A 62 m² detached house with a total floor area of 89 m²
set out of sight close to Place Saint-Sulpice, in Paris’ 6th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75006 FR


The street was built in 1630, between the rues Mabillon and Canettes, on the site of the Sancerre and de Roussillon private mansions. It owes its name to the supporters of the Guises who, during the Catholic League, had their headquarters close by, at the Hôtel du Petit-Bourbon which was inhabited by the Duchess of Montpensier.
The district between the Marché Saint-Germain and Place Saint-Sulpice, is alive with designer boutiques, iconic bookshops, gourmet shops, restaurants and café terraces. The Luxembourg Gardens are a cool, refreshing place to be, and there are several metro stations close by: Saint-Sulpice, Mabillon and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, which lines 4 and 10 pass through.


A discreet, painted wooden gate surrounded by powerful ashlar jambs leads to a gallery and then a tree-lined courtyard where the house is situated. After the entrance which is topped by a glass canopy, there is a flight of stairs, lined with half-timbered walls, which lead up to the restored duplex measuring 62 m² under the French Carrez law and with a total floor area of 89 m². The first floor, with its terracotta tiled floors, is set up with two bedrooms with tall arched windows surrounded by oak joinery, with a bathroom and shower room tiled in blue. On the second floor, large skylights bring light to the welcoming main space, with its oak parquet flooring, living, dining and kitchen areas. Sheltered from view, the house, with its tasteful decor inspired by the ancient style of the district, is bathed in silence and light.

A small house

Sheltered from the lively co-property courtyard, the duplex apartment restored in ancient style is housed within the small house. A flight of stairs lined with half-timbered walls leads to a landing with a tiled floor that opens onto the first floor where the private areas of the apartment are. Two bedrooms, one a spacious 19 m² and the second around 10 m², each with a wardrobe, have high arched oak-surrounded windows. The terracotta tiled floors contrast with the white walls. In the bathroom with its bath and a shower, and the shower room, travertine and ceramic tiles with bluish motifs add to the romantic atmosphere. From the landing, the spiral staircase leads to the main living area, with a floor surface area measuring around 20 m² - 40 m². It is a welcoming space where the dining and living areas meet with light oak parquet flooring and large skylights.

Our opinion

Just a stone's throw from Saint-Germain-des-Prés, close to Place Saint-Sulpice, the house is a haven of peace away from the crowds. It has been meticulously laid out using both original and recent materials bringing every aspect a special atmosphere, from the romantic feeling of some of the hushed rooms to the more modern attic space on the second floor. An ideal pied-à-terre, which could be a place to write or create or to stay for work.
