This apartment is so much more gorgeous in person; photos just don’t do it justice.  The chic and sleek modern upgrades act as a counterpoint to more historic elements, resulting in a fresh take on the traditional Paris apartment.  The soothing grey entry opens to a vast 40 m² living room with three arched French doors that frame the magnificent facade of the School of Fine Arts. The contrast between the light beams and oak herringbone wood flooring, and the dark fireplace with its black marble mantelpiece give this room a warm and sophisticated charm.

Predominantly facing west, this 2-story flat is bright, sophisticated and spa-like, while retaining its rustic charm. The extensive renovation spared no expense.  The choice of warm hues, the use of old-fashioned plaster tiles, identical to the original ones, in the bathrooms and the addition of doors made of Macassar-style, striated wood in the dressing rooms are the most obvious signs of the attention to detail.  The chic furnishings are sold with the flat, providing a move-in ready, turn key solution.
