This 70 m2 (about 750 ft2) apartment is delightfully light and airy. Newly renovated, it has kept to the original style of the buildings and apartments nearby. Therefore, it has all the comforts of a new apartment, but with the elegance and distinction of the 19th century.

The apartment is located on a very quiet tree-lined and cobble stoned street. To enter the building there is a security gate and then a second secured door into the building, followed by a secured elevator.

On the top 5th and 6th European floor (6th and 7th US), one enters this magnificent duplex apartment through a pleasant mirrored hallway leading in towards the kitchen at the far side, then opening to the left into a sunny living room. It has been decorated tastefully with Louis XVI furniture, a Louis XV game table, 5 armchairs with top of the line Louisianne upholstery by Pierre Frey, and a comfortable couch. There is also a desk and chair in similar antique style. You have a charming view from the windows - to the rooftops on one side, and the quiet tree-lined street on the other. To the left of the living room there is a dining room with a long table and seating up to 6, as well as a long buffet table against the mirror lined wall. You’ll find your choice of lovely dinnerware for hosting guests in this formal and intimate dining room. On the other side of the entry hall you’ll find a small WC with sink, providing easy access for all.

The kitchen is well equipped with all the modern appliances you will need, including a dishwasher, stove top and oven, toaster, large refrigerator/freezer, and microwave. The clothes washer/dryer is also located in the kitchen.

Located on the top floor with access by an easy wooden staircase decorated on one wall by a lovely tapestry, you come to a spacious bedroom with light streaming in from the oval windows overlooking the Paris rooftops. There is a queen bed surrounded on each side by turquoise Pompadour bedside tables. You will also have the use of a desk and chair, a television, a bureau with 3 drawers, 2 mirrors, and ample closet space. All the windows are double paned providing absolute calm.

The bathroom is located just around the corner, all in marble, with a sink, WC, bathtub and shower which can be either hand-held or attached to the wall according to your preference. There is also a towel warmer, and added natural light from the skylight above. In the hallway, you have a full mirror with natural lighting thanks to a 2nd skylight - perfect if you need to get ready for a day out.

The apartment has been decorated with great care and with valuable furniture and objects. The street below is extremely calm; practically pedestrian. Nearby you have one of the most reputable streets for food shopping, la rue des Belles Feuilles, where you will find the best cheese shops, butchers, wine shops, and bakeries, excellent restaurants and cafés, as well as a Monoprix grocery store. Apparently, this is where actor Gerard Depardieu chooses to do his shopping! Around the corner, you’ll find Avenue Victor Hugo, an elegant street lined with "de luxe" clothes stores, and leading you to Place Victor Hugo, a favorite for its fountain and surrounding cafés. You are only 1 metro stop away from the Arc de Triomphe!

The owner requests no guests under the age of 21 yrs.

This apartment requires a “Meet and Greet” - guests will be met at the apartment and given keys at that time.
