For sale in the 17th arrondissement near the Parc Monceau, one of Paris’s most celebrated parks, this 105 m2 (1,130 sq. ft.) apartment on avenue de Villiers is situated on the first floor of a century-old cut-stone building with elevator. It’s replete with classic features such as parquet floors, marble fireplaces with gilded mirrors above, high ceilings with plaster molding, a sitting room, and French doors that open onto a small balcony with wrought-iron railing.
Features include a fully equipped separate kitchen with a dining area, laundry with washer and dryer, and a guest lavatory that opens off the commodious entry hall. The salon and master bedroom suite are especially spacious.
The apartment was recently repainted and several appliances, including a gas heat and hot water system, were updated. Double-paned and metal shutters keep down heating costs and reduce exterior noise. Thanks to its northern and western exposure the apartment is filled with natural light.
The lobby and elevator were recently updated, and the façade was cleaned in 2012. Furnishings may be acquired at extra cost for turnkey occupancy.
The location is especially convenient for daily needs, with a public garage across the street, the Villiers Métro station nearby, and rue de Levis, which has one of Paris’ best-known open-air markets, a brief walk.
The 17th, in whose cafes Impressionism was born, is an up-and-coming neighbourhood with a small town atmosphere where swathes of industrial areas have been transformed into green expanses for sport and recreation. Bordered by picturesque English gardens, colourful markets and some of the best fine dining Paris has to offer, the 17th is ideal for a lazy afternoon stroll and bohemian daydreaming.
