Renovated 2 bed / 2 bath apartment in Paris’ 6th might be the world’s most perfect pied-a-terre
Paris flats come in many shapes and sizes, but seldom do we see apartments that are as incredibly efficient and well located as this 50m2 (560 square ft.) two bedroom, two bath apartment on rue Bonaparte in the Saint Germain area of the 6th arrondissement, just a block from the church of Saint Germain and two blocks from the river Seine. The first floor apartment (2nd floor American) boasts a generous kitchen and storage as well as location, location, location. Offered at 925,000€ FAI.
Most places in Paris were constructed in a different era and designed for a different life. The kitchen was often hidden away at the back of the apartment so that the cook and maid weren’t underfoot. But times have changed and buyers now are often looking for smaller, more efficient properties that are easier to maintain. It’s can be incredibly difficult to find an affordable pied-a-terre in Paris that offers room to sleep 6, a kitchen large enough to prepare a full meal and bathrooms that meet today’s standards, but this apartment has all that – plus an unbeatable location. Bright and airy with a view over a quiet street, yet located in the heart of the the Saint Germain area of Paris’ 6th arrondissement. The 18th century building is both charming and ancient. The apartment has original stone walls and timber beams hidden beneath its glossy renovation that could be exposed if one prefers a more rustic look. The master bedroom has an en-suite bath and the second bedroom and living area are served by a hall bath that discreetly hides laundry machines. Abundant storage in the apartment and a storage cellar in the basement of the building make this apartment perfect for daily living. Perhaps the best thing about the apartment though, is its location. When everyone else has to go back to their hotel, you’ll already be home.
