between Champs-Élysées and the Faubourg-du-Roule district
Paris’ 8th arrondissement, emblematic of the French capital, is one of those that marks the imagination: a showcase of French know-how and luxury, amidst politicians and diplomates, one of the world’s most appreciated tourist destinations, a business district. This home is nevertheless reminiscent of everything that contributes to this typical Parisian art of living. Near to Champs-Élysées, dubbed “the most beautiful avenue in the world”, and Arc-de-Triomphe, the building stands in a quiet, elegant street. With a profusion of public transport networks nearby, it is easy to get around the French capital.
Double landing doors open into an entrance hall, paved with veined marble tiles featuring black inlaid decoration. It is illuminated via a south-east-facing window overlooking the interior courtyard. Refined cupboards and wardrobe space cleverly conceal a guest toilet, with a wash-hand basin, behind one of the doors.
A set of wide double doors provides access to a 55 m² lounge, the parquet flooring of which is covered with carpet. Three tall windows provide a completely unobstructed view over a perpendicular street. The size of this room makes it possible to include several reception areas, one of which is cosily laid out around a black and grey veined, white marble fireplace, in good working order.
Following on from the lounge in the same direction is a first, 28 m² bedroom. With two windows overlooking the street, it provides access to a shower room, with a toilet, concealed behind a wall of wardrobe space and cupboards. Its parquet flooring is also covered with the same carpet, enhancing the impression of space, with five windows in a line when the door is left open.
A 30 m² dining room can be reached directly via the entrance hall or via the lounge. With a window overlooking the interior courtyard, it also includes a kitchen. Its light-coloured wooden units enhanced with black worksurfaces, all designed by Cormier, gives no indication of its utilitarian vocation.
Behind, a corridor leads, first of all, to a laundry room on the right-hand side. With electrical appliances doubling those of the kitchen, it also houses the flat’s air-conditioning system. It precedes a second, east-facing bedroom, spanning more than 20 m² and looking out over the interior courtyard via two windows. Cupboards and wardrobe space take up the end wall, concealing a door to a white-tiled bathroom. The latter, with two windows also looking out over the courtyard, spans a spacious floor surface area of more than 12 m² and includes cupboards, wardrobe space and a separate toilet, all concealed behind a mirrored wall.
A cellar is sold with the flat.
An old 20 m², heated shed, easily able to house a family car, stands at the end of the interior paved courtyard, in line with the entrance porch with its remote-controlled gates. For a low annual fee, it would also be possible to park a second car outside, in front of the wide double doors. The shed as well as the outside parking space are optionally available for the sum of €80,000 over and above the asking price.
In this internationally renowned district, tourists from all over the world visit the luxury boutiques and cafés seen many times on the cinema screen. Here, where multiple resources are all to hand, this flat is without doubt a refined haven of tranquillity. The result of first-class renovation works, between classicism and soberness, elegance and functionality, future owners can move in straightaway, unless they wish to create a third bedroom. This easily conceivable possibility will, in no way, perturb the layout of these premises, designed not only for receiving friends and family around the fireplace, but also for an extremely comfortable way of life.
