This flat is on Boulevard-Saint-Michel where it crosses Luxembourg Gardens and Rue-Soufflot. Said road was created in 1855 on the orders of Baron-Haussmann. Emblematic of the French capital, it connects the Observatory to the river Seine. It runs alongside the Observatory and Luxembourg Gardens, passes the Hôtel-de-Cluny and the Panthéon, before coming to an end on the banks of the Seine by Saint-Michel fountain. This main road, a favourite meeting place of the protestors in May 1968, is now much quieter and yet it is still part of the lively student district with its many book shops, including the famous Gibert-Jeune, its little cafés and jazz clubs in Rue-de-la-Huchette. With Lycée-Saint-Louis and Lycée-Montaigne, the Sorbonne and the Ecole-des-Mines, there numerous highly prestigious schools. It also has an excellent public transport system with the RER line B train line, Cluny and Odéon underground stations as well as many bus routes.
The six storey building looks out on to Boulevard-Saint-Michel. Constructed in 1901 in a Haussmannian style, its stone facade features six French windows set out on every floor. Fine, interwoven wrought iron balconies gracefully enhance the corbelling and the dentil courses. A carved wooden door closes the building’s entrance hall. The stairway features a bright red carpet runner. This co-owned building is immaculately kept.
This renovated flat is fully furnished. The entrance gallery, illuminated via a French window opening on to a light well, comprises a guest cloakroom and a laundry room, cleverly concealed behind discreet cupboard doors. A veined marble bathroom adjoins a guest toilet. On the right-hand side is a first bedroom, with a dressing room, looking out over the rooftops and the building’s inner courtyard. An impressive white marble fireplace takes pride of place in a living room, with light-coloured oak wood parquet flooring. This very bright room is illuminated via a series of French windows that open on to a wide balcony running alongside the flat. A dining room opens into a kitchen featuring sober, refined units, clad with a rare wood. The work surfaces are made of marble. A second bedroom or a study, set behind the dining room and overlooking the inner courtyard, has its own private toilet. The last bedroom, laid out on the right-hand side of the living room, is a vast suite comprising a double-aspect shower room and a separate toilet. It is possible to see the superb dome of the Panthéon as well as Notre-Dame’s spire from the balcony.
On the threshold of Paris’ most famous gardens and just a stone’s throw from the crypt in the Panthéon where some of France’s most illustrious men and women are laid to rest, this flat looks out over centuries from its high balcony. Its comfortable, refined and luminous rooms have been made even more harmonious courtesy of major renovation works. New owners will have but to unpack their suitcases in order to take advantage of this particularly prestigious setting, steeped in romanticism and always full of life. Currently laid out with three bedrooms, it could appeal to a small family who would easily be able to settle in. And should the balcony not provide enough room, the children will be able to play in Luxembourg Gardens, known locally as “Luco”.
