Located at the very heart of Paris in the 2nd arrondissement, this superb, modern and unique small loft in duplex has been created in 2012.
Though it is located on the ground floor, the loft is full of light thanks to the many windows (7 in total) . From March to October it is even sunny in the morning !
And let's not forget the tranquillity: outstanding though being located in the centre of Paris, which is almost surprising.
It is at the same time a loft, a doll's house and a small British house. The entry of the property is located behind big plants and trees that constitute a 10 sq.m small private garden-terrace : love at first sight guaranteed...
After passing behind the natural barrier and opening the entrance door, you will find a unique universe: completely white from floor to ceiling, this doll's house is embellished with a precious and extremely rare marin aquarium . You will fall in love with this reef measuring more than 1.60 metres long.
A real parade of red, yellow, blue, pink and purple twirling around with joy right here in front of you: like being in the Maldives of Fiji's Islands in the very centre of Paris.
Brand new, the loft is equipped with full and recent furniture and appliances.
Do you also want to listen to your favourite music? Let's just plug in your Iphone, Ipad or computer to the handy Beosound 8, the top-of-the-range dock by Bang & Olufsen.
On the same ground floor you will find a shiny diamond white kitchen with dark black worktops, fully equipped (dishwasher , washing and drying machine , induction stoves ....)
A double glass console table with 4 uncluttered chairs will allow you to have dinner, lunch or breakfast with view on the huge fish tank.
Finally the shower room: a raining shower system makes you feel that water is coming from the ceiling, which is delightful and terribly enjoyable! ( beside the shower room boasts a large programmable towel dryer) .
The loft designer has carefully designed the lighting systems, made up of more than 30 spotlight bulbs all with intensity control, allowing you to modify the ground floor atmosphere as you wish to create a hushed or energizing ambiance! Nothing was left to chance, such as the two magnificent floor lamps, from the design firm 'Kundalini', located on each side of the aquarium...
Now let's go upstairs, on the mezzanine.
The open mezzanine is definitely the greatest success of the architect: it is very airy and seems to be settled in the centre of this large volume.
The height under mezzanine is around 1.90 metres but the shiny white of the apartment makes you feel it is higher.
It is a real free standing 'open space' with windows, a shimmering deep-red sofa bed (convertible in a 140x200 cm bed) and a large and ultra-comfortable queen size bed measuring 160x200 cm with perfect beddings.
(Important: please note the particular attention paid to sanitation in the whole loft, from the bed linen and the towels, to the meticulous cleaning of the shower room and the kitchen before the arrival of new guests. It is absolutely necessary for us to provide a perfect property ).
On the same level you will find a large Plasma 3D TV fitted in the wall ( 40'' ) as well as a 3D Blue-Ray, both Panasonic, a phone allowing you to phone for free towards numerous countries, an access to many TV channels and broadband Wi-Fi in the whole loft.
A large cupboard with closet and small table on casters and 2 varnished storage spaces on the walls will give you the space necessary to store your belongings and clothes.
Last comfort feature that cannot be ignored: heating and hot water.
A huge and hidden electrical tank with a capacity of 200 litres allows 4 people to live comfortably in the loft without having to worry about water, which is permanently hot, beside there is a private heating system with thermostat .
During summer there is an air-conditioning unit from the Italian firm 'Delonghi', allowing refreshing the whole loft.
And for your convenience a powerful purifier and dehumidifier is provided in the loft.
At last, a main point has been carefully considered: the security of the property.
The entrance door is reinforced twice and the whole loft is protected by an alarm and there is a built-in safe .
Extraordinary geographical location in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities of the world, with the fascinating sight of the coral reef of Fiji's or Maldives islands, this ultra comfortable, modern, quiet, bright, secured doll's house with an atypical and refined design, hidden by a natural barrier, will definitely contribute to make your stay in the City of Lights a unique and unforgettable experience.
Welcome to an out-of-the-ordinary place, welcome to your Parisian loft.
Your attention please! I need to come every 3 or 4 days to maintain the coral aquarium; it takes only a few minutes and our guests do not have to be on-site. I take the opportunity to take the rubbish out. Thank you.
Native from the centre of France, Parisian since many years, aesthete, keen of interior design, design and found of reef aquariums (that is to say rare sea animals with extraordinary forms and colours like corals, sea anemones, invertebrates such as crabs, shrimps or coral fishes).My only goal is the satisfaction and the well-being of our guests, and I am always available for them, at any time and for any question.
Fervent lover of Paris since more than 15 years, I always had the chance to live in the 2d arrondissement that I especially love. The amazing location allows to 'live Paris' the best way and this is why I bought this apartment close to my family apartment. To live in what is probably the most beautiful city in the world and in such conditions is an extraordinary chance that I will never forget since my daily life remember it to me. Nobody can ask for more, perhaps a few more days of sun...
Being lucky enough to live between two apartments, I decided to share my happiness by renting from time to time my property.
I really fell in love during my first visit in summer 2011. Even if I had my doubts about buying a ground floor apartment, one of my friends who knew the property well, highly recommended a visit and I cannot thank him enough.
Just entering the place - this very quiet place - which was not yet a loft but a simple area that has to be invented, created, I knew I had found my place.
It was at the end of August when I discover this doll's house with many windows, high ceilings (more than 4m30) and flooded with sun. I wanted to live in a unique place, to make it my own cocoon of well-being and beauty, a unique and original place and I sincerely and humbly think I have succeeded.
