A 2-storey flat and its terrace on the top two floors of a riverside building
facing the amazing sight of Paris’ Right Bank
Paris, PARIS paris 75007 FR

Location

The building, with sober architecture typical of the 1950’s, has one of the most prestigious address in Paris, between the Alma and Alexandre-III bridges, in a first-class residential district much appreciated notably by diplomats. Les-Invalides, the Champs-Elysées gardens, the Grand-Palais and the Petit-Palais are all within easy reach. This sector has excellent underground and urban bus networks. A tree-lined service road provides easy access to the buildings.

Description

The contour and profile of the openings, the wrought ironwork on the balconies as well as the sober geometric pattern of the facade stone are reminiscent of the luxury buildings bordering New York’s Central Park. The building has nine levels, spanning a ground and eight floors, the top one of which, set slightly back, is enhanced with a stone cornice, leaving room for a terrace to run the full length of the building. The pedestrian entrance, off the street, comprises a wide, domed, glazed door, adorned with wrought ironwork. It is protected by a numerical keypad security system. The hall, completely lined with light-coloured oak wood panelling, features a counter, ideal for a doorman. Two lifts provide access to all levels from the basements and garages up to the seventh floor. There are two flats on each level. Also on the street, following on from the pedestrian entrance, is an automatic door providing access to the garage and a 7 m long car parking space, ideal for a large vehicle.

The 1st level of the flat

This flat’s double oak wood entrance doors, with their elegant handle, are set in a canted wall on the 7th floor landing. Once inside, the eye is immediately caught by the view of the Right Bank of the Seine through two wide horizontal windows. The floor is covered with natural oak wood parquet flooring, laid in a herringbone pattern. The wall housing the front door, concealed by a hanging, features panelling, also made of natural oak wood as are all the doors providing access to the various areas as well as the steps and risers of the straight stairway, balanced with a quarter turn at each end. The door and window frames, with their black satin finish, the wall patina of the bronze sheeting used in the stairwell as well as for the stringer and the dusty white walls, cornices and ceilings compose a most harmonious contemporary style.
On the right-hand side of the entrance hall, a fully fitted kitchen, also with parquet flooring like the rest of the floor, is separated from the living room by a sliding, floor-to-ceiling picture window which not only provides access to the shelves used for storing the tableware but also frames the view over the embankments and the Right Bank. The work surface is made of black granite and the floor cupboards are fronted with patined bronze. Further on, after the concealed door to the guest toilet, is an en-suite bedroom, featuring a wide floor-to-ceiling wardrobe, lined with oak wood sheeting. A west-facing terrace, planted with bamboo, extends the area outside. The bathroom is fitted with a bath, featuring wide, white resin edges. Its walls are covered from floor-to-ceiling with Roman travertine stone, filled with black resin. Other features, including black, matt finish taps, a hanging wash-hand basin, clad in natural oak wood, and a white ceiling, all reflect the same hues used throughout the flat when it was completely renovated in 2017.


Second level
The interior stairway, perfectly balanced with comfortably spaced steps, provides easy access to the upper level, to a wide sliding opening, topped with an atrium that provides access to an L-shaped terrace, preceded by a vast lounge area. The wall, lined with oak wood panelling, running alongside the stairwell, protected by glass railings, includes the door to a shower room, with the same fixtures and fittings as the bathroom on the floor below: white resin, black, matt finish taps, Roman travertine stone, filled with black resin and a white ceiling. The bedroom on this floor is illuminated by a wide window, opening on to a planted balcony. A floor-to-ceiling cupboard, with doors also lined with oak wood sheeting, blends perfectly with this refined flat. The communal heating system makes use of cast iron radiators, heated by the building’s boiler. All the communal areas are fitted with individual air-conditioning, dispatched through pipes and ducts set in the suspended ceilings.

Our opinion

1950’s architecture features enlarged openings which are a godsend when the entire Right Bank is laid out on the other side of sober picture windows. The terrace, here, is a belvedere, in one of Paris’ most majestic districts. The interior decor, with its pure lines and noble materials, exudes perfect elegance. A third bedroom could easily complete the existing two. This 2-storey flat, with the river at its feet, the Golden Triangle in its line of sight and light from the wide skies over the Ile-de-France region, is the reality that a dream could become.
