A bedroom with built-in storage overlooks the quiet courtyard. Adjacent to the bedroom is a sunny bathroom with colorful tiles.
The street where the property is located is named after its former leather tanning factories. They were on the banks of the Bièvre, a river that once ran through the area.

This diverse district is home to the Gobelins Tapestry Factory that supplied the court of Louis XIV, the François Mitterrand National Library, and the tech incubator Station F.
