a sought-after address in Toulouse’s Saint-Etienne district
Toulouse, HAUTE-GARONNE midi-pyrenees 31000 FR

Location

This flat is ideally located in the most beautiful historic district of Toulouse. Just 5 minutes’ walk from the Carmes market and but 3 minutes from public gardens (Jardin-Royal, Jardin-des-Plantes and Jardin-du-Grand-Rond). Near to the underground. 5 minutes from the Canal-du-midi.

Description

In the Middle-Ages, Rue-de-l'Orme-de-Saintes-Scarbes belonged to the Saint-Étienne “capitoulat” or council. The members of parliament and the lawyers there have always been numerous which is perhaps why it became known as Rue-des-Nobles in the middle of the 16th century. It still has the same appearance now as it did in the 18th century. This flat is just a stone’s throw from Saint-Etienne cathedral, uniting several gothic styles over several centuries.
The facade of the building, constructed in the 17th century, is typical of Toulouse’s classical architecture. It comprises four bays and three floors. On the ground floor, the surround framing the doorway alternates brick and stone. On the upper floors, the windows are rectangular, those on the first floor being enhanced with railings. It also features large balcony corridors.

The flat

This flat is in the mansion house where the famous French mathematician, Pierre-de-Fermat, once lived. The large doors open into a paved courtyard, typical of the Renaissance period. The facade, composed of the red Toulouse brick used by the wealthy 15th century pastel mill owners, and the ground floor arches, reminiscent of the old stables, give this sober building regular lines. On opening the heavy medieval door, a vaulted corridor appears, leading to the main courtyard. Inside, the main room has a 4 m high ceiling. The walls feature exposed brick, whilst the ceiling has been fully insulated in keeping with the old materials. The kitchen has been designed in such a way as not to alter the authenticity of the room. A medieval, oak wood door gives access to a shower room, completely redone using quality materials.
Upstairs, a mezzanine bedroom is concealed by slatted shutters.
The west-facing picture window looks out over the main courtyard, thus letting in copious amounts of light.

Our opinion

This flat is in an outstanding location in the historic district of Toulouse, the most sought-after in the pink city. It has a highly privileged urban setting, with shops and good restaurants contributing to the rarity of the property.
