SPECIAL EDITION: For Sale – An American’s Dream Paris Entertainment Pied-à-Terre
One of our long-standing readers and friends, a resident in France, decided to sell his beautiful and newly renovated apartment located on rue Saint-Martin, the western side of Le Marais in the 3rd arrondissement, just steps from the Centre Pompidou, the newly revitalized Forum des Halles and three Métro lines — Arts et Métiers, Etienne Marcel and Rambuteau.
He completely renovated the apartment just a few years ago with the idea of the perfect entertainment space — by opening up the living room, dining room and kitchen — and with all his bright ideas, it fulfilled the dream of spacious living and entertaining.
The 75.3 square meters (810 square feet) amazingly accommodates two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is en-suite to the master bedroom. The other is independent and has a big “bagnoire” (bathtub), so that you will never be waiting for your guests to finish luxuriating in their bath, as is the “powder room” separate to accommodate a full house of friends or renters. The smaller second bedroom has two built-in “Murphy” style beds that fold away into the wall, with large windows on the hallway making a perfect room for kids, guests or even an office.
Located in a typical 19th-century “maison” (built in 1870) on the third floor, the beams and stone walls have been exposed to release its original charm. A working fireplace adds a special touch. Light, bright and in neutral tones, the apartment is easy for anyone’s taste to move right into and settle-in, making it your own.
The apartment comes with its own cellar, or “cave,” of more than 4 square meters with a concrete floor — a real bonus for extra storage. The heating is electric and the front door is “blindée” (with three locking points) for extra security. Annual property taxes and monthly association fees total less than 3,000€ per year.
All appliances are included, but furnishings may also be purchased along with the apartment…or decorate for yourself.
The apartment has been a successful rental when the owner has been traveling and can accommodate up to six guests.
The asking price has been reduced to 830,000€, all agency fees and appliances (valued at more than 14,000€) are included.
(We can assist you getting financing up to 80% of the value.)
Do not wait too long to inquire or place an offer! This property is a winner and will fly off the market!
