Large, privately owned 1 bedroom apartment (44m2 ) in a typical 18th C Marais building, just renovated by an interior designer in an eco-friendly spirit. All materials and furnishing have been chosen keeping in mind the preservation of natural resources, limiting chemicals, upcycling, sourcing locally and employing organic materials whenever possible (e.g.the paint is seaweed based). This elegant space is situated on the 5th floor (walk-up) in a recently (2022) renovated bourgeois building dating from the 18th C. It is ideally located in the heart of the vibrant Haut Marais neighbourhood, a stone’s throw from Rue de Bretagne and a 5 minute walk from major metro station République. The building is ultra safe, with 2 entrance doors (code and buzzer) and features a bicycle room on the ground floor. The apartment has been entirely refurbished to meet modern standards, in an eco-friendly spirit. It features antique beams, reclaimed oiled hardwood and traditional hexagonal tile (tomettes) floors, a brand new kitchen made with recycled materials, a large bathroom with walk-in shower and a spacious bedroom. Both elegant and charming, it is filled with light due to its high elevation, triple exposure, numerous windows and bright colour schemes, inspired from Provence and Tuscany. It features a comfortable salon with decorative fireplace, renovated oak floors and original restored antique furniture mixed with functional contemporary pieces, including a single sofa bed for an occasional guest. The bedroom is fitted with a Queen size bed with storage and brand new natural Latex mattress, linen sheets and hypoallergenic beddings. Two closets and a chest of drawers provide plenty of wardrobe space, whereas every nook has been optimised to offer additional areas for stowing away. The large bathroom has a window for natural light, a walk-in shower, towel heater, washing machine, large sink and additional storage cabinet. The 80 l brand new, low consumption hot water heater is also located here. The cleverly designed kitchen is open to the living room and is fully equipped with induction hobs, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator with separate freezer, microwave/toaster oven, Nespresso, kettle and toaster. The bar can comfortably seat 3 people and is overlooking the dining area, with its restored antique table and chairs. The large separate WC has been turned into a unique reflection space, with warm colours, organic forms and carefully designed custom furniture. This non-smoking property is fully furnished and equipped, with high-end beddings, linen sheets and towels. It is also fully serviced, making it ideal for expatriates in need of a hassle-free home. All charges are included in the rent (electricity up to 70 euros/month, Internet, phone, cable TV, water, building charges) It is available immediately for medium and long-term rentals.
