We helped American owners from Virginia remodel and finish a beautiful one/two bedroom Paris apartment next to Ecole Militaire in the 7th. They chose the name Quincy, named after the Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley. The wine is softer than others from this region, capturing the essence of the Loire without a high price tag. Like the wine Quincy offers excellent value in a superb location.
What we love about the apartment is that it’s next to the Champs de Mars Gardens, on the border of the very-French 15th arrondissement and the old Parisian 7th arrondissement. It represents true French living, with nearby access to the famous rue de Commerce and the wonderful Grenelle open air market. You won’t see as many tourists, but you’re right in the heart of everything with easy access to monuments, great restaurants and … shopping! From the fashion boutiques on the rue de Commerce, to the French ‘Target’ or Monoprix at the Motte Piquet metro, to the well-known Village Suisse, home to an abundance of antique stores. Transport is ideal with the metro only 3 minute’s walk as well as numerous buses that wend their way throughout Paris .
The Quincy apartment in Paris is located in a pretty building on a quiet street off Blvd de Grenelle. Located on the 6th floor with elevator, it combines traditional French architecture, from the original fireplaces to oak parquet floors — with modern conveniences. Loads of sunlight and views of the Eiffel Tower from the kitchen and master bedroom make it a wonderful home for your next sojourn in Paris .
The owners loved the double living room created for our Saint Julien apartment in Paris, where tall sliding doors create a sunny double room during the day, but can be closed to create a second bedroom at night. Our architect created the same look in the Quincy apartment, making two separate areas.
The front half of the living room is charming with long sofa and facing armchair that surround the fireplace. The colors they chose are warm reds and golds. On the right of this room is a modern wenge wood and glass dining table that expands to seat six. Not shown is the flat screen TV, dual standard DVD player and free high-speed internet.
The second half is a comfortable study with a clic-clac sofa bed that easily slides open to make a queen-sized bed. With separate entryway, you can slide the paneled doors closed and have two separate rooms at night. As with most of the apartments we manage, we import the sofas from Italy who we believe offer the highest quality materials and mattresses available.
The master bedroom is one of our favorite rooms, decorated in pale blue green with ivory wood headboard. There are lovely antique features such as the small paintings and lights above to the fireplace. Another flat screen TV with DVD player means children can watch a movie in the bedroom while parents relax in the living room. The owners found the lights nearby and they are a beautiful addition in the form of elegant brass swans. And of course, the incredibly romantic of the Eiffel Tower at night is a bonus in itself.
The kitchen is nicely remodeled with all conveniences in a combination of white lacquer and pale wood. But you’re immediately drawn to the large window, where you’ll find the most charming view of the Eiffel Tower through the paned glass windows. With all modern appliances you can shop at the large Grenelle open air market or excellent local merchants nearby and dine at home with family and friends.
The fully renovated bathroom features a modern above-the-counter sink, large walk-in shower and heated towel racks. There is also a separate WC located just off the entrance, which is convenient in Paris apartment rentals for extra getting-ready room.
