From the moment you enter, its clear that you have arrived someplace special.  Its mellow stone facade and stellar location boast the best views in Paris.  From the windows you can see almost every major monument in Paris.  An elevator is set to be installed later in 2016, and once that work is completed the rest of the common areas will be refreshed, making this already special property impeccable from top to bottom. quai dOrleans front door Inside, mellow parquet de Versailles floors and wood moldings are stately reminders of the history of this place and provide a lovely frame for the magnificent views.  The apartment has been decorated playfully with furnishings of the highest caliber.  An eclectic and bold interior design scheme combines precious antique elements mixed with vivid colors. The living room with its charming built-in dining area benefits from huge windows and a mirrored wall that let one enjoy the views from multiple vantage points. _DSC4639 _DSC4644 The kitchen and immense entry hall combine to form a second living / entertaining area, with the kitchen screened from view by matching antique, leaded glass doors that were signed by their French creator at the turn of the century.  A circular stair in the corner of the entry leads to the upper level guest space. quai dOrleans entry quai dOrleans Kitchen PM Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 3.53.36 PM   Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 4.04.51 PM quai dOrleans guest bathroom A distinctive guest toilet is adjacent to the huge entry / salon.                 The master bedroom is accessed from the main living / dining space and shares its amazing views of Ile de la Cité and  Notre Dame.  An elegant dressing room and closet provide a buffer between the bedroom and the spacious marble bath, forming a vast master suite.
