Paris 75002 - Montorgueil / Marais - 2beds (T3) 69m2

On the former triumphal road of the royal entrances to the capital, in the heart of an old district, beautiful loft arranged as a bright 3 room apartment for a total of 69 m2 with 5 large windows.
Great potential for this property located on the 4th floor of an 1890 building including an entrance hall overlooking a large reception room with open plan kitchen enjoying exceptional brightness thanks to its 3 large windows, and a really quiet night area with 2 bedrooms overlooking a courtyard, a dressing room, a modern bathroom with shower and separate toilets that need to be perhaps redesigned.

This apartment offers the most sought-after dream coming true: an absolute calm - thanks to its location at the back of an enormous courtyard - in the centre of Paris, near the Passage du Grand Cerf, 260m from rue Montorgueil and a stone's throw from the Porte Saint-Denis.

On the verge of becoming a pedestrian street, it is one of the oldest streets in Paris: its axis was designed by the Romans in the 1st century. It extends from rue de Rivoli (1st arrondissement) in the south to boulevard Saint-Denis (2nd arrondissement) in the north.

Today, there are clothing stores, trendy bars and restaurants. An effort by the Town Hall with a neighbourhood rehabilitation programme is allowing a new diversity of streets. All types of activities coexist, creating a real dynamism, especially at the Fontaine des Innocents.

Miscellaneous : 4th floor of 5, sunny with 5 French windows overlooking the courtyard, ceiling height 2,75m, exotic parquet flooring, gaz individual heating and hot water system, 2 apartments on this floor, digicode, public car park nearby, possibility to instal elevator, 5 sq m dry cellar, freehold, building renovation voted, 125 € / month service charge, 700 € / year land tax, rental potential approximately 2.000 - 2.400 € / month or weekly vacation rentals in high season (150-160€/day). 

Built over 5 floors, this 1890 property is located in the area of Bonne Nouvelle and comprises 10 apartments (80 in total in the residence).
It is built on a plot of 1008 m2 located 197 m from Etienne Marcel metro station, the nearest one. 

Walking distance to : Paris 4th et the Marais district, town centre and the Grands Boulevard with wonderful shopping, Le Châtelet, Le Palais Royal, Palais Brongniart, Musée des Arts et Métiers, Musée Gourmand du Chocolat & le Musée du Louvre, Square Emile Chautemps, the popular theatres and concert venues of Quartier Montorgueil, Le Grand Rex, amenities of the pedestrianized Rue du Nil, the covered food market of Les Enfants Rouges, ligne de métro 3 | 4 | 8 | 9 | RER A & B. 

2nd Arrondissement - Paris somewhat under-appreciated 2nd arrondissement harbours attractions most tourists never see, including the medieval Jean-Sans-Peur tower, one of the best open streets market in the city, the historic movie theatre, club and concert hall Le Grand Rex and Place des Victoires, a favourite destination for shopping in trendy boutiques. Located on the right bank of the River Seine, the 2nd district, houses the city's most dense concentration of business activities.

The arrondissement contains the former Paris stock exchange, a large number of banking headquarters as well as the textile district, known as the Sentier. It is also the home of most of Paris's surviving 19th-century glazed commercial arcades. At the beginning of that century most of the streets of Paris were dark and muddy and lacked sidewalks.
A few entrepreneurs copied the success of the Passage des Panoramas and its well-lit, dry and paved pedestrian passageways. By the middle of the 19th century there were about two dozen of these commercial malls, but most of them disappeared as the Paris authorities paved the main streets, added sidewalks and gas street lighting.
The commercial survivors are – in addition to the Passage des Panoramas – the Galerie Vivienne, the Passage Choiseul, the Galerie Colbert, the Passage des Princes, du Grand Cerf, du Caire, Lemoine, Jouffroy, Basfour, du Bourg-L'abbé, and the Passage du Ponceau.
