There are a few one-of-a-kind locations in every great city, those undeniably sought after and special places. In Paris those one of a kind locations include, among others, Place Dauphine, the Champs de Mars, St. Sulpice and certainly the Place des Vosges. This is a gorgeous spot in Paris, and if you've always dreamed of calling it home then we have some news you won't want to miss. We’ve discovered a beautifully remodeled two bedroom, one bathroom and two powder room duplex apartment for sale on the historic Place des Vosges!
Over the years, many of our guests and readers have contacted us for guidance and help finding their own pied-à-terre in Paris so they could enjoy living like a Parisian. We’ve taken your requests to heart and over the past year have developed our own search service for buyers. This is a passion for us which means we carefully scrutinize and only select the properties we ourselves would want to live in! In most cases, we end up renting and managing the apartment for our buyer, which means we don’t walk away after the contract is signed. Our choices, our input and help on remodeling must stand the test of time. We would rather tell a client to walk away than have them make the wrong decision.
We’re particularly excited to announce this now, because the strong US dollar means it’s a compelling time to buy real estate in Paris. If you’ve been dreaming of waking up to romantic Paris views from your very own windows, strolling through beautiful parks and charming cobblestone streets on the way to the market then there's no better time than the present to buy an apartment in Paris.
Place des Vosges Two Bedroom Apartment for Sale:
This two bedroom apartment for sale is located at Place des Vosges, often considered one of the most beautiful squares in Paris. Its striking red brick and yellow limestone buildings were constructed from 1605-1612 under the reign of Henri IV, and was originally called Place Royale. It has been an address fit for kings ever since! This exclusive setting is one of the most sought-after in Paris, and this apartment is accessed from the arched stone gallery surrounding Place des Vosges. Just imagine calling one of the most stylish addresses in Paris home!
Step inside the building from the arcade on Place des Vosges through a beautiful stone arch and ancient wooden door. This impeccably maintained building has a modern elevator that takes you to the 5th floor (6th floor American), where you’ll step into a fully remodeled, light filled apartment. You can see yourself living here the moment you walk in the door – from the comfortable sofa and living room to the fully remodeled kitchen and peaceful bedrooms.
What I especially like about this apartment isn’t just the location, its history, beauty and views: it’s the fact that the sales price is based on the number of square meters that measure more than 1.80 meters in height or more than 5 ft 11 inches – 60.8 square meters (654.4 square feet). However, the space that measures less than 5’11” is considerable, almost 21.6 meters or an additional 232.5 square feet. The standard rule is counting half of that additional space as livable – so the size averages 72 square meters (775 square feet) and price per square meter drops to a reasonable €17,764/m2. All of the space has been beautifully put to use in every room, from the kitchen to the bathrooms, bedrooms and living room. A few extra design touches in the apartment, and you will have a stunning home.
The price assuming 72m2 (775 ft2) of livable space is € 1,279,000, or € 17,764/m2. This is a reasonable price for an exquisitely remodeled apartment surrounding Place des Vosges.
We loved the open space of the kitchen, dining room and living area! The comfortable fuchsia and purple sofa with large ottomans invites you to relax after a day of exploring Paris. With a few simple décor ideas, such as a cluster of pictures or lovely oil painting behind the sofa, a comfortable armchair, more lighting and accessories – it will be stunning.
The dining area is spacious and ideal for dinners at home or entertaining. Perfect to move into tomorrow and with some interesting lighting will create a real statement. No touches are needed next to the windows; the beautiful slate rooftops of the historic buildings that surround you are the only pictures and décor you need from the windows!
The kitchen has been remodeled with the highest attention to detail and offers every appliance to cook a gourmet meal, from convection oven to large frig/freezer. Love the touch of lime green inside the open cupboards for storage. Next to the kitchen there's also a powder room with toilet and sink, which is handy for guests and extra visitors.
Walk up the wide staircase to the bedrooms, bathroom and powder room. Each bedroom is well designed and uses every square inch efficiently. Imagine waking up to that view each morning! This apartment has amazing sunny views over a beautiful private courtyard in one direction and in the other the historic hôtel particulier Colbert de Villacerf on rue de Turenne. Colbert was the Chief Inspector of all building works in France in the 1600s – and his home remained in his family for over one hundred years – what a view!
Every detail has been cleverly designed to maximize space, including the storage throughout this apartment. The second bedroom has a wall of custom designed closets that fit into the slant of the Mansard roof perfectly.
The bathroom as well features custom cut mirrors and fittings to not just work with the space, but to highlight it as the unique design feature it truly is. In addition, there is a separate toilet and sink, meaning extra getting-ready room.
For a better glimpse, enjoy a walk through this apartment, from the main entrance on the Place to it’s beautiful airy rooms!
The apartment also offers a basement cellar – excellent for storing wine and bicycles. In addition, a parking spot is available for sale – a rare luxury in the Marais – for an additional € 85,000.
We think this is a wonderful apartment at a good price, especially considering that it's in one the very best locations in the Marais, surrounded by restaurants, boutiques and museums. If you've been thinking about buying that dream Paris apartment and love the Place des Vosges and Marais neighborhood, then this might just be the perfect apartment for you!
