This wonderful townhouse in the Marais is just around the corner from the lovely Place des Vosges. It has four suite/apartments, accommodating up to ten persons. It functions as either a large townhouse that can sleep up to 10, or as four private apartments, each with its own bedroom, sitting or living area, bathroom and kitchen or kitchenette.
It is decorated with antique, period-style, and contemporary furnishings and fine art which complement the faithfully restored medieval architecture, all of which reflect the designer/owner’s signature high-style, understated luxury and sense of comfort.
This is a terrific rental for a family or for friends sharing yet wishing for private accommodations as well. One may rent one, two or three suite/apts. as needed or, of course, the whole house.
Master Suite: the master apartment accommodating 1-2 persons
- High ceilings, massive oak beams, limestone tiles and wide-plank flooring are hallmarks of the largest apartment. The dramatic foyer with tall windows, unique armoire and large Flemish-style chandelier opens through double-doors to the bedroom with its three-meter-high tester bed and limestone hearth. A vaulted passage leads down five steps from the foyer to the Salon with its Renaissance wood-burning fireplace, deep velvet sofa and high-backed chairs. A second sofa, in Louis XIII-style, forms a cozy corner and fronts a dining table suitable for up to 8 people. This apartment, with its fully-equipped stainless-steel kitchen is eminently suited for entertaining.
Studio suite: 1-2 persons
- This charming suite features red and white “toile de Jouey” wall covering and a large collection of shorebird lithographs by an 18th century naturalist. A wood burning fireplace with facing chairs make a charming sitting area for two. Wide plank flooring and ancient beams further enhance the traditional and thoroughly romantic atmosphere. In addition to the main room there is a kitchenette and a windowed, fully marbled bath. This apartment makes a most convenient “extra bedroom” to the Maitre apartment.
Duplex suite: 1-4 persons
- A windowed entry with a limestone arched kitchenette gives out to a light flooded double height “studio” living room. A stair and catwalk lead to the mezzanine bedroom with a mansard window and also view over the lower level. The living room is arranged with two deep daybed/sofas flanking a wood burning fireplace and a round table with Louis XIII style dining chairs at the window. The soaring white walls, the ancient beams and antique terracotta tile flooring give this suite rustic simplicity and drama.
Top floor studio: 1-2 persons
- The top floor apartment has “tented” striped walls and ceiling and a mirrored alcove bed in a traditional “campaign” style. There is mahogany furniture, a dormer window-seat and cafe table as well as an upholstered Louis XIII-style armchair. A separate beamed and skylit entry area and kitchenette lead to a windowed bath with a large stall shower. Though fully equipped and self contained this might also make a most suitable “extra bedroom” to the duplex suite.
