With views of the palace of the Legion of Honor, this building on the quais of the Seine offers an extremely rare property in Paris’ 7th district. The 214m² apartment is on the first floor with elevator of an impressive turn of the 19th century building. A short walk to the Tuileries gardens, Saint Germain des Prés and the Invalides, this is the heart of Paris.

Despite the central location, the apartment is extremely quiet. Building bylaws authorize residential and professionl use, and the property is currently used as a mix of office and living space. Original features such as ornate mouldings, marble fireplaces and herringbone oak flooring make for great refurbishment potential. In addition to three reception rooms, two of which overlook the Legion d’honneur, thre are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an eat-in kitchen. The building offers a live-in concierge and large cellars in the former stables. A parking space in the courtyard may be rented.

Multiple entrances and few load bearing walls mean up to 6 bedrooms are possible, with a seperate or open kitchen. And with two entrances, two smaller separate apartments could be created. The property provides a blank canvas for a buyer looking to create according to their style and needs.

The apartment sits in an elegant residential neighborhood. Close to the boulevard Saint Germain, it is home to the Musée d’Orsay, the antique dealers’ neighborhood and Parliament. The charming shopping streets rue de Bourgogne and rue du Bac are also close by. The property lies just meters from the Seine and the metro, RER, bus and even boat transport links.

Once restored, this unique property will make for an ideal primary residence and/or office space, pied-à-terre or rental investment.
