A lovely apartment that has an exceptional location: on the border of the 6th and 7th districts, it has one foot in Saint Germain and the other one in Montparnasse. This is a very pleasant and upscale area, very residential and safe. Very close to Rodin museum, the Ecole Militaire, the Invalides and also the Eiffel Tower. There are various shops on the street, bakeries, a butcher among others and the fabulous Bon Marché is a short walk away.
The closest metro stop is Vaneau, but Sevres Babylone and Duroc, where you can catch different lines, are five minutes away by foot.
This building was the barracks of the musketeers of the King so it is filled with history and has its own spirit. The building, with its wooden beams, is very authentic, and comes from the 17th century. The courtyard is also charming and was at that time a way for the musketeers horses. The Paris apartment is on the third floor without a lift (3 floor walk-up), and is made safe with a code first and then an intercom. In March 2012 the apartment has been entirely renovated by an architect and refurnished with new and top quality equipment. History and comfort are waiting for you in this apartment s. The cherry on top of the cake is the lovely 130 sq ft terrace equipped with table and chairs…or maybe it is the A/C system, with four adjustable units in the apartment (one in each room).
This spacious 1060 sq ft apartment is amazing. Everything has been organized to offer maximum comfort and convenience. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a third sleeping area on a mezzanine above the spacious main room. It can comfortably sleep uo to seven people. The entrance door to the apartment gives on to stairs with around 10-12 steps. Then you arrive on the main room. It has been divided in several areas. The comfortable living room area is well laid out around the decorative wood stove. It features a comfortable leather couch with matching armchairs and a coffee table. Should you travel without your laptop, note that you will find one in the apartment (a net book to be precise). The living room features a large flat screen TV on the wall above the wood stove, hidden behind an easily removable painting. The dining-room area features a beautiful wooden table that can comfortably accommodate up to eight people. All dishes, plates, table utensils have been chose carefully to perfectly match the spirit of the interior. There are two reversible air conditioning units in this room, one is in the dining-room, the other in the living-room. It is rather silent compared to common A/C systems.
Using the beautiful wooden stairs in the dining-room area you can access the mezzanine. It features a double bed for two people 140mx190m. Both side of the mezzanine are open on the main room. The very well equipped kitchen is in a separate room giving on to the entrance hall. This wall is made with glass and metal. Therefore you can see the kitchen from the main room. The kitchen pieces of furniture have also been chosen carefully to perfectly match the design of the whole room. It has very convenient storage units and high quality appliances (oven, induction stove, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer). Next to the kitchen door you will find a wardrobe offering some storage. From the entrance hall, five steps will lead you to the treasure of this apartment : the beautiful terrace. It has been cleverly created by the architect. It features a table with chairs. Its plants give plenty of charm to this terrace and thanks to the automatic watering system you will have nothing to do but enjoy the place! From the terrace you have a clear view on the top of Le Bon Marché and on the old Paris rooftops. This will be THE place to stay after a long day of discoveries. Note that you can store your suitcase under the stairs of the terrace.
The apartment features two beautiful bedrooms. They both give on the hallway. The master bedroom has a queen size bed (160x200), a wardrobe and a television. It also has an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and toilets. The second bedroom features two single beds (90x200). As shown on the pictures, they can be put side by side to form a king size bed (180x200) if you need. This bedroom also has a mezzanine with a bed very comfortable for one person (130x200). The skylight will give more light to this room. It also features a flat TV, a DVD player and a wardrobe. Both bedrooms have a reversible air conditioning unit. The second bathroom is located between the two bedrooms. It features a walk-in shower. You will also find separate toilets in the stairs near the apartment entrance door.
This apartment has many windows and several skylights (note that for your safety the skylight cannot be open). This will therefore be a real pleasure to spend time in this apartment. You will be enamored by this interior, a mix of vintage style furniture and contemporary features, exposed wooden beams, metal and glass conveying the impression that you are in a wonderful atelier. This apartment has nothing but top of the range equipments. It is bright, quiet, very comfortable. In a word: fantastic!
