Paris Arrondissement 7 apartment description

Comfortable high-end design apartment in the heart of Paris, walking distance to main monuments, museums and the Seine, at the chic and international 7th arrondissement.

Building and location:
At the second floor (first floor European, second floor American) of a wonderful French building built in 1901, the apartment overlooks Boulevard Saint Germain, right at Assemblée Nationale metro stop.
The classic building has a secure entry (with a code), concierge and elevator.

This large, 70 square meters (778 square feet) apartment is located in the heart of the mythic Rive Gauche (left bank), a stonethrow from the Seine and a 10 minute walk from the right bank and the Place de la Concorde, 300m from the Musée d'Orsay, and 600m from the Orangerie.

The apartment accommodates comfortably a family of four to five people: two sleeping areas are conceived, each one having its own bathroom. It has two fully equipped bathrooms, a laundry room with washer & dryer and a high-tech living kitchen.

The Living room:
Contemporary art and design lovers will appreciate Achille Castiglioni’s Parentesi lamps, Marcel Wanders’ surrealistic chandelier, Thomas Heatherwick’s Spun chair, and some interesting artpieces of notable Latin American contemporary artists.
A very confortable Paola Navone’s Ghost queen bed sofa, a designer’s prototype coffee table of the late 1960s, a minimalist desk and Dennis Santachiara’s chromed stool complete the living room. The home entertainment system is assured by a Teac hi-fi audio with Bose speaker system, Sony blue-ray/DVD deck and a Samsung flat TV. There is a safe as well.

The living kitchen:
The large and fully equipped Italian kitchen from Dada Cucine includes a four-burner induction ceramic stove, oven, microwave, Nespresso coffee maker, dishwasher, a complete supply of cookware, French white porcelain dishes, contemporary cutlery and glassware.
A Le Corbusier table, six Mario Bellini’s leather chairs and the mythic Toio lamp by Achille Castiglioni complete the dining room for unforgettable dinners overlooking Boulevard Saint Germain.
The living space in the kitchen/dining room is extremely versatile, converting itself in a meeting room/office when the kitchen is closed.

The bedroom and en-suite bathroom:
The quiet bedroom at the back of the apartment has a comfortable queen-sized bed (160 cm = 63 in), iconic Berenice lightings on industrial night tables, IPod docking station, a wooden library, and a spacious closet with mirror. An en-suite bathroom with wooden floors and Italian anthracite tiles features a very large and comfortable shower (55 x 47 in). It also has a 'bidet'.

The second bathroom and the laundry room:
The second bathroom has anthracite grey Italian tiles, Fantini faucets and shower and a hand-made red ceramic sink.

To provide optical depth, the elegant corridor has been painted in a Parisian anthracite shade of grey, matching the color of the wooden floors of the apartment. The laundry room at the end of the corridor is equipped with washer and dryer, a small sink and a storage.

The independent heating of the apartment is guaranteed by Italian designed hot water flat radiators.

Amenities:
The apartment has cable TV with several English-language channels, free high speed wireless Internet access and free telephone calls to local landlines and to more than 70 landline international destinations (list of countries will be provided on arrival). Free calls to US landlines and cell phones. Air conditioning.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      The apartment is conveniently located in the heart of the mythic Rive Gauche (Left Bank), overlooking Boulevard Saint Germain in its most residential area, the Assemblée Nationale.

                      A stonethrow from the Seine, 300 meters from the Musée d'Orsay, 600 meters from the Orangerie and the Tuileries gardens facing the Louvre, ten minute walk to the right bank and the Place de la Concorde, this apartment will be the gateway to main attractions during your stay in Paris.

                      It is surrounded by great coffee shops, typical brasseries, wonderful bakeries and some of the most renowned Michelin starred restaurants like Joël Robuchon's L'Atelier, Alain Passard's L'Arpège or Hélène Darroze.

                      Saint Germain-de-Près and its famous cafés and brasseries such as Les Deux Magots, Café de Flore, Lipp Brasserie, La Société and Ralph's are less than a ten minute walk.

                      Transportation is really easy. The Assemblée Nationale metro stop is across the road and the bus stop with buses to all the major attractions is right in front of the apartment building. A taxi stand is 150 meters away, close to the Musee D’Orsay. The airport shuttle 'Les Cars' to main airports stops at Les Invalides, ten minute walk from the apartment.

                      This apartment is located in front of a traditional Parisian news stand that sells international press, if you feel like having your first 'café crème' with a croissant and a newspaper!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We decided to buy this wonderful 'pied-à-terre' when we discovered this lovely spot of Paris. We have restructured and decorated this apartment with passion and thought, as we are both art and design amateurs. We have tried to leave our print in every detail and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
