Paris Arrondissement 1 house description

This is a light and spacious one bedroom luxury apartment in the first arrondissement, the very center of Paris. Located on the 5th floor of a 1860 Haussmann building on a quiet, tree-lined avenue only steps from the banks of the Seine and minutes from Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Marais District or the Latin Quarter. The Chatelet metro station is a block away.
The Victoria apartment is very centrally located; almost in the exact geographic center of Paris. It is on a small side street one block from the Chatelet plaza with its beautiful fountain. The apartment is also one block from the quay along the Seine and adjacent to the transportation apex of the metro and bus network for Paris. There are many busses and the metro is just at the end of the block. From this location you can literally walk to the following destinations: - Ile de la Cite (the original site of Paris) and Place Dauphine - Notre Dame Cathedral and La Chapelle - The Louvre - The historic 17 Century Maris district and the Pompidou center - The Ile Saint Louis - The Place Saint Michel on the Left bank and the Latin Quarter and the Sorbonne - The Saint Germain des Pres district
The main metro line at Chatelet is line 1 and it runs directly to the Champs Elysees, Arch de Triumph, the Place de la Concorde, and the les Tuileries in one direction and the Place de la Bastille and the eastern side of the Marais district in the other direction. There is also a taxi stand just at the end of the block at the fountain/plaza.
Originally a typical Beaux Arts style apartment, the recent renovation and contemporary furnishings have added a modern twist to the elegant decor. Through two doors equipped with electronic card readers, you enter into the renovated historic hallway with access to the elevator; a short set of steps leads from the elevator to the apartment.
The large and impressive living room has high ceilings and two tall double-glazed windows (with black-out curtains) giving attractive wide views of the sky and street below. The classic feel of the original marble fireplace and over-mantle mirror is contrasted with the modern - and very comfortable - queen size sofa bed.
The bedroom is pleasant and light, also with two tall windows and black-out curtains. It has its own original polished marble fireplace and a very generous amount of built in wardrobe space. There is a separate flat screen television. The bed is queen size with a deep but firm mattress. Bed linens and towels are of the finest quality and there is an iPod player on the mantleplace.
The dining room features large windows as well and is contiguous with the kitchen but can be completely separated by an ingenious system of 'pocket doors' which slide away completely when not needed. The elegant Gustavian dining room table will seat four.
In the Swedish style kitchen there is a catalytic oven, vitroceramic stove with four hot plates, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a very effective exhaust hood. All cooking utensils and other small appliances are top quality.
The large bathroom has a full size shower, basin, designer toilet and bidet, as well as a mirrored cabinet with power outlet. (A hairdryer and bathroom radio are provided.) A washer and separate dryer are located in a built-in cupboard (instructions are in English).
The apartment is equipped with fax and answering machine and two Ethernet DSL internet connection outlets and Wi-Fi.
Two LCD televisions plus cable decoders with 150 channels including CNN and BBC, a DVD player and a separate CD and radio sound systems complete the entertainment lineup.
In the hall closet, as well as space for baggage storage, there is a cyclonic HEPA vacuum cleaner, steam iron and ironing board plus a personal safe. The apartment has smoke alarms and a fire extinguisher.
SPECIAL NOTE: The elevator access is to alternate floors. There are ten steps to walk up from the elevator landing to the apartment if you press #4 or you can walk down if you press #6.
