A 4-bedroomed, family flat on the 4th floor of a Haussmannian building
in the Chaillot district, near to Boulogne Wood in the west of Paris’ 16th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75016 FR

Location

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.
It is here in a quiet street, set between the verdant Avenue-Foch and Avenue-de-la-Grande-Armée, composed of impressive Haussmannian buildings with their homogeneous architecture, that this flat is to be found. 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.

Description

This luxury, corner building was constructed from sculpted dressed stone and embellished with balconies, featuring wrought iron railings or stone balusters, on the second and fifth floors. The covering of its roof with slate and its small-paned windows make this a typical example of the architecture and aesthetic codes of the Second Empire.
The entrance to the building is protected by a wrought iron door, fitted with numerical keypad and videophone security systems. The communal areas, with their marble floors, featuring inlaid decoration, are kept immaculate by a caretaker. The main stairway is lined with a thick carpet runner and a modern, comfortable lift goes to all the floors, each housing two flats. Another back stairway also goes to all the flats and the former maids’ bedrooms on the top floor.
Double armoured doors, providing access to this fourth floor flat, open into a spacious area which, linking the entrance hall and the living room, is illuminated on either side by two large, small-paned windows, opening on to the facade balconies. The herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring, laid throughout the flat, is in an excellent state of repair.
The entrance hall leads, on the facade side, to a vast, 48 m² reception area, the open-plan, contemporary kitchen of which is fully fitted and functional. At the end, a door protects the night-time area. A hall area provides access to three bedrooms, each spanning more than 16 m², with their full-length, double windows opening on to balconies. Following on are a bathroom, a shower room and a toilet. A door at the end gives access to the main bedroom, spanning more than 40 m². This area includes a dressing room, a comfortable bathroom and a separate toilet. The room, set in the corner of the building facade, is illuminated by two windows, one of which features a basket-handle arch.
Domestic hot water and heating are provided by communal systems. A basement cellar and a former maid’s bedroom on the sixth floor complete this property.

Our opinion

In an outstanding setting where souvenirs of the history of France are engraved on every stone, this flat forms a perfect link between the past and the present, between the classical and the modern as well as between the sober, elegant architecture of the 19th century and the distinguished, refined decor of the 21st century. The entire flat recently underwent renovation works, patiently and enthusiastically carried out so as to create a reasonably-sized, family home. If anything here is superfluous or excessive, it is the abundance of everyday home comforts. The former maid’s bedroom adds an appreciable space for a study, an office, a spare bedroom or an area to be rented out.
