Paris Arrondissement 11 apartment description

Pamper yourself in this spacious (771 sq ft /67 sq m), well-appointed, one bedroom apartment!

It is located in a beautifully-preserved 19th century building in the historic Bastille neighborhood, close to the Marais, the Seine and the Canal St. Martin, in the up-and-coming 11th arrondissement.

THE APARTMENT
Our apartment is located on the second floor (third floor American). The kitchen is to the left at the end of the short hallway. It is fully equipped with carefully chosen appliances and cooking utensils, and laid out with generous counter space. Just off the kitchen, the spacious, marble-walled bathroom reveals a level of luxury truly unique in a Paris apartment. There is a large shower as well a beautifully-large bathtub, just the thing for soaking those tired limbs after a vigorous day of sight-seeing. A mirrored vanity with ample counter and storage space is spacious enough for more than one person to get ready in the morning. Also, you will also find tucked away here a top-of-the-line, full-sized Miele washer and dryer.

Next to the kitchen, the large dining room is just the place to enjoy what you brought home from the Richard Lenoir market, with elegant seating for four under an antique crystal chandelier. Original 19th century moldings are throughout the apartment, but note them particularly here above the chandelier. This room also features inlaid oak flooring, set in a herringbone pattern (point d' Hongrie in French).

Enjoy cozy seating in the salon or living room, which includes a red-wine colored velvet sofa facing its own marble fireplace and a comfy black leather club chair--above you will be another crystal chandelier. The comfortable sofa will fold out to provide a large bed with adequate space for two adults. You also have the ability to close off the living room and dining room if are using the sofabed, thus providing privacy and quiet for all guests.

Relax and watch mostly French TV (with some English channels) on a LCD television. Bring your laptop and enjoy free wifi. If you need to use the telephone, calls are free to the US, UK, continental Europe and Asia. This salon also features a newly added set of closets and desk, where a printer has been set-up for printing your boarding passes or Parisian itineraries.

The bedroom at the end of the hallway to the right features a marble fireplace as well as antique 19th century end tables that flank a custom, hand-made Treca mattress. The thick-paned, double-windows keep out street noise and the outside shutters can be closed if you need a totally dark and silent room for sleeping.

Finally, even what is usually the most ignored room in any Paris apartment has been given the luxury treatment: the W.C. is in marble, floor to ceiling.

LOCATION AND NEIGHBORHOOD
Our apartment is located in the historic Bastille neighborhood, just enough off the beaten tourist track to provide a calm respite, but still close enough to all those things that make this city indelibly Paris. Literally a block away is the incredible Richard Lenoir food market that no less an authority than David Lebovitz has pronounced one of the best in the city (don’t miss the rotisserie chickens and the incredible fresh fish stations). On the same esplanade where the market comes alive on Thursdays and Sundays can be found your local metro stop--the Breguet-Sabin station, a five-minute walk away.

If you’ve slept in on market day and/or just need a few comestibles to tide you over, there is a new Carrefour City grocery store, conveniently situated literally around the corner and there are two other larger grocery stories a few blocks away.

And if you don’t want to shop for groceries and would prefer a croissant, chausson de pomme or pain au chocolat to go with your morning coffee? Two blocks away is the Boulangerie Sedaine which our sweet tooth can personally vouch for, and in Boulangerie Mardon is even closer. Last year, an organic grocery story and restaurant opened up just down from our street.



But food and drink are certainly not the only attraction. Two blocks up is the famous Rue de la Roquette, which is a lively stroll past shops of every kind in the daytime and which features a vibrant, club/restaurant scene at night. Catch an opera or ballet at the the Bastille opera house, just ten minutes down Richard Lenoir boulevard. And for more leisurely strolls, go west to the Place des Vosges and Marais, or north to the Canal St. Martin. Or head south to the Seine and the Ile Saint Louis. All these Paris landmarks are reachable within an easy ten to twenty minutes, with the Pere Lachaise cemetery and the famous Aligre market just a bit further away on foot. Of course, with the Breguet-Sabin metro station two blocks away and the Bastille metro station ten minutes away, you have a direct connection to the rest of Paris.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Some years ago, when our girls were younger, we spent a memorable year in France... in Aix-en-Provence. The girls became fluent in French. We made life-long friends. It was hard to leave. Finding this apartment in Paris was a way not to have to leave France for good. Alan and Cathy
