Paris Arrondissement 2 apartment description

This recently decorated 85 sq. meter (915 sq. foot) luxurious two-bedroom apartment, is ideally situated in between the original Opera house (Garnier) and the Palais Royal gardens. From here, you can easily explore central Paris; the Louvre, Opera, Place de la Madeleine, Place de la Concorde, the Champs-Elysees, as well as the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores are all within convenient walking distance. There are also many famous restaurants in the area, such as Drouant, frequented by artists such as Renoir, Rodin and Pisarro, as well as hosting the famous Goncourt literary prize and the Vefour, frequented by the likes of Napoleon and Josephine, Victor Hugo, Sacha Guitry, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and Maria Callas, to name a few...

The apartment is situated on the second floor of an early 19th century building. There is an elevator which has just been installed and the hallway and staircase were recently renovated. It has original waxed-oak parquet floors, large windows, high ceilings and beautiful plaster mouldings throughout and is equipped with central heating with stripped and restored turn-of-the century radiators.

It has been entirely renovated and decorated by our team to the highest standards, with luxury furnishings and fittings, in a modern interpretation of the directoire/Consulate style (late 18th-early 19th century) to fit with the period that the building was built.

The front door of the apartment opens to an entrance hall which is partially separated from the living room by two Corinthian columns. The living room is furnished with a beautifully-restored Directoire daybed/sofa which can comfortably sleep a fifth guest, a glass coffee table, two Louis XVI-styled, second empire chairs and sofa, side tables, Original artwork, a crystal chandelier and stylish lamps. There is a small library with a sound system and a flat-screen television with cable connection and home cinema sound system from Bose. It also has a decorative red marble fireplace and double wooden doors, which open to the front bedroom.

The front bedroom, with its grey marble, decorative fireplace, has a large queen-sized bed, a Louis XVI chest of drawers, a small side table and two directoire armchairs. The walls are in two shades of grey with panels of hand-painted wallpaper from Zuber with an early 19th century Roman scene in grisaille. Both bedrooms have their own en-suite marble bathrooms; the front bedrooms bathroom is fitted with white arabescato marble and the large shower and sink are fitted with fittings designed by Arne Jacobsen for Vola. The front bathroom has no toilet, but there is an extra one next to the dining room.

The second bedroom can be communicated by a small, shared dressing room/closet, or by a separate entrance to the left of the main entrance hall. It has two single beds, that can be joined or separated as needs be. It is furnished with a large original 19th Century oil painting, a Louis XVI chest of drawers and its en-suite bathroom is furbished with grey/black marble and white marble arabescato floors. It has a full bath with headrest and shower fitting. It is also equipped with a suspended toilet and marble sink.

To the left of the main entrance hall is the dining room, from which you have a wonderful perspective view over the whole living area of the apartment. It is furbished with black and white decorative floor-tiling, an empire chandelier, a collection of original 18th century engravings of maps, a beautiful Mahogony Empire table and six Biedermeyer chairs. There is also a separate adjoining toilet.

The dining room is connected to the kitchen with its black-laquered fitted cabinets and red granite work-surface, equipped with a four-hubbed gas cooker, an electric oven, a microwave, a large refrigerator with separate freezer, a dishwashing machine, a clothes-washing/dryer machine combo, coffee/espresso machine, toaster, kettle and equipment to make a good meal.

All the electrical fittings are in polished brass from the famous French company Meljac, with dimmer switches to create a soft and romantic mood.

The apartment is equipped with unlimited Wi-Fi internet access, free telephone calls to landlines in over two hundred countries throughout the world and cabled television with English speaking channels.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: Régis Maurin and myself (Jean-Paul Morrel-Armstrong, although most people call me John Armstrong) set up a business renting out 'Special Apartments' in Paris, which we manage for investors in Paris. We have been doing this for the last seven years, buying apartments for investors and then renovating them, decorating them and renting them out. Régis worked in the hotel industry for many years and I have worked in publicity and fashion. I am presently working on a internet guide of Paris for English speakers.

                  Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 2:
                  Last year we decided to buy our own apartment for vacation rental, in order to offer our guests a unique Parisian experience in a luxurious atmosphere in the very heart of the city center, near to all the most important touristic and shopping attractions. We also really enjoyed renovating and decorating this apartment which previously housed offices.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Location: here you are perfectly situated to visit all the major attractions of the city of lights. Luxury: we have made an effort to equip the apartment with the highest quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings. There is beautiful original artwork and antique objects but the atmosphere is still relaxed and comfortable. Modernity: The kitchen and bathroom is equipped with state-of-the-art equipments and you are connected to the world with hi-speed internet, unlimited telephone to many countries and cable television with a Bose home cinema system.
