An Apartment in Paris with Potential

Paris Apartment

Okay, so perhaps to call this place “an apartment” was being generous; it’s more like a construction site, or a prison dungeon out of an Alexandre Dumas novel or something. But that’s why I said it has potential. The apartment is on the ground floor of a building along the Quai d’Orléans, right along the Seine, on the Île Saint-Louis. The building dates back to 1639, making it one of the oldest buildings in the city. Don’t you love seeing all that old stone, and the original fireplace mantel? Normally at this point I’d highlight its bathroom or number of bedrooms, but, um, aside from the historical details, the main thing this place has going for it is that it’s a blank (and dusty) canvas. Though the view ain’t too bad, either. The listing encourages you to use your imagination, which frankly isn’t all that difficult, given that it’s only 335 ft2, or 33m2.

And because real estate is just ridiculous in Paris, this 335 ft2 empty studio can be yours for the totally reasonable price of €485,000. Zut alors!

  • Your father and brother would be the ONLY 2 people I would trust converting this space…..

  • It does have potential. But the price. Why, real estate? WHY?

  • in florida we have a lot of old forts and this reminds me of those! however, this one is in paris. i’d stay there even if it didn’t come with a bed bc IT’S PARIS.

  • it’s insanely expensive, isn’t it. but not a bad place to live. how is your holiday going????

  • 335 square feet? Tiny home indeed!

  • J’aime le potentiel de cet appartement ! Je peux imaginé très bien la déco et même je peut m’imagine dedans ! Mais je crois que c’est un peu chère finalement…
