On the Left Bank in Paris, in the 7th arrondissement and on the Place de Breteuil, a flat with a panoramic view over the roofs and the treetops.
In the purest spirit of the capital's smart, leafy residential areas with their wide, planted avenues, the backdrop is very much early twentieth-century style. The dressed stone building from this period spans 7 storeys and a rotunda emphasises the angle formed between the Rue Duroc and the Place de Breteuil. The entrance is from the Rue Duroc. Once through the wrought iron double doors, which are protected by a keycode entry system, the entrance hall flooring is marble mosaic tiles featuring floral motifs. The mouldings and cornices underline the Belle Epoque spirit. At the back, a double oak and glass door with an intercom system opens onto the stairwell and the lift. The fifth floor can be reached by lift or by the oak staircase with a thick woollen carpet and brass railings highlighting the steps. The sunlight pours through stained glass windows into the stairwell. There is only one flat on each floor. The plan of the flat is in the form of a triangle with a rotunda at the apex and offers a triple exposure. On one side of the flat are the kitchen and the connecting reception rooms, separated by double doors and ending with the rotunda. In the centre of this triangle is a large hallway. The rotunda, where a sitting room is located, leads on the other side of this triangle to the master suite of more than 30m2 with 2 dressing rooms and a bathroom with shower and separate toilet. Each of the 3 other bedrooms have their own en suite shower room and benefit from a southern exposure. They are bright and have a surface area of more than 15m2 with their independent access via a corridor, ensuring comfort and privacy. Although habitable in its current state, some refurbishment work would provide the opportunity to create a 5th bedroom, if required. The property includes a cellar. A basement parking space in a nearby building is also for sale as well as two former maids rooms on the 7th floor.
