Deep in the heart of La Rive Droite synonymous with affluence and luxury living since the 19th Century, here we have a smart and contemporary one bedroom 4th floor studio in the magnificent 8th Arrondissment. A perfectly practical space complete with concierge, designed for fast-paced living.
This bright flat is totally open-plan with the living space split into three zones. As you enter the apartment the high-spec kitchen is on the right. A clean dark wood suite with chrome fittings give a luxurious feel and a breakfast bar with dining for up to three.
The living space has a deep black sofa with pouf, trendy tri-pod floor lamp, coffee table and large flat screen TV. The bedroom has a comfy double bed and mirrored wardrobes for storage. The tiled bathroom has a modern suite, bathtub with shower head and a towel rack radiator.
The whole flat enjoys typical Parisian views overlooking pretty French windows with Juliette balconies.
In the second half of the 19th Century Napoleon III commissioned Georges-Eugene Haussmann to clean-up Paris. His brief was to replace the narrow medieval alleys and poor sanitation with desirable green spaces, aqueducts and tree-lined boulevards allowing quick access from one side of the city to the other. The lasting impact of Haussmann’s transformation of Paris can be felt in abundance in the beautiful 8th Arrondissment.
Wander the lengths Boulevard Haussman and discover the once exclusive, but now global retail giants Galeries Lafayette and Au Printemps. Avenue des Champs-Élysées, initially conceived in the 18th Century is today Europe’s best-loved High Street. The Arc de Triomphe, built to celebrate Napoleon’s great successes is the grand focal point at the end of the Avenue.
The stunning Grand Palais is also close-by; opened in 1900 for the Universal Exhibition, it is recognisable from a far due to its ornate glass roof and is a favoured backdrop of Chanel couture fashion shows.
