This flat is halfway between two squares, Place-du-Marché-Saint-Honoré and Place-Vendôme, the latter being one of the most famous in Paris and synonymous with luxury worldwide. Place-Vendôme was designed in 1699 by the architect of Versailles, Jules-Hardouin-Mansart, for Louis XIV who wanted an awe-inspiring place embodying his absolute power in the centre of Paris. Napoleon 1st had the monarch’s statue replaced by a column cast in the bronze of 1,200 canons seized from the enemy. But since the Second Empire, the politics of the square have been replaced by luxury, and the great names in the jewellery trade have created a nest of diamonds, rubies and emeralds in the setting formed by Place-Vendôme and its extension, Rue-de-la-Paix. All around the pretty and lively Place-du-Marché-Saint-Honoré are café terraces, restaurants and a twice-weekly market, paying tribute to its name. The centre of the square features a glass building designed by Ricardo-Bofill. Alleyways, ornamental pools and flower parterres are just a stone throw away in Tuileries’ Gardens, as are all kinds of local shops. This district has an extensive public transport network.
This fourth and top floor flat has the sky as an upstairs neighbour. Elegant renovation works have created an open-plan living area. The front door opens into an entrance hall and a study which could become a third bedroom. This flat is laid out in an L-shape and its ceilings follow the lie of the roof, leaving the original roofing framework exposed. A flight of stone steps lead to a living room with an open-plan fitted kitchen, a dining area and a lounge area, enhanced with a fireplace. The floor is covered with wide strip pattern solid oak wood parquet flooring. A hall area leads to a bedroom, with a cupboard, and to the master bedroom which includes an open-plan bathroom with a bath. Peace and quiet reign in this air-conditioned flat which is filled with light via double-glazed windows and skylights. Most of the views are unobstructed.
This flat, steeped in Parisian elegance, abounds in modern-day home comforts. Its light, airy rooms have undergone outstanding, extremely tasteful renovation works. Its exceptional location, in an old and stately Paris, makes it a wonderful pied-à-terre right in the heart of the French capital. Unless the irresistible charm of the district and its quality of life convince a family, with one or two children, that they should take up residence here and nowhere else. This would be quite understandable, especially as there are some very good schools just a stone’s throw away.
