This large 150sqm sumptuous French palace doesn't scream luxury, it coughs politely and asks you to notice the no-expense-spared details. The extensive crown moldings on the ceilings and doors, the fine hardwood flooring, the generous size rooms. The little details like the kitchen having the wine cooler, and the cabinets built around the American fridge as the owner wanted ice cubes on demand. The custom make-up table built into the bedroom and the Jacuzzi size bathtub in the bathroom. This was renovated by somebody that had a plan but no budget in mind. It occupies the whole of the 3rd floor, with lift of course, and the living room is south facing and sunny. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a separate toilet. There is also a cellar that comes with it. If you are looking to live the French dream then come and view this apartment.
