Luxury apartment offers prime location in central Paris for $7 million

Paris’ 8and The arrondissement, or district, is widely known for the famous Champs Elysées, the high-end high-end shopping street that connects the Arc de Triomphe monument and Place de la Concorde. Every July, viewers from around the world watch the Corridor closely as the annual Tour de France cycling race finishes there.

What may not be apparent to the public eye is that the chic neighborhood is also a great place to call home – its street level lined with bakeries, food markets, offices, shops luxury goods, embassies and museums.

This classic apartment, located along Rue de la Ville L’Evêque, is approximately 300 meters from the iconic La Madeleine square and church and 200 meters from the fashionable Faubourg Saint Honoré shopping street – in the heart of Paris. Nearby is the Elysée Palace, the official residence of the President of France.

“This district of Faubourg Saint Honoré/Champs Elysées/Madeleine is highly sought after by international customers for its location,” says Charles Daireaux, listing agent for Groupe Mercure. Despite the adjoining activity, the site of the apartment is not overrun for those who live there. “The street itself is pretty quiet,” about half residential and half office, says Daireaux, who has more than 25 years of experience selling high-end real estate.

Occupying the fourth floor of an elegant 1910 building, the residence has been luxuriously appointed.

A marble-floored gallery provides access to 3,068 square feet of interiors including an expansive living room, updated kitchen with center island that opens to a dining room, office, four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a laundry room. The master bathroom has a standalone centerpiece tub.

“There aren’t many large apartments available in this area,” says Daireaux, “and it’s in excellent condition, luxuriously renovated with air conditioning – quite rare in Paris.”

Arched windows above French doors bring natural light into high-ceilinged rooms, which feature herringbone-patterned wooden floors. Interior glass walls allow light to pass from room to room, adding to a feeling of lightness.

The asking price for the turnkey property, which includes the furnishings, is 6.695 million euros, or approximately US$7.3 million.
