A 67 m², two-storey flat and its flower-filled terrace, with a view over the Panthéon,
in Rue-Saint-Jacques near Luxembourg Gardens
Paris, PARIS paris 75005 FR

Location

Rue-Saint-Jacques, an old, main road through the Gallo-Roman town, was used during medieval times by numerous pilgrims following the Way of Saint James from Saint-Jacques-la-Boucherie church, of which the Saint-Jacques tower is the last vestige. This flat is near Rue-Pierre-et-Marie-Curie and just a stone’s throw from the Panthéon. Nowadays, this district abounds in world-famous buildings such as the École-Normale-Supérieure, the French Sénat, the Henri-IV and Louis-Le-Grand sixth form colleges and many more. Students from these prestigious schools and politicians fill the illustrious Rostand and Polidor cafés. Luxembourg RER line B train station is nearby as are several bus stops.

Description

The very sober, dressed stone building still exudes the majesty of its era: it was constructed in the 18th century by Marie-Joseph-Peyre, architect to King Louis XVI, as a rental building for Saint-Jacques Convent. The semi-circular arched carriage doorway provides access via the carriage passageway to a paved courtyard. This flat, on the second floor, can be reached via a wooden stairway, with terracotta tile treads. Spanning a floor surface area of 67 m² and facing east-west, this flat opens into a living room, with a fireplace, illuminated via three windows giving an unobstructed view, featuring facades and foliage. A modern kitchen adjoins a study. A bright bedroom, next to a small bathroom, is followed by a flight of steps going up to the floor above, where there is a second bedroom and a little terrace with a view of the Panthéon.

The two-storey flat and its little terrace

All visitors are immediately impressed by the luminosity, the tranquillity and the view. The light from the east and the west as well as the white walls diffuse a uniform clarity. Double doors, glazed with small panes, act as a reminder of the era of the premises, just like the light-coloured oak wood parquet flooring, the woodwork and the pinkish terracotta floor tiles. A 24 m² living room features a fireplace, in good working order, flanked by two bookshelf units. Three sets of windows provide a coloured panoramic view featuring white or brick facades, foliage, zinc roofs and atria. A kitchen, with black stoneware floor tiles and white walls, has been modernised. Nearby, a little room also overlooking the paved courtyard is illuminated via a yellow wall. On the other side of the entrance, in the main bedroom, an exposed stone wall acts as a bedhead, standing facing a vast wardrobe. Next to this, a small bathroom. A discreet flight of steps goes to the top floor of this 2-storey flat comprising a second bedroom and its shower room as well as the flower-filled terrace with its view of the Panthéon.

Our opinion

Built during the Age of Reason by an architect made famous by his Parisian creations such as the Odéon theatre, the 18th century building is equal to this delightful 2-storey flat where tranquillity and light take pride of place. Its stone walls and its curved beams are but an invitation for reflection and relaxation. Some improvement works are needed to perfectly reinstate the authenticity of this pied-à-terre or residential flat, enhanced with its little terrace and its view of the Panthéon, set in the midst of the Latin district, abounding in food shops and cultural centres.
