a bright, 178 m² flat, in the peace and quiet with a view of the Sacré-Cœur
In one of the oldest districts of the French capital, right next to Tuileries Gardens and the Louvre Palace, Rue-de-Rivoli is one of the most famous streets in Paris. The district owes its name to the old tile factory that took up the actual gardens, created by Le-Nôtre for the palace and Queen Catherine-de-Médicis. It is now one of the most sought-after areas in the French capital courtesy of its central location and its local way of life as well as its historic setting, its proximity to Place-Vendôme and the luxury boutiques in Rue-Saint-Honoré.
On the fifth floor, this flat can be accessed via a modern glazed lift. A second storey room is on the sixth floor. The T-shaped layout, with its triple aspect, bestows the flat with great luminosity and numerous points of view. It comprises an entrance hall, a guest toilet, a large lounge, a dining room, a large kitchen and a small lounge which could be used as a spare bedroom courtesy of an adjoining shower room and toilet. Further on are two bedrooms, a dressing room and a shower room with a toilet. A stairway goes up from the dining room to a large room under the rafters, illuminated via several skylights. This can be used as a vast study or be transformed into another bedroom. There is a spacious vaulted cellar in the basement. This extremely economical flat has been renovated throughout by an architect.
Reached via a lift, this 178 m² flat (or 159 m² when measured in accordance with the French Carrez law) is on the fifth and sixth or top floors of the building. In fact, a fifth floor flat has been linked to the attic space on the floor above.
The main level comprises an entrance hall which opens into a spacious corridor. It provides access, right, to a 19 m² bedroom, with wonderful views over the Parisian rooftops stretching as far as the Sacré-Cœur. In this bedroom, a second door leads to a dressing room, a bedroom and a shower room with a toilet. Double glazed doors, on the left-hand side of the entrance hall, open into a large, 77 m², L-shaped reception area, set out around the main courtyard. It comprises a lounge, a dining room and a small lounge. The view over the rooftops of Paris is captivating. The south-facing, 26 m² lounge, enhanced with cornices, adjoins the 20 m² dining room. The room in question is fitted with a discreet, contemporary style, wood-burning stove. It extends into the small lounge, which could also be used as a spare bedroom courtesy of its adjoining shower room and toilet. Further on, a large, fully fitted kitchen, spanning almost 17 m², is illuminated via a window overlooking a small courtyard. The modern units reflecting shades of grey form an elegant contrast with the light-coloured terracotta floor tiles.
The section on the second level under the rafters can be reached via a stairway concealed behind a door in the dining room. This spacious, upstairs room spans a floor surface area of almost 40 m² (or 22 m² when measured in accordance with the French Carrez law). It is illuminated via four skylights and a window looking out over the local area. Light-coloured, oak wood parquet flooring has been laid in most of the rooms; the kitchen, one of the bedrooms and the second level having terracotta floor tiles. This property also comes with a perfectly sound, vaulted stone cellar.
The exceptional peace and quiet as well as the luminosity of the premises are privileges to be appreciated to the full in the heart of the French capital. The setting, itself, is a permanent pleasure. The flat, surrounded by Parisian sky, provides an incomparable view of the city’s rooftops with the Sacré-Cœur in the distance. The district is a promise of delightful strolls through Tuileries Gardens as well as visits to the Louvre and Decorative Arts Museums, Saint-Roch church and Rue-Saint-Honoré. Designed as a comfortable, welcoming haven, this recently renovated flat will enable its future owners to recharge their batteries far from the hustle and bustle of the city and the chance to stroll around the historic centre of Paris.
