Paris Arrondissement 4 apartment description

Located in the heart of the Ile-Saint-Louis, the front entrance to this early 17th-century building leads into a small and quiet courtyard. You can choose between taking the elegant wood staircase or the elevator to access this second floor (third floor US) apartment. Upon entering, your first impression will be one of light and warmth. The luminosity is due to the very high ceilings and tall windows. The pale yellow color of the walls in the main living areas makes it cheerful and warm all year round.

The separate living and dining room is located on the front of the building, from where floor-to-ceiling windows offer you views of the shops below. It is a perfect spot for discreet people watching. Inside the living room, one is reminded of the age and dignity of the building thanks to the high ceiling, the exposed wooden beams, the stone wall, and hardwood floors. The antique furnishings highlight the sensation of 'old world charm,' but a combination of small-scale contemporary artwork and traditional French 'tableaux' speak strongly of the style and creativity of the French today.

The living and dining areas are cleverly defined by the placement of the furniture. All has been designed to create a very cozy atmosphere. The dining area consists of a black-washed wooden table (seats four) and an impressive Spanish renaissance style buffet. The kitchen is immediately accessible just a few steps away. Towards the front of the apartment, a 19th-century black marble fireplace and mirror are the focal point of the living area. The sofa and armchairs are placed in a manner for sharing conversation and drinks, for enjoying a quiet read in the sunshine, or to watch your favorite international news or movies on the flat panel TV. A small antique writing table visually separates the two areas while providing you with a place to consult your emails and write post cards via an Ethernet or WiFi connection. The salon is lit by a series of contemporary style spot lights that are controlled by dimmer.

The kitchen has been carefully designed to add to the beauty of the apartment as well. The built-in appliances (washer/dryer and refrigerator) have been hidden behind the facades of the hand painted, antiqued cabinetry. The ceramic stove top and the microwave/convection oven are black to blend with the absolute black granite of the counters and backsplash. The brushed nickel faucet and black under mounted sink are lit by small spot lights that are controlled by a dimmer switch. Coffee maker, toaster, glassware, cutlery, utensils, dishes, and crockery are provided.

The petite bedroom located in the back of the apartment is very bright thanks to two tall windows. The grey-green color of the walls is visually cool and conducive to relaxation. The windows are dressed in pale yellow floor-to-ceiling curtains that diffuse a soft golden light. Should you wish to 'sleep in' one morning, you can lower the electric blinds and create total darkness for as long as you like. A very high quality queen-sized bed and night stands are there for your comfort. A large closet with inset mirrors on the doors provides ample space for stowing luggage and arranging your personal affairs. Located in the back of the apartment, you will find that this bedroom is a haven of peace and quiet.

In the bathroom you will find a large shower stall, wash basin, medicine cabinet, and toilet. This bathroom has been created to complete your experience of comfort and luxury. The floor and large shower stall are tiled in beige tumbled marble. An antique ceramic frieze adds a further touch of color and interest to the room. The towel rack will heat the bathroom and warm your towels at the same time. Here too the lights are controlled by dimmer switch.

This comfortable, well-appointed, one-bedroom, luxury apartment is characteristic of life on Ile-Saint-Louis. It offers charm, light, warmth, and quietude. Your senses will be delighted to be on vacation here.

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Nothing unusual, American in Paris.

                  Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
                  Ile Saint Louis feels like a private retreat, protected by the Seine, in the center of Paris. Within a few minutes walking distance to every major metro line, it could not be easier to visit the sites and neighborhoods, or access airports and major train stations. When worked full time in Paris, it was so convenient to have everything I needed and to be able to meander into Le Marais or St. Germain on a whim to meet friends or just pass the time. I am very fortunate to have a home in Paris.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Friends visiting always comment that my apartment feels like a “petit Versailles”, and when they learn of the actual square footage/meters, are truly complimentary of the great layout and feeling of generous space. The high ceiling with exposed original beams, as well as the exposed stone wall, make the living area feel exactly as you would hope in a classic 17th century building. Yet, the latest kitchen and bathroom design honor today’s required living conveniences. Having the bedroom on the back courtyard side with blackout blinds make sleeping a truly peaceful experience. Standing at the front living room double-paned windows, three floors above a mostly pedestrian street with charming shops, is a delightful way to watch the world go by. And if you decide to leave the apartment, you can walk down a wide, comfortable staircase with original wood carved banisters, or take the elevator, which is a rare find in a 17th century apartment building.
