Paris Arrondissement 6 apartment description

This is my second home. It is more a home than a rental. I take great pride in decorating it with warmth and luxury.

I chose this apartment for its location. It is only steps to the Luxembourg Gardens entrance where there are pony rides, a super children's playground, a world famous puppet theater, tennis and basketball courts, a jogging track, 'petanque' players, chess matches , a huge fountain and a carousel. It feels like home, not a rental, because it is my home when I'm in Paris.

If you have young kids this location next to the Gardens is a must. They will discover the Gardens just as my kids did -- feeding the ducks and fish in the fountain with a fresh 'baguette', sailing a boat, riding the carousel and spearing iron rings, swinging on the ropes in the playground, watching a world-renown puppet show and riding the ponies.

We are a block from Gertrude Stein's former apartment on 27 rue de Fleurus. Picture Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Hemingway and other artists just around the corner having an aperitif before they stroll to the Montparnasse brasseries. You can't beat the location.

This two bedroom, two bath, two balcony, spacious luxury apartment is in Paris' most desirable quarter known for its peaceful central location. You will enjoy quiet full night's sleep in the cozy rear of the building. There is no noise coming from our narrow one-way street. Two coded security doors to the apartment and a full-time concierge insure safety. A brief walk takes you to the Luxembourg Gardens entrance, world-reknown gourmet restaurants (Coupole, Dome, Lutetia, Helene Darroze), Latin Quarter cafés, Montparnasse, St. Sulplice Church, the Odeon theater, the Raspail open air market, gourmet food and high fashion shopping at Bon Marche, the Alliance Francaise, Poilaine (best bakery in Paris), theaters, the Musee D'Orsay, Eiffel Tower, Boulevard St. Germain, movies and other monuments. Our scenic street set the stage for a recent French 1920's period movie titled 'Les Faux Monnayeurs'.

Joe, our English speaking local manager, meets and greets visitors with a smile, helps orient you and can coordinate various services including baby sitting, cleaning and food delivery.

We are a few blocks from two police stations. The neighborhood is extremely safe because we are near the French Senate where security is ever present.

Everything you need from green grocers, pharmacies, bakeries, gelato and pastry shops, cafes, tabacs, hairdressers, a late night grocery store, movies and theater are all within a few minutes walk.

Three metro stops, five bus lines and a taxi station are close to the apartment. The location affords easy access to the entire city and its monuments.

The 'beaux-arts' building was built in 1900 with high ceilings and elaborate wall/ceiling moldings. The fifth floor apartment with an ELEVATOR is a spacious 1075 square feet and has two balconies.

Why do I say 'luxury'? The decorator designed apartment is furnished with expensive antique furniture, oriental carpets, fine bone China, original oil paintings and Japanese woodblock prints. An artist painted a mural in the WC. In 2010-11 I completely REMODELED TWO BATHROOMS and installed a JAPANESE WASHING TOILET. The drapes are custom-made heavy velvet. In the European tradition, one bedroom's walls are covered with blue velvet.

The apartment is well-appointed with all modern conveniences. The kitchen is new and features the highest quality built-in appliances by Miele and Bosch and a NESPRESSO COFFEE MACHINE. We have top-of-the-line cooking utensils, pots, pans, 500 thread count and Frette sheets, bath sheets, luxurious bathrobes from Bloomingdales, silver candlesticks, 19th century gilded mirrors, an antique mantle clock, board games and lots of reading material for rainy days. Everything is NEW except the antique furniture. The apartment is wired with WiFi and two LAPTOPS (Mac and PC) connected to a wireless PRINTER, two large FLAT PANEL TV's, a BOSE sound system and FREE WORLDWIDE PHONE SERVICE (except Africa and South America), an IPHONE DOCK to the stereo and a cell phone. There are also two AIR CONDITIONING units.

We also provide a GPS navigator to help you around the city and countryside should you travel. You do not need to bring guidebooks, hairdryers, converters, computers , an iron or umbrellas. Mac or PC ? We have both. A VIDEO DESCRIPTION IS ON YOU TUBE '5 minutes walk from Paris apartment'

You will enjoy your stay. We want you to return.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I first fell in love with Paris when I attended the American University in Paris. Now I am on the board of trustees of AUP and am fortunate to have my own apartment in the 6th. I have had two careers, first as a US diplomat, now as a private banker. I plan soon to work remotely from my apartment. Eventually I intend to retire in Paris and this will be my second home.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 6:
Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. My grandparents spent many months in at a hotel two blocks from this apartment and I visited them there. Now this is my second home. The proximity to Luxembourg Gardens was a dream of mine-- to leave my apartment and play tennis in the middle of a park in the center of Paris!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Access to Luxembourg Gardens, jogging in the park, free tennis courts, organic open air market, central location, restaurants, 'Bon Marche' best shopping, Alliance Francaise, Gertrude Stein's former neighborhood.
