A 50 m², top floor flat with an unobstructed view
200 m from Rue-de-la-Paroisse and the Palace, in the Notre-Dame district of Versailles
Versailles, YVELINES paris 78000 FR


At the beginning of the 1660’s, Louis XIV inaugurated his own reign by deciding to set up court at Versailles. He undertook the construction of a palace, works which took more than 20 years. The town which developed in order to house part of the court was designed in accordance with symmetrical plans and strict instructions to create a harmonious layout around the palace. The first streets in the Notre-Dame district were, therefore, created around 1665 and in 1682, Versailles became capital of the French kingdom. This flat is but two minutes’ walk from the entrance to the Palace and the Royal Opera House, facing Place-d’Armes, just a few minutes from Rue-de-la-Paroisse and its numerous shops. The prestigious Lycée-Hoche is a 10-minute walk away. Versailles-Rive-Gauche and Versailles-Rive-Droite RER line C train stations, with their respective links to the centre of Paris or La-Défense and Saint-Lazare, are a 15-minute walk away.


This flat, in the midst of the Notre-Dame district, is just a stone’s throw from the shops in Rue-de-la-Paroisse, Rive-Droite and Rive-Gauche train stations as well as the Palace. The entrance door is on the 3rd floor. An internal stairway goes up to the 4th and top floor, taken up completely by this flat. Laid out under the roofs, it has sloping ceilings and spans a floor surface area of 34 m², measured according to the French Carrez law, and a ground surface area of 50 m². It comprises a landing, a living room with a kitchen area, a bathroom and two bedrooms, one overlooking the courtyard and the other the street. A cellar completes this property. It is bright courtesy of its unoverlooked windows that provide a clear view over the Versailles roof tops, including Notre-Dame cathedral, with Fausses-Reposes forest on the horizon. A few works need to be scheduled.

The flat

The building was constructed around 1800. With its four stories and its sober facade, in line with the architecture of the time, it blends harmoniously with the surrounding buildings. A numerical keypad security system controls entrance to the hall, illuminated on either side by glazed doors on the road side and looking out over the inner courtyard. The old terracotta floor tiles and the renovated beams of the stairway are an immediate mark of its authenticity and character, reinforced by the wooden steps and the elegant railings. This flat is accessed on the third floor via a glazed door that opens on to a stairway, the steps of which are composed of wood and old terracotta tiles. A landing, with a closed storage area, at the top of the stairs is illuminated via a skylight. It provides access to the living room, spanning a ground surface area of 21 m² (16 m² according to the Carrez law), and its kitchen area. This room, made bright courtesy of its south-facing shed dormer and its skylight, has an unobstructed view over the rooftops in Versailles as far as the forest. On the right-hand side, it communicates via an old wooden door with a bedroom that has a similar view. A small hall area on the left-hand side features a hammered metal wash-hand basin and adjoins a bathroom, with a sloping ceiling and a toilet. A second bedroom, on the courtyard side, is illuminated via a large skylight. All the floors are covered with old terracotta tiles. Numerous beams have been exposed, adding even more character to the premises.

Our opinion

A countrified air reigns within these walls which, in the Royal town, abound in assets. The interior decor contributes greatly to this as does the line of tall trees forming the verdant horizon, beyond the beautiful buildings in the foreground. New owners will carry out works in accordance with their own personal tastes and in keeping with all the old features depending on whether they make this ideally located, character flat their main residence, a pied-à-terre or a rental investment.
