23 m2 (247.5 sq. ft.), Second Floor
This is an exceptionally well equipped, recently renovated studio apartment, decorated in subtle grey and celadon green, by our illustrious interior designer and architect, Martine di Mattéo.
The apartment is located on the 2nd floor of a 19th-century building whose common areas were entirely renovated in 2019. There is no additional work planned for in the immediate future. Rue Commines is a one-way street in the bustling and trendy Haut Marais, just steps from the popular rue de Bretagne, the Les Enfants Rouges market (the oldest covered market in the city dating back to 1615) and the Cirque d’Hiver (an 1852 historic monument home to a traditional European-style circus). The neighborhood is one of the city’s oldest, steeped in history, and living here offers the finest of addresses. Property values have increased substantially in the last 20 years in this historic part of Paris where buildings date back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
The focal point of this professionally designed space is the queen-sized bed (which easily converts to twins when desired), topped by a magnificent oval mirror, surrounded by custom cabinetry that provides lots of storage as well as a desk at which you can pen your memoirs. Opposite the bed between the two large, new double-paned windows overlooking rue Commines, is a round wooden dining table with two chairs, illuminated by a fine chandelier. To one side of the table is a comfortable, period armchair. The luxurious bathroom houses a glass shower, large sink with vanity, heated towel rack, and toilet.
The apartment is move-in ready and sold entirely furnished with all appliances, furnishings, drapes, linens, kitchenware, and utensils, estimated at 8,000€. Building fees: 900€ per year; Property tax: 361€ per year; Electricity 500€ a year.
