Louvre royal 2BR
Rare 2 Suites apartment rental located in Paris 1st arrondissement, 5 minutes walk from the famous Louvre museum. With Francois Pinault’s contemporary art Museum due to open just doors away, Rue Jean Jacques Rousseau is now one of the trend-setting streets of the Right Bank. Nevertheless, it retains its old-world charm, with lovely cafes, quirky boutiques and the enchanting Passage Vero-Dodat. The apartment is situated on the 3rd floor, courtyard side, of a pleasant building with 2 security codes. Sunny and light. No lift (although this has been voted), no concierge.
Comfort and functionality embrace a poetic décor with classical references. The entrance, its wallpaper featuring iconic Parisian monuments, opens onto the living room. A painted mural of Ovid’s Metamorphoses enhances a 1940’s velvet recliner and an L shaped sofa. In front of the decorative fireplace a round dining table can be extended to comfortably seat 6 guests. A floor carpet is also available. The two spacious bedrooms feature high- quality mattresses and bedding, closet space and drawers. In both rooms, an armchair, a writing table and selected books are a thoughtful addition. The ensuite bathrooms have cast-iron baths, shower attachments and traditional Victorian-style radiators. (Note: If desired, Bedroom 2 can be used as a home office or formal dining room, since the double bed is easily stored). A corridor leads to the guest WC and then the kitchen. Created with carved elements from a Neo-Gothic castle, the kitchen is nonetheless perfectly adapted to the demands of a 21st century cook! Porcelain and silverware are suitable for both everyday use and smart receptions. A pullout table seats 2/3 for cosy dinners and snacks.
Owned by an international art gallerist, this elegant apartment - featured in prestigious magazines, including Conde Nast’s ‘House & Garden’ - reflects a long-term commitment to a sustainable lifestyle. Wood floors, antique furniture and natural textiles are free of harmful glues and dyes, while paints used are non-toxic and cleaning products are environmentally friendly and allergen-tested.
