A bright, quiet, 178 m², 2-storey flat, on the top floors with a view of the Sacré-Cœur, just a stone’s throw from Tuileries Gardens and Place Vendôme.
Facing Tuileries Gardens, the tall arcades of Rue-de-Rivoli conceal many a gem. A heavy door, with a numerical keypad security system, opens into a safe lobby leading to a long, covered porchway, which provides access to a paved courtyard and its palm trees. Standing behind the buildings that border Rue-de-Rivoli, a U-shaped, Restoration style building features slatted shutters and fine moulding. A few steps lead to an entrance hall, enhanced with cement tiles. This extremely elegant building is immaculately kept and has a caretaker on the premises at all times.
On the fifth floor, this flat can be accessed via a modern glazed lift. A second storey room is on the sixth floor. The T-shaped layout, with its triple aspect, bestows the flat with great luminosity and numerous points of view. It comprises an entrance hall, a guest toilet, a large lounge, a dining room, a large kitchen and a small lounge which could be used as a spare bedroom courtesy of an adjoining shower room and toilet. Further on are two bedrooms, a dressing room and a shower room with a toilet. A stairway goes up from the dining room to a large room under the rafters, illuminated via several skylights. This can be used as a vast study or be transformed into another bedroom. There is a spacious vaulted cellar in the basement. This extremely economical flat has been renovated throughout by an architect.
The flatReached via a lift, this 178 m² flat (or 159 m² when measured in accordance with the French Carrez law) is on the fifth and sixth or top floors of the building. In fact, a fifth floor flat has been linked to the attic space on the floor above.
The main level comprises an entrance hall which opens into a spacious corridor. It provides access, right, to a 19 m² bedroom, with wonderful views over the Parisian rooftops stretching as far as the Sacré-Cœur. In this bedroom, a second door leads to a dressing room, a bedroom and a shower room with a toilet. Double glazed doors, on the left-hand side of the entrance hall, open into a large, 77 m², L-shaped reception area, set out around the main courtyard.

The room in question is fitted with a discreet, contemporary style, wood-burning stove. It extends into the small lounge, which could also be used as a spare bedroom courtesy of its adjoining shower room and toilet. Further on, a large, fully fitted kitchen, spanning almost 17 m², is illuminated via a window overlooking a small courtyard. The modern units reflecting shades of grey form an elegant contrast with the light-coloured terracotta floor tiles.
