Mission Impossible- Apartment with a view

Our client gave us an almost impossible mission: find an apartment that can serve as a pied-à-terre for his family of 3 children, compact (without any space lost), in an old Parisian building and with an elevator…and with…a view of the Eiffel Tower!

After long months of research, lots of disencouragement, ridiculous prices, worthless visits, we found the needle in the haystack!

This apartment was partially, however badly done, renovated and will be entirely renovated soon..

The view- is simply perfect!

More to follow….

Progress of renovation at rue Cler

One wouldn’t have thought that this apartment would be finished in time for Christmas!

The work in the apartment that we presented to you in September is advancing well, the owners want to be able to stay here before Christmas so we have put everything in place so that the apartment is ready. Even if you wouldn’t think it by looking at these photos, everything in the apartment will be finished in time!

The wall dividing the former dining room and the living room was removed without a problem, and the same was done for the wall between the kitchen and the bathroom. The kitchen was moved into the living room, which required hiding the plumbing in the wall at entrance. The two bathrooms were also put into the space where the kitchen and bathroom previously were.

The bespoke cupboards have been built, the original parquet has been sanded, varnished and protected and the walls and the ceilings have been repaired and plastered.

The next steps: the painting, the finishing touches and the several deliveries of furniture which has been picked out by our team.

Watch this space for more updates.

Our New Project in the Heart of the seventh District

Our A La Carte Invest team found a two bedroom apartment, for a family living in London and who will soon come to live in Paris. The layout of the apartment doesn’t waste any space and is situated on a sought after road in the 7th disrict of Paris.

The apartment was completely untouched and had a very vintage feel. It was going to need a very large renovation in order to bring it into compliance with standards and to bring it up to date. The parquet flooring and the original fireplaces will be preserved and enhanced.

The former bathroom, which was packed into a tiny space, and the former kitchen will be transformed into two shower rooms and the kitchen will be moved into the living area, which will become a double living space once the dividing wall has been removed.
