Paris Arrondissement 15 apartment description

Spacious by Parisian standards, this 70 m2 (800+ sq feet) apartment has been in my family four generations. Remodeled in 2005, Bis2 maintains it's charm with beautiful moldings on the ceiling, the original, honey colored wooden floors, clay 'tomettes' on the eat-in kitchen floor, and road maps from our family holidays during the 60's wallpapering the separate WC.

Situated in a familial yet very lively neighborhood filled with cafes, parks, grocers, wine merchants and award winning bakeries - you can sit at an outdoor table facing the park and watch 'le tout Paris' go by. A newly opened Monop right next door insures that no want that will go unmet.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1957

                      About the owner: My mother was Parisian my father American, so I've lived my life between Paris and Carmel, Ca. My daughter and I currently live in Paris. She attends (will soon be graduating from) a bilingual French high school which is just 2 blocks away. I am passionate about the year round outdoor markets (be they produce or antiques) and would be happy to share my experiences with you.

                      Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 15:
                      I love this neighborhood (known as the Village of the 15th) because of it's many parks, little shops cafes and quaint buildings. I could have chosen to move anywhere in Paris, but there is something about the down to earth feel of the quartier, not so far from the madding crowd, that is just so captivating. This charming apartment has been in the family since the early 1900's... it has been remodeled twice and is furnished with family antiques. When you stay here, you are in a home, not just any rental.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      It's an easy walk from bis to the Eiffel Tower, the Champs de Mars or the original Statue of Liberty at the Seine. A quick stroll to the Pasteur Institute and UNESCO, this apartment is wonderfully located to enjoy the best of both worlds; the quick paced Parisian city life and a quieter, gentler village life where you can easily become a local. Served by 2 metro lines (the 8 & 10) you can be whisked across the city in no time and with ease.
