near to the old Cognacq-Jay television studios and Alma Bridge
The street was created in the midst of the 1930’s Art Deco period. Most of the buildings date from this time, reflecting a certain homogeneity. On Paris’ Left-Bank, in the Gros-Cailloux district, behind Quai-d'Orsay and a hundred or so metres from Alma Bridge, the building adjoins that of the famous old studios used for the beginning of French television, prior to the construction of Maison-de-la-Radio. Shops, restaurants and the hustle and bustle of Rue-Saint-Dominique are but a stone’s throw away.
A station on RER train line C is at the end of the street and adjoins the district’s underground and bus services.
This flat, with its large double entrance doors, takes up the entire floor.
The lounge-dining room is a 76 m², through reception room, illuminated via large, rectangular sash windows.
The spacious kitchen is also a living room where the family can all eat together.
The master bedroom is a suite, with its study, its bathroom and its adjoining bathroom. The night-time section also comprises two quiet bedrooms, overlooking a vast courtyard, and a brightly coloured bathroom. A fourth, more independent, extremely luminous bedroom has its own shower room.
There is oak wood parquet flooring throughout this flat, except for the children’s area where the floor features light-grey polished concrete.
The basement, comprising a large, sound cellar and a carparking space (over and above the asking price), completes this property and is reached via a service lift.
The flat’s front door opens into a vast, extremely bright living room that is divided into three sections. These comprise a dining area, with a large Art Deco style shelf unit taking up an entire wall, a lounge area, with a stone fireplace, and a last, south-facing section, which exudes tranquillity and relaxation. It looks out over a courtyard which adds depth to the room and increases its luminosity.
Its original, wonderful oak wood parquet flooring is still in existence and all the rooms feature large, rectangular sash windows.
Dark blue furniture gives a cheerful and chic appearance to the large kitchen where the family can all eat together.
The 34 m² master bedroom is part of a suite, with an adjoining bathroom as well as a large dressing room.
The bathroom, with a bath, an Italian-style shower and a toilet, features beige marble, blending harmoniously with the style in the rest of the flat.
The children’s area comprises an anteroom, followed by two quiet bedrooms, overlooking the courtyard through large sash windows and featuring numerous cupboards. The floor is covered with light-grey polished concrete. The bathroom features coloured tiles, totally in keeping with the tastes of the younger generations.
The last, more independent bedroom is very bright. It has its own shower room.
Radiators concealed by casing are under the windows in every room, thus preserving the pure lines of the flat.
The name of this street brings to mind the enchanting memories of radio listeners and TV viewers prior to the construction of the Maison-de-la-Radio. But the years of excitement have passed and peace reigns throughout this Art Deco street. Both the building and the flat reflect this style, with straight and curved lines subtly merged and rectangular openings extended to accommodate even more light. The reception area is extensive and the four bedrooms sufficiently different to satisfy all members of the family. The modern-day home comforts are also those of a very beautiful district.
