Paris’ Arsenal district was once home to a convent. The former convent of the Célestins is now one of the sites occupied by the Republican Guard.
This flat dominates the Seine along Quai-Henri-IV, created in 1843 on the site of the old Ile-Louviers. It is unquestionably a district favoured by those who love water, river navigation and boats.
The promenade along the embankments, now a great classic, makes it possible to cross Paris from east to west on foot or by bike. Less exposed, that linking La-Bastille marina to the Seine gives a different perspective of the Marais district, with a unique view of the marina and its boats. It is dotted with restaurant terraces.
The Saint-Paul area and Ile-Saint-Louis, a stone’s throw from this flat, abound in excellent small food shops. Just opposite, across the bridge, the Jardin-des-Plantes and its menagerie form a green open space in the city centre.
And lastly, families will have trouble choosing between the renowned state and private schools.
Quai-de-la-Rapée and Sully-Morland underground stations as well as several bus routes or the more original Batobus make it easy to get around the French capital.
The entrance hall provides access to a living room via two glazed doors on the right-hand side.
Two large, south-west facing, picture windows open on to a balcony, like a large, luminous screen looking out over the Seine and the Jardin-des-Plantes.
Separated by double doors, it extends into a room which could be used as a bedroom, a dining room or a study. The corridor, on the left-hand side of the hall, goes around the stairwell, providing access to the rear of the flat.
A cupboard and a shower room, with a toilet, adjoin a first bedroom. The latter has a small toilet and a cupboard. It faces east, looking out over a large, quiet courtyard.
The room next to it is laid out as a fitted kitchen, with an eating area and a window overlooking the same courtyard. Two other bedrooms also look out over this courtyard. They are followed by a separate toilet, a large bathroom, with two wash-hand basins, a bidet and a bath, as well as by a large storage room which could easily become a dressing room.
This section of the flat, facing the second entrance door, could be divided in order to create an independent office or a second flat.
The watery Arsenal district features the confluence of the Saint-Martin canal and the river Seine.
The river gives the flat the daily gift of a view of its boats. The foliage of the Jardin-des-Plantes forms a verdant background as do the trees lining the embankment. The sun-facing light and its reflections illuminate this scenery beautifully.
Easy to move around, the superb layout of these spacious rooms makes this flat a very pleasant and comfortable place to live, especially for a large family. Its two entrances also make it possible to envisage a division for an independent office or a second flat.
All these assets facing the Seine in the midst of the French capital can but appeal.
