A house reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties with period decorations
on a discreet street, between Parc Monceau and Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré
Paris, PARIS paris 75008 FR


An undeveloped landscape and favourite hunting ground for the nobility until the 19th century, the Plaine-de-Monceau only began to be developed in the 1850s, when the Pereire brothers laid out the main arteries of the future 8th arrondissement, under the direction of Baron Haussmann. At that time, the capital's most illustrious families began to take up residence here and built the sumptuous private mansions that border on one side the Parc Monceau extending over 8 ha and the surrounding streets. To this day, this district of the 8th arrondissement is considered a hub of luxurious living. The street where the property is located owes its name to a descendant of Napoleon I. As for the land on which it was built in 1925, it belonged to the widow of this hero of the Great War, Princess Murat, also known as Princess of Ponte-Corvo. The six-storey dressed stone building also was once the headquarters of the Société de Sports de France.


Through the heavy wrought iron gate, the entrance hall boasts a striking 3.90 metre high cross-vaulted ceiling. The floor is laid with diagonal marble tiles forming black and cream diamonds.
The entrance hall with its succession of arched windows, one of which is equipped with a double-glazed door, also provides access to the other two levels of the property. The lower level comprises a gym with a shower room and sauna on one side; on the other, a lounge, a boiler room and a cellar.
The upper level is accessed from the entrance via a majestic marble staircase with a masonry balustrade topped by Art-Deco style wrought ironwork supporting the handrail. On the main floor, on the left, the lounge is illuminated by three large arched windows overlooking the garden. The walls are clad with solid oak panelling, vertically punctuated by leaning columns with sculpted capitals. The floors are of solid parquet. At 4.60 metres from the floor, the ceiling features a stepped perimeter cornice and indirect lighting. Opposite the entrance, the stone fireplace accentuates the axis of the room and display cabinets are positioned on either side. On the other side of the room, the kitchen is partly open to the dining room and its large window overlooking the street. A corridor serves the master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and two other bedrooms, each with its own tiled shower room. A toilet is also accessed from the corridor. This level can also be reached from the communal areas of the building, through another door. An independent studio flat on three levels is accessed from the entrance: On the ground floor, the kitchen opens onto a living room and a wooden staircase leads up to a mezzanine with a sleeping area. A second concrete staircase leads to the lower level. An intermediate landing serves the lavatory. A few steps further down is a bedroom with a window and a bathroom at the back. The property includes part of a commercial property.

Our opinion

The oak panelling from the Roaring Twenties has resonated with the voices of the great decision-makers in equestrian sport. For almost a century, the bronze handle of the heavy ironwork door has discreetly given access to this distinctive property, which was pushed open by illustrious racehorse owners and breeders. The stately entrance with its marble floor, the monumental staircase and its wrought ironwork, the former boardroom of the Société de Sports de France and its woodwork are preserved. The high ceilings and the large reception areas have been enhanced thanks to the renovation of this property. Wear Poiray jewellery for parties in the style of Jeanne Lanvin and enjoy great evenings.
