a bright, 193 m² flat in a Louis-Philippe period building
In a quiet, sunny street, between Rue-Royale and Rue-du-Faubourg-Saint-Honoré. This street, divided into building plots in 1650, is bordered by mansion houses and buildings dating from the 18th century and the Louis-Philippe period. The nearby Church of St. Mary Magdalene (Église de la Madeleine) and Place-de-la-Concorde contribute to the majesty of the premises. Saint-Honoré and La-Madeleine markets as well as local shops are but a stone’s throw away, as are renowned schools such as Condorcet and Racine Lycées (sixth form colleges). The district has an excellent public transport system including buses, the underground and the RER A and E train lines.
A family flat of high standing
This elegant, 193 m² flat still has all of its stately, period features. Tall windows, fitted with slatted shutters, let copious amounts of light into all of the east and west-facing rooms. The 3.3 m high, moulded ceilings and walls are painted white, as are the double, moulded doors. The floor is covered with herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring. The 23 m² entrance gallery immediately sets the tone with its peaceful, welcoming atmosphere. Each of the main rooms has a Carrara marble, Louis XV style fireplace. The living-dining room comprises a superb, 40 m² reception area, the total reception area spanning up to 63 m², and on either side, two bright bedrooms, respectively spanning 27 and 29 m², both with a fireplace and a bathroom. A fourth bedroom could be created. Overlooking the paved courtyard, in the main suite, the bright bedroom is enhanced with a wardrobe and a bathroom, with black marble floor tiles and salmon-coloured walls. The 12 m² kitchen, with its eating area and terracotta floor tiles, is illuminated via a delightful flower-filled window. A nearby pantry is also used as a laundry room.
The elegance of the premises clearly reflects that of their address. Although this flat has been immaculately kept, it is in need of some attention. Set in this lively, elegant district of Paris’ 8th arrondissement in the heart of the French capital, this flat could be used as a family home or for organising functions. It would also suit a self-employed professional seeking to work from home. And in the paved courtyard, over and above the asking price, is a vast lock-up garage that would appear essential.
