Property description
A 320 m², 1930’s style house, with a patio and a garage, very near to the Bois-de-Boulogne in Paris’ 16th arrondissement - ref 373715
This elegant but unusual facade, typical of the 1930’s architecture, with its wide windows, fronts a freehold house. Recently and outstandingly renovated using quality materials, the owners have taken great care to preserve the period markers that give it its character. The lower level comprises a comfortable kitchen, a 2-car garage, two cellars and a separate toilet as well as laundry and boiler rooms. Following a flight of steps, a vestibule provides access to the reception level which opens on to a patio, where there is a summer eating area. A comfortably balanced, quarter-turning stairway goes to the three upper floors. On the first floor are a suite, with its library, featuring a bull’s eye window, a lounge area, a dressing room and a bathroom. The second floor comprises two bedrooms and their adjoining shower rooms. On the top floor, under the exposed roofing framework, a last suite is illuminated via seven windows set in the roof.

The house

Just like its neighbour, this residence was designed by architect Louis-Salvan at the end of the 19th century. And yet, there is no trace of its original facade, which combined brick and stone in a highly fashionable, neo-renaissance style. The latter disappeared during the first set of major renovation works carried out on the house in the 1930’s. Owners of the premises have preferred to give the building a more sober appearance, typical of modern architecture. A level above the garage was added in 1948. The latest modifications date from 2009. Furthermore, this house has been subject to a resolution of the “Commission du Vieux Paris” (Commission on Old Paris), favouring its classification as a protected building.

Our opinion
This residence stands soberly and elegantly amongst Haussmannian buildings in one of the French capital’s upmarket districts, where well-known families and celebrities live. Refined curves and minimalism are blended together to create a harmonious property that is easy to move around. Everything has been designed to maximise space and the slightest source of light. But it is the site which makes this a rare and invaluable property. Accompanied by the prestigious Lycée-Janson-de-Sailly, the Bois-de-Boulogne and its sports facilities as well as the most well-known museums and luxury shops, this house has all the assets required to provide an excellent way of family life in the midst of the French capital.
