About the property

Large And Light 2 Bedroom/2 Bath Apartment

The st. Germain des pres district of paris is perhaps the most famous neighborhood of what is already the world’s most celebrated city; this is where artists, politicians, and intellectuals have gathered for centuries. Within the somewhat vague confines of this exclusive area of paris, there are certain streets that are more desirable than others… streets that have what the french call ‘cachet’…where the buzz is subdued, refined and enticing enough to make people want to be on that particular street, not elsewhere, even though the street is more residential than anything else. No matter. The rue jacob is one of those streets where people want to be.

With all of its current cachet, centuries ago, this street used to be a simple footpath running along the northern boundary of the sprawling abby of st. Germain des pres, just outside the fortified city walls. Originally called the rue du colombier, in the early 17th century, the western end of the street was changed to ‘rue jacob’ by the devout first wife of king henry iv, otherwise known as the ‘reine margot’. She raised an “altar of jacob” at a local convent in remembrance of this biblical patriarch. The name jacob was extended to the entire street in 1836.

This apartment, located in a very quiet 17th century building, is facing due south; there are nonetheless, windows on the north courtyard side as well. With high ceilings and tall windows so typical of the period, the clarity and light in this 100 square meter flat are a rarity for a city like paris. Although quintessentially french from an architectural point of view, the décor is decidedly modern and eclectic in taste, combining art deco with baroque elements, modern art, and imposing chandeliers of hand made murano glass from italy. Refined, elegant, and airy, this flat has it all, including one of the most prestigious locations in paris.

To be sure, there is an elevator in the building that will make it a lot easier to take your luggage and groceries up to the flat. The spacious, fully equipped kitchen was designed with cooking in mind, as the owners enjoy fine cuisine of a home made variety. The large blocks of irregular cut limestone covering the kitchen floor contribute to the overall feel of an age old dwelling that has been adapted to modern standards. If living is meant to be a sensuous experience, then staying in a flat like this one is the right place to be. Light, beauty, and location combine to make a truly unique living experience for anyone in residence!

The practical layout of the flat allows for 4 people to live and spread out without getting in one another’s way. Both bedrooms have their own bathroom and toilet. The living room separates the two bedrooms, and the dining room is just inside the entrance of the flat, directly across from the kitchen.

Down on the street, when you walk out your door, you are there, in the very heart of the st. Germain des près district on the left bank. Countless shops are scattered throughout the nearby streets with everything from antiques to the latest fashions. Restaurants and cafés abound, as do jazz clubs and art galleries. You can buy your macaroons at the world famous laduree shop just a couple of blocks down the street. With all of this at your fingertips, perhaps you just might decide to stay forever…
