THE PLACE •
The detail starts at the cobblestone walkway. You will notice the cast stone base. Just as powerful as the limestone used in the centuries old buildings in France. At the top of the cast stone there is a water table as it meets the brick. The horizontal brick string course meets another water table as it reaches the roof deck. Ornamental downspouts and gutters further enhance the exterior. On top of the parapet wall of the roof terrace you will find capstone and finally an octagonal chimney element. The windows will all have metal and cast stone details.
Place des Vosges combines old world and modernism in a clean design, punctuated with sophisticated ornamentation.
Inside - you will find detailed columns, double groin vaulted ceilings brick floor laid in a herringbone pattern. A contemporary chandelier is seen at each point in the groin vault.
With its big, raging fireplace and heavy, inset bookshelves it carries a masculine appeal. Wood beams and French doors to the exterior provide a cozy retreat.
There is also a bedroom and bath on the 1st floor which is ideal for a home office, guest room or an older child’s room. And –if you don’t want to carry the groceries upstairs – take the roomy elevator.
The elegant wood steps, delicate metal balusters, and handrails accentuate the vertical spire of the staircase. Sconces will light your path all the way up the stairs.
2nd Floor Foyer
The landing as you step onto the second level is a welcoming space into the rest of the home with a window seat and textured hardwood floors.
The living areas – living, kitchen and dining The expansive living area is well lit with a Juliet balcony and arc lights above the shelving. The floor in this space is going to have a different pattern, creating a sense of separation.
The kitchen is a soulful combination of old craftsman and new technology. Its base, crown and casing have an ornate appeal, but the custom millwork is more modern and functional with updated cabinetry and Miele appliances. The massive island houses a vegetable sink on top of the kitchen’s European travertine hexagon pattern floor. The countertop and backsplash is leathered black granite. Each home has a custom hood, becoming the focal point as you enter the kitchen. The Miele packages are top of the line with several upgradable options to add additional appliances to fit your lifestyle. There is a working pantry with shelving and built-ins for storage. The service corridor with butler’s pantry leads directly to the large formal dining area. The formal powder bath is located just outside of the dining room.
As you step upon the 3rd floor landing, you are greeted with a gracious sitting area. The master suite has an expansive master bath with an intricate tile pattern on the floor, a freestanding Victoria & Albert tub with integrated towel bar, a rain head shower with a bench and two luxurious vanities. The two closets in the master suite are expansive which compliment the spacious bedroom and bath.
A third bedroom with beautiful bath is also on the 3rd floor.
Roof terrace and 4th floor
The rooftop terrace will have views of city life and ornamental guard railing with upgradeable option for summer kitchen and fireplace. A large terrace, this is where you will spend your evenings – high above all of the hustle and bustle of the nation’s 4th largest city. Tucked into the oaks and pines – you are literally – enjoying a bird’s view of the best part of the city – the view, the sunrise or sunset. And there is always a breeze up top.
A large gameroom provides the perfect space to lounge during your favorite sporting event or to entertain while grilling on the terrace. There is room for a computer nook for homework or game tables or a craft room.
A spacious 4th bedroom and bath is also located on the 4th floor.
