Paris apartment for sale 6th arrondissement

Step into this beautiful Parisian apartment for sale in Saint-Germain.

Every time we find the perfect apartment for one of our clients looking to buy property in Paris, it’s such a joy that we often fall in love with the apartments as well. That’s exactly what happened when we helped a longtime Paris Perfect client find her dream home nestled in the heart of the chic Saint-Germain neighborhood along historic rue du Dragon.

This beautiful apartment is owned by world famous author, Louise Penny, whose best-selling novels about Chief Inspector Armand Gamache have been published in 23 languages. Her great love for the City of Light made it one of her favorite writing destinations. Here’s where much of the creativity happened! With historic wooden beams, charming views, and Louise’s artistic touches, it’s truly a perfect Parisian home. However, she’s now looking for a bigger place, which means you have the chance to own this very special pied-à-terre in the heart of Paris!

An Open Plan Design for Parisian Living

From the moment you step into this apartment, you’re surrounded by a lovely sense of history. Original wooden beams from the 1800s decorate the ceiling, adding their rich, deep hue and characteristic decorative style to the space. With two large French windows, there’s fabulous light in the living area, along with absolutely charming views looking out on rue du Dragon. Louise was right to place a sofa directly facing the view – it’s oh so Parisian! While you’ll enjoy having the windows open, they’re also double-paned for total calm and comfort.

Charming buildings along rue du Dragon.

The open plan design couldn’t be more convenient. The spacious living area has plenty of room for a seating area anchored by the decorative fireplace as well as a dining area that opens to the beautiful kitchen. It’s the perfect space to enjoy relaxed evenings at home in Paris or even spend time with family or friends visiting.

Beautiful modern kitchen with sleek cabinets.

Although located in a historic building, this property has an energy rating of D, which is excellent for an older building. This means that there won’t be any problems for rentals going forward (ratings less than D will need renovation in order to legally rent) if you choose to rent the property when you’re not in Paris. Short term furnished rentals are no longer legal for second homes in Paris, however, this property is absolutely perfect for the long stay furnished rental market (1 month or more) which is legal and in great demand. It’s all the little—and not so little—details like this that make it so important to work with a team like ours when buying property in Paris. Find out more about our Property Search Services here.

Another perk of rue du Dragon is that it’s very close to both the Seine and Luxembourg Gardens, which you’ll love for evening strolls or enjoying time outdoors right in the heart of Paris.

The artistic spirit of the neighborhood is still very much alive. Grab a seat at one of the tables and you might just find yourself inspired by the beauty of Paris too!
