Paris Arrondissement 4 apartment description

BRAND NEW: Total renovation just completed on December 15th 2013. Located in one of the most fashionable areas of the heart of Paris with museums, art galleries, trendy boutique shopping, historical architecture and beautiful parks at your doorstep, this architect-designed apartment is a true gem. It is located in the heart of the city, in the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris, on the 3rd floor (2nd floor by European standards) with an elevator in a beautiful building with windows on two private quiet courtyards. The apartment has central air-conditioning, a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious modern bathroom, and full-sized clothes washing machine and separate clothes dryer.

The bathroom, kitchen, and all the appliances are new, while the original elements of the apartment have been carefully restored, including the limestone wall, antique marble fireplace, original oak floor in the bedroom, and beautiful 18th century oak columns in the living room.

The street the apartment is on dates to the 1100s and is one of the most historic and beautiful medieval streets in the city. At your doorstep are numerous restaurants, art galleries, and in particular many trendy designer clothing boutiques. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum, the beautiful Place des Vosges, and Notre Dame Cathedral, as well as numerous trendy clothing boutiques and galleries. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes through the heart of the city.

Pale white glass mosaic tiles cover the bathroom walls. The sanded glass wall and door to the bathroom provides ample natural light in addition to the embedded ceiling lighting and an above-mirror light. An electrical outlet in the bathroom allows you to plug in shavers and toothbrushes (an adapter is provided - please make sure your appliances function on European 240 volt circuits), and a hairdryer and magnifying mirror are also provided.

The high quality bedding and larger than queen size bed (160 cm wide and 200 cm long – which is between a queen and king size bed) and white pressed linens provide very comfortable sleeping in the bedroom, while an equally large bed is available in the living room through the comfortable sofa-bed which has a real mattress for when 4 guests stay in the apartment. There are two closets with hangars provided: one in the living room and one in the bedroom.

The white glass cabinets and white stone counter-tops in the kitchen conceal a well equipped kitchen, including a microwave and oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, cook top with an aeration hood, including all plates, glasses, flatware, wineglasses, pots, pans, a toaster and an espresso machine (espresso provided!). The kitchen is perfect for picking up fresh food at local markets or at the numerous nearby bakeries, cheese shops, and grocers and enjoying in the apartment.

The apartment has a clothes washing machine and separate clothes dryer (available for long-term stays of 1 week or longer), as well as an iron and ironing board, providing complete laundry facilities.

The double-paned glass windows keep the apartment warm in the winter and cool in the summer, as well as very quiet. Additionally there is central air-conditioning and heating so the apartment can be the perfect temperature year-round.

The apartment has a HD flat screen television with hundreds of cable channels, including numerous English language news stations such as CNN and BBC.

Unlimited high-speed wifi connection is provided, as is a telephone with free international calls to all numbers in the United States, Canada, and landlines in Europe and several other countries.

You will be met upon arrival at the apartment and given a full explanation of how to get the most out of your stay in the apartment as well as assistance in getting oriented to the neighborhood.

          Location

          Car: Not Necessary

          The apartment is located in the heart of the city, in the Marais, which is the oldest and best preserved neighborhood in Paris (the street the apartment is on was created in the 1100s and is one of the most beautiful in the city, paved in granite, and lined with 19th century street lamps). The surrounding area is full of restaurants, art galleries, and high-fashion shopping. The apartment is within walking distance of numerous museums and monuments, including the Picasso Museum, the Carnavalet Museum (the museum of the history of Paris), the beautiful place des Vosges, Notre Dame Cathedral, and numerous others. Additionally, it is only a 2 minute walk from the apartment to the St. Paul metro station, which is on the high-speed modern automated Line 1 (the yellow line) that goes right through the heart of the city directly to numerous monuments and sites, such as the Musée du Louvre and Arc de Triomphe.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: The owner is an architect and author who specializes in renovating historic buildings in the heart of Paris. He has written extensively about the architecture of Paris, including well-known guides to the architecture of the city.

          Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
          I fell in love with this property because of the incredible location in the heart of the city on a beautifully picturesque street, combined with the historic charm of the surrounding Marais neighborhood (with its famous food and fashion boutiques). Add to that the fact that there is an elevator (only 1 in 200 buildings in this historic area have elevators) and I could not resist purchasing it.

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          Location. Surrounded by museums, incredible food, fashion boutiques, and quintessential old-world charm. Beautiful quiet building with the rarity of having an elevator.
