(2) Artist's Studio in the Marais

Glorious Windows, Elegant Art

Here you will find clean, modern lines within a 200-year-old space of rough stone & brick walls and exposed wood beam ceilings. The owner/architect has renovated this light and airy large studio to give you a Parisian loft space, entirely open, with four great windows facing out to the street and the Place du Bourg-Tibourg, near the BHV in the Marais. The closest Metro is the Hôtel de Ville (lines 1&11).

You go up a tiny stair from the street to the second floor, and walk into the grand open living space. It has dining for four, a large bed for two and a fold-out sofa bed for one. There is high speed internet access and WIFI, cable TV, CD player and telephone. The kitchen has a full refrigerator and freezer, sink, gas and electric stove top, oven, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, microwave, coffee pot, tea kettle, glasses and dishes, pots and pans. The bathroom, following the general aesthetic, is not closed off but hidden behind a partition, keeping an open, airy quality to the space. There is a grand bathtub with shower behind the partition, and the toilet is secluded behind a curtain. Closet and storage space is plentiful. We supply sheets and towels.

About Me

My photo
Frankly, I never thought I'd end up living in Paris but - you see, I met a man. On a ski trip - Alps - chalet - fireplace - well, it's been twenty years. I can't give you the complete insider's guide to Paris yet, (I believe that takes three generations) but I can give you an ex-New Yorker's guide to this fabulous City of Lights. Our first studio was my husbands - that's where we lived once we decided to share a continent. We were there until our son was about negative-one-month old, and we didn't want to have to convert the bidet into a bassinet. Once we moved, I started renting out that apartment and everything fell into place. As an architect, I love fixing up the apartments, and as an ex-pat, I love meeting the people who come to enjoy their vacations in Paris. Now, we’ve also bought a property in the Loire Valley, and have just finished renovating that into several fabulous vacation homes – one of them is in a cave! You’ve got to see the pictures, it is a wonderful place – and the location is perfect for exploring the region – the chateaux, the wine, the scenery, it’s beautiful.
