A little house with a balcony
nestling behind a 17th century building on the Ile-Saint-Louis
Paris, PARIS paris 75004 FR


Facing the right bank, the building looks out over the Seine and neighbours a good many mansion houses, including the Hotel-de-Lauzun and the famous Hotel-Lambert, built by Louis-le-Vau, the favourite architect of Louis XIV. The embankment is home to one of Paris’ smallest theatres, nestling at the end of a wooded alleyway. These properties, bearing witness to the Golden Age, stand near to good restaurants and food shops that make the area so pleasant and lively. There is also a good public transport system for getting around Paris, with bus routes and underground stations as well as the RER train line which provides a direct link to Orly and Roissy airports.


In a 17th century building, carriage doors, fitted with a numerical keypad security system, open into an entrance hall. It features stone walls and floor as well as an iron gate, fitted with an interphone security system, protecting access to the floors. Double glazed doors lead to a paved, wooded courtyard.
This little house stands at the end of this courtyard. The living rooms, including a lounge with French windows that open on to the courtyard and a semi-open-plan kitchen with a dining area, are on the ground floor. Upstairs is a large bedroom with a balcony and above, under the roof, a bathroom and a dressing room. The house was designed and decorated by a well-known architect.

The house

This little house nestles, out of sight of onlookers, at the end of a courtyard, behind a screen of bamboo and other plants. A glazed door opens into an entrance hall, the left-hand wall of which is lined with built-in cupboards. Straight on, the dining area, with its bench seat and two wooden tables, brings small Parisian cafés to mind. On the right-hand side, separated by workshop-style glazing, is a fully fitted kitchen. Built-in, all the units are made of wood and illuminated by a wide picture window. A small lobby houses a toilet with a wash-hand basin. These areas are delimited by floor tiles laid in a geometric pattern.
The lounge is illuminated by four large French windows overlooking the courtyard. An ethanol-fired fireplace and solid wood parquet flooring help to create an atmosphere resembling that of a country house. A study and a bookshelf unit, also built-in, provide a work area.
A comfortable wooden stairway in the entrance hall goes upstairs. A large bedroom is filled with daylight by two picture windows that provide access on to the balcony. The varying heights of the ceiling in this room divide it in an obvious way. It features numerous built-in cupboards and oak wood parquet flooring, making it warm and cosy.
The stairway continues up to another level where a dressing room and a bathroom have been laid out. The latter, under the roof, has a window looking out over the verdant setting and is fitted with a bath, a wash-hand basin and built-in cupboards, one of which conceals a laundry room area. The floor is covered with stoneware tiles.

Our opinion

All kinds of contradictory aspirations are resumed here. The paved courtyard will be visited but by the new owners. A house in the French capital is such an ideal that potential buyers are prepared to accept a district, not quite so central; this one being in the inner sanctum of Ile-Saint-Louis. With just a few steps, it is possible to lean on the parapet of one of the French capital’s quietest embankments and watch the Seine flow past. The interior has been tastefully and cleverly laid out. And so that this little miracle has everything, there is even a balcony. Perhaps, perfection does exist after all.
