A beautiful three bedroom Haussmannian apartment on the third floor, perfectly located in the Southern part of the trendy 'Haut Marais' area of Paris' 3rd arrondissement.
The property boasts many original features, including original marble fireplaces in nearly every room, original mouldings and herringbone wood floors.
The main common areas of the building have already been recently updated, with the intercom system, building façade, staircase, and elevator all restored and renovated to modern standards while retaining their authentic charm.
A concierge shared with another building ensures that the common areas will be well maintained. The apartment can easily be reconfigured to create an entrance opening to an office / library, three large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a utility room, a large central kitchen, and magnificent living and dining rooms overlooking the tree-lined boulevard. A double cellar completes the apartment.
The imposing building lies near the corner of Boulevard Beaumarchais and Rue St. Gilles, close to Place des Vosges the prestigious Archives area of the Marais. The vibrant neighborhood features a large weekly street market, upscale grocery "Maison Plisson", Bobo concept store "Merci" and high-end galleries and restaurants.
In the 3rd and 4th arrondissement, you can find Le Marais, which is one of the most densely packed, hip and bustling quarters in Paris. In recent years, a profusion of trendy businesses, shops and art establishments have begun spreading upwards from the Marais’ original epicenter around the crossstreets of Rue des Francs-Bourgeois and Rue Vieille du Temple, to the upper reaches of the Marais, near Rue de Bretagne and the Carreau du Temple.
A stroll through this cutting‐edge neighborhood, now called the Haut Marais (Upper Marais) will provide visitors with a wonderful sample of the contemporary art world’s most exciting artists. In addition to some of the city’s best galleries, this area is also home to many innovative clothing and design shops. All of this part is located in the 3rd arrondissement.
Wandering these charming streets is a fabulous way to spend an afternoon in Paris.
Begin your tour at the Temple metro station and head south (away from Place de la République) down Rue du Temple, and make a left onto Rue du Petit Thouars. Be sure to pop into the Librairie Ofr, one the trendiest art and design bookshops in town.
Down the street (Rue du Petit Thouars) on your right, you will see the Carreau du Temple, a former covered market that is currently under renovation – unfortunately it’s currently closed for renovations. Right next to the Carreau’s enormous brick and glass structure you’ll notice a lovely little square. In summer, the restaurants lining the square pull their tables into the center, offering Parisians a taste of what vintage, convivial village life must have been like.
Walk past the Carreau du Temple and make a right onto Rue de Picardie and then a left onto Rue de Bretagne. This stretch of Rue de Bretagne has become one of the premier food streets in Paris. Packed with amazing purveyors: cheese shops, butchers, and greengrocers, the street is anchored by the absolutely charming open‐air market: Marché des Enfants des Rouges, an oasis in the center of town, filled with flowers, fruit and restaurants with outdoor seating. It’s a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle.
Continue along Rue de Bretagne and you’ll come across the Rue de Saintonge and the Rue Charlot. If you’re looking for unique, underground designers, a stroll up and down the length of both of these streets is a must! We also recommend a visit down neighbouring Rue de Poitou; the section between rue Charlot and Rue Vieille du Temple is also filled with fabulous finds! Nearby on Rue du Turenne you’ll find Andrea Crews – her boutique spells style “g‐r‐e‐e‐n”. Andrea Crews is akin to high octane American Apparel, reinterpreting second‐hand clothing in designer Maroussia Rebecq’s sustainable dialect.
If you need to fortify yourself with some Mexican snacks or even a post-shopping cocktail, Candelaria is a hole in the wall taqueria and bar on Rue Saintonge. Frequently packed to the rafters, it’s one of the most popular spots in Haut Marais.
Please see below for some of our favorite shops. We encourage you to nip into any boutique or gallery you come across on these streets, each one is out of the ordinary and will allow you to come away with many special treats!
