A 90m² top-floor Parisian apartment with a continuous balcony and
clear view, nestled in the French capital’s 10th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75010 FR


Back in Roman times, the 10th arrondissement of Paris was only marshland when the Romans decided to build two roads leading out of Lutetia here. These roads were respectively the ancestors of today’s streets Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Denis and Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Martin. The road on which the apartment is located owes its names to Edmé Bouchardon (1698–1762), a sculptor who won the Prix de Rome in 1722 with a relief sculpture centred on the biblical subject of Gideon choosing his soldiers. Bouchardon was appointed as a sculptor of King Louis XV of France in 1732. Today, the capital’s 10th arrondissement is a vibrant area of Paris, especially through its vast square Place de la République, its cafés and its theatres along the city’s famous Grands Boulevards. The district has two train stations, three hospitals and a well-known canal. The apartment is not far from the metro stations République, Strasbourg-Saint-Denis, Jacques Bonsergent and Château d’Eau.


The corner edifice in which the apartment lies has five floors as well as a top floor that was formerly used for domestic staff. It stands on a calm street in the heart of the 10th arrondissement of Paris, not far from the district’s town hall. The building’s elevations are rendered and pale. They are elegantly understated in style and punctuated with wrought-iron guardrails and wooden louvred shutters. The entrance door that leads into the edifice is fitted with an entry code system and an intercom for security. It takes you into a hallway with a lift and a staircase of polished wood that was recently renovated. Each landing connects to two apartments. Up on the fifth floor, the apartment’s entrance door leads into a hallway with a floor of cement tiles. On the left, there is a kitchen with a floor area of around 9m². It faces south and includes an eating area. On the right, there is a lounge with a floor area of around 33m². Its four sets of French windows, which are not at all overlooked, bathe this spacious room in natural light and lead out onto the continuous balcony. A fireplace could easily be installed on the large wall where a fireplace once stood. A wooden quarter-turn staircase painted white leads up to a bedroom with sloping attic ceilings. This bedroom offers a floor area of around 20m². Three dormer windows with balconies fill it with natural light. Back in the hallway, opposite the entrance door, a corridor connects to two bedrooms that each offer a floor area of around 11m² and lead out onto the continuous balcony. Lastly, at the end of the corridor, there is a bathroom with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. This bathroom requires some renovation. There is a separate lavatory beside the bathroom. Modern wood strip flooring and mosaic parquet, which is older, extend across the apartment, except in the corridor, kitchen and bathroom, which each have their own tiled floors. All the windows are double-glazed. The gas heating is provided on a private basis rather than a communal basis.
