Charmingly tucked behind the gorgeous Rue Vielle du Temple, this spacious 2-bedroom is the ideal location to discover the City with all the comforts of home.
We have an airy and light-filled apartment in the heart of the Marais on the first floor of a 17th century building.
This aristocratic building has old world charm and modern comfort. Majestic dimensions define this superbly located apartment tucked behind the gorgeous Rue Vielle du Temple. Old wood paneling, library bookshelves and enormous floor to ceiling windows lend the main living space elegance and reflect the building's historic status. The decor is a mix of traditional French – bergère chairs, for example – contemporary and art deco that gives it immense personality and individuality. No surprise that it is the cherished home of a successful musician.
With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the layout of this apartment is ideal for couples or families. Decorated in an eclectic style, it mixes trendy young features with traditional Parisian pieces. The master bedroom boast original polished parquet wood floors. The apartment has two contemporary bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a rare full bathtub as well as a separate WC. The kitchen is small and intimate with a little breakfast table, perfect for a quick snack before you step into the theatre of the city that is quite literally at your doorstep.
For centuries the home to Parisian aristocracy, the Marais is very centrally located on the right bank of the Seine and spans the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. Today, it is one of the capital's most desirable districts to call home – and with its mix of twisting little streets, ancient squares, historic buildings and lively bars and restaurants it is not hard to see why. This area allows a visitor to step back in Parisian history simply by roaming the quaint neighborhood. The smell of the freshly baked challah from the Pletzl, Paris' Jewish Quarter, wafts over the cobblestoned streets. Do not miss a stroll round the majestic Place des Vosges or the Musée Picasso. All of Paris is accessible from this special apartment. As an added treat, just a few blocks away, you will find one of the best Parisian pastry shops - La République Pâtissière.
In an ideal layout, the two bedrooms are at completely opposite side of the apartment - perfect for those needing their own space and looking for privacy. One bedroom is overlooking the street (queen bed) while the 2nd bedroom (king or twin beds) is overlooking an interior courtyard. The salon, or living room, is spacious and lined in charming bookshelves. The dining table is connected to the salon that also includes a fireplace and large windows. The street is a one-way road and quiet during the day and night, the apartment itself is well isolated. There are 2 bathrooms, one has a shower and the second one has a bathtub. There are two separate toilets, one near the entrance, one near the bathroom with the bathtub. There is also a sofa bed in the salon that sleeps one person.
