an office. The two rooms presently used as kitchen and master bedroom have windows overlooking the courtyard. A cellar completes the property.

Our opinion

Right in the centre of one of Paris’s most exclusive districts, which reflects a discreet blend of unostentatious luxury and the intellectual and artistic spirit of the Left Bank, the flat is the setting of a remarkable panorama. Jutting out like the prow of a ship, its full-length corner balcony opens up an exclusive vista of the city's rooftops which frame the Hotel Lutetia, an Art Deco masterpiece. Inside, oak parquet floors, sunlight from both sides, marble fireplaces and white walls with moulded ceilings give an atmosphere of classic sobriety. The property is in need of complete renovation.
