A flat, awaiting renovation, on a high floor in a dressed stone building,
between Place-de-l'Alma and Trocadéro Gardens, on Chaillot hill
Paris, PARIS paris 75016 FR


Under the Second Empire, Baron-Haussmann was commanded by Napoleon III “to aerate, unify and embellish” Paris. The city was to be changed forever. Suburbs were razed to make way for wide avenues and vast areas for walking. Major levelling works were notably carried out on Chaillot Hill which consequently lost three metres, making it possible in 1869 to create the Place-du-Roi-de-Rome, around which wide streets were created heading off in a star shape: Avenue-de-l'Empereur, Avenue-du-Roi-de-Rome, Avenue-de-Malakoff and Avenue-d'Iéna.
This flat is to be found here in a quiet street, set between Place-de-l’Alma and Trocadéro Gardens, composed of impressive Haussmannian buildings with their homogeneous architecture. The renowned sixth form college, Lycée-Janson-de-Sailly, is but a stone’s throw away, as is Boulogne wood and numerous underground stations, making it easy to move around the French capital and to get to the airports in the Parisian region. A new underground train line will soon link Gare-du-Nord and Gare-de-l'Est.


The dressed stone building dates from the late 19th century. Its facade is a perfectly symmetrical reflection of the neighbouring building. Two impressive sets of oak wood, carriage gates, with semi-circular fanlights, stand side by side. Behind one of them, protected by a numerical keypad security system, a covered porchway features walls lined with pilasters and Doric order half columns under a ceiling enhanced with staff cornices. At the end, a vast, interior, planted courtyard is laid out around a cedar tree and flanked by planted parterres.
In the main hall, separated from the porch via double glazed doors, with an interphone security system, the floor is decorated with tiles forming roses on a background of terrazzo flooring. There, a wide, dark wood stairway, with turned balusters, is lined with a thick carpet runner, held in place against the risers by brass rods. Natural light filters on to the stairwell through wide, stained-glass windows. Opposite, a lift with a mesh facade goes to all levels.
This flat is laid out in an L-shape on the fourth floor. The entrance hall leads directly to a lounge, visible through double glazed doors. The floor is laid with herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring. Under a 3.25 m high coffered ceiling, cap moulding and a marble fireplace are enhanced by light flooding in through two double casement windows. Behind, a dining room, a fitted kitchen and a first bedroom are laid out one after another and can also be reached via a corridor, lined along its full length with moulded cupboards. Further on are another three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
A service door in the corridor gives access to a stairway which goes up to a maid’s bedroom, with a sloping ceiling, on the sixth floor. This bedroom is sold separately from the flat. A car parking space in the basement of a neighbouring building is also sold separately.

Our opinion

In this upmarket, sought-after district in Paris’ 16th arrondissement where souvenirs of the history of France are engraved on every stone, the buildings reflect all the late 19th century, elegant, classical architectural codes. This cleverly laid out and versatile flat, in the peace and quiet of its shady courtyard, is in need of renovation works to give it back all of its splendour of yesteryear. Right next to all amenities and some of the best schools in the French capital, this property could easily become a reasonably-sized, comfortable family home. The maid’s bedroom, to be purchased separately, would add an appreciable space for a study, an office, a spare bedroom or an area to be rented out.
