Near the Place des Vosges, a 41 m² upper floor flat
and its balcony with a view of the Hôtel de Sully
Paris, PARIS paris 75004 FR


Close to the Seine, the flat is also a stone's throw from the Place des Vosges and the Bastille. The name of this main avenue of the Marais is linked to that of the Saint-Antoine abbey, which was converted into a hospital in 1790. Integrated into the wall of Philip II Augustus in the 12th century and then into that of Charles V, it was the preferred venue for tournaments and royal festivals in the 18th century, including the Paris Carnival. From the Place de la Bastille to the Place du Marché Sainte-Catherine, the history of Paris can also be visited by looking at its elegant facades and remarkable monuments built under the Ancien Régime. The Hotel de Sully is one of the most famous. Today, shops and terraces abound everywhere in this lively and dynamic district. The Saint-Paul, Bastille, Sully-Morland and Chemin Vert metro stations are within walking distance, as are several bus stops.


The dressed stone building bears witness to the Restoration's discreet repertoire: simple floor mouldings punctuate the facade, ornamentation is limited to the dais in the central part and the moulded window frames with cast iron railings. The upper floors are emphasised by a balcony and a continuous corbel. The entrance door with its wooden crossbars leads to a simple entrance hall, paved with beautiful old stone slabs.
The flat, on the fifth floor, is accessed via a wooden staircase and a lift as from November 2022. With a surface area of 41 m², facing north-east and south-west, the dual-exposure flat opens onto a small corridor, serving the bathroom and the kitchen. It leads to a spacious 28 m² room with beams and half-timbering where a bedroom could be created. Three French windows open onto the balcony and offer an unobstructed view of the Hôtel de Sully and the beautiful old facades of the street.

A flat with panoramic views

From the moment you enter, the brightness, the calm, the sky view and the old facades capture your attention. The light spreads an even brightness in every room of the carefully maintained flat. On the courtyard side, the entrance hall with its terracotta floor benefits from the luminosity of the upper floor. It features a comfortable bathroom and kitchen. Further on, the 28 m² living room with its beamed ceiling opens onto a balcony with a Greek frieze railing. The half-timbering punctuates the white walls. The oak floor is covered with sisal and a mirror tops the fireplace. The generous size of this area could allow the creation of a separate room. The three openings, moulded wooden French windows, reveal a panorama of old facades, flowered balconies and slate roofs. The famous townhouse of Maximilien de Béthune, Duke of Sully (1559-1641), has retained a beautiful Renaissance-inspired silhouette.

Our opinion

On the Seine side of the Marais, an authentic and luminous flat which benefits from the joyful atmosphere of the central and historic districts of the capital, and at the same time offers peace and quiet thanks to its location on a high floor. The interior has a sober, elegant and classical aesthetic combined with the spirit of pre-19th century buildings. Between the Place de la Bastille, the Ile Saint-Louis and the Boulevard Saint-Germain, this flat is ideal as a pied-à-terre, an interesting rental investment or for professional use.
