Sébastopol (images above): With lovely views over the rooftops of Paris, this attic apartment for four people is located on the sixth floor of a listed apartment block on one of Hausmann’s boulevards. The old attic, which originally served as the servants’ quarters, has been converted into a modern, 70 square meter apartment. The floor-to-ceiling picture windows which mirror the structure of the old galvanized-iron roof, flood the apartment with light and give a view over the rooftops of Paris, onto the boulevard and the park opposite.
Whether from the open plan living, dining and kitchen area, from the bedroom located on the quieter side street, or even from the bathtub and shower: the view is omnipresent. If you prefer the whole panorama, just climb up to the roof terrace and enjoy the 360 degree view of the monuments of Paris. And while you’re there you could even pick a few herbs for dinner.
Studio: Near the Centre Pompidou the German owner offers another apartment. The 25 sq m studio for two people is located on the attic floor (6th floor) of a listed building from the 16th century. Unlike the Sébastopol apartment there is no elevator, but it has the charm of one of the oldest houses in town with old beams and a natural stone wall in the living room. Natural materials correspond with each other: parquet floors, wooden furniture, stone walls and a granite bathroom floor.
The kitchen block is built as a room divider, on the back there is the bed over the large base cabinets, and even the space beneath the stairs is used as a bed – from here you can look at the starry night sky over Paris. parquet floors, wooden furniture, stone walls and the granite bathroom floor.
