Maison Nicolas Flamel
"Very nice apartment, well located with inside garden at the access"
The unusual distribution of this charming original apartment in the Marais gives it all its charm. In an original way, the living room is elevated in relation to the dining room and the kitchen, which allows a separation of the spaces according to their function, without any wall blocking the view.
We enter the apartment by the living room, with volumes and a well studied decoration. Gray walls, low storage with sliding doors in blond wood, coffee table in a Louis XV style, boldly painted red: the atmosphere is both cozy and resolutely modern.
Going down a few steps, you enter the open kitchen and the dining room, whose windows overlook the pleasant private courtyard of the building. The kitchen is separated from the dining room by a bar. The steel details recall restaurant kitchens, and the metal is always softened by the presence of wooden surfaces.
A view of the Eiffel Tower by Guillaume Plisson and a view of the Ile de la Cité completes the decor to give an entire Parisian character.
From the living room, we have access to the adjacent double bedroom, with its luxurious wallpaper of foliage patterns, and the shower room to the right. Equipped with an industrial trolley with wheels and a washbasin on curved legs, it extends the contrast between classic and modern that is found in all the rooms of this charming original apartment in the Marais.
