A 202 m², 2-storey flat, like a house on the roof, overlooking
a main tranquil courtyard, separated from the Louvre by the Seine
Paris, PARIS paris 75007 FR


Quai-Voltaire, directly in front of the Carrousel bridge leading to the Louvre, is named after the writer of the same name in Paris’ 7th arrondissement. It is home to several illustrious mansion houses that were built in the 17th and 18th centuries. This family flat, alongside the Seine, is set in these historic and artistic surroundings, near to the prestigious École-des-Beaux-Arts (National School of Fine Arts) and numerous art galleries. This district, in the heart of the French capital, has an excellent public transport network, making it easy to reach all four corners of the city.


Up until 1733, the building and its neighbouring twin were but one property, linked by an underground passageway to the other side of Rue-Bourbon (now Rue-de-Lille) which was used as an outer bailey. The ground floor and the mezzanine, laid out on either side of the stately carriage gates, once housed the kitchens and the pantries. These are topped, on the first floor, by a wide gallery with wrought iron railings, looking out over the Seine, facing the Grande-Galerie of the Louvre.
The solid oak wood carriage gates, fitted with a modern remote-controlled opening system, provide access to the entrance passageway, followed by the interior courtyard, both lined with Tuscan-order columns. The stables were to be found in the courtyard.
A large stairway, or a discreet lift, provides access to the 4th floor and the front door of this flat.
The entrance corridor, running alongside the first two bedrooms, a dressing room and a bathroom, leads to a large reception room, spanning more than 45 m², with a dining room area, an open-plan kitchen and a bar. The original interior stairway goes up to the 5th floor and to an artist’s studio, with a mezzanine, spanning almost 50 m². It has a 5 m high ceiling. Numerous openings provide views of the Parisian rooftops and the south facade of the Louvre. Opposite, with sloping ceilings, are a study, a 3rd bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom. This perfectly quiet, unoverlooked flat faces west, looking out over the main courtyard. This property comes with a basement cellar and it would also be possible to purchase a car parking space in the courtyard.

The 2-storey flat

The stately entrance to this former mansion house, via a high, vaulted and paved passageway, lined with columns, leads to the main courtyard, characterised by the large wooden doors of the old stables, and to the building entrance.

Fourth floor
The discreet entrance to the flat immediately expresses this property’s peaceful, elegant atmosphere. The very large living room integrates a dining room with its wooden bar and an open-plan, fully fitted kitchen. The corridor, with its oak wood parquet flooring, leads to the first two bedrooms, a dressing room, a bathroom and a guest toilet. The wooden, interior stairway, with its steel railings exudes character. It leads to the top floor.
Fifth floor
The 5th floor landing, covered with old terracotta floor tiles, opens into the artist’s studio. The ceiling of this extremely large, bright room is more than 5 m high. Large windows look out over the Parisian rooftops. The highly original loophole window was once used by the painter for taking his biggest canvasses outside. The wrought iron mezzanine makes it possible to go up even higher and to glimpse the Louvre.
The section on the other side, with its sloping ceilings, comprises a study, a third bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom. The exposed wooden panelling and the sloping roof contribute to the character exuded throughout the flat.

Our opinion

This flat is cosy and welcoming despite its magnificent views, its stately communal areas and its impressively-sized rooms. The fact that it is high up and looks out over the main courtyard of the old mansion house also makes it quiet. Its layout means that there is plenty of room for every member of the family. The decorative features and the sight of Paris through the windows is a daily delight. The feeling of living in one of the most beautiful and most interesting districts of Paris corresponds quite simply to reality.
