This apartment is a 2nd and 3rd floor apartment (1st and 2nd étages in France). Upon entry, there is a large foyer, a high ceiling balanced by an original Maurer chandelier, closets, credenza and large mirror.
The first level starts with a large (about 600 sq ft) living and dining room. The ceiling is 13 ft high, three full height French windows, luxuriously furnished, with original paintings.
Facing the french windows, there is a glass partition opening to the second part of this floor and to the mezzanine/TV room. Blinds provide privacy when required.

Both bedrooms overlook the building's private garden, next to a religious retreat. (The apartment is in a building that was owned by a religious order until the 1950's.)
The top floor also includes a mezzanine TV room.
One parking spot downstairs, another space could be available if the owners, who have another apartment in the building, are not in town.
Public transportation offers three Métro stations within 5 minutes walk ( Sèvres Babylone, Rue du Bac and Saint Germain des Prés), bus stops and taxi stands. One is right in front of Lipp, lines to be expected at peak hours, when it rains or for no reason at all. Walking is also an option , we recommend crossing the Seine over the Academy bridge, or the Pont Henri IV, an excellent wine bistro in the middle of the bridge is available for relief.
This exclusive 2nd and 3rd floor apartment is located in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the cultural, artistic, and fashion center of Paris: One block away from the Saint-Germain church and fashionable literary watering holes Café de Flore, Les Deux Magots and Brasserie Lipp, a stroll away from the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Musée Maillol - which is located right next to Barthelmy's, arguably the best cheese shop in the western world!
