Overlooking a tranquil courtyard, this property with an open floor plan loft style, E-W oriented, offers a total of 45m2 living area including mezzanine, residential and commercial use. The main floor offers an expansive living room and an independent kitchen overlooking the East courtyard. The second storey is comprised of a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with a bath and toilet. Needing basic decoration but ready to move in, this apartment is centrally located steps away from Saint-Germain and Musée d’Orsay RER station and all major art galleries and museums, iconic cafes, bars, shops, and restaurants on the Quai Voltaire, in a historical well-maintained property (a former Theatines monastery in 1644). In 1791, the wharf became known as the Quai Voltaire in homage to the writer who died in 1778 in the home of Charles, marquis de Villette, just in the next door building. After Balzac set his novel La Peau de chagrin in the Quai Voltaire, antique shops became common in the quai. In the early nineteenth century the area became a well-known place for booksellers to peddle their wares. This property is ideal as a Pied a Terre with great AirBnB letting potential, for a licenced professional (Lawyer, solicitor,…), as an office (Paris head office, architect, publishing,…) or a clinic (doctor, physiotherapist,..). Great opportunity to own a piece of the City of Lights.
