This apartment is located within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and a short three blocks from the Seine. Whether you like to walk along the Seine, shop at the numerous upscale shops along the rue, try out the multitude of cafes, bistros and restaurants, or spend time strolling among the vendors on the famous open air market located around the corner on rue Cler, this area has it all. It is a true Parisian community and one in which you will feel instantly at ease and comfortable.
The apartment is extremely quiet as it is accessed by going through two courtyards. The only sound you wake to in the morning is the sound of the church bells ringing from Eglise Saint Jean. Guests get the best of both worlds – quiet because of the location at the back of the complex yet located on a fabulous, bustling street that does not close down at night.
This spacious apartment, located in an 1820 building at the back of the property, is open and airy and each and every room has double-paned, sound insulated windows that open onto a courtyard, bathing the rooms with light. Hardwood floors, some containing the original wood, are covered with wonderfully soft and plush area rugs.
Living Room - The large living room is perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing and has ample seating for you and your guests including a couch with down wrapped cushions, oversized Bergere chair, leather club chair that fully reclines, an antique game table with two extra chairs, and two others that can be positioned anywhere in the room where extra seating is required. It has two large double-paned, sound insulated windows with silk lined drapes that open onto a grass courtyard. But the best feature is the intimate, fully functioning fireplace with an antique wood mantel from the south of France that was passed down to the family of the previous owners. The living room is equipped with air-conditioning.
Dining Room – The dining room, located off the main hallway to the left of the entry, has a beautiful glass topped table resting on a stone pedestal base with room to seat eight, including the two extra matching chairs from the living room. A lighted niche, with five glass shelves displaying the champagne flutes and wine glasses that are provided for your use, is the perfect setting for an intimate candle lit dinner for two or to simply enjoy your coffee and croissant in the morning as you gaze out the window facing the inner courtyard. This room adjoins and faces the open plan kitchen separated by a granite table bar.
Kitchen – The galley style kitchen has all new appliances including a Miele refrigerator-freezer, oven, stove top, dishwasher, microwave, clothes washer and dryer, stainless steel sink, coffee/ espresso machine including built in milk steamer for perfect lattes, earth tone granite counter tops which blend perfectly with the soothing taupe walls and creamy white crown molding, surrounded by a backsplash that was completed with hand made tiles from France in shades of eggplant, citron green and raspberry. Serving dishes for eight in a botanical pattern from Villeroy and Boch, wine glasses and champagne flutes, matching place mats, napkins and table linens, a complete set of pots and pans, and every conceivable cooking gadget to make your time in the kitchen relaxing as well as convenient. This kitchen is perfect for entertaining – whether for two or for ten.
Master Bedroom – The master bedroom is oozing with taste and charm and is decorated in a cool soothing pallet of silver blue and chocolate brown. The antique French bed is the centerpiece of the room. The brand new mattress set is top of the line and is covered in a feather topped mattress cover. Color coordinated bedding from Restoration Hardware includes Egyptian cotton sheets in 600 thread count, matching down blanket and duvet cover. Two large windows are covered in fully lined silk draperies with custom hardware. The bed faces the country French 19th century armoire and contains ample storage for hanging clothes as well as shelves for folded items. The color TV is enclosed inside the armoire to lend a clean, uncluttered look to the room. An oversized original oil painting hangs on the wall and compliments the overall decorating scheme.
Master Bathroom – The master bathroom is adjacent to the master bedroom. Walls are painted a complimentary but lighter shade of silver blue, the black slate floor and creamy white tiles blend beautifully to complete the sophisticated look. You have the choice of sinking into the deep tub with a soft waterproof pillow to cradle your head, all encased in a frameless glass enclosure or using the wall mounted shower. And the European towel warmer heats your towels to the perfect temperature. Plush terry spa robes are provided for your use as well as hair dryer, flat iron and electric curlers. And, bien sur, scented bubble bath products to add that perfect touch to your bathing experience.
Second Bedroom – The second bedroom is coordinated around the deep taupe walls and creamy crown moulding. Sophisticated French bedding for the queen bed in a blue toile fabric by Yves Delorme with feather down comforter and pillows will surround your body with true comfort. The room is bathed in warm light shining through the window that overlooks the garden courtyard. The clothing valet and dresser both provide ample room to help organize and store your clothing.
Study – The office study is located off the second bedroom. This oversized room contains a beautiful, custom built queen-sized Murphy bed as well as a double leather club sofa that reclines to a full horizontal position. There is also a desk/dresser combination that provides additional room for folding clothing storage and is located in a well lighted area to so that if necessary provides an inviting atmosphere to catch up on any activities that require a desk.
Second Bathroom – The second bathroom is a full bathroom with a small corner sink and a complete tile enclosed shower with an entire wall in mirrors. The white tile is accented with leopard towels and accessories and highlighted with touches of citron green. The European towel warmer is perfect for warming your towels and there is ample storage area for toiletries. Spa robes, hair dryer, curlers and toiletries are provided for your personal use.
