This two bedroom, two bathroom apartment is nestled on the Rue Charlot, a tiny one way street off of the rue de Bretagne in the Marais. The apartment is on the second floor (up two flights of stairs) in a historic building which is a former “hotel particulier” with a gorgeous cobblestone courtyard and a grand entryway.
We lovingly and comprehensively renovated this residence in 2010-11 restoring herringbone oak floors and an original stained glass window while opening up the space to take advantage of double exposure in the living room, seamlessly integrating a stunning designer kitchen, adding new jewel-box bathrooms, and installing central heating and air- conditioning. The luxury furnishings complete this sophisticated pied-a-terre.
The bright and airy living space is the heart of the apartment. The spacious room is flooded with light which reflects off of the herringbone oak floors. The state of the art designer kitchen features top-end appliances and a sleek white Corian countertop with grey lacquer cabinets. The island merges into a solid oak table (at table height) which seats 4-6 people for dinner. We conceived the kitchen as a casual and convivial space so we also integrated plugs into the tabletop so it can also be used as a workspace.
The sitting area blends modern design with the comfort and elegance of the French salon. Louis XVI chairs are beautifully upholstered in Paul Smith stripes and positioned opposite a sleek sofa for conversation. A sumptuous armchair is positioned with a view of the historic mansion across the street for reading or contemplation. Powder blue taffeta curtains pair with a modern take on the chandelier to complete the marriage of traditional elegance with modern design. The sofa converts into a queen-sized bed with a thick mattress to sleep an occasional guest or children.
The entertainment center includes a sound dock for your ipod, a multizone dvd and a flat screen TV. There is cable table television with some English news channels. Wifi internet is enabled throughout the apartment.
Bedroom one features an original stained glass window that has been lovingly restored. It is decorated in chocolate and coral tones and features an American King size (180) bed, (that can be separated and made up as two twin beds) with hotel quality linens. There is also a built-in hanging closet. The en-suite bathroom is clean and minimalist in beige tile with a toilet, sink, mirrored medicine cabinet and large tub with wall-mounted shower attachment and glass shower screen.
You reach bedroom two from a long hallway which gives it an especially private feel. The cozy bedroom is romantically furnished in beige and bordeaux tones with premium linens. It has a large window overlooking the picturesque courtyard of the historic mansion across the street. There is also a roomy closet.
The adjoining shower room is a veritable jewel-box with amethyst glass tiles. It has a spacious glass shower cabin, power showerhead and small sink with vanity mirror. The powder room is conveniently located across the hall from the shower room.
The two bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the apartment-an ideal layout for couples traveling together as well as families.
