This Ile Saint-Louis property overlooking the Seine is the only freestanding house on the island. The truly unique 1,670 sq. foot 3 storey house with lower level has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Notre Dame Cathedral is on the neighboring Ile de la Cité, both located right in the center of Paris.
Watch the boats go by from the property's dozen French windows. Triple exposure provides plenty of sunlight. Historic and typically Parisian features include herringbone hardwood flooring, high ceilings and original wooden beams.
The main level offers a living/dining area which leads to a mezzanine with a fully equipped semi-open kitchen. The second level offers a spacious master suite with walk-in closet, and a bathroom with double sinks, a tub and shower, and a second WC on the landing. The top floor provides another bedroom suite with full bath and kitchenette.
A separate entrance leads to the lower level with bedroom suite, shower, WC and another full kitchen on the landing. Ideal for guests or staff, an inside stairway connects it to the rest of the house.
The Hôtel Lambert, the legendary private mansion formerly owned by the Rothschild family, is nearby. As is the Hôtel Lauzon where Baudelaire once lived, a period mansion which is now the Parisian Institute for Advanced Studies. The island's only park is also close at hand.
Situated between the Left Bank and the historic Marais district, the Ile Saint Louis remains its own residential village. It offers charming shops and restaurants, cheese and food stores, and several well-known ice cream shops. Transport links are also nearby. It offers a perfectly central location from which to explore the rest of the city from this unique pied-à-terre, rental investment, or primary residence.
