16th arrondissement, near shops and the square Place du Trocadéro
The property is nestled on the street Rue de la Tour in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, near shops and Avenue Paul Doumer, not far from the famous square Place du Trocadéro. The road, once part of the village of Passy, owes its name to a medieval tower that probably served as a prison. This tower was turned into a windmill, then remodelled during the First French Empire. You can still see it today. The neighbourhood is mostly made up of apartment buildings from the 19th century and early 20th century. These edifices are all very elegant and reflect the prosperity of the upper middle classes who traditionally live in this district of Paris. The area is well connected to the rest of the French capital via public transport: nearby you find the metro stations Rue de la Pompe (line 9), Passy (line 6) and Trocadéro (lines 6 and 9), as well as buses along Avenue Paul Doumer.
The apartment is nestled on the third floor, the building’s top level. It is set back from the street, behind a terrace. The dwelling offers a floor area of around 33m² and a terrace of roughly 8m² fitted within the roof. It has been entirely redesigned. Today, the apartment is in a brand-new condition. You first step into a small hallway that leads to the main room: a fully fitted kitchen, a dining area with a table, and a comfortable lounge. The dining table separates the lounge from the kitchen. The far wall of the lounge is filled with bookshelves and adorned with a false fireplace. On the building’s court side, there is a bedroom with an office space. A large glass wall, which can be hidden behind a curtain, separates the bedroom from the lounge. The bedroom connects to a bathroom that is filled with natural light from two skylights. This bathroom includes an island bathtub, two washbasins and a separate lavatory. Oak herringbone parquet adorns the floors. The walls are embellished with mouldings and the ceilings are underlined with cornices. Special attention has been given to details like switches and lights, as well as practical features like demister mirrors and many storage spaces. You reach the south-facing terrace via three sets of French windows. This terrace has teak-wood decking, a pergola, many plants and an automated watering system. The apartment is sold furnished and fitted. When a caretaking firm made the apartment available for rental stays in the summer of 2023, the property generated considerable revenue.
This delightful dwelling is ready for you to settle into it straight away. Each detail of this charming apartment has been masterfully designed to create a welcoming atmosphere in a style that is modern, with contemporary fittings, yet timeless, with old embellishments along the walls and ceilings and a gleaming parquet. Its top-floor position and its south-facing terrace are precious assets. The splendid interior is remarkably spacious and light, brightened up by the whiteness of the walls and brought out by the warm tones of timber found everywhere here. This elegant haven would suit a couple perfectly or serve as an ideal pied-à-terre in the French capital. Moreover, it could generate considerable revenue from rent.
