Off-the-Market: One-Bedroom Steps from Le Louvre


Location: 2, rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Paris, France, 1st Arrondissement, Le Louvre

One-Bedroom Steps from Le Louvre
2, rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau
45 m2 (485 sq. ft.), Fourth Floor

Discover this rare one-bedroom apartment just a glance away from the Mona Lisa and Le Louvre! It is doesn’t get more central than this! The historic center of Paris is Le Louvre, and this apartment is just steps away, as is the Seine River, the Jardin des Tuileries, and the sumptuous Palais Royal.

The 1st arrondissement of Paris is as dense and dynamic as they get. It offers a plethora of chic shopping, cafés, and restaurants and puts you dead center in the city so you are walking distance from just about everything. In the months and years ahead, the district will take on an extra shine, thanks to some of the decade’s most significant urban renovations:

Even more significant are the city’s plans to pedestrianize districts one through four destined to immediately increase quality of life and property values!

This apartment has a depth of history in its beams that you would expect from such a district. It’s a fourth-floor easy walkup in a beautifully maintained building owned by an American architect. Building renovations were done as recently as 2019, so there is nothing that needs to be done for many, many years saving you lots of future expense.

You enter the 45 square meter apartment directly into the spacious living room located on the corner of the building with its three windows bathing the room in light. It’s impossible to ignore the authentic and centuries-old wood beams both in the ceiling and walls. (The beams are currently a traditional dark tone, but can be sanded down to a very light color.)

From the living room, you walk into a central space from which the other rooms can be accessed: the bedroom with two windows on the right (also bathed in light!); the bathroom, and kitchen on the left. (Although the current configuration is entirely functional, there are no supporting walls in this area preventing a new floor plan that may be even more enjoyable.)

The apartment is sold entirely furnished with appliances, furnishings, drapes, linens, kitchenware and utensils, estimated at 5,000€. Property taxes are estimated at €520 a year, co-ownership charges at €1,650 a year, electricity at €1,200 a year.
