hôtel d'Avaray and the town hall, a 130 m² family flat with three bedrooms
The property is located in the Saint-Thomas-d'Aquin district, in the immediate vicinity of the rue de Bellechasse and the rue de Varenne, in the heart of the protected area of the 7th arrondissement. Today, the district is known for the large number of embassies and ministries housed in a wealth of townhouses one more elegant and grand than the other. Here, the delicate railings, the imposing carriage entrances and the high walls hide large gardens where diplomats and businessmen move about hidden from prying eyes. The flat is located within walking distance of one of the first department stores, which was founded in 1838: Le Bon Marché. Today, the venerable building still houses some of the best deli grocery stores in the capital. The flat is also very close to renowned elite professional schools such as Sciences-Po, EHESS and the Atelier de Sèvres, as well as the Lycée Victor-Duruy and several nursery and primary schools. The Rue du Bac (line 12) and Varenne (line 13) metro stations are a 5-minute walk away. The RER C station Musée d'Orsay is nearby. A large number of bus lines also serve this area (63, 69, 83, 84, 63 94).
The flat has a classic layout. The entrance leads to a separate toilet and bathroom on one side, and to the long, fully fitted kitchen on the other. In the continuation, the first bedroom of 12 m² boasts a black marble fireplace. Opposite the entrance, the 27 m² dining room adjoins the equally large sitting room, which has an elegant period herringbone parquet floor. Separated by a double door, under a high ceiling with cornices and mouldings, the two rooms open directly onto each other and allow the creation of a large reception area. On the opposite side, the two other rooms of 17 and 11m² are undisturbed and overlook the courtyard. They share a shower room. The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub. A cellar completes the property. The flat is in need of some refurbishment. It is also possible to purchase a 9 m² service room on the fourth floor.
Sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the city, a stone's throw from the exciting Saint-Germain-des-Prés district and the high places of the Republic, the flat is like a jealously guarded secret. A property of this quality represents a certain privilege in the very exclusive 7th arrondissement and is well worth discovering. It is hidden from view and offers many assets: its convenient layout, its classic décor and its brightness. Some refurbishment and possibly a conversion will make it an ideal home for a family or someone looking for a pied-à-terre in the heart of the world city.
