Paris Arrondissement 3 apartment description

Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum (reopening Summer 2013), galleries, restaurants and shops. This newly renovated house has a bedroom with office space upstairs, a bathroom with a large shower, an open kitchen, a dining area and a living space with a convertible sofa that has a very comfortable mattress. It sits tucked away in the quiet second courtyard behind a 17th century hôtel particulier and has its own garden space with outdoor furniture. You’ll love the light streaming in through the glass roof and the huge sliding glass doors that look out onto your private cobblestone outdoor space.

You enter the apartment by going through the large cobblestone courtyard of the landmark Hôtel de Cornuel, through the building into the calm second courtyard and then through a hallway that leads to the ground floor duplex loft.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, multi-function oven, induction cooktop, refrigerator with freezer and all of the cooking equipment you’ll need. There’s also an all in one washer/dryer.

The living room has a comfortable convertible sofa with a real thick mattress for two that you’ll definitely get your sleep on if there are four of you. There’s a flat screen TV and of course free WiFi and telephone. Feel free to browse the books in the huge bookcase next to the stairs. The furniture has been carefully chosen and boasts some design classics such as the colorful Eames chairs in the dining area or the Noguchi prism table next to the sofa.

The all white bathroom has a 90cmx90cm shower, a washbasin, a toilet and plenty of storage.

The bedroom is upstairs and has a Queen size bed (160cm x 200cm), a desk and storage for your clothes and luggage. There’s also a plush, leather Eames lounge chair with foot rest to ease your tired feet from all of the walking. A curtain can be pulled to close off the sleeping area if you need to sleep in the dark. You can also watch TV on a flat screen at the foot of the bed.

The lushly planted outdoor space is the icing on the cake. It’s private and makes for a lovely view. It’s equipped with a table and chairs as well as lighting that makes outdoor dining a pleasure.

Clean sheets and towels are provided.
The weekly cleaning fee is 70 Euros. Extra cleaning services are available.
A baby bed is available upon request.

Notre loft en duplex incroyablement charmant est situé dans la meilleure partie du quartier branché du Marais à Paris à quelques pas du marché des Enfants Rouges, du Centre Pompidou, du Musée Picasso (réouverture Eté 2013), de galeries, restaurants et magasins. Cette maison entièrement rénovée à neuf a une chambre avec un espace bureau à l’étage, une salle de bains avec une grande douche, une cuisine ouverte, un coin repas et un séjour avec un canapé lit muni d’un matelas très confortable. Il est situé dans une deuxième cour tranquille derrière un hôtel particulier du 17ème siècle et jouit d’un espace extérieur privé meublé. Vous aimerez toute la lumière qui inonde l’espace depuis le toit en verre et les immenses portes coulissantes qui s’ouvrent sur le jardin privé pavé dehors.

On entre dans l’appartement par la cour pavée de l’Hôtel Cornuel, bâtiment classé au registre des monuments historiques. On passe à travers ce bâtiment pour entrer dans une seconde cour, puis par un couloir qui mène vers le loft en duplex au rez de chaussée.
La cuisine est entièrement équipée avec un lave vaisselle, un four multi-fonctions, une plaque de cuisson à induction, un réfrigérateur avec congélateur et toutes les accessoires pour cuisiner. Il y a aussi un lave-linge séchant.

Le séjour est équipé d’un canapé convertible confortable avec un vrai matelas épais pour deux sur lequel vous dormirez bien si vous êtes quatre à occuper l’appartement. Il y a un écran plat et bien sûr une connexion Wi-Fi gratuite et un téléphone. Vous pouvez parcourir les livres dans les grandes étagères à côté de l’escalier. Les meubles ont été choisis avec soin parmi lesquels se trouvent quelques classiques du design comme les chaises Eames de toutes les couleurs dans le coin repas ou la table prismatique de Noguchi à côté du canapé.

La salle de bains toute blanche a une douche qui fait 90cm x 90cm, un lavabo, une toilette et beaucoup de rangements.

La chambre en haut a un lit double de 160cm x 200cm, un bureau et des rangements pour vos vêtements et bagages. Il y a aussi un fauteuil Eames en cuir avec son repose-pieds pour vous reposer après une longue journée de marche. Un rideau peu être tiré devant l’espace du lit si besoin pour faire le noir. Vous pouvez aussi regarder la télé sur un écran plat au pied du lit.

L’espace extérieur luxuriant est la cerise sur le gâteau. Il est privé et donne une jolie vue. Il est équipé d’une table et de chaises ainsi que d’un éclairage qui rend les repas pris à l’extérieur fort agréables.

Les draps et serviettes de bains propres sont fournis.
Les frais de ménage hebdomadaires sont de 70 Euros. Il est possible de demander des heures de ménage supplémentaires.
Un lit bébé est disponible sur demande.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Our incredibly charming duplex loft is ideally located in the best part of the trendy Marais district in Paris, just steps away from the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the Centre Pompidou, the Picasso Museum (reopening Summer 2013), galleries, restaurants and shops. You can walk to the river Seine and the Place des Vosges. We're also in the heart of the Paris fashion week area where several times a year the art galleries are transformed into fashion showrooms. The nearest metro stations at about equal distance are St Sébastien Froissart (line 8) and Rambuteau (line 11). It's a 10 minute walk to République (lines 3, 5, 8, 9 and 11) and to Hôtel de Ville (lines 1 and 11). The 29 bus is a block away and the 96 (that takes you directly to the Luxemburg garden and to Odéon is a 7 minute walk away.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: My husband and I are both architects living between New York and Paris. I grew up in Germany, England, the US and moved to France to study architecture. I also have a Masters of Architecture from Columbia University in New York. We have two children who are currently enrolled at the International School of Brooklyn.

                  Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 3:
                  We bought our property in the year 2000 and transformed it into an architecture studio with a large duplex apartment for ourselves above. With our move to New York and our trans-atlantic traveling, we decided to transform the rear part of the office into an independent apartment.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  When we first visited our place, we immediately fell in love with it. It's tucked away in a second courtyard where we wake up to hear birds singing. It has a country feel to it although it's in the middle of the city. The building you have to go through to enter the second courtyard is a landmark 'hôtel particulier' and both courtyards still have the original large cobblestones. There's a huge tree in the private courtyard that the rental looks out onto. It's very green, quiet and bucolic, which gives us an exceptional quality of life, being also in the heart of Paris. It's a modern, contemporary space in the heart of one of the oldest landmark areas of Paris.
