in a modernised, 18th century building near to the Elysée Palace
In Paris’ elegant, upmarket 8th arrondissement, between Rue-du-Faubourg-Saint-Honoré and Rue-Saussaies, the street was created in 1723. Houses were then built on the former gardens of the mansion house that had belonged to the Marshal of Duras (1625-1704), who notably took part in the conquest of La-Comté under Louis XIV.
The neighbouring Elysée Palace and Place-de-la-Concorde contribute to the legendary magnificence of this Parisian district where ambassadors from all over the world mingle with some of the French capital’s oldest families. Prestigious brand names, the Saint-Honoré and Madeleine markets as well as food shops are but a stone’s throw away as are Miromesnil and Saint-Philippe-du-Roule underground stations (lines 9 and 13). The nearby Seine embankments provide easy access to the centre of Paris and its suburbs.
This bright flat, in pristine condition, is on the third floor, reached via a lift. Completely unoverlooked, it faces east, with a view of the restored facades in the courtyard. It spans a total floor surface area of 90 m², with an entrance gallery extending towards a fitted kitchen and a shower room, embellished with Carrera marble. Further on is a spacious, 34 m² living room, with a dining area. The smallest bedroom could easily become a study or a nursery. The second, 19 m² bedroom, laid out like a suite, has extensive built-in wardrobe space. It adjoins a private bathroom, lined with Burgundy stone. The property also includes a cellar and a secure car parking space in the basement. This flat, which could be sold furnished, would also be suitable as premises for a professional activity.
A spacious pied-à-terre or premises for a professional activity
The pleasant, elegant harmony of this immaculately decorated flat comes from the combination of its classical decor and the light omnipresent in each room. Completely unoverlooked, large windows let copious amounts of light into this east-facing flat, with its wonderful views of the old, restored facades in the courtyard. The entrance gallery, with its Burgundy stone floor tiles and light-coloured walls, provides access to a shower room, lined with Carrara marble, followed by a kitchen, fitted with brilliant white wooden units and illuminated via a large window.
At the end of the entrance gallery, a 34 m² living room features a plum-coloured carpet and light-hued walls, all reflected in a vast mirror. It also includes a dining area. A 9 m² reading room could become a second bedroom, in the peace and quiet, like an alcove. At the other end and quite independent, a 19 m², luminous, main bedroom is enhanced with a plum-coloured carpet. It is followed by a bathroom, its walls and floor lined with Burgundy stone. Both the entrance gallery and the suite have extensive built-in wardrobe space. The property also includes a car parking space in the basement.
In the peace and quiet and the light, this classically sober property is set amidst mansion houses dating from the Age of Reason, near to the river Seine, the Tuileries Gardens and Place-de-l'Opéra. In Paris’ prestigious 8th arrondissement, this flat combines luminosity and practicality, both of which could be enhanced with a personalised decor. It is equally well suited to a family home as premises for a professional activity.
