Why Michael chose 4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais
I fell in love with this property because of the incredible location in the heart of the city on a beautifully picturesque street, combined with the historic charm of the surrounding Marais neighborhood (with its famous food and fashion boutiques). Add to that the fact that there is an elevator (only 1 in 200 buildings in this historic area have elevators) and I could not resist purchasing it.
What makes this apartment unique
Location. Surrounded by museums, incredible food, fashion boutiques, and quintessential old-world charm. Beautiful quiet building with the rarity of having an elevator.
