Where do you want to go?
An astounding renovation by a talented interior designer has created a wonderfully light, romantic and spacious one bedroom luxury apartment in the very centre of Paris' 1st arrondissement. Apartment Lumiere du Nord is located on the 5th floor of a genuine Hausmann building in a quiet and leafy avenue in central Paris. A short stroll finds you on the banks of the river Seine, Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the historic Marais District. Access to the apartment is by electronic key. From the elevator, a short flight of steps leads up to the entrance of the apartment. Originally a typical Beaux Arts style apartment, the decor has been enhanced and reinterpreted by the owners to characterize the earlier, luminous and supremely elegant style of the Swedish Gustavian period, but with a modern twist. The rococo theme is given a new dynamic by the use of contemporary furnishings and complementary style icons by such famous designers as Philippe Starcke.
The excellent location of Apartment Lumiere du Nord offers the visitor to Paris a unique opportunity to be immersed in both the culture and the history of the City of Lights.
The apartment does not have air conditioning, which could not be installed for architectural heritage reasons. However, facing north, the apartment is light but not hot and benefits from a beautiful reflected luminosity from the warm sandstone of the building opposite.
Additional amenities include: hairdryer, two flat screen TVs with DVD player, two CD players, a telephone in every room, vacuum cleaner, ironing facilities, and a personal safe.
5 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY
The large and impressive living room has high ceilings and two tall double glazed windows giving attractive wide views of the sky and street below. The original marble fireplace and over-mantle mirror give the classic feel while the modern queen-size sofa bed offers comfort and style.
The bedroom is romantic and light, also with tall windows. It has its own original polished marble fireplace and a very generous amount of built-in wardrobe space. The queen size bed offers a deep but firm mattress. All the linens and towels are of the highest quality. Also in the bedroom is a flat screen TV. The dining room, also with large windows, is contiguous with the kitchen but can be completely separated by an ingenious system of "pocket doors", which slide away when not needed. It has a classic Gustavian-style table that can be extended to seat up to six guests. In the Swedish style kitchen there is a catalytic oven, induction stove with four hot plates, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a very effective exhaust hood. All cooking utensils and other small appliances are top quality.
The large bathroom has a full-size shower, basin, and designer toilet and bidet. A built-in cupboard offers a washer and separate dryer (with instructions in English).
The apartment is equipped with fax and answering machine and two Ethernet DSL internet connection outlets and Wi-Fi.
There are two LCD televisions plus cable decoders with 150 channels including CNN and BBC, a DVD player and a separate CD and radio sound systems complete the entertainment lineup.
In the hall closet, as well as space for baggage storage, there is a cyclonic HEPA vacuum cleaner, steam iron and ironing board plus a personal safe. The apartment has smoke alarms and a fire extinguisher.
SPECIAL NOTE: The elevator access is to alternate floors. There are ten steps to walk up from the elevator landing to the apartment if you press #4 or you can walk down if you press #6.
