Moderne a Paris is an unexpected villa just ten minutes from the left bank in Paris. Hidden away in the heart of the city and sheltered behind a private courtyard- this luxurious sanctuary is close to the grand attractions of Paris; yet secluded enough to mimic country life.
Chic and cosmopolitan with elegantly modern furnishings and décor this 325 square meter villa has a calming white on white palette: white wooden floors, white marble and white furnishings. Charcoal accents add distinction and the owners’ remarkable collection of contemporary art, Chinese Han dynasty antiques and the tastefully eccentric colour detailing draw the eye and add interest.
The spacious salon’s soaring two-story ceilings house six meter high glass windows that gaze out over the tiered courtyard and Japanese style garden. Three massive divans provide seating on a grand scale that is perfectly proportioned to the spacious, eighty square meter salon. A fireplace, mantle and unique occasional tables complement the room. A bright and airy dining area with glossy table and modern eclectic seating for twelve to fourteen is adjacent to the salon. The well-equipped gourmet kitchen with stainless steel counters, backsplash and appliances lies just beyond.
The salon has direct access to the terrace for outdoor dining on an elegant table with benches and steps that lead down to the private garden area. The tiered garden features seating on several levels and includes a barbecue. The oudoor garden and terrace can easily entertain 20 guests on a festive evening or afternoon…a treasure hidden away in the heart of Paris.
The mezzanine of the villa is where the master suite is located. Overlooking the salon and garden, the suite takes up the entire second floor and includes a king sized bed and large LED TV. The en-suite, his-and-hers bath has recently been redesigned and renovated with the same deluxe materials and esthetic as the rest of the villa. With a striking, modern chandelier hanging in the bathing area and a marble bath, fireplace and expansive walk-in shower with a marble wall that is lit from the interior it is nothing short of spectacular.
The garden level floor holds the rest of the bedrooms and the media room. All of the rooms have access to the garden. The three bedrooms have queen sized beds and en-suite baths with walk-in showers. The media room, with four meter cinema screen, has a fold-away sofa bed, perfect for a child, and an en suite bath with walk-in shower.
Moderne a Paris has the rare qualities of seclusion and tranquility in a vibrant urban environment. Impeccably tasteful and elegantly appointed, it will make any visit to Paris unforgettable.
