Very close to the Trocadero and La Muette districts, in an ancient town house,
a 130 m2 family-sized duplex flat and its four bedrooms
Paris, PARIS paris 75016 FR


For centuries, the Passy district was known for its natural springs. In this little village located in the west of Paris, members of the French nobility and bourgeoisie, such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Benjamin Franklin, would come here to “take the waters”. They were particularly renowned for their charitable qualities. They are in fact more well-known than the springs in Forges, Aix-les-Bains and Vichy. Still today, some street names in the 16th arrondissement (rues des Eaux, rue de la Pompe, rue de la Cure) evoke the spa activity of the past. The flat is situated in a quiet street, between the Trocadero and Ranelagh gardens and surrounded by rue de la Tour and rue Scheffer. This street was once made up of small town houses and Haussmann style buildings. Close to the private lycees Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague and Saint-Jean-de-Passy, and La Tour, this neighbourhood has very good public transport services. Several different underground stations are just ten minutes away on foot.


This small building is an old town house, located in a quiet residential street in Paris’ 16th arrondissement. The duplex flat spans 130 m2 and takes over the two upper floors of the building. Entrance to the flat is on the third floor and it opens into reception areas. First, a fully fitted modern kitchen, and dining area, then a lounge looking out over the garden. The mouldings and high ceilings, fireplace, old waxed parquet floors and large bookcase give the property its discreet charm.
Then a double door opens into the master bedroom – also overlooking the quiet garden – and its en-suite shower room. To the right of the entrance, a small staircase, with deep-red carpeted stairs leads up to the second floor. It is the children’s floor. A corridor leads to three bedrooms with unobstructed views over the garden and Parisian roof tops on one side. On the other, the landing leads to a large bathroom with twin sinks, shower and bath, in an area with a slightly sloping ceiling. Leading on from here, a laundry room, a toilet and lots of storage space. All the rooms are well illuminated thanks to double windows fitted with espagnolettes, cross-bars and wrought iron railings. In the basement, two cellars complete this property.

Our opinion

After stepping into this typical Parisian flat, with its exposed beams and gorgeous high ceilings, one’s eye is immediately drawn to the trees through the large windows in the lounge. There are trees as far as one can see against a backdrop of Parisian roof tops. The view could be confused with that of a country home. However, this home is situated in the middle of the 16th arrondissement, just a stone’s throw away from the Trocadero gardens and Chaillot palace, close to the Parisian “Iron Lady” – Eiffel Tower. In an urban yet bucolic setting, this duplex flat is ideal for a family, with its four bedrooms, a children’s floor and its quality local shops and renowned schools.
