A 46 m² flat in a 17th century building
just a stone’s throw from Place-Saint-Sulpice
Paris, PARIS paris 75006 FR


The little, quiet paved street, in existence since the 16th century in the mythical district of Saint-Germain-des-Près, is but a stone’s throw from Place-Saint-Sulpice where the impressive and equally famous church takes pride of place. The square is predominantly given over to pedestrians. In its centre, the huge, monumental Four Bishops fountain was built in line with Visconti’s plans in 1844. This much sought-after district, where fashion boutiques vie with well-known cafés and their terraces, restaurants as well as bakeries and where renowned bookshops are still fighting for survival, remains one of the most symbolic of the French capital.


The 17th century house, standing on the corner of Rue-Canivet and Rue-Servandoni, still exudes the charm of its construction era, with decorative features such as its superb carriage doors with their protruding panels, its fake windows and its stone lower sections. Entry is protected via a numerical keypad security system. A paved inner courtyard, dotted with plants, provides access to two buildings. In the one on the right-hand side, this 2nd floor flat can be reached via a 17th century wooden stairway with balusters. An entrance lobby opens into a large, 30 m² room, illuminated by tall windows. A kitchen, on the right-hand side, has two windows looking out over Rue-Canivet. A bathroom and separate toilet are on the other side of the front door. There is wide strip parquet flooring throughout. This bright, quiet flat, with its high ceilings, is in a good state of repair.

The flat

This flat takes up the entire second floor. The front door opens into a lobby which provides access to a large, south and east-facing living room with solid oak wood strip pattern parquet flooring. Copious amounts of light flood in through three tall, double-glazed windows, two of which look out over Rue-Servandoni and the third over Rue-Canivet. The ceiling beams are painted white with the exception of the main beam which stills reflects it original wood colour. A tiled bathroom, aired via a fanlight, includes a bath and a wash-hand basin. The toilet is separate. The fully fitted kitchen, with its hexagonal terracotta floor tiles, is illuminated via two windows. A large cupboard, with its wall shelves, provides plenty of storage space.

Our opinion

Living in the Saint-Sulpice district is to deliberately choose one of the noblest, perhaps the noblest, in the French capital. It is where an entire civilisation is represented. Religion, via Servandoni church, the old seminary and its fountain with four very French preachers and writers, Bossuet, Fénelon, Massillon and Fléchier. Politics, via Luxembourg Palace, home to the French Senate, to be found at the end of the street. Intellectual life, via the bookshops. And conviviality, so well embodied by the café in the square where several films have been shot. The proximity of prestigious shops becomes almost commonplace. All of which just goes to prove that this totally tranquil flat, in this exceptional setting, can but be a safe investment, if it is not lived in all year round or used as a pied-à-terre.
