Rue-Auguste-Comte, in front of the Orangery and Luxembourg Gardens. Created in 1866 and given the name of the French philosopher and mathematician, founder of the School of Positivism, the street reflects an architectural homogeneity which bestows it with a great deal of elegance. Sector for Lycée Montaigne and Lycée Stanislas, not forgetting the Ecole-Alsacienne. The excellent public transport network, including the Velib' bike rental points, make everyday life and moving around the French capital easy. Luxembourg RER train station on line B is 200 m away. Bus routes 82, 83, 85 and 38 pass nearby.
The 1929, Art Deco style building
Standing on the edge of Luxembourg Gardens, facing the Orangery, this six-storey building is constructed from dressed stone. The impressive, finely crafted, wrought iron entrance door as well as the entrance hall, enhanced with bas-reliefs and frosted glass wall lamps are typical of the Art Deco style. The floors are reached via a superb rosewood lift or via the large stairway with its curved brass railings. The embossed facade on the two first floors features stone balconies with balusters and wide arched windows. This co-owned building is immaculately kept with a caretaker living on the premises.
The lift and the majestic stone stairway go up to the second floor. The flat’s oak wood front door opens into an entrance gallery which provides access to two reception rooms with parquet flooring overlooking the street. The spacious living room, illuminated via two impressive windows facing the Orangery, is heated via a wide fireplace with a stone mantel, topped with an old mirror. The dining room which extends the living room looks out over the trees in the gardens.
Following on is the main bedroom, dominated by the towers of Saint-Sulpice church. It comprises a vast dressing room, a bathroom, with a bath, and a separate toilet. A second bedroom, overlooking a courtyard, is laid out opposite the living room. A corridor leads left from the entrance hall to a convivial kitchen which can also be reached via the back courtyard and the service lift. Another corridor leads to two more bedrooms, both very bright and overlooking the courtyard, as well as a bathroom and a separate toilet.
This flat, in an exceptional setting between the Orangery and the Garden of the Great Explorers, meets an impressive number of criteria. Vast and bright, this haven of peace was perfectly designed to produce a layout such that it is easy to move from one room to another. The elegant building and its rich decor place it in family and student surroundings where it is pleasant to stroll amongst the luxury boutiques and the mythical café terraces in the area around Saint-Germain-des-Près. The Orangery being just at the foot of the building, visitors have but to take the lift to be able to see all of the Medici’ gardens. Not forgetting the quality of the schools which have forged the district’s reputation and remain an essential asset.
