Property description

Just steps from the rue Cler food market in the prestigious seventh arrondissement, Champ de Mars Apartment strikes the perfect note of Parisian sophistication and elegance with its eclectic mix of modern and antique furnishings in a classic Haussmann-style building.

Three Bedrooms, Two Full Bathrooms, Space & Privacy

The apartment’s two full bathrooms make it ideal for two couples while the three bedrooms make it perfectly suitable for up to six persons. In all events, the spacious entry gallery, salon, and fully equipped dine-in kitchen ensure this apartment will provide both style and comfort for your stay in Paris.

The apartment is entered through a spacious hallway, which serves as a gallery for the revolving collection of 19th and 20th century paintings of the apartment owners. Immediately to the right is the salon and the front master bedroom with its en suite bathroom.

Down the hallway to the left are the kitchen/dining area and the second bedroom. The small third bedroom, with its fold-out sleep sofa, and the second bathroom are directly off the entry hall.

One of the most appealing aspects of this 980-square foot apartment is its layout, which stretches from the front of the building facing the street to the interior courtyard.

The two main bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the apartment, ensuring a measure of privacy even when the apartment is fully occupied. Double French doors at either end of the entrance hall also provide, as needed, an additional element of privacy.

Classic Parisian Features

The apartment itself is a classic Haussmann-style affair renovated to highlight its original features -- among them: parquet floors, extensive wainscoting and ceiling mouldings, and three marble fireplaces, each with its own mantle-to-ceiling mirror. Flowing silk drapes adorn the apartment’s five double door-windows and their iron-rimmed balconies.

Dramatic lighting fixtures - a little art nouveau gem in the entrance hall, another in the den, a romantic Napoleon III gilded brass chandelier in the master bedroom, a globe-studded belle époque lustre in the salon, a retro 1950’s folie in the dining area, and an eight-light, wheat-hued metal chandelier taken from a 1930’s boulangerie in the rear bedroom - take full advantage of the ten foot plus ceiling height. Oriental carpets and tasteful art work set a tone of restrained elegance.

Master Bedroom

From the entry hallway, the master bedroom is reached through the salon and its two sets of double French doors, making this bedroom with its en suite bath its own private enclave within the apartment. The bedroom has a 152-cm (60 inches wide) double bed. The well-lit master bathroom harkens back to the turn of the century with its black and white tiles and classic fixtures.

The second bedroom is located at the opposite end of the apartment and overlooks the spacious interior courtyard. Here, the beds may be arranged as twins or a queen-size double.

The third bedroom is located off the entrance hall way and is furnished with a sofa bed that can sleep two. The second and third bedrooms bedroom are served by the hall bath, whose handsome new appointments and fixtures all draw their inspiration from the early 1900’s.

Fully Equipped Eat-in Kitchen

The dine-in kitchen is located between the entry hallway and the second bedroom and can be closed off from the front of the apartment by a set of double French doors.

The L-shaped work area features a granite counter top, all modern appliances, and cabinetry done in lightly stained oak in a style reminiscent of an early 20th century Parisian bourgeois kitchen. An early 20th century painting of a Mediterranean coastal scene overlooks the 18th century country farm table and the six wooden bistro chairs that provide the setting for everyday dining.

For larger gatherings, the table can be expanded to accommodate eight. Cream-colored silk curtains frame the windows overlooking the interior courtyard.

Gracious Living Room

Set off from the rest of the apartment by two sets of double French doors, the salon provides a restful space for reading, quiet contemplation, tv watching, informal gatherings while planning the day’s activities - or a venue for elegant entertaining.

Off-white silk curtains set the tone, framing the two double, south-facing windows overlooking the street. A deep brown velvet sofa and two 1940’s vintage easy chairs speak of comfort as much as simple elegance.

To the left of the marble fireplace with its gilded mirror is an unusual Napoleon III secretaire; to the right, a 19th century English vitrine. Presiding over it all are 19th and 20th century French paintings.

Central Location

Located midway between the Invalides and the Eiffel Tower, the apartment is on the second floor on a one-way cross street between Avenues Bosquet and Bourdonnais. One and a half blocks to the west is the delightful Children’s Carousel on the Champ de Mars, the expansive park which runs from the Eiffel Tower to the Ecole Militaire.

Just a block and a half to the east is the rue Cler, a pedestrian market street with a dazzling array of specialty food shops and market stalls. The Ecole Militaire metro stop is a two-minute walk to the south. A ten-minute walk in the other direction leads to the Pont d’Alma over the Seine and onto the chic boutiques of avenue Montaigne.

Neighborhood Food Shops and Restaurants

It is no surprise that within a five minute walk are a dozen top-rated restaurants and bistros and many, many more food shops. This elegant quarter is home to well-to-do Parisians and the food and restaurant offerings show it.

In short, Champ de Mars Apartment may provide some of the most fond memories of your next stay in Paris. So check the calendar below to see if the dates you want are still available. If they are, then for the keys to this lovely apartment -- and a fresh bouquet of flowers and complimentary bottle of champagne upon your arrival -- please contact us now with your reservations or inquiry.

Year Purchased: 2005

About: I live in Washington DC and I am looking forward to the time when I can be a much more frequent visitor to this apartment. In the meantime, call Stacey and be my guest!

Why Gros-Caillou, Paris, France:
They say in Paris that you will spend 80 percent of your time, as a resident, in your 'quartier' or neighborhood. That may apply less to visitors but, still, where you stay is important. This apartment is centrally located but in an area that retains its neighborhood charm and elegance. The quarter has a lovely neighborhood feel with great food shops and restaurants. Spacious parks and grand monuments are just around the corner. You, too, may soon feel at home here.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This Hausmann style apartment was exactly what I was looking for. It's classic Paris, from the turn of the century -- the building dates to 1898 -- and this apartment in particular retained many of its original features: parquet floors, moldings, and fireplaces. The bathrooms and kitchen have, of course, been modernized but in a way that blends in with the turn-of-the century furnishings.
