just a stone’s throw from Rue Faubourg-Saint-Honoré
This flat, near to the elegant Rue Faubourg-Saint-Honoré and its aristocratic mansion houses, looks down on to the elegant Rue-Pasquier and Rue-Chauveau-Lagarde in Paris’ 8th arrondissement. In this lively, bustling district, cafes and good restaurants stand side by side with the tailors and bootmakers that inspired Marcel-Proust when writing his famous work “In Search of Lost Time”. The district has an excellent public transport network, including Madeleine, Concorde and Saint-Augustin underground stations, making it easy to move around the French capital.
A furnished, family flat of good standing
Completely restored by an architect, the refinement of these premises comes from the successful combination of their 19th century features and a contemporary decor: designer furniture made by traditional craftsmen, white walls and oak wood parquet flooring, precious exotic wood, marble and granite, gilt bronze and brushed brass. Cutting-edge technology, with reversible air-conditioning as well as concealed loud speakers and screens, is discreetly installed in every room of the flat.
As of the entrance hall, the picture window, with a view over the restored courtyard, lets copious amounts of warm light into a vestibule, spanning more than 20 m², where an Apparatus chandelier crowns a bronze occasional table, standing on oak wood parquet flooring laid in a star pattern. Exotic wood panelling, composed of lacquered mottled limba, conceals hanging spaces, a toilet and the entrance to the kitchen. This vestibule provides access to a 60 m² reception room, also used as a dining room. Under a ceiling edged with acanthus leaf friezes, numerous windows with gilt bronze casement bolts and white walls enhance the sober and original comfort of the furniture: facing the Louis XV style fireplace, a solid bronze coffee table and a comfortable light-coloured wool settee are topped with a constellation of tiny integrated spotlights. In contrast, a purple-red coloured alcove houses a study area. On the dining room side are a large table and a bookshelf unit, made of lacquered limba and black-tinted oak wood. Nearby, a glass and gilt bronze door opens into the 20 m² kitchen, with terrazzo flooring. Set out around a Belvedere granite central unit are oak wood seats resembling sculptures. The electrical appliances are first rate with an integrated sound system, a Liebherr wine cellar as well as steam, microwave and traditional ovens. It adjoins a linen room.
The more private areas are laid out on either side of the reception rooms. A 33 m² master suite is illuminated by a row of windows, looking out over the Parisian facades and rooftops. A dressing room, with its mirrored cupboards featuring brass fixtures and fittings, precedes a bathroom, lined with white marble tiles. On the other side are two separate bedrooms, each spanning 18 m², and their Burgundy stone bathroom. Once again, Louis XV style marble fireplaces, oak wood parquet flooring and white walls are subtly combined with the modern touches of built-in cupboards.
Between Rue-Royale, Rue Faubourg-Saint-Honoré and Place-de-la-Madeleine, the district’s refined atmosphere precedes that of this address. Peace and harmony reign in this furnished, family flat of good standing. Its contemporary restoration works, meticulously carried out in keeping with its original decor, blend modern-day home comforts and aesthetic requirements. In addition to the absolute peace and quiet, much sought-after in the heart of the French capital, its position on the fourth floor provides a unique vista of the Parisian sky and its rooftops.
This flat could easily be used by a self-employed professional seeking to work from home.
