A property in a building, on the French Supplementary Historic Monument List,
part of the Cité-de-Trévise in the Faubourg-Montmartre district
Paris, PARIS paris 75009 FR

Location

The Cité-de-Trévise, a housing estate some 190 metres long, is to be found between Rue-Richer and Rue-Bleue, in the Faubourg Montmartre district. Constructed in 1838, it is named after Adolphe-Édouard-Mortier, first duke of Trévise, General under Napoleon and President of the French Cabinet under the French King, Louis-Philippe. This is how it was described in the press in the 19th century: “Located near the boulevards, in the centre of the high-level commerce and banking sector, this new housing estate, the mansions and houses of which are laid out around a parterre dotted with flowers, offers a most pleasant haven amidst the noise of business and pleasure activities”.
Nowadays the estate is still peaceful and set in a sought-after area. The Folies-Bergères, the Conservatoire and Trévise family are nearby. South-Pigalle, the Hôtel-Drouot and Galeries Lafayette a little further away. This flat is but a few minutes from Cadet (line 7) and Grands-Boulevards (lines 8 and 9) underground stations and less than 20 minutes’ walk from Gare-Saint-Lazare.

Description

The unusual feature of Cité-de-Trévise is its green open, landscape area, taking pride of place in its centre, from which two streets part from opposing corners. Enclosed by railings, the garden is planted with sycamore trees. In the middle, a fountain with three nymphs holding hands, the work of sculptor Francisque-Joseph-Duret. The architectural style of the estate predominantly reflects that of the Renaissance era. The moulded architraves at the windows, the arched openings and the walls, featuring grooved joints, of some of the buildings are taken from the Italianate neo-classical style. Some buildings, including the one housing this particular flat, are enhanced with architectural features, included since 1991 on the French Supplementary Historic Monument List
Once through the elegant carriage gates, with their tall wrought iron panels, their access protected by an interphone security system, a porchway gives access to double glazed doors where a hall paved with inlaid marbled houses a wide, semi-circular stairway, covered with a carpet runner. At the end, a courtyard closed by another side of the U-shaped building, provides access to the utility floors. In this flat laid out on the road side, the hall and the stairway are included on the French Supplementary Historic Monument List.
A single flat can be reached on every floor via double doors, with lateral panels as well as glazed upper sections and fanlights, protected by a metal grill typical of the Louis-Philippe style.
This L-shaped, through flat still has all of its original decorative traits and features: solid oak wood parquet flooring, cornices and moulded cap moulding, ceiling roses, doors with moulded panels, fireplaces with marble mantels and trumeaux with gilt frames, a Prussian wood-burning stove, embellished with ceramic tiles and wrought-iron espagnolette window bolts.
Four large, double-glazed, double windows, fitted with outdoor slatted shutters, widely illuminated three adjoining rooms which are all accessed via an entrance gallery: a main bedroom, a living room and a study, with its solid oak wood bookcases. On one side, a guest toilet separates the main bedroom from a second bedroom, with a window overlooking the courtyard. Opposite, a dining room, with the Prussian wood-burning stove, is illuminated via a window overlooking the courtyard. And lastly, a corridor gives access to a bathroom and a kitchen, both with windows overlooking the courtyard.
The heating is electric and domestic hot water produced by a hot water tank installed in the kitchen. A large cellar in the basement can be reached via the back stairway off the courtyard.

Our opinion

Residents can but dream of the charm of the Belle-Époque in this estate with its outstanding architectural homogeneity, where the Nouvelle-Athènes (New Athens) area meets theatres and museums. Its delightful garden, with its tall sycamore trees, where the water of the fountain with its nymphs murmurs, exudes a harmonious symphony of tranquillity. The shadow of Toulouse-Lautrec still floats between the village, once known as SoPi (South-Pigalle) and the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette district. From that moment on, fashionable artists and creators have mingled in the pedestrian streets, abounding in more and more vegetation. In these sought-after surroundings, this sober, immaculately kept flat will perfectly suit a family courtesy of its ingenious layout which is easy to move around and enhanced with luminous rooms.
