This 123 m² (1324 ft²), on the third floor (european, 4th american) with elevator and balcony, is a perfectly renovated and very pleasant family apartment.
The small street Degas was created in 1930 and the building at n° 8 was built in 1932. It offers 14 family apartments in a 1930s style that is still attractive today: the building’s common areas are elegant and functional and the apartments have an optimal layout with good proportions.
The stone facade is in the style of Art Deco, with the protruding angles of the bow windows; advantageously, this building offers a balcony for each apartment, giving a view of the Seine visible at the end of the street, and the pleasure of the southwestern sun.
The common areas, maintained by a live-in building manager, are enhanced by a beautiful carpet, Art Deco stained glass windows and an elevator that has retained its old charm with its wooden cabin and wrought iron structure.
The apartment is entered through a high quality fichet double armored door. The entrance, kitchen and pantry areas have an open plan to offer a vast unified space for a dining room and a large convivial kitchen. This generous space represents the heart of the apartment for daily family life.
It continues on the street side with the double living room with access to the balcony and bay windows. With a ceiling height of approximately 2m80 (6,56 ft), the reception area appears spacious and bright.
The rear of the apartment gathers the master suite with a large dressing room and a shower room, two other bedrooms, the main bathroom, a large laundry room and the separate WC.
The apartment is in excellent condition in all respects: a thorough renovation, supervised by an architect, has been followed by constant improvements, so there will be nothing for the future owners to worry about.
The entire apartment is unified by a massive parquet floor with wide slats. All the windows are replaced by double glazing of very good quality, wood in front façade and PVC for the rest.
For families looking for four bedrooms, the living room overlooking the balcony was probably originally conceived as being able to be partitioned (by a wall or an interior glass wall) without distorting the living room in front of the bow window.
The heating and sanitary water are collective, with gas. The result is an energy performance rating (DPE) of “D”, very good for Paris. The charges including the janitor, the elevator, the heating, the cold and hot water, and all the expenses, are limited to approximately 460 €/month. Finally, a large and very healthy cellar in the basement is associated with the apartment. The co-ownership is well managed and does not face any major works. Property tax 1800 €/year.
In the district, one will note the immediate proximity in a radius of 100 meters of a large grocery store Franprix, a Picard (frozen grocery), a bakery/pastry shop, a pharmacy and a little everywhere of all the shops and services. There is an outdoor market along round building “maison de la radio”; also the banks of the river Seine and the island “ile aux cygnes”, the shopping mall Beaugrenelle right in front and many restaurants or activities. It is Sectorized with high school Lycée Jean-Baptiste Say. Located between metro lines 9, 10 and the RER C.
