The Royal Orsay Apartment is a classic residence in a superb 19th century building between the private residence of the Agha Khan and the d'Orsay museum, on the rue de Lille in the 7th arrondissement. The large iron gate is coded and there is a 24 hour manned security station just inside the arch to the courtyard.You enter the large doors of the building itself with a key. When inside the spacious entry, the third floor residence can be reached either via a roomy elevator or a grand sweeping staircase decorated with original art and marble.
Upon entry to the residence apartment, there is a lovely foyer decorated with antique mirror, upholstered bench, and bureau where guests can leave their coats and umbrellas in the guest closet adjacent. To the left is a short hall that leads to a classy powder room and the kitchen / breakfast room. The kitchen is exquisite, newly remodeled with all new appliances, cherry cabinetry, exceptional lighting, and the breakfast area with table and chairs. Here there is a window looking out over the spacious and well kept courtyard. (There is also a service door at the end of the kitchen that is reachable through the courtyard.) From the foyer on the right is the smallest of the three bedrooms, a lovely and well decorated room with two single beds and a fireplace in the corner. Beyond the foyer is the elegant formal dining room, furnished with classic French antiques and chandeliers. This too has a lovely fireplace and an expandable table that can be used for small intimate dinners or larger sit-down formal dinners for up to 12, or elaborate buffet parties. The massive china cabinets furnish all the necessary service for either. Then comes the living room / main salon which is a large and comfortably furnished room again furnished very elegantly and offering television, game tables, and cozy conversation centers.
The bedroom off the dining room can be either furnished with a queen or two twins, depending on the client's wishes. Again this elegant room is furnished with antique armoirs and dressers, upholstered chairs, art, mirrors, and other elegant furnishings that match the high standard of the residence, and is accompanied with en-suite full bathroom with tub and shower.
The master bedroom is off the main salon. It's beautiful and spacious, decorated in elegant fabric walls that match the canopied queen bed. Here again you'll find a chandelier, many beautiful pieces of authentic antique French furniture, a walk-in closet, and a newly tiled and refurbished en-suite bathroom with tub and hand-held shower as well as American style shower.
The entire residence is a spacious and chic 1600 square feet, with a very comfortable floor plan. The owner can arrange internet access, extra phones, fax, parking, etc. as the client wishes. Included in the price are all taxes, weekly maid service, and fresh linens.
