near to Luxembourg Palace and Odéon theatre
Half-way between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Luxembourg Gardens, in Paris’ 6th arrondissement, Rue-de-Condé is one of those Parisian streets whose history is written in stone. It was named after the Princes of Condé, a rival family of the Bourbons. No longer in existence, their mansion house has been replaced by a succession of elegant, 18th century buildings, visited by Beaumarchais, Pascal as well as George-Sand. This street, directly linking the French capital’s emblematic Senate and Odéon districts is in an ideal location. Tourists from the world over frequent the chic boutiques and theatres, whilst students and politicians patronise the historic cafés. Enthusiasts of architecture roam the paved streets exploring their emblematic heritage: from Saint-Germain market to Saint-Sulpice church. Renowned schools and centuries-old universities are but a few minutes’ walk away, as is Odéon underground station (200 metres).
The building was constructed in 1780 on a plot then occupied by the former gardens of the Hôtel-de-Condé. Its dressed stone facade and overall architecture are typical of the time, with central carriage gates and a paved courtyard to the rear of the building. A mezzanine precedes the noble or first floor of the building, which features numerous tall windows, protected by railings in the form of stone balusters. Pediments alternately adorn the windows, confirming the building’s nobility.
This 101 m² flat is on the first floor of the building which was, by definition, the noble floor of Parisian buildings in early modern times. This level was given very high ceilings which, in this case, go up to a height of 4.10 m. This flat, entered via double doors opening into a vestibule, takes up the entire floor. Renovated throughout just a few years ago and little lived in since, its architectural features have been carefully preserved.
The dining room, overlooking the street, is illuminated via two French windows, with baluster railings. The lounge is enhanced with wainscoting and a black marble fireplace, topped with a trumeau. The study (which could be converted into an additional bedroom) also has a black marble fireplace and a wall cupboard. All these rooms are laid with herringbone pattern parquet flooring. The French windows are protected by indoor shutters, composed of two folding panels, and baluster railings.
The fully fitted kitchen is on the courtyard side. The main bedroom, with its wainscoting, its parquet flooring and its grey marble fireplace, topped with a trumeau, faces south. It is extended by a dressing room and a private bathroom, with a bath, a wash-hand basin and a toilet. This flat also has a second shower room, with a shower, and a separate toilet, with a wash-hand basin. Furthermore, this flat comes with a vast cellar in the basement.
This flat, once home to a senator, is in a privileged part of the French capital and is equidistant from the best schools and renowned restaurants, Luxembourg Palace and the lively Odéon district. The resolutely classical aesthetics of the premises exhibit a tasteful interior and reflect a certain art of living: the wood of the parquet flooring enhances that of the indoor shutters, the adjoining rooms are an invitation to entertain and the through light will be a never-ending source of inspiration. One of the major assets of this flat is that it was renovated a few years ago. What better way to take immediate advantage of the delights of Paris’ Left Bank?
