It is located in the heart of the Old Marais, or 4th arrondisement, near Hôtel de Ville and Pompidou Center. The neighborhood is teeming with restaurants, shops, museums and is considered the liveliest quarter in town, yet our street is very quiet. Nearby Rue Rambuteau is the local market street with a variety food purveyors of all kinds, including award-winning bakeries. Very nearby is one of the finest spas in Paris, offering massage, beauty treatments & luxury hammam, frequented by celebrities.
The house features several living areas, four bedrooms, four and a half baths, two kitchens and two kitchenettes. It functions as either a large townhouse that can sleep up to eight persons, or as four private apartments. It is decorated with antique, period-style, and contemporary furnishings and fine art which perfectly complement the faithfully restored medieval architecture, all of which reflect the designer's signature high-style, understated luxury and sense of comfort. The suites are spread out over six levels organized around a 'landmark' circular 'escargot' stairwell with its orignal central-post, carved handrail & antique tile treads
MAîTRE SUITE: (a 2-level suite) accommodating 1-2 persons: High ceilings, massive oak beams, limestone tiles and wide-plank flooring are hallmarks of the largest apartment. The dramatic foyer with tall windows, unique armoire and large Flemish-style chandelier opens through double-doors to the bedroom with its three-meter-high tester bed and limestone hearth. A vaulted passage leads down five steps from the foyer to the Salon with its Renaissance wood-burning fireplace, deep velvet sofa and high-backed chairs. A second sofa, in Louis XIII-style, forms a cozy corner and fronts a dining table suitable for up to 8 people. This suite features a stunning master bathroom clad in oversized 'pierre de lune' stone and a fully-equipped stainless-steel kitchen. It is eminently suited for entertaining.
AVIARY SUITE: (a studio suite) accommodating 1-2 persons: This charming suite features red and white 'Toile de Jouey' wall covering and a large collection of shorebird lithographs by an 18th century naturalist. A marble 'faux fireplace' with facing Louis XV chairs make a charming sitting area for two. Wide plank flooring and ancient beams further enhance the traditional & thoroughly romantic atmosphere. In addition to the main room there is a kitchenette and a white marble bathroom with window.
DUPLEX SUITE: (A 2-level suite) accomodating 1-4 persons: A windowed entry with a limestone arched kitchenette gives out to a light flooded double height 'studio' living room. A stair and catwalk lead up to the mezzanine bedroom with its 'mansard' window and view over the lower level. The large living room is arranged with two deep daybed/sofas flanking a 'faux fireplace' and a round table with Louis XIII style dining chairs at the window. The soaring white walls, ancient beams and antique terracotta tile flooring give this suite rustic simplicity and drama. There is a stone-clad bathroom downstairs & half-bath upstairs.
GARÇONNIERE: (a studio suite) - accommodating 1-2 persons: The top floor is a cozy & romantic retreat, with 'tented' striped walls and ceiling and a mirrored alcove bed in a traditional 'campaign' style. There is mahogany furniture, a small dormer window-seat and cafe table as well as an upholstered Louis XIII-style armchair. A separate beamed, skylit entry and kitchenette lead to an all-limestone bathroom with an oversized stall shower
